Disintegration

Won't the quest artifact be disintegrated along with Master Kaen? Astral vision and slotless magic resistance are quite handy, so perhaps this strategy is more of a last-resort method. Tjr 22:25, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

Just tried it in wiz mode. He dropped the silver bell and eyes of the overworld when disintegrated. Only took 3 tries as well, so as long as you have enough power it's a fine strategy. -- Qazmlpok 23:22, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

Melee with conflict

While wearing a ring of conflict, I only took 18hp damage from Master Kaen over ~10 turns of melee without sleep/paralysis/regeneration, but I didn't check the battle spam and can't see any longer if that was thanks to conflict encouraging him to hit other monsters instead or RNG favor and -27 AC. Maybe conflict should be suggested for meleeing him? --207.244.66.70 11:03, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
