By 'E' at the end, to do you mean Elbereth, a monster with the letter E? Just wondering if this could be made clearer, maybe with a link.

I used a scroll of teleportation and it threw me one floor above. I think it should be mentioned... K00pa 14:28, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Cursed scrolls of teleportation will cause you to level teleport. This can put you any number of floors up (or down) the same branch of the dungeon you are in, with "zero" teleporting you around on the same level. It is not an effect unique to the level of Mine's End. -- Kalon 21:43, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

In the Mimic Of The Mines I found a barrow wight behind one of the secret doors. 12:35, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Catacombs strategy

Is there a recommended strategy to get the luck and/or flintstones off the level teleport traps in the Catacombs? If you use autopickup exceptions, and you don't have "gray stones" as one of your always-pickups (which it seems like you shouldn't), without a CoMR or GDSM to block the effect of the traps, I am not sure how to do it.

Jump into the trap. If you walk into a level porter, it gets destroyed. So any source of teleport control or MR will let you get to the stone without incident, otherwise you just need to run around the map some more. The real problem is that it isn't just flint stones and luck stones; you might get a load stone that you can't do a kick test for. A wand of teleportation will move the stone someplace where you can probably kick it (you might need a pickaxe) - this will also let you circumvent the trap itself, but you'll need to find the stone afterwards. A wand of cancellation will uncurse a potential loadstone before you pick it up, and anything else for removing a curse afterwards. Be sure to #name the stone if you pick up a load stone! -- Qazmlpok 04:02, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

Undead Monsters in Catacombs

I've noticed that, aside from mentioning the 2 random V, there is no special mention of undead in the catacombs. I'm just working from many past experiences here, but aren't there a few others? Is monster generation biased towards undead? I won't add anything though because I don't know the exact nature. 02:38, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Reading the MONSTER lines at the end of Source:NetHack 3.4.3/dat/mines.des#Catacombs there are:
  • 5 random M
  • an ettin mummy
  • 2 random V
  • 5 random Z
  • 4 random e
