Talk:Priest quest

Is it worth the bother to dig up all the graves in the various graveyards? (so far, I haven't found anything in any of them...) Also, does the starting level count as a graveyard level with respect to the likelihood of wraiths leaving corpses? And is it just coincidence, or is Create Monster (in whatever form) more likely to produce undead on the quest level with the altar than on normal levels? Thanks! --Preceding unsigned comment added by Enehta (talkcontribs) 3-12-2007

I didn't find any valuables in the graves, just corpses and undead. I'm pretty sure the top level counts as a graveyard level, I find it much easier to get wraith corpses by pulling wraiths to the portal and killing them on the other side. I have no idea about create monster, good question. MysterX 17:00, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Graves in graveyards are always empty, don't bother. As for create monster, a certain percentage of randomly created monster is replaced with featured monsters in all of the quest, I'd guess that means undead in the priest case. As a side note, 3% of all randomly created monsters are wraith in the wizard quest, so wizards can easily level up if altar farming, too. Tjr 05:57, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I checked the source, and it appears there's nothing special about the priest quest that allows for Gehennom-only monsters to be normally generated. Several monsters on the priest quest can Summon Nasties, which will generate Gehennom-only monsters, but that's not unique to the priest quest. Csnook 10:14, August 12, 2010 (UTC)
