Rings of free action protect against mind flayer attacks in SLASH'EM, with a chance dependent on luck (at maxed out luck it's 90%). It says when you are attacked by the mind flayer, "The mind flayer grabs you, but you quickly free yourself!" In fact, it might actually protect against other grabbing attacks as well, I'm not sure, since I almost always get an oilskin cloak before a ring of free action -Ion frigate 22:46, January 1, 2010 (UTC)


I removed the note on cannibalism, as star vampires have the G_NOCORPSE flag. Yes, you could wish for a corpse in wizard mode, but I think that's a little marginal. -Ion frigate 23:56, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

I apologize, I probably should have done a bit more research before posting a bit of trivia I had recalled being mentioned. FWIW, fire vampires have the same attribute (no corpse, not a dracula, but cannibalism for vampires) --Ilya86 03:32, 2 December 2010 (UTC)–


Are these things invisible, like their source monster? 13:00, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes. -- Qazmlpok 14:27, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

The other three attacks?

The wiki says that there are six attacks, three of which drain life. But under the “Attacks” section, it only mentions those three. What are the other three? Elronnd (talk) 15:01, 11 March 2015 (UTC)Elronnd

maybe i'm misunderstanding, but i think the six attacks thing means "it has a chance to hit you for 2d6 damage six times each turn, and if three of those hit you they each also have a chance to drain life." -- 13:00, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
