But if you ate everything in the dungeon, wouldn't that include the hand of vecna (and therefore have you die) -1337doom

No, it only does up to 199 damage, so you could survive (same holds true for the Eye of the Beholder). Even if you couldn't survive that way, you could just wear an amulet of life saving. That won't work to eat the Rider corpses though; the amulet will save you, but the corpse won't be eaten at all. -Ion frigate 08:23, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
Due to a bug (in vanilla 3.4.3, at least), I believe you can put on a "oLS, then attempt to eat the same Rider corpse twice in a row; IIRC, it succeeds the second time without killing you. I strongly recommend wiztesting this before trying it for real, because if I've misremembered it'll be Yet Another (very) Stupid Death. Ais523 10:35, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
If that's possible, it sounds like an effect of the "pick off the manky bits/resume your meal" bug. --FJH 10:59, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
No, that does not work: it will revive immediately after you are lifesaved. 220.255.2.53 13:01, 10 October 2011 (UTC)
