Blood from Corpses

Are players polymorphed into vampires affected by the blood in corpses coagulating after a few turns, like players who are of the vampire starting race? -AileTheAlien 03:31, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Yes. When polymorphed into a form that is considered a vampire (SLASH'EM adds a flag for it), you are only able to eat fresh corpses. If you have a bite attack that drains life and it hits and drains life, you will also get nutrition from that (6 times the damage done), much like a player vampire. The drain life claw of a vampire mage will not give you additional nutrition, nor any of the star vampire's attacks. Additionally, this is only the case for SLASH'EM - Vanilla vampires are regular inediate monsters and do not get nutrition from attacks and do not have any diet restrictions. -- Qazmlpok 03:44, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Shapeshifting vampires in 3.6

In version 3.6 I have seen fog clouds and vampire bats reconstitute as vampires and vampire lords after being destroyed. I'd edit the page but I don't know where the code is in the source to reference, so someone more experienced with source diving might want to do it? Funcrunch (talk) 19:38, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
