I killed Vlad with my bare (well, gloved) hands because I accidentaly unwielded my weapon and I didn't even notice. Yeah. 23:19, 8 July 2011 (UTC)

Can you destroy Vlad by turning him? --FJH 02:47, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
I misread that as "tuning". But yes, it should be possible, though you will need many attempts due to his high MR. --Tjr 01:19, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I just beat Vlad to death with a stethoscope, so I am sure that turning could also work. 14:56, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

A levelporting/teleporting Vlad?

Well that was annoying. For some reason the level 18 Vlad I encountered could a) level port via reading a scroll of teleportation (I didn't confuse him), and then b) teleport to the upstair when I finally found him. I have never seen that before. I've always been able to bash him to death with a piece of glass without him teleporting away. Odd. --Davek (talk) 05:27, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

Because he cant teleport to the upstairs when he is at the last level of the tower?--Quantum Immortal (talk) 14:49, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
First he level-ported to something like Dlvl 7. Then, after I found him, he was able to teleport at will back to the upstair of the level like a master lich. I've never had so much trouble with Vladdie before. --Davek (talk) 05:13, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Wait a minute. If he just level teleports, he can't leave the tower, normally. To level teleport, you just need a cursed scroll of teleportation. He had to be confused by something to leave the tower... and search for him in the entire game O_O . The upstairs part is normal, there is no upstairs at his normal location, so normally, this is never an issue. I didn't even know he could teleport, the article doesn't mention it either. You might want to start a thread in the forum instead for more opinions.--Quantum Immortal (talk) 21:11, 3 October 2015 (UTC)


Tempted to make a separate article on Vlad's appearance in dNetHack, but not sure if it'd be considered sensible to do... --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 08:23, 5 July 2021 (UTC)
