Ok, don't know if this is really a bug, but has the skeletal devourer in Topaz been changed or something?

I got killed twice now in a week by it. The thing is just last week I could smack it down like it was a little runt that needed a whoopin', and I was 3 levels lower?! I have all the same buffs (and more), and the same armor, belts, etc. Just curious if anyone notices anything.

(note: tonight I saw 3 people killed by it....all of them people I know have been able to whoop it in the past)

Yes Girek, they're evil now, and have death magic.

Evil I tell you!

But not like my sweetheart Dunge Onmaster! emot-heartbeat.gif

I was never able to kill the skeleton. He's immune to all my spells for some reason.  Reply with quote

I got him twice with West out of three times. It doesn't matter, whats inside the chest are giveaway items in anycase. If its too difficult for some, perhaps maybe the loot can be somewhat ... worth the trouble?

Just a suggestion, but its really easy for fighters with death-spell immunity- you just have to watch out for the pesky harming kobolds.

It was brought to my attention that it may have been a DM taking the form of the skeletal devourer. icon_surprised.gif

On a side note, I know that it has to be something different (Dm using it, etc.) because when I say I kicked it's butt twice before I mean I killed it twice in a matter of maybe a minute. It has never been difficult for me until this past week.

Yeah, the skeletal devourer is a funny thing. I've noticed on many occasions the difference in strengths. Sometimes it is insanely easy and rarely gets a hit in, and every once in a awhile he casts 4 spells in a minute and absolutely slaughters everyone in the room. We had a 3-man party slaughtered by it in this manner. I think it was deliberate, and even if it wasn't, keep it that way, i like the variation of enemies like that, makes it more interesting and realistic, since no two people (or things, i guess) are alike.

I feel stupid replying to my own post with some sort of answer, but.........I fought the skeletal devourer on purpose last night after getting to level 18, and trust me, something has changed. I gave him a good run for his money (and would have done moreso had I desired to drink heals like water), but it is WAY harder than it used to be. I mean, I used to kill it at level 14 and now I can barely get it down to Injured. I'm not complaining though. As I believe Ultrafoo mentioned, it just makes it more interesting.....I will have to tread lightly around this fiend icon_cool.gif

well last time i checked he had at least 8d6 sneak attacks and 40-50 base damage, and his damage type was piercing (too bad emerald armor fools) and he had an ab of +50 something on first rolls, may have been +65 if not higher, but mostly he is immune to everything except crits and normal physical damage, he has immunity to levels 9 and below, which makes spell castyers useless, just make a melee to take him down, he has around a 50 ac and about a 700 hp at least i estimate from how much it used to take me to kill him (which was about 2-3 rounds before the wipe) so anyway, just some general info on him...

OH, one note i forgot to mention, im not sure if its level or otherwise, but when they dispel you, it ALWAYS removes EVERY SINGLE BUFF, meaning dont use buffs as they will only be dispeled... just a note icon_biggrin.gif
