Mages and banishment

Post by PowerWyrm » Fri 09.01.2009, 12:29

Banishment is a nice spell... but it can easily kill you if you aren't careful.
1) Avoid casting it without a large amount of hps - don't even try without 600 hps, 800hps recommended (check one of Poundy's recent deaths - banishment ate more than 800 hps)
2) Avoid banishing orcs, trolls, demons and dragons - they come in pits and in packs
3) Avoid banishing hounds - there are often multiple packs on a level
4) Stay in a large room to banish stuff - in case you die, at least your stuff will survive if you can be rescued

Instead of banishment use mass banishment it only kills monsters surrounding you so you can "guess" with ESP / detection how much HP youll loose.

Ill add this to the "when to use which spell thread" :)
