MOM -- a puzzle


You might be surprised to learn that I won this fight without losing anyone.

How? Notice that my Death Knights are all glowing? They all have Wraithform on them, which makes them incorporeal, which means they can't be webbed.

So the spiders just sat there the whole fight. The Knights move forward, take one shot at a Great Wyrm, do damage and take damage, then eat a spider to recharge. What with 7 spiders there, not only did the Knights manage to knock off both Wyrms, they came out of the battle with hardly any damage at all.

There isn't any other advantage to doing this, but this is enough to make it worthwhile. I routinely put Wraithform on my Death Knights now.

1 A nice solution to the problem. And I like the mental image of the spiders as little power-up snacks.

Fire elementals are like that, too. I think of them as "batteries".

Things that life stealers love to eat:

bears, sprites, basilisk, spiders, cockatrices, stone giants
guardian spirits, unicorns, angels
hell hounds, fire elementals, chimera, doom bats, fire giants

Black fantastic creatures have no nourishment (there's no life to steal). Gorgons and storm giants are too dangerous. Phantom warriors and beasts have no meat.

Death knights love to eat air elementals and earth elementals, but they're too dangerous for wraiths. (Cockatrices and basilisks can be dangerous for wraiths, too.)
