Tips & Tricks

  • If you see Erolcha, buff up your willpower -- characters who first meet Erolcha are unlikely to be prepared to survive in the Abyss.
  • You can block her line of fire with summons or other monsters; she might still be able to hit you with a Fireball, but that's often better than being sent to the Abyss.
  • Erolcha has only modest HP and poor defenses. Hit her hard and she'll fall quickly, but be aware that she can have decent melee damage output if she's carrying a giant spiked club.
  • Despite her description as an "especially cunning ogre-mage", she actually has less HD than actual ogre mages, and deals less damage. She appears considerably earlier than normal ogre mages, though.
    • She actually has the same spell set as wizards (though slightly weaker, due to having less HD).


Also, since monsters had weapon penalties, her melee was less threatening. With a giant club, Erolcha attacked at the same speed as in current versions, but with 20 base damage (not 30).
