*If his shield is one of reflection, it makes combat significantly more dangerous and restricts your spell set (nothing ruins your day more than a reflected [[Lehudib's Crystal Spear]]). Casters should test his shield for reflection with a weak spell before attempting anything that could potentially kill you. Bear in mind that [[Bolt spells]] and area of effect attack spells are unreflectable, such as [[Freezing Cloud]], [[Poisonous Cloud]], [[Fireball]], [[Lee's Rapid Deconstruction]], [[Fulminant Prism]], etc.

*If his shield has reflection, it makes ranged combat significantly more dangerous and restricts your spell set (nothing ruins your day more than a reflected [[Lehudib's Crystal Spear]]). Bear in mind that [[bolt spells]] are unblockable, as are area-of-effect spells like [[Freezing Cloud]], [[Fireball]], [[Fulminant Prism]], etc.
*His HD means he's still susceptible to [[Mephitic Cloud]], and when he's confused his blocking ability and reflection powers will be set to zero.

*One of the simplest ways of getting past Donald's shield is to [[confuse]] him, which drops his SH score to 0. He has as much magic resistance as a [[death yak]], making [[Hexes]] difficult to apply without using a [[scroll of vulnerability]], but his middling [[hit dice]] and lack of poison resistance mean he's still susceptible to [[Mephitic Cloud]] or [[Confusing Touch]].
*Trapping him with a [[throwing net]] also negates his blocking ability, though he might be able to reflect it back at you.

Useful Info

Donald the Adventurer is a unique adventurer whose dialogue varies based on your current religion and the branch you find him in.

He also has Might and Haste; once his buff spells are active, he's near-impossible to outrun and capable of dealing huge amounts of damage very quickly.
