Tips & Tricks

  • Gloorx may have less HP than some other Pan lords, but to many characters, is the most dangerous. They are twice as fast as the standard character, hits hard in melee, and and has an extraordinarily nasty spell set. Haste, poison resistance, and max negative energy resistance are strongly recommended. Be very careful, and have a means of escape ready.
    • Lich Form is helpful, if you can cast it, though lich characters should beware of Dispel Undead. A mass of summons can help block Dispel Undead.
    • A potion of lignification + scroll of fog combination can work great, if you're careful. Tree Form confers immunity to torment, rPois, some natural AC, and it is immune to Dispel Undead. A scroll of fog creates fog clouds, preventing miasma from being placed (clouds cannot replace existing clouds). All you'll have to worry about is the high damage in melee - and the squad of executioners.
  • Gloorx resists electricity, but has no resistance to fire and only partial cold resistance, so most elemental spells work well. Even Air Magic works - Maxwell's Capacitive Coupling ignores resistances and Chain Lightning ignores half resistance.
  • Stabbers who manage to sneak up can usually kill in a single hit, but if that fails, its EV is low enough that throwing nets work very well.
