Useful Info

Tips & Tricks

  • Players unaccustomed to blink frogs can expect fast movement speed, decently powerful melee damage, no resistances, excellent evasion, and an irritating tendency to blink away from you after attacking. These blinks can be useful, however, giving you a few turns to pelt him from afar or to quaff a potion of heal wounds. Don't just tab at him; play smart and react to his blinks intelligently.
  • His magic resistance isn't too high, so a wand of paralysis may come in handy for making your getaway. Alternatively, just wait for him to blink away from the stairs and make your escape.
  • Damage over time, like poison or Sticky Flame, can be very useful for continuing to damage him while he's blinking around all over the place. You might even manage to kill him after he teleports away from you.

History

  • Before 0.19, Prince Ribbit, like his blink frog brethren, was immune to the effects of distortion weapons and would actually be healed by them 20% of the time.
