I tried, I really did. I see what needs to be done, but I guess I never learned how to keep Slayers away in tight quarters. (I encountered the same problem in a room in "Lost in a City" where I had to deal with two Slayers and a bunch of other monsters. I gave up on that one, over a year ago, as even after requesting help and watching a demo I couldn't make it work myself.)

Is there any describable strategy for getting through this room, other than "be better"? Is there a simple trick that I've missed? Whichever corridor I start with, I soon find myself facing roaches (often from two directions) with the Slayer nearby, and moving my sword or myself makes me vulnerable to the hook.

I had hoped that those Stalwarts I just rescued would turn up here to help me. Guess not.

Maybe this topic should be 3 North 3 East?

The Slayer has some predictable weaknesses. If he is following his wisp trail toward you and you enter one of the squares near him, this will slow him down (he'll turn his hook and maybe start a new wisp trail).

If you're trapped in a corridor that's 3 spaces wide, you can face him with your sword along one wall, and there will be room to pass against the opposite wall.

OMG, yes it should. So very sorry, and I hope someone can change it appropriately. (This happened during a glitch mentioned in another thread, when hint requests did not generate a subject line automatically and I had to type it myself. Still, that's no excuse for such a simple-minded error.)

As for the situation you describe:

Still, this gives me something to work with, and I'll keep trying. Thank you!

Later: Got it! Your help got me through it. And again, apologies for the mistitling.

Is it possible to kill the slayer first?

Probably, but you might have an easier time trapping him on a force arrow.
