good timing - I'm ready now to revisit JtRH, for some good, old-fashioned smitery.

Just let me finish with this sharpening stone.

Clarification:

Two weeks ago, JtRH 5.0 was made available to chat members as a limited release, for final testing before we announced the release on the forum. One bug that was noticed was that this, along with two other challenges, was not implemented. (There's a complicated story behind that, which I won't go into now.) This has now been fixed, and these challenges are implemented in the final release.

The final decision for this room was to award the challenge "Escapology" if you enter from the west or north and reach the stairs, regardless of whether you do it with or without killing the Slayer.

Thanks! I hadn't realized that it wasn't officially done yet. The challenge works fine now.

Actually, billbuckner was asking how to complete this room from the west.

...So, how precisely DOES one kill the slayer?

Is there a precise sequence of moves that will lead to this, or has this now been fixed, can he detect and counter it?

That doesn't exactly help me much. I need like a more precise sequence of instructions. like "north, northeast, swing sword" and so on. Methods of killing slayers in rooms with features that simply don't exist in this particular room are not of help.

Or a demo and precise, simple instructions as to how to actually make use of it, I have not yet succeeded in getting *any* demo to play *anywhere* in DROD.

you can also use this hold to practice with slayer killing

I got into that position.

What is the precise sequence of moves after that, that results in a kill? I have been unable to find one.

Just wondering if someone has managed to complete that extra challenge without killing the slayer.

Thanks to Bomber50. I wonder what this *other* trick is that tempestadept mentions... Or if it's actually possible to get into and out of the tunnel without killing the Slayer. So far, using the best advice in this thread, I'm about half a dozen moves short.

Was it proven possible without killing the slayer?

I wasn't even aware of two things:
* The slayer can kill with his body (as well as with the hook),
* The slayer is actually "slayable". Unfotunately I believe that I'll see him again soon... maan - this sort of enemies are seriously like a donkey: wisdom-proof and difficult to smash.

Anyway - happy to take a look at the hold with slayers someone has mentioned up there ^^.

Omg, I actually killed the 39th Slayer. I tried to do it again, but it's now difficult lol.
I wanna make a video on it as long as I figure out how to do it
