Anyone Ever Figure Out Monster HPs?...

Post by IJBall » February 1st, 2010, 10:59 pm

So, has anyone ever figured out the HPs that the various Book I monsters have?

I think I figured out the HPs of the regular (red) salamanders a long time ago. But, more recently, I've figured out the following HPs, so far:

Fanged Salamander (red) - 9 HPs
Noximander (yellow) - 35 HPs
Fungal Slime - 25 HPs
Bloodsipper - 17 HPs(?)
Thug - 40 HPs

I've never tried to figure out HPs for Goblins, and I've never sat down and worked out Taurax HPs.

So, anyone work out the HPs of some of the other Book I monsters?...

I believe over_cloud9 did some HP stuff in the EB I walkthrough.

Huh. Cool.

I don't think all of the numbers are quite right (for example, I know that Salamanders are HP=9, not HP=10, because you can 'one-hit-kill' them when your melee MaxDamage stat gets up to MaxDamage=9), but they are definitely in the ballpark. That will be a useful resource.

(And, if I get some time later, I'll probably list that info in this thread...)

You can find monsters' HP, along with other attributes, by searching inside the EXE file.

King_ov_Death is correct - the values in the table below are correct, because they're straight from the source (most of Randomizer's values above were pretty close to the "correct" values).

SPOILERS ahoy!

Code: Select all

  HPs   Monster Class        XPs
  ---   -------------        ---
    9   Fanged Salamander      8
   15   Goblin Bombthug       60
   17   Bloodsipper           25
   25   Fungal Slime          35
   35   Noximander            45
   38   Goblin Hacker         55
   40   Thug                  50
   40   Hive Drone            60
   45   Goblin Archer         80

   50   Skeleton              90
   55   Walking Corpse        85
   60   Poltergeist          190
   70   Acid Grub            160
   70   Giant Arachnid       150
   75   Goblin Warlord       250
   80   Dimensional Eye      250
   90   Barrea Mercenary     165
   95   Raptor               110

  100   Hive Queen           500
  140   Taurax               185

  "Friendlies":
    5   Vault Master          15
   15   Shadowmirk Acolyte    75
   45   Gatekeeper           250
   50   Vault Guard          250
  120   Town Guard           125
  120   Azure Guard          150
  120   Darkford Guard       150
  120   Captain Morgan       400
  140   Timberland Giant     300
  300   Spire Guard          400  
I intentionally left out a couple of special "hostiles" from this list on purpose. I also left out the bulk of the NPCs (if you want those values, I'll leave it to you, dear reader, to find the way to figure them out...).

P.S. I included Captain Morgan just to show how much he's fallen on 'hard times' in Book II (where's he down to just 1 HP!!).
