Ugh...I was drinking from a pool and it made me invisible. Short of drinking some more and hoping it makes me NOT invisible....is there any other means to get rid of it? I don't have any potions of visibility either and I really don't want to be invisible. I have the spell to do that if I want to be. Is there any other methods for getting rid of the invisibility intrinsic?
How long ago did that happen? Sometimes pool invisibility wears out after awhile. If it's of the permanent sort, pool drinking's the only way to get permanently rid of it as far as I can tell.
Not too long ago. I tried to drink a little more from the pool and I got sleep resistance...but then the pool dried up. I guess I need to find me another pool. This character isn't ready to try the place with all the pools and treasure vaults and everything. I might go and sneak through the SMC real quick since the stairs down are close the stairs out. But I would really like to get rid of the invisibility.
What's wrong with it? Are you going for an ultra ending of some type? Because the Invisibility intrinsic is awesome!
I've only ever had it once... my PC drank from a pool and got it before he'd even seen his first monster. I'm far from being a great ADOM player, but I proceeded to pound the game senseless with this guy and didn't run into any significant challenges until the ACW. Even then, invisibility was a huge advantage. He died around the mana temple, but that was because of my own careless play. He could easily have been my first win otherwise.
IMO, the only place it hurts you is the arena, and even then the invisibility makes up for the Gladius and Big Punch.
I am averaging one win for every 10 years of play.

You don't HAVE to be tough enough to clear Darkforge,
in order to enjoy the benefits of Darkforge : )
There is a \ of teleportation in the VDDL, and a (pretty
much) guaranteed source of TP control in the ID (blink
dog corpse). Get some potions of booze from giving
~50 gp to Lawenilothehl beggars, to charge your wand
with. You will need 5 charges for raiding the weapon's and
armor rooms, more if you want to add the pool room.
I advise to be sure you can handle the occasional water
elemental, before beginning your drinking session. Cursing
and dooming can also occur, so maybe it would be wise
to wait a while before going there. It is an option for
removing perma-invisibility, but it can be a dangerous one.
Heh...I am already doomed from one pool I found a potion of visibility, but I haven't drank it yet. I didn't want to be invisible because of the xp hit I take. But I slowed myself when I found a room of 20 trolls or something and whooped up on them. Nice exp gains that way...even with being invisible. lol.
I still haven't found any means of teleport yet...and no means of swimming. Which is preventing me from getting to Keethrax. No frost spell either. bleh. ahaha. But that doomed intrinsic hasn't been helping any at all
Well...I'm still invisible. A few notes that I have found whilst playing invisible
You can't lead the ratling out of the bandit town. He won't follow you when you are invisible.
If you find a floor with a tension room and you use knock on all the doors, you still get "you sense a certain tension" messages even though that room has been cleared
It's neat to walk in to a vault and be able to walk around to see how the creatures are all standing there in what order just waiting for you to make some movement on them
Blink dogs...they don't summon help when you fight them while you are invisible. Making the teleport control intrinsic a little harder to find
On a side note, I finally found a frost bolt spell so I can finally go after Keethrax, but I'm lvl 16 now and I need to do the pyramid first. I think my main issue has been weight. I had to stop carrying the si around cause I couldn't keep up with the weight. And now I am not getting as much money as I would like. Off to bed...I'll tackle the pyramid tomorrow!
Hm, what do you mean with 'xp loss'? I thought xp amount depends only on speed difference between you and monsters. Is there any information about this in GB?
I'm pretty sure Mummy Wrappings make you visable, it's been a while since I dealt with the problem, though.
I'm pretty sure that while you are invisible, you don't get the full xp. I thought you lost 1/2 the xp. Maybe one of the more knowledgeable players can confirm it or not.
