Aegean God - can he be killed?
« on: February 26, 2012, 05:56:51 PM »
Hey all,

I was wondering if any of you had ever managed to kill the Aegean God in the Wand of Destruction questline.  Typically I just grab the Wand and leave, but is there a way to kill him, and if so, how?

Can you Earthbind him to stop him from flying around?  Does he only take damage from weapons that are fire/piercing/poison?

I don't think he can be killed, (he is a god) I've tried attacking him for about 5 mins continuously, with no results.

I remember fighting him but I don't seem to remember if he could die either and I don't remember if I fleed or not.

Someone should go and kill him

I think we figured out that you definitely can't kill him, IIRC Cave_Johnson poked around the .exe and he's unkillable.

What if you make a map with a crusher, busting this myth? (pun intended)

He's immune to all damage. I've used a wand of earthbind in the map he is originally encountered in to replicate 'crush damage'. Nothing.

I don't think I hardconfirmed it back then, but these days, the source is readily available and I looked.

He has 30000 hp.

And he has 30000 regen per tick (didn't bother to check if/how that's scaled, and his tics are 7 I think but I didn't check against what time unit - with values this high, it shouldn't matter.)

So you need to do some really fast insane levels of damage or he will heal it all back long before you can finish him. I strongly doubt any normally-available means can do that much damage, quite possibly not even typical crushers. A crusher set to do extreme damage, perhaps, but such a crusher would instantly kill any player at any level unless they have true invul, since player hp and regen are nowhere near this level.

He is flat-out immune to several types of damage but not all. Which is purely academic unless you've found a way to do thousands of damage per frame with at least one of them... so ultimately, if you do catastrophic damage with one of the right types of damage, he should die. The question is, can any usable means of doing damage without editing the game meet that kind of sheer DPS? Doubt it, but I'd be happy to consider any speculations.

Side-note: Those pesky blue elves in Q6 ARE normal-immune and fire-immune, but also have other things that they're not immune to, and they don't have insane regen.

Suppose you edited the game to make some super-wand that deals sufficient damage, I wonder if he has a death animation and corpse. Or if the game just crashes, hehe.
You say "potion of food". I say "yoghurt".

I messed around with the code a bit and killed him just to test the theory. It doesn't crash but he also doesn't have any death animation. He just stops animating altogether.

The Aegean God has no death animation.  He just stops wherever he is and floats.  We had an early tester figure out that if he filled him with poison, it would kill him.  It should not crash the game if you could figure out how to do 30000 damage to him in one frame.

Interesting... so there's a way to stack poison dots to the point it outstrips his regen? Spamming the poison wand and mana scrolls perhaps?

Oh, the god was killed in this video using the previous pause bug:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2IuS3-tdaM&index=30&list=PL9EIvMIw13Zcf3jvJJBnT2mNJ9CjpD37z
