Tone down the blue mages

Please, they are a pain in the neck. Just got my promising hobbit warrior killed by Alatar. The problem is that they teleport towards you when you enter the level and teleport other doesn't work with them, they keep teleporting towards the player. I usually have to cast teleport level or *destruction* to avoid them. They are really hard. Radagast is not so bad.

Thanks

Seconded.

Pallando has killed several of mine.  You just can't get away from them.

Re: Tone down the blue mages

I am thinking the problem is the teleport-to spell rather than the mages, and maybe powerful uniques shouldn't have it.

Re: Tone down the blue mages

Other uniques have that spell, like Azathoth and Harowen the Black Hand, but usually they are asleep and teleport other is enough to get rid of them. But the Istari are really annoying. They are always awake and teleport towards the player from any place in the dungeon. Perhaps it's a matter of some range parameter of the spell or something like that.

Re: Tone down the blue mages

For Pallando, ALatar, and Radagast, I have reduced their alertness range from 100 to 40 (60 for Radagast) and gave them a sleep factor of 10 (Same as many of the other 'A' uniques, such as Arien.
