I'm in a public (normal) game, smacking down the Ancients. After they
fall, the gaggle decides to run the Worldstone Keep 2 WP. On the way, a
dumb necro decides to screw us all over by killing Baal (we were in
level 2 - he must have snuck off). Anyhow, NO ONE notices what he's
doing until we get the message "so and so was killed by Baal". HA! Now,
this is HC, so normally a death is sad, but this dude was trying to
screw us over! LOL. So very appropriate.

Ha! So karma does in fact *work* from time to time! Hopefully you and
the rest of your party survived...

or he could have been standing still for a period of time and poison or
other trap comes out, that could have killed him.

My point was that this game was an experience run, not a "for quest"
run. He was trying to force us all into Nightmare before we were ready,
while stealing our "enhanced drops" (yeah, right) in the process.

Oh, now I see. If that's what happened to him, then he really got
screwed by Baal. :(

What they are saying is, that you can get killed by Baal at any level in
World Stone Keep (WSK), so he could just as easy have been standing right
next to you at WSK lvl 2.

If you stand still for too long in any of the WSK levels, Baal will throv a
"spell" on the place you are standing, even though he is on a completely
different level. AFIK Baal is the only monster that can kille you in other
areas than where he is.

if the necro´s connection was lagging, so he was not able to move, he could
easily have been killed by baal, for standing still at WSK lvl2, and NOT
trying to screw you over. The fact that he was killed by baal does not in
any way prove he was anywhere near baal. you can get killed by baal at WSK
level 1 (one level above where you were).

Remember, Never leave D2LoD with the game running, if you are in WSK, always
TP to town first.... esp. if you play HC
