ghost miner You're fighting a ghost miner

Apparently this mine is haunted, because as you near the shaft, you're attacked by what appears to be a ghost miner.

He's unaccompanied by a ghost parent or a ghost guardian, and he's swinging his ghost mattock around in a decidedly dangerous fashion.

Hit Message(s):

The miner coughs up a disgusting cloud of ghost dust and blows it in your direction. Eek! Eek! (spooky damage)

The miner swings his ghost mattock at you. You sustain a miner injury. Ha ha. Ow! Ooh! (spooky damage)

The miner pulls a ghost canary out of his pocket and throws it at you. You get pecked in the <face>. Oof! Eek! (spooky damage)

Critical Hit Message:

The miner pulls his mattock back to swing at you, but instead hits the ceiling of the shaft and causes a cave in. Rocks hit you in your <face> and your <face>. Argh! Ow! Ooh! (spooky damage)

Miss Message(s):

The miner charges at you, but, being incorporeal, passes through you without harm.

The miner swings his ghost mattock at you, but you jump behind a mine cart.

The miner pulls a ghost canary out of his pocket and throws it at you, but poisonous ghost gas knocks it out before it can get to you.

Fumble Message:

The miner pulls his mattock back to swing at you, but instead hits the ceiling of the shaft and causes a cave in. Perhaps remembering the cave in that turned him into a ghost, he cowers in fear.

Notes

  • The ghost miner has Physical Resistance. Physical and spooky attacks will inflict only 1 damage, even with a critical hit. The only expeditious way to defeat this monster is to use non-spooky elemental damage attacks or spells.
    • Any non-elemental familiar attacks and combat items count as physical damage.
  • If you are attacking with non-spooky physical damage, you will not be able to defeat this monster unless you are attacking with dual-wielding or Ambidextrous Funkslinging, or have brought along an attack familiar. The reason is that this monster has 31 HP, so, if you only do 1 damage per round, you will almost, but not quite, beat the monster before the 30 round limit is over.

References

  • The description of this monster (He's unaccompanied by a ghost parent or a ghost guardian) is a play on the terms "miner", one who mines, and "minor", an underaged person that rarely ventures into the world without a family member nearby.
  • The third missed attack text refers to the old coal miners' practice of taking a caged canary down into the mine with them as an early warning system against build-ups of methane or carbon monoxide gas. If the bird stopped singing, dangerous levels of gas were mounting and the miners knew to evacuate.
  • The third attack message references black lung disease, a disease of the lungs caused by breathing coal dust.
