Free fights

From TheKolWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are three basic ways to end a combat without it costing a turn. These are

  • free runaways (omitted from this list on purpose, see Run Away for more information),
  • fights against certain monsters (hereafter free fights), and
  • certain methods to insta-kill monsters (hereafter free kills; insta-kill types that cost turns are omitted on purpose).

Free fights and free kills are limited in various ways. One of the most important ways to bypass free fight limits is copying and/or turning a free fight monster into a wanderer. Having access to a fax machine (or a Rain Man) or a genie bottle (or pocket wishes) also obviates the need for a lot of free fights' original sources.
