Does this increase item drops like a fairy? --MageRed (talk) 04:51, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I think it does, if for no other reason than because the after-battle text is treated as a "fairy dance" for purposes of messages in the Clumsiness Grove. Shashakir0 (talk) 12:06, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

Drops

So far the cubeling dropped this for me:

  • Soda water (x10)
  • 11-foot pole
  • ring of Detect Boring Doors
  • Pick-O-Matic lockpicks
  • Knob Goblin firecracker (x3)
  • Spider web (x2)
  • Razor-sharp can lid (x8)
  • Anti-anti-antidote
  • Doc Galaktik's Ailment Ointment (x4)

I have the impression it spits out an item after every 3rd combat. More specifically, it looks like the drop alternates between a restorative (soda, ointment, antidote) and a gourd item, after getting the more 'special' drops. --Nappa (talk) 13:09, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

For me, in order (and I'll update as I go along), I've gotten:

  • spider web
  • eleven-foot pole
  • ring of detect boring doors
  • Pick-O-Matic lockpicks
  • spider web
  • razor-sharp can lid
  • razor-sharp can lid
  • spider web

It is every three combats though.

References

Castle of the Winds is a "roguelike" - i.e. based on Nethack. Nethack had gelatinous cubes in it, because it used Dungeons and Dragons monster names. So really, this glob monster is a gelatinous cube. I'd say the Castle of Winds is an invalid reference here. See also the guidelines here, wherein the original reference is preferred. Thoughts?
