    Since we are on the topic of Achmel, has anyone else noticed the frequency certain chars get poisoned more compared to others?
    For example, sorcs seem to always be poisoned, whereas with my necro, he rarely gets poisoned during Achmel's wave.

    Also, what is the range of Achmel's poison? I noticed that when I teleport with my sorc to the very edge of the screen, she doesn't get poisoned. But if she walks closer to Achmel, she'll get poisoned. This is in contrast to my necro that often doesn't get poisoned even when he is a few yards away from Achmel.

    Achmel, and other higher unravellers, poison with their blood stars, not just venom breath. So, if you draw closer to one you tend to be targetted by their missiles and you'll be green in no time. There is also a delayed poisoning that may or may not be related to the infamous 1.10 desynch: you simply don't see the attack. Ever kill Pindleskin and all of his buddies, yet ten or so seconds afterward you hear/feel some sort of charge or lightning spark hit you? Pretty much the same type of thing.

    Could be desynch, but usually isn't. There isn't any poison dmg on their unholy bolts, it's really a poison aura from Achmel. If you stay out of range of the unholy bolts (10 yards) you'll only rarely be poisoned.
