Killing one of the Cowled Wizards

Hey,
so I'm having this issue with the Cow led Wizards. I've defeated all the enforcers, but I want to get the satisfaction of killing Zallanora. She always just escapes instead, quite annoying. I've tried the finger of death, but for some reason it just automatically goes back to my main character, no idea why.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

    Zallanora can be annoying, so Greater Whirl Wind her with a Wizardslayer ;)

    Seriously if you don't mind using an oldie but a goodie try using all two Protection from Magic scrolls in the game. Cast it ON her and one on yourself, her spells will automatically fail and you will be protected from the other Wizards.

    She has spell turning active, (the silver plate animation under her feet) so your finger of death is reflected back. Use area effect spells such as chaos, cloudkill, death fog, chain lightning, prismatic spray, horrid wilting, etc. Spell turning does not protect against area effect. Lower level area effect spells can be blocked by globe of invulnerabilty if she has one. (Blue sphere that surrounds her) Alternatively you can use spell defense strippers like secret word, pierce magic, Khelben's warding whip, ruby ray of reversal, pierce shield. These will strip her protections so you can land in a finger of death, or better yet, a power word:stun (since powerword does not allow a saving throw if her hitpoints are below a certain point and is pretty much a death sentence)

    Does she drop phat l00t, or does the game expect her to be undefeatable by the player?

    I didn't realize those wizards were led by cows.
    Their uniforms all require T-shirts that say 'Where's the beef?' on the front.

    Also some protective spells (although I forget which ones) prevent damage from AOEs targeted on the caster but not ones that hit nearby so it might be worth considering that when casting.

    Insect plague works great against them too.

    12 random treasure4s or maybe 9, plus 500+ gp, so you could potentially get some great scroll drops from her, I just use traps to take her down, if not, you will have to spell trigger breach her quick and wail on her with hasted weaponry to take her down, if she gets off a timestop its over, she's out

    @sarevok57: So, essentially, there's no loot, given how high profile she is.

    Hit her with some Breaches and hit her with poisoned crossbow bolts or sword hits from Dorn or a PC Blackguard.
