[SPOILERS] Easiest way to kill Kangaxx (demilich form)

Just burn him with potion of firebreath. That's all. Sometimes you'll need one more potion or 1-2 hits with Daystar or Staff of Rynn (available at early stages of the game).

    My first time playing the game I used that anti magic scroll and just banged on him. Didn't even realize he was supposed to be tough til I read the walk-through guide.

    Yeah, his regeneration rate is very high + immunity to poison, both thanks to his ring.

    Actually, Protection from Undead scroll is even cheesier than Protection from Magic scroll. You can kill all five liches in the city using 1 scroll (or 0 if you use Simulacrum).

    Oh, and thief using Mislead can even backstab him.

    In vanilla game you just need decent save vs his instant death (or death ward) and spell immunity abjuration vs imprisonment. Then he cannot touch you.

    This made me lol, does that really work?
    I know Jan's flasher master bruiser mates can stun him because he is immune to spell levels 1 to 9 and those count as spell level 0.

    2 potions will kill him 100% (saving throw?). With reloading only 1 may be enough.
    I'm registered here only to tell this hilarous thing!
    Didn't knew about it all this years, but maybe it works only in BG2:EE?
    Before I found this method recently, I've almost always used potion from Irenicus' dungeon on Ulvaryl.

    Sure, but for a solo low level thief spell immunity is unavailable. I go for Ring of Gaxx almost immediately after first dungeon. And this involves killing all other liches of Athkatla.

    Kangaxx has 50 HP. Potion of Firebreath does 6d10, save for half. Each potion therefore does, on average, 33 damage on a failed save, or 16.5 on a successful save. Save vs. breath should be less than 10, so below 50% chance of full damage. You still need a little luck to make it work, so it's not guaranteed.

    Then average values just happen very rare. Ten attempts in different runs, all successful.
    Maybe average calculated like "1st - very high damage, 2nd - very low damage"?
    Need to try it with verbose "to hit" info.

    Might have had some luck boni going on there, e.g. from bard song or Chant.

    This thread destroys the imposing presence poor old Kangaxx was like a bulldozer rolling on a bug. Nice!

    Pretty sure these potions are how I got him back on my first playthrough when I knew nothing of immunities and the like.
