    I have never tried using darkfire bow or taralash bow with the Quiver of Plenty +2 or firetooth crossbow against last boss. Can she be injured by this weapons?
    Thanks in advance!

    IIRC she is immune up to +3 enchantment like Demiliches, as she is one big bad nasty avatar of a (nearly) God(dess). +4 weapons should hurt her (go for Gessen!) but she also likes casting protection spells a lot, which further complicates things.

    Then again I never tried to attack her with lesser weapons so I can not be sure.

    But I think she is strong enough to be immune to puny +2 projectiles thrown at her way. :p

    Can some one confirm this? Also, is there a difference of the final boss's immunities between vanilla game and ascension final battle?

    How do you calculate the total enhancement of using a sling and bullets or a bow and arrows? Sling +3 and bullets +2 = +3 weapon?

    So Gessen is your only ranged weapon choice choice against big bad enemies like Mel and Kanagxx as it fires as +4? Ofcourse spell casters can hurl MMMs or Energy Blades instead. Suprisingly, Energy Blades are worse than MMMs, as their electrical discharge fails to penetrate MR, which those hard enemies have plenty of!
