View Full Version : Dying List

05-08-2019, 04:05 AM
I've been spending the past few days collecting as many different deaths as I could possibly get (big thanks to ErDrick, Cyder, Niqesse, Nightz, Rowina, Eazter, and everyone else who helped me) and I have managed to achieve 30 dying (with 3 bonus levels) from this list so I believe it is fairly complete.

I have tried to include the source of each death but my memory is fuzzy on a few such as Murdered by a humanoid foe and Mind jellified by psychic ghost, others may be wrong too but for the most part they should be correct. I also did not include every single possible way to get a death so if you received the death a different way, it does not necessarily mean the listed way is wrong.

I left in the dying numbers as it could suggest how common/rare a certain death is and the ones without numbers at the bottom are the deaths I do not personally have but know about. Also worth noting is that some abilities/mobs can give multiple deaths even on the same attack. For example all orcs can either give their specific death from their attack, e.g. Troopers can give incinerated on their rage attack OR killed by orc. However this is also true for certain abilities such as ice magic chill, druid heart thorn etc.

Also as a side note I have not mixed up the deaths for pumpkin turret and pumpkin bomb, they are actually the wrong way around in game, however this may get fixed in the future.

Did you use the list from the Wiki (http://wiki.projectgorgon.com/wiki/Deaths), and how complete are they compared to each other?

05-08-2019, 04:51 AM
I have every death from the wiki in my list plus more, but Spontaneously exploded is the one wiki death that I can't seem to figure out at all. I also noticed when compiling my list that the wiki was wrong for a few such as listing murdered by seafood as a fish gut death and was also missing how to get quite a few of the deaths.

05-08-2019, 10:00 AM
Thanks for doing this, these kind of lists are always helpful.

An upto date notoriety and gourmand list would be helpful too.

05-09-2019, 11:28 AM
but Spontaneously exploded is the one wiki death...

Spontaneous Fireball?

05-10-2019, 03:28 AM
Spontaneous Fireball?

Unfortunately that just gives the generic fire damage death, Incinerated.

Just a quick update, 30 dying is possible and my updated list in the op should be able to get you there. I probably won't bother updating this list anymore now since 30 was all I was trying to get.

06-04-2019, 02:46 PM
Impressive :)

Do you get a new tombstone model?

06-05-2019, 01:40 AM
Do you get a new tombstone model?

Unfortunately not :(
I did put in a suggestion to add some new tombstones when I saw that I was still stuck with the same old one from lvl 20.

06-05-2019, 10:35 AM
... I was still stuck with the same old one from lvl 20.

Hey, it took me years to get that level 20 tombstone and it's beautiful! ;) (I think it's 21, actually?? Either way: )

Congrats on level 30!!

This is a lot of great into that'll eventually make its way into the wiki. Some of the 'not sures' need more investigation from people. The Haridius The Exemplary rage attack gives 'Blasted with dark energy' and the normal attack is boring electricity. As I'm someone now after Dying exp, Heart became undead is one of the tricky ones because its kind of an unknown (might be a gargoyle attack ?).

Because Celerity found some deaths more recently, I imagine there are a few skill specific deaths from mods that are still hidden. Soo... keep dying citizens!
Khyrulek's True Form -->Heart became undead

02-26-2020, 05:07 AM
I remember mentions a long time ago that there were deaths from:

drinking black dye

A little on the expensive side to test without confirmation however.

Also I am wondering.....
I spent 12 minutes recently casting ring of fire with mods to deal damage to yourself in combat (fire dmg). It failed to trigger and I had 2 mods on my gear for it.

01-19-2021, 07:36 PM
No idea where it comes from but I have "Melted by Acid 1" in my death list which is not in your - thanks for this list super helpful :)

01-19-2021, 08:40 PM
This list is a bit outdated, it still has most of them but missing the fairy magic deaths for example.

I made the thread originally mostly to get feedback because if I just put it straight on the wiki, I wouldn't know what I missed or got wrong. Niph was kind enough to add all of them to the wiki though and that's the actual updated list now, so I recommend checking that out:


That being said, I've never heard of the melted by acid death and it doesn't look like it's on the wiki either, so I'd love to know where it comes from.

01-20-2021, 06:59 PM
Found it and put it on the wiki, it's from the delayed damage on a scray's rage attack.
