He somehow survived to level 6 (with 14 hp) and then wound up at my table. I was astounded, as this was the first time I met the character. I told him I'm not sure what he was doing, but it must be working, but nonetheless, I was terrified that he would die from an AoE. He said it was fine. I discovered what he was doing soon enough: for one thing, he was overleveled compared to the other PCs (though they still had way more hp), for another, he never did anything useful (even compared to a level 3 wizard without any cleric levels), so nothing wanted to target him because the other PCs were contributing. He survived encounter after encounter without a scratch due to this, until he was parked next to the two psions in the last encounter and the cleric dropped a flame strike, intending to hit the psions and incidentally hitting the elf, with pretty high rolls on the damage. He saved and died from full hp. All but one player demanded that they all chip in for a raise (the elf's share would have covered it on his own).
That's my kind of con.
