How to kill a wizard?


Advice


My group are looking for ways to kill a group of bad ass wizards that we expect to see in our next session. We are looking for some sure fire ways to piss our GM of an kill his precious little gang of wizards.

Feats, tactics, other spells....

so far I have the The grabble with a knife tactic ready to go

but what else you got?


Whats ur party make-up?


Depending on the levels were talking about, but an antimagic field would make them very sad puppies...


yeah... more information necessary.

Party make up?

How many wizards you trying to kill?

Where are said wizards?

Is it an enclosed space, or open?

Nets, lots of nets.


Stick them with the pointy end?

not that the OP gave much info but I think its a Them not just a Him

What is the party composition ?
-Glitterdust or a tar and feather token to make things uninvisible would help.
-Have anti-darkness measures, such as scrolls or potions of darkvision.

Basically, spells will be a big help to counter their spells.

In the low levels the "step up" feat works wonders. Suddenly no Wizard can cast with impunity by taking a 5-foot step.

Blindness and/or grapple/entangle usually kills a Wizard good but the best thing is anything that allows you a surprise attack that allows some heavy damage chars full attacks before the Wizard can buff up/flee.

Rinse, repeat.

Nets with silence cast upon them are the best.

Since there's no information, I'll give the simplest response.

Hit them until they die.

Tanglefoot bags, nets, and thunderstones are the low-budget answer here.


The Silence spell shuts down a lot of casters too.

Sovereign Court

Easy. Give almost everybody bows and arrows. Have them constantly ready actions to shoot the wizards when they try to cast spells. (It's pretty hard to make a concentration check when you take damage.) Have some way to counter Wind Wall or whatever defensive spells they manage to get up, and have somebody get up close and personal (preferably with Step Up) and take them out one at a time. Make sure you cast Silence on him.

If you have a caster, resolving a Feeblemind basically means that caster is useless.

Reach weapons with the Trip ability. Whips and chains!

Liberty's Edge

Hire a significantly higher level wizard to do it for you.


With a club while he sleeps.


Alternately throw the monk at him and grapple until dead.


- Scrolls of silence
- Entangle
- Glitterdust


+1 ready action to attack with ranged attack when he tries to cast a spell.

Unless he has miss chance - then just try to do do as much damage as possible.

Potions of see inv. Potion of fly.
Higher lvl - scroll of dimensional anchor
