Ran Lolth yesterday. We were doing pretty well until we put the blue orb in, enter the last room and the wench cheated. As we entered the caster dropped a mass GS on the entire party. Lolth ran right up to us and started hacking away at everyone and wiped the party. How she bypassed GS I have no clue. Anyway, I just wanted to warn everyone to watch out for the spider wench as she is a haxor.
(This post was made in jest, however, the GS thing did actually happen but isn't a huge deal)
GS did not work in Drow areas until a fix was made a long time ago sounds like you unfortunately for your party may have had a temporary fix fail, I'm going to guess you didn't have any high AC tanks (100+) to take the punishment and rez people.
Was running my shifter and it tanks fairly well in there. (roughly 95ac depending on shape) but I got unshifted due to reasons. (I think it was a server wide-character save or something as I know that unshifts you) and then was slapped into oblivion by that cheating spider wench. Not surprised that she can only get stupid smelly drow to follow her with her cheating ways.
iirc I believe you can be unshifted by equipment disarming but only if you are in a form which has a physical weapon, I think Azer chieftain is one, I seem to remember this being discussed a long time ago.
Yup. If you in an armed form and get slagged or disarmed etc then you unshift. Also the pixies / ethereal cutpurses / other thieving creatures will unshift you due to item loss/gain. But you are immune to armor loss or being made nekkid as armor is merged into form and you are for all intents and purposes already nekkid.
I remember in ancient times somebodies brand new demigod exploding (and taking out the rest of the party in the room with massive magical aoe damage) when Lolth stripped their Asmo shield as for a microscopic instant the shield existed twice in their inventory, the fix was to make that item unslaggable. My claim to fame I was present on that run and was one of the corpses lying in the dirt after it happened

There was a fix? GS is consistently unreliable in all the underdark zones, it's due to the buggy interaction of gs and darkness (aka mobs ignore it). As well, gs is demonstrably buggy when interacting with ranged attacks past a certain distance (aka mobs ignore it).
