    Wail of the Banshee works well for me. If you're having difficulty, you can try Enervate first and then Finger of Death.

    evoker archmage + missiles + arcane blast and bolt ... but there should not be any Orthons after the first few anyway if you're killing the portal trash promptly.

    Probably your DC and Spell Penetration too low.

    If you're playing a first attempt arcane and have a combination of low save dcs and low spell pen, focus on preventing the orthons from being spawned in the first place. The portal spawns come in structured waves. If you keep killing the trogs as they spawn, orthons/bezekira wont spawn to reinforce.

    Finger/Wail are the best ways to kill them if you have a healthy save dc and good spell pen.

    If your saves are great but your spell pen is letting you down, mass hold monster and hit them with dreamspitter/staff of shadow. This isnt ideal because of the time it takes. (also consider picking up the yellow wizard's staff if you dont have any spell pen gear, its got greater spell pen 9)

    If your spell pen is great but your saves are low, you can put some neg levels on them with enervate/energy drain to lower their saves considerably.

    There are 4 items laying by bodies near the first portal in pt 1 of Shroud. One of those items is that staff, but it, and the others, drop as soon as you leave the Shroud. So you can only use them in the Shroud itself.

    Hit it with a stick, and if it moves hit it again.

    when the shroud first came out, we'd tell the new fighter types that the first one to the weapons got to keep them. they normally got really annoyed when they dropped on the way to part 2.

    of course, part 2 had a penalty box back then making it much more fun than it is now
