An "instant seal" in the achivement and stat sense is when a dwarf enters a water or lava cave, and you immediately blow that same fellow up, which will stop the flow without the need of walls and additonal dwarfs! It won't make it super easy, but it's a good thing to know is possible

There's really only 2 ways to effectively Instant Seal:

1) Watch the Dwarf as he's opening the cave with a dynamite ready to drop. This can be risky if you get to twitchy, I once accidentally bombed a dwarf after he opened a treasure cave, for example. However, without slowing time, it's the only way you'll react fast enough; especially on harder difficulties and with water.

2) A quick trigger finger on that space bar. With good enough reflexes you can act in time to Instant Seal a Lava/Water Cave, even when you were holding S when it was broken open. You can only do this so often though, so if your Dwarves are opening caves one after the other, you'll only be able to freeze one.

Agree with all of the above. Definitely takes some nerves of steel and a steady trigger finger. Don't want to blow up any Dwarfs!?!?!?! just after opening a treasure cave because you were anticipating lava.

It's never lava when you're ready with the instant seal.

It's aways lava when you're battling something on the other side of the map.
