Acid vortices are monsters in ADOM. Like all vortices, the only attack they possess is to close to melee distance and explode; in their case, this causes an acid ball. They are generally the most feared vortex since acid is both the most powerful element and the most destructive—acid can potentially destroy any non-artifact item not made of eternium, crystal, or stone. They are best taken down with missiles or magical bolts other than Acid Bolt (though they can shrug off bolts).

Like all vortices, the message "You hear a distant wind" will be displayed on any level where an Acid vortex is present.

Monster memory[]

A strange cloud of green moisture is moving towards you. A horrible stench is arising from that cloud. Whenever a drop hits the ground, the ground is scarred by the fluid and a hissing sound can be heard.
