The Chaos Orb of Elemental Fire is a guaranteed artifact in ADOM, and one of the five Orbs that are mandatory for completing the game. As such, it can't be sold or lost by any means (e.g. attempting to sacrifice it or leave it in the Infinite Dungeon or wilderness).

Whilst worn in the Tool slot, the Chaos Orb of Elemental Fire raises the PC's Strength by 10. It can also be 'U'sed to replicate the Fireball spell; though doing so adds 300 corruption points to the PC (150 with the elemental gauntlets equipped). Note that whilst it can also be used as a weapon, wielding it as such won't confer a strength bonus.


It is compulsory to obtain this item to complete the game. Its Strength bonus is also very useful for increasing the PC's attack damage and allowing them to carry more items comfortably.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It is carried by the Ancient Chaos Wyrm in the Tower of Eternal Flames.
