Crown of lightning ( [ )
Item Type Helmet
Artifact? No
Weight 65s
Danger Level 20
Material Iron

Crowns of lightning are a rare type of headgear in ADOM. They have typical stats of [+0, +1], although variations from these numbers are common. They provide immunity to shock attacks while worn and grant a +5 bonus to speed. They are immune to lightning-based attacks despite being made from iron (as of version 1.2.0[1]).

Crowns of lightning appear as yellow crowns when unidentified.


Crowns of lightning are somewhat useful in the late game (thanks to their high DL they are unlikely to be found early in the game), especially in the Air Temple and Blue Dragon Caves.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be found in the same ways as any generic loot.
