Fire giant king is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very hardy, possess a very strong melee attack, and can also deal significant damage from afar by firing rocks. Like most creatures of fire they are immune to heat, but highly vulnerable to cold spells — something certainly worth bearing in mind for physically weak spellcasters trying to survive against them.

Fire giant kings are usually found in the Tower of Eternal Flames, though not in the temple itself. They rarely appear in other dungeons and typically can be encountered only on high-DL levels. As of version 1.2.0[1], fire giant kings appear in greater giant vaults.

Monster memory[]

Even among this large, fiery race there are those considered to be kings. These excel at contests of strength and speed and are able to lord their power over others of their race. Some say their strength comes from a burning desire in their hearts for more power, but it might just be that they are meaner than most.

Alternative description

Among fire giants, this one represents the epitome of fire giant leadership. He is extremely aggressive and commands a menacing and formidable presence. Other fire giants follow him with loyalty.
