Fire vortex is a type of vortex in ADOM. They have no attacks besides exploding in a ball of flame once they reach melee range with the PC. They tend to show up earlier in the game than other vortices, and tend to pose a serious threat to weak and/or unprepared PCs. Like most creatures of fire they are immune to heat, but highly vulnerable to cold spells; a spell or wand of cold is definitely very helpful for taking these out risk free.

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

A strange cloud consisting of thousands of flickering flames is moving towards you. The heat is almost unbearable. The closer the strange cloud gets, the brighter and hotter it seems to burn.
