Great black wyrm is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very fast and powerful late game opponents that are able to breathe a very strong spray of acid — highly damaging to both the PC and their inventory — and have a corresponding immunity to acid attacks. Like other elemental wyrms they can attack with glowing balls and confusion spells, can quickly heal themselves, always have a name, and drop a large pile of treasure when killed. One will be found in a vault of black dragons should the PC happen to find one.

All great black wyrms are named; the list of possible names can be found here.

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 40, PV: 28, Hits: 340, Attacks: 3, Damage: 16-60. Speed: 120.

Corpse effects[]

Grants intrinsic acid resistance, and always increases Willpower and Toughness by 1 point each.

As a spellcasting monster corpse, it has a chance to increase maximum PP and Mana. The Mana increase is unaffected by potential.

Monster memory[]

Intelligent eyes, filled with the hatred and pain of hundreds upon hundreds of years, gaze out at you from this vast body. Scales rasp along the ground as the wyrm moves ever closer, its yellow teeth gnashing the air, acidic breath leaving nothing but destruction in its wake.
