Great blue wyrm is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very fast and extremely powerful late game opponents that breathe lightning, and have a corresponding immunity to shock 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. Great blue wyrms can be found on the bottom level of the Blue Dragon Caves, and one will be found in a vault of blue dragons should the PC happen to find one.

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

Monster memory[]

The air is filled with the smell of ozone, and the distant buzzing sound of electricity grows louder. Suddenly, there is a blinding flash and the roar of thunder! Stunned, you gaze in awe at the fearsome power of the great blue wyrm. The whole world seems filled with lightning as this titanic serpent charges toward you. Its reptilian eyes hold only madness. The ominous hum of power begins to build in intensity once more as the great wyrm opens its huge, fanged jaws...
