Great white wyrm is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very fast and extremely powerful late game opponents that breathe cold, and have a corresponding immunity to cold attacks. They are vulnerable to fire (prior to 1.2.0 they were not [1]). 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 white wyrms expand on the usual magical pool of wyrms with the ability to drain stats in melee range.

A great white wyrm can be usually found if the PC encounters a vault of white dragons.

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

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 36, PV: 28, Hits: 255, Attacks: 3, Damage: 17-73. Speed: 115.

Corpse effects[]

Grants intrinsic cold resistance, and always increases Toughness and Charisma 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[]

The once-white scales have faded and dulled, the wings are tattered and broken. Yet still, this ancient beast holds itself high with a sense of grandeur, and a deep wisdom lurks beneath the slightly-glazed eyes. A thick mist surrounds its whole body, swirling about as the dragon moves and the ground shakes.
