Greater earth elemental is a type of monster in ADOM. They are very strong and tough elementals that can pass through stone, fire huge rocks, and smash doors. Like other greater elementals they tend to be rare, and only appear late in the game.

Like other creatures of stone, greater earth elementals can be damaged quite effectively by either zapping a wand of digging or casting the Mystic Shovel spell at them. Pick axes and the unpick axe will always score critical hits against them.

Monster memory[]

A living mountain of stone rises up and takes mobile form! It has no noticeable eyes, or head at all, but it seems to be aware of its surroundings without senses or mind. The ground trembles, and great clouds of dust rise into the air as it obliterates anything foolish enough to stand in its path.
