Greater molochs are slow yet extremely powerful monsters in ADOM. They are immune to fire and cold based attacks and can quickly regenerate health. Furthermore, they adjust in power depending on the strength of the player. Weapons such as Phase daggers or missiles with the 'penetrating' prefix are extremely helpful for bypassing their massive PV. Stunning them helps for range players.

Greater molochs are one of three monsters that can be detected from a distance by the *THUMB* sound produced by their footsteps.

Malevolence incarnate, if there really is a body to this armored mass of focused hatred and power. Working like time, slow but irresistible, the greater moloch seeks to beat down any structure or power that reveals an underlying order.
