Quickling is a type of monster in ADOM. They are fairy monsters that tend to show up in the mid game, and are found in huge numbers in the Quickling Tree.

Quicklings are, as the name suggests, extremely fast and very evasive. Whilst weak, their attacks seem to always penetrate armor, and their speed allows them to get several hits in and retreat to a safe distance. They are mainly just a nuisance, though can be quite a worrying one if the PC is running low on health and trying to retreat to a safe distance. They are usually very easy to kill despite their large DV.

Monster memory[]

A blur of color and a hint of movement are the only clues most people have of the existence of the quickling. Great speed and small size make it difficult to find and focus on these swift beings.
