Quickling lord is a type of monster in ADOM. Quickling lords are almost twice as fast as lesser quicklings, allowing them to perform a huge amount of attacks and movements in a single turn, and have slightly more HP. Like all quicklings their attacks penetrate armor, they are very evasive, and they regenerate quickly (making any damage they manage to survive inconsequential, due to their movement speed). They also shoot tiny quarrels, though these are not very powerful.

Many quickling lords can be found in the Quickling Tree, and a large army of them is summoned if the PC attempts to wish for Filk. They sometimes drop hand crossbows when killed.

Monster memory[]

Among these swift creatures, some are even more fleet of foot than most and they rise to positions of power. They are called upon to fight opponents who possess speed or awareness that would best the average quickling, and so fight with more speed and power due to natural ability and practical experience.
