Sharad-Waador is a powerful ancient karmic wyrm living next to a staircase on the 4th level of the Unreal Caves in the Caverns of Chaos. He offers the PC a quest to kill his rival, the ancient blue wyrm Srraxxarrakex, who is located at the bottom of the Blue Dragon Caves that are accessed by the stairs immediately adjacent to him.

Symbol color

  1. Ancient karmic wyrms change color each time they take a turn.


Once the player accepts the quest, they may not walk off the staircase without making Sharad-Waador hostile until Srraxxarrakex is killed. In return, Sharad-Waador will give the player a large number of items, including the artifact dagger Needle, which is a necessary component to ultra endings.

As his name suggests, Sharad-Waador is a karmic being, and thus attacking him in melee is not recommended.

Monster memory[]

My gods! How can anything that huge exist? But it does. Standing before you, it now seems very real indeed, its scales flickering between a thousand colors, and torrents of smoke funneling from its nostrils when it exhales. Eyes the size of your fist stare down from the sky, briefly pondering your insignificant life. The scales of this beast are scarred by thousands of fights, yet its existence is the proof for its awesome powers to fight and prevail in almost any situation.
