Wight is a type of monster in ADOM. It is an undead monster that has a chance to decrease the PC's Toughness upon damaging attacks. The PC should thus make sure to take them out quickly, and/or from a distance. Wights are commonly found in both graveyards, and some are usually found in lesser vaults of lesser undead.

Corpse effects[]

Chance to increase Toughness by 1, or potential Toughness by 1 if Toughness is at potential. The increase is less likely the higher Toughness is, with less than a 10% chance of working once Toughness is 31 or higher. Cannot increase Toughness higher than 55. Eating a wight is a chaotic act.

Monster memory[]

Despite its name, it's as black as pitch. It could pass for human, from a distance, but close up, the blood-caked talons and the... far too many... razor-sharp teeth give it away. It certainly moves as if it were alive and healthy, but it reeks of decayed and rotten flesh.
