A lumbering ursine figure, grown venerable beyond its natural years by the magic of its forest home. Centuries of basking in the enchanted sunlight has left its russet fur with a strange warm sheen and an unnatural resilience to heat.

If made afraid, it may become angry!

Useful Info

Ancient bears are the strongest bears found in the game. Like all bears, when near death they often go berserk, enhancing their damage output tremendously. While they hit hard normally, they are stronger than stone giants when berserk. Coupled with significant HP and rF+, they can often survive long enough to get some heavy hits in. They can be found in the Enchanted Forest.

Ancient bears were never included in a stable release of Crawl. They were considered for inclusion in 0.14, but with the removal of the Enchanted Forest, it was decided to remove them entirely.
