|A placid, sacred bull of Elyvilon.|
For a list of all holy monsters, see list of holy monsters.
An apis is a rare yak-type monster, found only on holy Ziggurat floors and holy Pan levels. They behave like all yaks, moving into melee range and hitting surprisingly hard with their holy horns (especially dangerous to undead or demonspawn characters).
Tips & Tricks
- Think of them as death yaks but stronger, particularly if you're vulnerable to holy damage.
The apis was a sacred bull worshiped in ancient Egypt.
- Prior to 0.15, Elyvilon could punish the player for killing an apis by inflicting irresistible but temporary weakness. Also, hostile apis could turn neutral if the player worshipped a good god and was sufficiently pious.
- In 0.14, apis were supposed to appear in the Enchanted Forest.
- Prior to 0.13, killing an apis did not trigger Elyvilon's wrath.
