Tips & Tricks

  • Blork is basically a beefier orc wizard. He has more attack spells and Haste, but lacks Confuse. Because he can haste himself, it's more difficult to run away. Otherwise, unless he spawns with a big weapon, you can treat him like a strong orc wizard.
  • If you worship Beogh, he may join you as a follower.


  • Blork the orc is a reference to Mork from Ork, a rainbow-suspenders-wearing alien from the 70's television show "Mork & Mindy".
  • If you polymorph him, his name will change accordingly (e.g. he might become Blork the centaur).


  • In 0.32, Blork the orc will become Blorkula the orcula, a vampire that splits into multiple randomly-colored vampire bats when he dies. Additionally:
  • Prior to 0.27, he could cast Invisibility when low on health.
