Useful Info

Fire elementals are animated beings of flame, dealing purely fire damage with their attacks and leaving a trail of flame clouds behind them. They are resistant to most elements, but vulnerable to cold and fragile in general.

They are rarely found normally except in fire-themed vaults or as part of Azrael's band of monsters, though you can summon them yourself by invoking Qazlal's Elemental Force when clouds of fire (including those from a forest fire) are visible.

Tips & Tricks

  • Fire resistance will reduce their damage tremendously.
  • A couple of zaps from a wand of iceblast or other cold attack should destroy them.
  • They have complete immunity to fire damage. Although they ignore most Fire Magic, you can still take them out with either Bolt of Magma or Fire Storm, as those also deal physical damage.
  • If using Qazlal's Elemental Force, the friendliness of the elemental will depend on the source of the cloud: Your clouds are friendly, ambient clouds are neutral, enemy clouds are hostile.

History

Prior to 0.19, you could summon your own fire elementals by evoking a lamp of fire.
