Useful Info

Ironbound convokers are dangerous enemy support units which enhance the melee prowess of any monsters nearby, and will use their Word of Recall spell to call in reinforcements from elsewhere on the floor. They can be found in the Vaults and in the Desolation of Salt.

Tips & Tricks

  • Word of Recall takes 3 turns to complete. If you can kill, confuse, silence, scare, petrify, waterlog, or otherwise disable the convoker before it completes its spell, the reinforcements won't arrive.
  • Monsters can move on the turn they're recalled (but not always). If you're unlucky, you can take lots of damage in a single turn. Even worse, you can take lots of damage while a vault warden locks the doors and stairs.
  • Word of Recall can bring monsters out of vaults, including runed door and transporter vaults. It can recall any monster from a ghost vault except the player ghost itself, or bring monsters from the "door vault" with lots of out of depth enemies.


  • Prior to 0.27, these enemies were known as ironbrand convokers.
  • Prior to 0.17, curare needles could also interrupt Word of Recall.
  • Ironbrand convokers were added in 0.12.
