Useful info

Ironbound thunderhulks are lumbering ogres of the Vaults armed with a crude electric device. They can smite you with lightning, but only from a distance.

Tips & Tricks

  • Thunderhulks can hit you from the edges of your line of sight, but cannot hit you if you are two tiles away or closer.
  • Up close, they are only somewhat more durable than two-headed ogres but hit no harder than a regular ogre (though unlike normal ogres, they swing at normal speed). Keep close and keep hitting them until they go down.
  • Their willpower is fairly poor, making them easy to disable with Hexes or wands.


  • Ironbound thunderhulks received Blink Range in 0.28. They also went from 12 to 18 HD, increasing the damage of their Call Down Lightning.
  • Ironbound thunderhulks were added in 0.27.
