Useful Info

Orb Guardians are enormous creatures which prowl the chambers of the Orb of Zot. They lack any special abilities, but are fast, come in large numbers, are durable enough to handle a few turns of abuse, and often wander into combat as you're fighting the scarier monsters of Zot. Normally, they are only found in Orb chamber of Zot:5, though they can spawn anywhere during the ascension.

Tips & Tricks

  • If you're encountering Orb Guardians, you're almost there! Please be careful.
  • Although by no means harmless, Orb Guardians are normally one of the least threatening enemies found on Zot:5. Try not to fight them near a moth of wrath- a berserk Orb Guardian hits much harder and faster than normal.
  • Orb Guardians are natural animals with no resistances, average defenses, and only moderate hit dice, so almost any means of disposing of enemies will work on them. Being loud will attract more enemies, though.
