Useful Info

Salamander firebrands were fast-moving salamanders which created a ring of flame clouds around their enemies when they attacked in melee. They could be found in the Snake Pit, the Depths and the Vestibule of Hell.

Tips & Tricks

  • As is the case with all salamanders, fire resistance greatly reduces the threat they pose. With sufficient resistance and AC, you can likely ignore the flame clouds they produce without taking much damage. If you don't have fire resistance, however, consider blinking if you need to escape without getting scorched.
