Useful Info

Sun demons are fire-themed tier-3 demons. They are fast, boast several resistances, and have powerful fiery melee attacks, making them a threat to characters who encounter them without the right preparations. They can be found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells, and guarding their entrances.

Some monsters will summon them through the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • They deal an additional 10-19 fire damage per hit in melee, bypassing AC. Use fire resistance if it's available.
  • They are vulnerable to cold, so a common wand of iceblast can easily vanquish them.
