The Depths

Version 0.30: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
The Depths are the deepest part of the dungeon proper, subject to the corrupting influence of the Realm of Zot without being considered a part of it.

Depths entry.png The Depths are a four-floor branch accessed through a guarded portal on Dungeon:15. Its layout generally resembles that of the Dungeon, although it has a greater tendency toward open spaces and elaborate full floor vaults. Along with several entrances to the Abyss, the Vestibule of Hell, and Pandemonium and an entrance to a Ziggurat, you can find the entrance to the Realm of Zot on Depths:4, guarded by a variety of draconian guards.


  • Abyss entry.png A portal to the Abyss always spawns on Depths:3. Other Depths floors have a 33% chance to have a portal.
  • Hell entry.png An entrance to the Vestibule of Hell appears on every Depths floor.
  • Ziggurat portal.png One ziggurat portal spawns on a random Depths floor.
  • Pandemonium entry.png A portal to the Pandemonium always spawns on Depths:2. Other Depths floors have a 25% chance to have a portal.


Generally, it isn't advised for you to enter the Depths right after you complete D:15. There are easier areas available (Lair and its branches, Orcish Mines, and The Vaults).


These are some of the monsters you can expect to encounter in the Depths:
