Useful Info

An apis is a rare yak-type monster, found only on holy Ziggurat floors and holy Pan levels. They behave like all yaks, moving into melee range and hitting surprisingly hard with their holy horns (especially dangerous to undead or demonspawn characters). As they are favored by Elyvilon, she punishes those who kill them by inflicting irresistible but temporary weakness. Like most holy monsters, they may be neutral towards worshipers of good gods.

Tips & Tricks

  • Think of them as death yaks but stronger, particularly if you're vulnerable to holy damage.
  • The weakness effect passes quickly if you simply wait around for a little while. Don't explore needlessly while handicapped.


The apis was a sacred bull worshiped in ancient Egypt.


In 0.14, apises will appear in the Enchanted Forest.

Prior to 0.13, killing an apis did not trigger Elyvilon's wrath.
