Useful Info

Burning bushes are stationary plants that are perpetually on fire, spitting flames at any target that comes near. They can see invisible targets and aggressively defend their territory. Fortunately, they are usually only found as summoned allies in Zot Defense or as monsters in the Dungeon Sprint map "Fedhas' Mad Dash," so most players will never encounter them. Certain rare vaults in the Realm of Zot may contain them, however, usually along with lightning spires and the significantly more dangerous oklob plants; they may also appear in fire-themed vaults elsewhere in the Dungeon.

Spell: Throw Flame (3d7)

Tips & Tricks

  • By the time you see one, burning bushes are barely any threat at all. Deal with the more serious threats first.
  • If you don't have conservation, drop any valuable scrolls before facing them.
  • Fire resistance will reduce the damage they deal to you while Repel Missiles will make it harder for them to hit you in the first place.
