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, which is limited to certain rare vaults found in various branches and in the realm of Zot.

They occasionally appear as monsters in the Dungeon Sprint map "Fedhas' Mad Dash."

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.
  • 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.


They could also be summoned as allies in Zot Defense.
