A drowsy, fluffy ovine whose coat sparkles with motes of dream dust. It gathers in herds and fills the air with dream dust, overwhelming its victims and putting them to sleep.

Its wool looks quite flammable.

“How undisturbed, the sleep of the foolish.”
-Philip K. Dick

Useful Info

Dream sheep are a step below the common yak, pack monsters that don't hit too hard and are about as tough as an iguana. They should not be remotely threatening when you first encounter them (usually in the Lair) unless you're already injured. Be aware: they can make you sleepy and vulnerable.

Tips & Tricks

  • Try to kite or axe them. Kill them quickly before they put you to sleep.
  • Note magic resistance does not protect you against their sleep effect.
  • The success rate of the sleep effect is higher the more dream sheep there are in your LOS.


  • Dream sheep were introduced in 0.19, replacing ordinary sheep that were removed.
