An imposing idol of some nameless arctic god, carved in glistening deep blue ice. Freezing vapours swirl about it, and a chill pervades the air.


Useful Info

Ice statues are stationary guardians which use assorted Ice Magic to kill you from a distance and summon ice beasts while you're in their LOS. Unlike some statues, ice statues are immune to wands of disintegration. Instead, use fire or LRD to make short work of them. They are commonly found in the Ice Cave, and occasionally accompany Antaeus in the depths of Cocytus.

Tips & Tricks

  • If you intend to charge in and smash them in melee, drop your potions first or bring Conservation.
  • Fire Magic suggestions:
    • Statues are stationary, so you can hit them with Sticky Flame, blink away, and repeat the process when they stop melting. Bolt of Fire/wand of fire kills them even faster.
    • If you have fireball, you don't even need to be in their LOS to hit them: stay around a corner and target an adjacent square.
    • Another strategy is to make a wall of Conjure Flame (it impedes ice beasts and fizzles ice spells) and blast them from cover.
