|A large and hideous conglomeration of mangled body parts, demonically possessed and altered in ways that challenge your sanity.|
Large abominations are enormous piles of roughly connected humanoid body parts, animated by necromantic and demonic forces. Because of the random approach to their creation, they have variable capabilities, with speed, AC, EV, and HP being different for each abomination. Even so, they always deal significant damage in melee, much more than small abominations are capable of, and the fact that they may have above average speed can make them difficult to escape. They are commonly found in the Abyss, and some monsters may create them if they have access to sufficient corpses and the Twisted Resurrection spell.
Tips & Tricks
- You can create your own large abomination through the Twisted Resurrection spell by upgrading a small abomination with more corpses.
- One stat that isn't randomized is their magic resistance. Unfortunately, at 102, it is moderately high: don't expect wands to do much if you haven't trained Evocations. Similarly, those using Hexes at lower-than-average spell power may find they have some trouble affecting large abominations as well.
Being haphazard collections of random body parts, large abominations can take many forms:
In console, they can be any manner of colors. Neither the alternate tiles nor colors indicate anything about their stats.
In 0.14, they will be able to use stairs even when not adjacent to the player. However, they will only be able to heal by absorbing more corpses via the Twisted Resurrection spell.
