*He is generally easier for melee fighters to deal with, assuming they can keep him in melee range for long enough; his melee attack is crippling for casters, but is negligible to an armoured fighter. If you don't mind burning through your stack of [[scrolls of blinking]], a [[haste]]d melee goon can chase him around the chamber, smashing him every step of the way.

Stoic and inscrutable, Lom Lobon is an ancient demon infamous for his mastery of magic. Rumoured to be the most learned being in the halls of Pandemonium, he is at times sought out by mortal wizards who offer their souls in exchange for the secrets of the arcane. Lacking the terrible wrath present in most demons, Lom Lobon's single eye instead hides a cold, impartial cruelty.


Useful Info

Lom Lobon is a unique Pandemonium lord and guardian of the magical rune. It packs some powerful cold, wind, and electricity damage spells, the most powerful healing spell in the game, and keeps a number of wizards and blizzard demons on hand to assist him. You can find him on his special Pandemonium floor, which has grey floors and white walls.

Tips & Tricks

  • He has some nasty spells, but he's not too resilient. He'll attempt to blink away and cast either Glaciate, Tornado, or Conjure Ball Lightning when you get too close. Have rC++ at least, preferably rC+++, and definitely rElec before facing him.
  • He is generally easier for melee fighters to deal with, assuming they can keep him in melee range for long enough; his melee attack is crippling for casters, but is negligible to an armoured fighter. Some form of haste, in addition to being a generally good idea around such a powerful enemy, can help you keep up with him as he blinks.
  • Weapons of holy wrath will do very heavy damage, but weapons of antimagic very nearly paralyze him. Either one is a good choice.

History
