Useful Info

Sixfirhies are electricity-themed tier-3 demons. With a speed of 40 (which is treated as 66 for movement purposes), they are easily the fastest creatures in the game; fortunately, they pass 2/3 of their actions, only moving in bursts of a few turns every now and then. All the same, they have surprisingly painful melee attacks which deal 9-12 additional electricity damage if you lack resistance. They can be found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells, and some enemies may summon them with the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Like any ultra-fast opponent, characters with high AC will see a particularly dramatic reduction in their damage output compared to low-AC characters, especially if they also have rElec.

Trivia

  • The sixfirhy's name comes from a cat walking across a keyboard. (The original string of characters was "sxFR:?)hyyyyyyyy-\-".)

History

  • Prior to 0.19, sixfirhies could heal from electrical damage, although overcharging could kill them. Also they were tier-4 demons.
