Useful Info

Sun demons are fire-themed tier-3 demons. They are fast monsters with fiery melee attacks (+10-19 fire damage). They can be found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, created by Summon Demon, or found in various demon-based vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Sun demons are a fairly strong monster, at least in places where kobold demonologists and orc sorcerers are relevant threats. They hit moderately hard in melee, especially without rF+, and they are fast, making escape more difficult.
  • They are vulnerable to cold. With a few points in Evocations, a wand of iceblast can do the trick.
