Danger Level N/A
Material Eternium

The Chaos Orb of Elemental Water is a guaranteed artifact in ADOM, and one of the five Orbs that are mandatory for completing the game. As such, it can't be sold or lost by any means (e.g. attempting to sacrifice it or leave it in the Infinite Dungeon or wilderness).

Whilst worn in the Tool slot, the Chaos Orb of Elemental Water raises the PC's Willpower by 10. When 'U'sed, it restores all the PC's HP; though doing so adds 600 corruption points to the PC (300 with the elemental gauntlets equipped). Note that whilst it can also be used as a weapon, wielding it as such won't confer a willpower bonus.


It is compulsory to obtain this item to complete the game. Its significant willpower boost is very useful for casting effective ball spells (which increase in radius if the PC can raise their Willpower above 32), and in battles with dangerous enemies that try to confuse the PC, such as the Ancient Chaos Wyrm

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

It is carried by the Snake From Beyond in the Water Temple.
