Lightning vortices are random monsters in ADOM. They are notable for the fact that they explode upon getting within melee range of the player or any other monster they are hostile to. Note that lightning vortices are much faster than an average PC, and can often even chase down characters wearing seven league boots.

Like all vortices, the message "You hear a distant wind" will be displayed on any level where a Lightning vortex is present.

Special abilitiesEdit

Common statsEdit

The monster memory lists their average stats as:
DV: 24, PV: 7, Hits: 60, Speed: 120.

The damage it deals to a character without resistances is at least around 75 points. Spellcasters, beware.

Corpse effectsEdit

Constructs never leave corpses.

Monster memoryEdit

A strange cloud of flaring lightning bolts is racing towards you. The bolts strike everything in its vicinity and seem to grow in strength the closer they get to you!
