Crystal ice golem

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The crystal ice golem is a golem added in UnNetHack. This powerful creature is only randomly generated within the icy confines of Sheol, along with the somewhat less dangerous ice golem. They can't be tamed.

The crystal ice golem shares some similarities with the crystal golem in SLASH'EM, as both have powerful melee attacks combined with random breath attacks. The crystal ice golem is slightly weaker than the SLASH'EM golem, presumably because it is made of ice rather than rock crystal: its base level is slightly lower (28, compared to 32), its MR is half that of the crystal golem, and it lacks fire resistance. However, its attacks are more powerful and it resists disintegration.

Unlike the crystal golem, the crystal ice golem does not death drop gems—or ice, for that matter.

A user has suggested improving this page or section as follows:

"Some of the stats for the crystal ice and regular ice golems seem reversed; e.g. the crystal ice golem has half the MR of the regular ice golem, and a higher frequency. Is this a mistake in the source code?"
