Wandering fire elementals are a byproduct of summoning greater entities. They are too chaotic in their nature to be controlled by even the most powerful demonologist.


They usually roam alone.
Fire elementals will attack on sight.
They will try and eventually set the Hero/ine on fire, burning any exposed scrolls in the Backpack.
If you’re standing in water, the fire will go out right away, but the scrolls may still burn in the first turn.
Because fire elementals float above the floor, they don't set flammable floor tiles on fire by moving over them, and they're not harmed by water tiles.

Special notes

  • They are levitating enemies, so they can move over chasms & traps, without triggering them.
  • When receiving a Burning buff, they don’t receive any damage (they are immune to it), but rather gain 1 HP instead.


  • If you see a fire elemental approaching, stand on water, and fight from there, so you don’t take additional damage from burning.
  • Don’t use Wand of Firebolt, or Potion of Liquid Flame, on fire elementals, as they will not inflict any damage, but will slightly heal them instead!
  • If you did not buy the Scroll holder to protect your scrolls from fire, then, when you’re in the Dwarven Metropolis, it is advised to leave your scrolls somewhere safe, so they don’t burn up when you fight fire elementals.
