Orcus is typically described as having the head and legs of a goat, although with ram-like horns, a bloated body, bat-like wings, and a long tail.

Orcus cares for nothing save himself—not even his devotees and undead servants—and focused only on spreading misery and evil. One of his most identifiable symbols was the artifact known as the Wand of Orcus, a skull-topped wand with the power to slay any living being. Orcus also wielded a powerful artifact known as the Orcusword.

Thanatos is the 113th layer of the Abyss. It is a frozen necropolis, cold plane of ice, with thin air, black, moonlit sky and a place that belongs as much to the undead as to the tanar'ri.

Main threats

  • Cold Electrical Negative are the most common damage types.
  • Fire Divine is necessary for mini-bosses which are Balors.
  • All Undead here heal on Negative making this an unsuitable damage type for your primary weapon.

    • Map 2 (Oblivion's End) Enemies:
    • Map 3 (Everlost) Enemies:
    • Map 4 (Orcus Hall) Enemies:
  • Miniboss: Harthhoon, spams DoM for fun rendering casters helpless and use of healing potions problematic, also uses disintegrate meaning that dead party members will require high level cleric resurrection or similar effect to revive.
  • Boss: Orcus is a "grossly fat demon lord" covered in goat-like hair, 15 feet tall, with a goat-like head and legs, and the horns of a ram rather than those of a goat. His arms are human, but "Vast bat wings sprout from his back, and his long, snaky tail is tipped with a poisonous head"
    • No noteworthy special abilities, but quite resilient: Use Piercing, Positive and Fire, summons more creatures frequently including Balor aplenty.
