Labyrinth  

Minotaurs and Minotaur Kings are the level 5 creatures of Dungeon. They are recruited from the Labyrinth.

"Minotaurs and Minotaur Kings live in labyrinths and devour all who enter. These bull-like humanoids are sure of their ability to dominate in battle and have good morale. This self image is well-founded as they are durable and have a very damaging axe attack." RoE manual

Special Ability: Positive Morale

Minotaur's positive morale ability can be affected only with Cursed Ground magical terrain or Spirit of Oppression artifact, since both interact with morale roll itself, rather than with morale level of the creature. Their morale cannot be decreased below +1 by the Sorrow spell, Holy Ground magical terrain effect, the morale forfeit for units from different towns or undead in the army, Bone and Ghost Dragon ability, any morale decreasing map objects effects and anti-morale artifacts in Horn of the Abyss.

Heroes with a specialty

  • Dace Dace the Overlord has minotaurs as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any minotaurs or minotaur kings for each level attained after 5th level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

  • They are one of the main forces of the Dungeon, aside from the Red and Black Dragons, mainly because of their specialty, high stats, and especially because of their damage that is comparable to a level 6's. However, their HPs are just above average among 5 level creatures, they are relatively fast only when upgraded, and their damage range is very high, meaning that Bless or Curse will affect them significantly. Avoid using them in melee attack against stacks who haven't spent their retaliation.
