The efreet is a third-level creature from the Asylum town in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.

Comments Edit

The Efreeti is a highly mobile creature, perfect for attacking the enemy where it's weakest. The immunity to fire also makes it extra useful for Chaos mages: send the Efreet into enemy lines, let the enemy units surround it, then use Fireball, Fire Ring or Inferno to blast the area.

It has fewer hit points than the Nightmare, and it lacks the Terror Spell, but the mobility and Fire Shield are great advantages.



Flying allows this creature to fly over obstacles, creatures, heroes, and castle walls.


Fire Shield surrounds this creature in a wall of fire, allowing it to do fire damage in addition to its normal attack to an enemy.

In combat, this creature's normal attack is a Fire Attack, so targets with Fire Resistance will take less damage.

Fire Resistance makes this creature immune to fire-based spells, and to damage from breath attacks if the creature is a secondary target. The creature also takes half damage from enemies with fire-based attacks.
