|| An unfathomably ancient skeleton. It has hundreds of golden sigils etched onto its bones, and pulses with terrible, unholy power.
Ancient champions are dangerous undead foes with powerful spellcasting abilities and good weapons and armour. They can be found in the Crypt, often leading a band of skeletal warriors.
Tips & Tricks
- All ancient champions are considerable threats in melee, wearing plate mail and wielding heavy, branded two-handed weapons, in addition to being able to haste themselves. However, their spell sets vary in threat level: Bolt of Draining is fairly negligible if you have good negative energy resistance (recommended for exploring the Crypt), while Iron Shot is generally harder to deal with.
- Despite their deadliness and solid defenses, they don't have terribly high HP; The irresistible damage from Dispel Undead or Lee's Rapid Deconstruction in particular will take care of these very easily.
