Tips & Tricks

  • All ancient champions are considerable threats in melee, wearing plate armour/chain mail and wielding heavy, branded two-handed weapons, in addition to being able to haste themselves.
  • 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.
