Useful Info

Blizzard demons are cold- and air-themed tier-2 demons. Although less dangerous than hellions or cacodemons, they can still deal significant cold and electricity damage to characters without the proper resistances, or heavy damage to flying characters. They can be found in the Ice cave, the Abyss, Cocytus, and Pandemonium (particularly in Lom Lobon's domain).

Tips & Tricks

  • Blizzard demons aren't too terrifying on their own - by the time they start appearing naturally, you'll likely have the proper resistances and high enough AC to mitigate the damage output of their spells. Even so, allowing them to hang out around in the background while you deal with other opponents is dangerous; repeated Airstrikes can rack up heavy damage over time. Try to keep them out of your line of sight if you can't deal with them immediately, particularly if you're at risk of getting tormented as well.
  • Flight magnifies the damage output of their Airstrikes. Don't fly around them if you can help it.
