Useful Info

Burial acolytes can be found in ossuaries and rarely in the Crypt. They are often found alongside derived undead allies and will buff them with swiftness and might. They can also heal them for small amounts with Malign Offering.

Tips & Tricks

  • Take them out before they can buff their undead friends. Use javelins or other piercing/smite targeted abilities if they are behind said undead.
  • Undead players should be wary of letting them get into melee range, where they will become susceptible to Dispel Undead.
  • Negative energy resistance can mitigate the damage of Malign Offering.
  • By the time you see them in Crypt, they are flimsy enemies compared to most of the other inhabitants.
