|| A swift, nightmarish bird whose razor-sharp metallic feathers drip with corrosive acid.
Caustic shrikes are devastatingly powerful flying pack hunters that swarm their victims and tear them apart with brutal corrosive attacks. They can be found in the Depths.
Tips & Tricks
- Shrikes are justification for carrying a ring of resist corrosion around while exploring the mid-game. They can prove devastating if you allow several of them to attack you at once; use narrow hallways (of your own if need be) to prevent this, especially if you lack resistance.
- For those who worship Okawaru, kills of caustic shrikes tend to award maximum piety per kill even well after you've achieved a fairly routine ability to dispatch them. Keep that in mind if you need a boost to take out one or more - if you invoke heroism and/or finesse, odds are you'll recover much of the piety you spent upon your victory.
