Useful Info

Deep elf high priests are elven priests that boast an impressive spell list. Along with the usual priestly smiting, expect to be blasted with hellfire and attacked by powerful summoned demons. They can most often be found in the Elven Halls (especially the last level) and the Vaults.


Spell set I
Slot1 Aura of Brilliance Priest flag
Slot2 Call Down Damnation (3d15) Priest flag
Slot3 Malign Offering (2d17) Priest flag

Slot5 Twisted Resurrection Priest flag

Tips & Tricks

  • These suicidal elves cast Damnation no matter how close you are to them. They also tend to wield bows, so it's safer to get close and cut them down.
  • Silence is always useful.


In 0.18, Deep elf high priests can no longer cast Summon Demon.

In 0.13, Malign Offering replaced Minor Healing.
