Useful Info

Deep elf priests are fragile deep elf worshipers of a god of death. When they aren't pelting you with Necromancy or raising the dead, they can also heal their allies. They are found in packs of deep elves most often in the Elven Halls, the Vaults, and some baileys.

Tips & Tricks

Deep elf priests are far from the deadliest opponents in the Elven Halls, but they should still merit a high priority. Letting them smite you or use your HP to heal their allies through Malign Offering can be aggravating, and killing other foes first just gives them fuel for Twisted Resurrection.


Deep elf priests were removed in 0.18.

Prior to 0.13, they had Minor Healing but lacked Malign Offering. Prior to the introduction of monster Twisted Resurrection, they simply had Animate Dead.
