Tips & Tricks

  • Like most deep elves, they can inflict impressive damage, but are also rather frail and possess no elemental resistances (not even to fire).
  • Even one rank of fire resistance with significantly reduce the threat they pose. Good reason to carry around swap rings like a ring of fire
  • Wands of iceblast are great at taking out them out along with their summons.


Deep elf pyromancers were added in 0.27 as a fire-focused, single book version of the deep elf mage.
