Useful Info

Deep elf sorcerers are deadly deep elf casters with a frustrating and dangerous variety of spells. They are commonly found in the lower portions of the Elven Halls, particularly within the massive treasure vault, but they may also be found in the upper portions of that branch, wandering the Vaults and the Depths in deep bands, and guarding certain baileys.

Tips & Tricks

  • Like most of the more powerful deep elf opponents, deep elf sorcerers should be a high priority. They deal less direct damage than a deep elf annihilator, perhaps, but they can still pile on damage quickly with hellfire, and if you aren't high enough level to deal with the Abyss, treat them with caution and pile on whatever magic resistance sources you can.
  • If you can get close enough to silence one, you can tear it apart in melee. Just be prepared for draining (rN+), a trip to the Abyss (high MR), summoned tier-3 demons, and Hellfire (high HP) to smack you if you have to charge in. Lure it behind corners or nuke it at range as fast as you can if you don't think you can close the distance quickly.

History

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