Useful Info

Executioners are terrifying tier-1 demons that move at twice normal speed. Against poorly armoured characters, they can deal huge amounts of damage very quickly, especially since they usually haste themselves at the start of a fight.


Spell set
Slot1 Pain (d14) Demonic flag
Slot2 Haste Demonic flag

Tips & Tricks

  • Spellcasters should kill executioners at range or escape as quickly as possible, as anything with low AC will be torn to shreds in melee. They can't fly, so hiding behind deep water or lava will thwart them.
  • Characters with high AC and GDR can engage them in melee with reasonable safety, as their individual attacks aren't too bad.
  • They are somewhat resistant to all elements, so use physical attacks, holy wrath, or irresistible attacks against them.
