“When Peleus, some distance away, saw him torn apart by the frightful wound he shouted: ‘Accept this tribute to the dead, at least, Crantor, dearest of youths’, and with his powerful arm, he hurled his ash spear, at full strength, at Demoleon. It ruptured the ribcage, and stuck quivering in the bone. The centaur pulled out the shaft minus its head (he tried with difficulty to reach that also) but the head was caught in his lung. The pain itself strengthened his will: wounded, he reared up at his enemy and beat the hero down with his hooves. Peleus received the resounding blows on helmet and shield, and defending his upper arms, and controlling the weapon he held out, with one blow through the arm he pierced the bi-formed breast.”
Fauns are pesky Hexes specialists who travel in packs, occasionally led by a satyr. Although individually weak, a pack will pelt you with a painful barrage of arrows and sling bullets while disabling you with spells. They can be found in the Shoals.
Tips & Tricks
- The multitude of Hexes you'll get hit with (particularly if satyrs are present), combined with the open layout of the Shoals, makes it difficult to engage faun packs in melee. That being said, leaving yourself open to ranged attacks can result in a lot of damage being piled on you quickly. Use whatever terrain is available to limit the number of enemies shooting you at any given time.
