“Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a thousand times, and now how abhorr’d in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it.”
-William Shakespeare, _The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark_, V, 1. 1603.

Useful Info

Flying skulls are weak pack monsters, fast and prone to noisy shrieking. They are found in the Crypt, the Tomb, the Hells, the Abyss, and Pandemonium.

Tips & Tricks

  • Although mostly harmless, they attract enough attention to be a pest to stealthy characters.
  • If you know Lee's Rapid Deconstruction, they make excellent sources of shrapnel. Of course, by using LRD, you'll be abandoning stealth entirely.
