Useful Info

Gnoll sergeants are deadlier than the gnolls they lead into combat, armed with better equipment (polearms, medium armour, and often a shield), more HP, and often a potion of curing. Along with gnoll support, they are also often accompanied by hounds, war dogs, or gnoll shamans. They can be found in the Dungeon on gnoll-themed floors or occasionally leading a pack elsewhere.

Tips & Tricks

Much like orc warriors, they are only as dangerous as the equipment they wield. As they usually appear with groups of minions, any spells or wands which target multiple tiles are useful.
