|An ancient undead sorcerer, exhumed by the living divines Sheza and Sargol and forced to labour night and day to anchor them to the world. Even after the fall of the divine twins, it works to resurrect its fallen masters.|
Halazid warlocks are powerful undead spellcasters who guard the deteriorating treasure vaults of the Desolation of Salt alongside servants of whispers, ragged hierophants, imperial myrmidons, and the usual bands of saltlings and peacekeepers. Their Shadow Creatures will quickly swarm you with reinforcements, and their Bolt spells will punish any player lacking the proper resistances. Occasionally, they will sacrifice an ally, creating an explosion of up to 110 negative energy damage.
Tips & Tricks
- Unlike the other swarms of enemies found in the Desolation of Salt, the Shadow Creatures from a halazid warlock are summoned, not permanent. Aura of Abjuration is an excellent method of clearing out their enormous summoned hordes. If you lack that spell, do what you can to engage them close up quickly. There may not be any blind hallway corners to lure them around, but the cloud cover can be very useful for avoiding a long-range battle.
- Due to the sheer damage potential of Ghostly Sacrifice, negative energy resistance is particularly important for fighting halazid warlocks. Use as much as you can; rN+++ will render you immune to their worst spells.
- Don't forget that these units, unlike everything else here, are undead. Negative energy attacks will do nothing against them, but Dispel Undead tears them to ribbons quickly.
