|A hateful demon, desirous to see all life destroyed by its damnation.|
Hellions are dangerous tier-2 demons that blast you with smite-targeted damnation, dealing moderate damage no matter your AC or resistances. They are found in Pandemonium and the Hells, and can be summoned by many spellcasting monsters through the Summon Demon spell.
Tips & Tricks
- Hellions are relatively fragile and vulnerable to cold. If you have a wand of iceblast, try to hit them as soon as they are in range to take them out before they can deal too much damnation.
- Be careful if you're facing hellions in the presence of tormenting enemies. A blast of damnation can be lethal after you've had your HP cut in half a couple times.
- Silence does not prevent demonic spellcasting. Standing next to it in melee may trick it into making weak physical attacks against you instead, however.
- If you have a friendly hellion serving you, be careful not to stand next to its target. It will make no attempt to preserve you if you walk into its damnation blast zone.
