Useful Info

Hellwings are pesky tier-4 demons with average melee combat skills and decent regeneration. They can make swooping attacks in range-4: when swooping, they land on the opposite side of a target, and instantly make a melee attack. They are found in the Abyss and Pandemonium, and are often summoned by other monsters through the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Unless you find a hellwing particularly early (mid-Dungeon, Lair), they usually don't pose much of a melee threat. The bigger threat is the hellwing appearing from behind, blocking your escape path.
