A hideous skeletal demon. It swoops through the air on powerful wings of ancient withered skin, taking sadistic joy from harrying those who would try to flee its grasp.

Useful Info

Hellwings are pesky tier-4 demons with average melee combat skills and decent regeneration. They are found in the Abyss, Pandemonium, and the Hells, and are often summoned by other monsters through the Summon Demon spell. They have a swoop attack that allows them to hit you from far away.

Tips & Tricks

  • Unless you've been weakened by an orange demon or are swarmed by demons, hellwings usually don't pose much of a melee threat.
