Useful Info

Holy swine are one of the least dangerous (and also least common) holy monsters. Apart from their one-tile halo auras, holy-branded melee attacks, and fast movement speed, they are actually fairly boring opponents. They are occasionally found in Pandemonium, and are created when a holy monster is affected by the Porkalator spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Like all holy monsters, they may be peaceful toward worshipers of good gods.
  • Holy swine can provide a source of chunks for characters who happen to be starving in Pandemonium. Worshipers of the Shining One or Zin will be punished for desecrating holy remains, however.
