Useful Info

Imperial myrmidons are fast, aggressive support hexers with melee attacks that halve your magic resistance, essentially being a crossbreed between phantasmal warriors and vampire knights. Disabling you with status effects and carving your health away with Agony, they are dangerous on their own and deadly when paired with allies. They are found in the Desolation of Salt, usually guarding treasure vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Three pips of magic resistance should be enough to be safe; that way, when your MR is halved, the hexes still have a fairly low (lower than 25%) of succeeding. Less is only risky if you engage them in melee; if you can defeat them at range, it's not much of an issue, though you might want a potion of curing on hand to end confusion early.
