|Guardian mages clad in pattern-etched armour, convokers can recite a word of recall to summon distant allies to their location, or imbue them with unnatural might.|
Ironbrand convokers are dangerous enemy support units which enhance the melee prowess of any monsters nearby, and will use their Word of Recall spell to call in reinforcements from elsewhere on the floor. They can be found in the Vaults and in the Desolation of Salt.
Tips & Tricks
- Word of Recall takes 3 turns to complete, and requires the caster be able to breathe. If you can kill, confuse, silence, scare, petrify, or otherwise disable the convoker before it completes its spell, the reinforcements won't arrive. Hitting him with a curare needle is an excellent method that doesn't have to overcome the victim's hit dice or magic resistance, so if you have a clean shot, take it.
