An ancient stone creature that has lived among these frozen caves since before Antaeus rent Cocytus into being. It tolerates its new neighbors begrudgingly, preferring the company of its petrified enemies. Veins of ice permeate its frozen stone flesh.

Useful Info

Narguns are found in Cocytus. They have high melee damage, but tend to have their ability to use it restricted by Cocytus’s layout of deep water lakes and rivers. Instead, they prefer to attempt to petrify you, causing almost certain death if other dangerous Cocytus enemies (such as hellions and wendigos) surround you.


Spell set I
Slot1 Petrify Natural flag

Tips & Tricks

  • Petrification immunity (granted by Statue Form, Storm Form or being a gargoyle) will render them utterly trivial.
  • Otherwise, stacking Willpower is extremely important to avoid the extreme amounts of damage caused by being pelted with seracfalls and AC-ignoring damnation while you are forced to stand still.
  • Narguns can be irresistibly damaged by Lee's Rapid Deconstruction, but the shrapnel they spray deals cold damage, which is virtually useless against most denizens of Cocytus.
