Useful Info

Orc high priests are similar to orc priests, but are significantly more dangerous. Along with their smite attack, they can summon dangerous demons and heal themselves as well as their allies. They are often found in the Orcish Mines (but may appear earlier).

Tips & Tricks

Most characters first exploring the Orcish Mines aren't prepared for dealing with several tier-3 demons along with a horde of heavily armed orcs, so try not to give orc high priests time to summon much. Don't be afraid to run if a fight suddenly gets overwhelmingly dangerous.
