Useful Info

Ragged hierophants are support units, ill suited for direct combat. Instead, they reduce the damage done to their allies by redirecting it to themselves, and assault you from safety with Resonance Strike, a smite-targeted spell which grows stronger for every construct adjacent to the player, quickly whittling away players' health. They are found throughout the Desolation of Salt.

Tips & Tricks

  • While a ragged hierophant can make saltlings and peacekeepers significantly deadlier, they are fairly harmless on their own. If possible, pull their allies away from them with long-ranged attacks and quiet spells, going in for the kill once you've taken away their biggest weapons.
