Flags Speaks
A mountain hobgoblin, recently come in search of the legendary Orb. Not foolhardy or reckless enough to delve into the depths of the Dungeon alone, Robin has built a small army of minions. Potential competitors will quickly find a stream of screaming goblins flying toward them!

Useful Info

Robin is a unique hobgoblin who wanders the early floors of the dungeon, accompanied by a massive band of goblin followers. Although none of them are particularly powerful individually, she will hurl her goblins at you, swarming you with opponents who she can then inspire, allowing them to deal significant amounts of damage.

Tips & Tricks

  • Limiting her ability to swarm you reduces her to a threat no stronger than Ijyb. If you can lure her around a corner or use a dead end to restrict the number of enemies that can reach you at once, you can avoid an embarrassing goblin death.
  • While Robin's goblins generate with her in one big swarm, goblins are mostly solitary monsters and don't possess the pack mentality to stay together as do other naturally swarming monsters. If you come across her (or any overly large group of goblins) that are mostly sleeping/resting, it's a simple task to draw away one or two on the edge of your (and their) line of sight and dispatch them individually, slowly decimating the swarm.
  • She always spawns with a helmet, letting some species gain a nice little AC bonus in the early game.
