Tips & Tricks

  • Sonja may be a pest at range, but if she's wielding a distortion dagger, she's absolutely deadly in melee; her speed and three attacks per action mean she delivers 3-6 distortion strikes before most characters can even respond. However, she has very low HP and pathetic magic resistance, so most disabling Hexes will stop her easily, as will Airstrike or other unavoidable spells. Even with low Evocations skill, a wand of disintegration or wand of paralysis pretty much guarantees her defeat.
  • Poison resistance will render her darts harmless, but won't do much against her melee attacks.
