A deft and surreptitious spriggan. It's ready to deliver a flurry of incapacitating poison needles, followed by a quick blade right under your fifth rib.

“I never stabbed anything that didn't stop being an immediate problem.”
-Jillian Zamussels, Erfworld, Rob Balder


Useful Info

Spriggan assassins are some of the more dangerous spriggan opponents you can encounter, especially when part of a group. Armed with a blowgun, a dagger or quick blade, and an assortment of debilitating needles, spriggan assassins can confuse or paralyse you even if you have poison resistance. Once in melee, they will then stab you for significant amounts of damage. Spriggan assassins can be found accompanying the Enchantress and in certain spriggan-themed vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • It's more than a little difficult to have both stasis and clarity at the same time, so a strong offense may be the best defense here. They're evasive but fragile, so try to hit them with strong unavoidable attacks if possible.
