|A spriggan whose connection with the birds and the beasts is exceptionally strong. Revelling in nature, these protectors of forests are the doom of anyone who so much as snaps a twig.|
Spriggan druids are deadly spriggan spellcasters whose powers are dependent upon the forests which they guard. They can deal irresistible damage to you each turn you spend adjacent to a tree, blast you with irresistible Conjurations, and summon savage wildlife from elsewhere on the floor to come to their aid. On top of that, upon death, all animal-intelligence monsters able to see it fall are healed and buffed to deal more damage. They can be found in the Swamp, accompanying the Enchantress, or in spriggan-themed vaults, such as the occasional spriggan forest found on Lair:8 (or 7).
Variant Spriggan Druid
You may encounter young spriggan druids while exploring the spriggan forest vault on Lair:8. These are somewhat less durable than the mature versions, but are still capable of casting any of a mature druid's most deadly spells.

Tips & Tricks
- Fighting a spriggan druid within its forest can prove fatal, as their Awaken Forest spell will cause you to take damage every turn you spend adjacent to a tree. If possible, lure them out and fight in a clearing, or burn the forest down first with powerful Fire Magic.
- Druid's Call immediately teleports several animals from elsewhere on the floor to the druid's aid. On Lair:8, this often includes death yaks and hydras. If possible, try to kill off the entire population of a floor before engaging a spriggan druid, strongly consider fighting them from a distance, and do not simply Tab combat them; you'll want to react to the reinforcements quickly.
- They're fragile enough that a heavy initial assault can take them out before they have time to summon allies. Try to take them out quickly to avoid complicating matters with reinforcements.
