A gaunt spirit of frozen hunger, so ravenous it will consume friend and foe alike. According to legend, if one cuts off its legs, it will feast upon its own marrow. It stalks those lost wandering in the cold and hunts with the force of blizzards.

Useful Info

Wendigos are found in Cocytus. Their signature ability is turning nearby simulacra into blasts of ice, dealing heavy damage. Their secondary spell lets them paralyze you for one turn and deal damage, possibly to blast you with an additional seracfall.


Spell set I
Slot1 Seracfall (3d28) Magical flag
Slot2 Stunning Burst (2d17) Magical flag

Tips & Tricks

  • Paralysis for even a single turn can be deadly, especially if there is a group of monsters nearby.
  • Seracfalls do extreme damage, partially bypass cold resistance and completely ignore your EV score. Wendigos cannot use this lethal spell if no simulacra are in your line of sight, so make generous use of Ignition or other area-of-effect spells to ensure they never share the same screen.
