Useful Info

Deep elf high priests are elven clergy that generally serve a supporting role to other deep elven mages. Along with the usual priestly smiting, expect to be blasted with damnation and possibly swarmed by abominations. They can most often be found in the Elven Halls (especially the bottom level) and the Vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Having a deep elf high priest around makes other deep elves significantly more dangerous. Not only can they heal their allies while damaging you, but Aura of Brilliance makes deep elven spellcasters even more dangerous than they already are.
  • If you can fight deep elf high priests on their own, they become significantly less threatening. This is especially true once you close to melee range, which generally discourages them from blasting you with damnation.
  • Silence is always useful, especially since it shuts down any other dangerous casters in the vicinity.
