Useful Info

Deep elf priests are fragile deep elf worshipers of a god of death. When they aren't pelting you with Necromancy or raising the dead, they can also heal their allies. They are found in packs of deep elves in the Elven Halls and some baileys.

Tips & Tricks

While smiting is painful, the other deep elf casters are usually much more dangerous. Just be sure to quickly destroy any crawling corpses they may create before they can fuse and become dangerous. Negative energy resistance can be helpful to resist Malign Offering; however, since that spell requires line of sight, it is usually pretty easy to kill them if they can cast it. Be sure to prioritize them somewhat if they do get in sight, though: you don't want to be giving your HP away to all the angry elves surrounding you.


Prior to 0.13, they had Minor Healing but lacked Malign Offering. Prior to the introduction of monster Twisted Resurrection, they simply had Animate Dead.
