A plain-looking elven fighter who is technically brilliant in many forms of combat, but over-confident because of it. She is complemented by the magical skills of her twin brother, Dowan.

Useful Info

Duvessa and Dowan are a pair of twin deep elf uniques that hunt through the Dungeon as a team and are only encountered together. Duvessa has the stats and gear of a deep elf fighter, while her brother is a somewhat competent magician; however, when either one is struck down, their sibling becomes significantly more dangerous. In Duvessa's case, this means going berserk the moment she sees you.


Tips & Tricks

  • Neither Duvessa nor Dowan will follow you up or down stairs unless their sibling is adjacent to you too (in which case they both will) or their sibling is dead.
  • The berserk effect only triggers the first time Duvessa sees you after killing Dowan. If you can escape up a flight of stairs or teleport away, she'll no longer have that advantage.
  • Dowan's upgraded spell list is much more dangerous than Duvessa's berserk. Kill Dowan first.
