Useful Info

Ereshkigal is an ethereal demon lord who guards the bone rune on the lowest floor of Tartarus. She is notable for being fast and very difficult to hit, and calls demons to her aid while blasting you with cold and negative energy spells. She is encountered with a pack of shadow fiends at her side.

Spells: Bolt of Draining (3d22), Bolt of Cold (3d27), Summon Greater Demon, Symbol of Torment, Paralyze, and Minor Healing.

Tips & Tricks

  • Max life protection and cold resistance are advised to minimize the damage from her bolts, while high magic resistance or an amulet of stasis is necessary to prevent yourself from being paralyzed and torn to pieces. Torment resistance helps immensely as well, as both she and her Fiends will be tormenting you regularly.
    • While Necromutation will provide living characters with immunity to torment, her Shadow fiends can quickly unmake undead characters with Dispel Undead. Keep a large pack of summoned minions in the way to block their line of fire if you choose to face her while undead.
  • Her evasion can be a major headache unless you have ways around it. Powerful, undodgeable spells suchs as Shatter or Fire Storm work well (Ice Storm is less effective as she has cold resistance, but is still an option). Straight melee characters will have a harder time of it, but the Shining One's divine halo and holy wrath weapons can help make your swings much more effective. Regardless of what you play, Mass Abjuration is almost necessary to keep her reinforcements from overwhelming you.

Trivia

In Mesopotamian mythology, Ereshkigal was the goddess of Irkalla, the land of the dead or underworld.
