|An apprentice summoner with a flowing moustache. He has funny ideas about honour.|
Eustachio is a unique summoner, usually armed with leather armour and a sabre, either of which may be enchanted or branded. He usually fights with the aid of a summoned army of rats, bats, and (if you're unlucky) imps and quasits.
Tips & Tricks
- He likes to surround you with summons and then blink away. When this happens, remember that his summons give no rewards when killed, and avoid getting bogged down trying to chop your way through all of them.
- The best strategy is to lure him past a blind corner and beat him to a pulp without letting him summon anything. This applies even to casters, as his summons may block the line of fire of your most powerful spells. Get in close and nuke him quick.
- If you find yourself in melee with him and suddenly discover you've lost half your health, retreat immediately; his sabre occasionally comes with a devastating electrocution brand.
- If he's already got a wall of summoned monsters around him and you have Mephitic Cloud available, try to hit as many targets as you can with its blast radius. A crowd of confused targets will tear itself apart quickly enough.
Prior to 0.8, Eustachio would only appear on D:8-13.
