Useful Info

Hell hogs are irritating demonic beasts that spit Sticky Flame at you as they charge into melee. Unlike delicious mortal hogs, hell hogs are just barely edible. They appear in large bands in the depths of the Abyss, Pandemonium, and Gehenna.

Tips & Tricks

  • As irritating as they may be, keep an eye out for them while exploring the various demonic branches. So long as you have poison resistance, they're a useful source of food (particularly for trolls, who have enough else to worry about in Hell without their food clock trying to kill them).
  • Mottled dragon armour will prevent the Sticky Flame status effect, but even a single rank of fire resistance will render the damage it deals inconsequential.
