Useful Info

Hell hogs are extremely irritating demonic beasts that spit Sticky Flame at you as they charge into melee. Unlike delicious hogs, hell hogs are just barely edible. They appear in groups 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).
  • Conservation or mottled dragon armour will help preserve your scrolls from their Sticky Flame attacks.
