Useful Info

Mummy priests are the animated remains of powerful practitioners of Necromancy. Although they can summon demonic or undead reinforcements, their biggest strength lies in their ability to smite or torment you at will. Their mummy death curses are some of the worst you will encounter. Fortunately, they are slow and easily run from if you turn around as soon as you see them. Mummy priests are found in the Tomb or near its entrance, in the Vestibule of Hell guarding the entrance to Tartarus, and on Tomb-themed Ziggurat floors.

Tips & Tricks

  • Mummy priests are extremely dangerous opponents, tormenting and smiting you from a safe distance while their summons and mummy allies slow you down. Don't let them live any longer than you have to.
  • Catching them with Silence will shut down all of their spells, making them much more manageable.
  • A ring of sustain abilities and being undead through Necromutation or just by nature will take much of the sting out of their death curse. Abjuration is also useful for getting rid of any demonic reinforcements.
