'''Ragged hierophants''' are fierce enemy support fighters who reduce the damage done to friendly [[saltling]]s and [[peacekeeper]]s by redirecting it to themselves. While they lack the healing ability of [[ironheart preserver]]s, they make up for it with their formidable [[Resonance Strike]], calling forth the power of the earth to smite foes. As [[Resonance Strike]] grows stronger for every two [[list of constructs|constructs]] (i.e. said [[saltling]]s and [[peacekeeper]]s) adjacent to the player, they can quickly escalate the amount damage players take. They found in the [[Desolation of Salt]] in company of [[saltling]]s and [[peacekeeper]]s and occasionally with [[servant of whispers|servants of whispers]], [[imperial myrmidons]], [[ironbrand convoker]]s, and [[halazid warlock]]s

Useful Info

Ragged hierophants are support units, ill suited for direct combat. Instead, they reduce the damage done to their allies by redirecting it to themselves, and assault you from safety with Resonance Strike, a smite-targeted spell which grows stronger for every construct adjacent to the player, quickly whittling away players' health. They are found throughout the Desolation of Salt.

Spells

Slot1 Injury Bond Wizard flag
Slot2 Resonance Strike (3d9+) Wizard flag

Tips & Tricks

  • While a ragged hierophant can make saltlings and peacekeepers significantly deadlier, they are fairly harmless on their own. If possible, pull their allies away from them with long-ranged attacks and quiet spells, going in for the kill once you've taken away their biggest weapons.

History

Ragged hierophants were added in 0.19.
