Useful Info

Ravens are fast, flying pests that deal little damage. They are occasionally a welcome sight, as they sometimes spawn in a small vault that contains a few pieces of shiny jewellery they've collected, but they also appear as rare random spawns in the Elven Halls, as an accompaniment to various tengu, or in defense of a shambling mangrove.

Tips & Tricks

  • None needed, they're mostly harmless. Focus on their deadlier allies.
