A small, human-shaped agglomeration of salt. It was created by the last fugitive loyalists of the fallen eastern empire, forced in desperation to construct golems from local resources to defend themselves.

Useful Info

Saltlings are small, fast constructs. Hardly a threat on their own, they tend to appear in groups supporting ragged hierophants, peacekeepers, and servants of whispers. They are found almost exclusively in the Desolation of Salt.

Tips & Tricks

Like all constructs, saltlings make no noise when injured. Take advantage of this fact by pulling them away from their groups at the edge of your line of sight. The fewer targets between you and an actual threat you have to deal with, the better.
