Useful Info

Spriggan defenders are well-trained spriggan warriors, wielding heavier weapons than most spriggans would bother with. Although still not terribly durable, they can take a punch and have higher evasion than most spriggans. They can be found as part of spriggan bands throughout the Depths and in various vaults, and will always be part of [[the Enchantress]' band.

Tips & Tricks

  • High accuracy attacks will help when facing spriggan defenders. Unavoidable spells such as Fireball, Freezing Cloud, and Airstrike work well.
  • They have a higher than normal chance of generating with weapons of distortion (10%). Be prepared.

History

Prior to 0.13, there was a variant spriggan defender known as a spriggan enchanter which added a variety of Hexes to their normal combat prowess.

During the brief period in which the Enchanted Forest was available in trunk, spriggan defenders could be found there.
