These elite spriggan warriors are known for their prowess with advanced weaponry and their unbelievable agility.

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 are never found in the Lair:8 spriggan forest endings, but are a frequent sight in the spriggan forest vaults that can appear in the later parts of the main Dungeon, particularly those that house the Enchantress.

Variant Spriggan Defender

You may encounter a spriggan enchanter while exploring one particular vault. These casters are about on par with their defender brethren, but always come capable of obnoxious Hexes. Defeating them will earn you a magic quickblade and several potions of invisibility.

Spells: Confuse, Ensorcelled Hibernation, Invisibility, Haste

A spriggan particularly skilled in the arts of hexes and charms - and, apparently, lethal with a quick blade.

Tips & Tricks


In 0.13, they will be commonly found in the Enchanted Forest. Also, the spriggan enchanter will be a new base enemy, not a variant.
