Sinister agents of the Hag, the Crones are women that joined of the Coven of Witches that resides within the Weald. Utilizing a curious mixture of herbs and other unsavory ingredients, these women operate by debuffing heroes for their allies to strike, inflicting stress while dimming the torch, or poisoning heroes themselves with the same blight that permeates the woods.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Crones are Human enemy support units that appear in the Weald. These enemies can target two heroes at once with Curse of Vulnerability - reducing ACC and DODGE - and Embrace the Dark, a similar spell to Cultist's Stressful Incantation. If forced to the front they use Fetid Censer, which inflicts blight on the front two ranks.

Curse of Vulnerability increases enemy's chances of landing one of their lethal attacks on the Heroes, and even worse so, the Crone will target two members of your party with it at once. She should be prioritized first in any battle. Since the Crone currently starts every battle in stealth, consider bringing de-stealthing abilities, notably Occultist's Vulnerability Hex (reduces the Crone's DODGE), or AoE abilities.
