Darkborn Thrall (4e Creature)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Dominated by one of the Darkborn, these are remnants of humanoid souls, twisted and mutilated in body and mind until only a shadow of their former selves existed- all the rest embodies the corruption of the Darkborn.

Note from the Creator: I understand how overpowered this creature is for a 1st level minion. However, my intention is that this creature can still be incredibly useful down the line in my campaign. I upped the XP rate because I felt it might be a little too good.

Darkborn Thrall Tactics[edit]

Darkborn Thralls are generally totally dominated by some other Darkborn controller, but do not suffer the "Dominated" condition, as they have been changed into another being, not simply overcome by the mind of a powerful magic user. It is therefore that in this case the tactics of the Darkborn controller will be the tactics of the Thralls.

However, when there is not a controller leading a group of thralls, A darkborn thrall will behave rashly; they'll charge the first enemy that they see and then fight to the death. Use the "Surge Leech" power when they have been targeted by an attack that missed.
