Composed of rock, the gargoyle is a statue come to life at the hand of an ambitious mage. Mostly irate at the world and grumbling to itself about anything from the state of the Elven nation to the weather, the gargoyle does not look so much inclined to fight as it is to curl up in a corner and look frightening. Still, it knows its task as a protector of its creator's domain, and will do its best to keep invaders from treading on its turf.

Recall Knowledge

Reflecting on the granite gargoyle, you recall that you once heard that creatures are the product of magical experiments to create non-living servants.
They are not known to cast any recognized spells.
They are known to carry loot in locked boxes.


  • Shard area was avoided due to mixed spawn but this is no longer the case with Tuesday Tiding 82
  • No longer use a charging attack that could take them out of combat if missed.
