- This article is about the standard creature; for the summoned version, see Shadow fiend (summoned).
Dark and dangerous creatures from the dreaded lower planes, shadow fiends never hunger or thirst, attacking only to satisfy their desire to do evil.
Special abilities Edit
A shadow fiend has the usual undead immunities to critical hits, death magic, disease, level drain, ability drain, mind-affecting spells, paralysis, poison, and sneak attacks. Furthermore, these monsters are incorporeal (which implies 50% concealment).
Due to the presence of a special AI script (namely
x2_ai_shadow), a shadow fiend normally forgoes its regular attack to conduct a shadow attack every round.
However, interrupting the attack, such as by knocking down the shadow fiend, can cause the monster to resort to its normal claw/claw/bite attacks.
