Spriggans are tree spirits that vaguely resemble mortal women. They are hostile, and difficult to kill due to their ability to heal themselves and summon allies to their aid.

Spriggans can be found in a variety of wooded places. In Reaper's March, they're primarily found next to tall trees near places bordering the edge of the map, such as Fort Grimwatch, Greenhill, and Willowgrove.

Starting with Ascending Tide, some newer spriggan variants walk on two legs. These spriggans are rigged using the Sylvan Spriggan polymorph, often wield weapons, and are classified as NPCs instead of creatures.

Skills and AbilitiesEdit

A basic melee attack that does minor physical damage.
Nature's Swarm
The spriggan summons a swarm of insects, dealing moderate physical damage to all enemies in front of it as indicated by a red cone.
Summon Beast
the spriggans will summon an animal to assist it in combat. The kind of animal summoned scales with the difficulty and location of the summoner. They can summon durzogs, senche-tigers, wolves, thunderbug lords, ambush beetles, great bears, websnare spiders, venomspit spiders, dire wolves, and other beasts. Spriggans are vulnerable while a summon is active.[1]
Control Beast
The spriggan will channel a buff on the animal, increasing the target's spell and physical resistance. This spell can be interrupted to set the spriggan off balance.
Healing Salve
When hurt, the spriggan will heal itself. The heal ramps up over time, and will heal for a large amount if not interrupted. This spell can be interrupted to set the spriggan off balance.

In Moon Hunter Keep, the Hedge Maze Guardian will summon spriggans to heal itself at 75%, 50% and 25% health. They heal the boss for a great deal of health, and should be killed quickly. As long as the spriggans are alive, your group will not be able to make any progress in damaging the boss. More information on the mechanics of this fight can be found here.
