Strategy and Comments

  • The Minion wearing this Tattoo will summon the Familiar, who acts as an additional minion in battle to fight alongside with your team. This familiar will fire arrows and is an Archer.
  • If the minion wearing the tattoo does not wield Weapons or cast Direct Damage Spells (DD), then the familiar will be created behind the minion wearing the tattoo.
  • To equip items to your Halidon Familiar you need an Amulet of Junction (AoJ). Some items you may consider equipping are a pair of Beleg's Gloves (BG), and a Helm of Clearsight (HoC).
  • Archery skill will be trained equal to Strength to provide a buffer for boosting Strength.
  • If you would increase this Strength more than 2.5 times the level of the Halidon Familiar, the Archery effect will become less than 1.00.
  • Elven Long Bow (ELB) damage modifier, and Plus-to-Hit (PTH) values, increase with the level of the HF.
  • When junctioning to this tattoo the junction minion should have 100 base DEX and STR for full effect.
  • The x of the ELB for HF only increases when the PTH increases.

Fun Facts
