Bestiary Index

This Page was intended to be a reference guide to enable the player to be able to work out how the heck to kill some things in Wildlander. It Kinda grew from there to include all sorts of reference material from Requiem so that players wouldn’t have to go look up a billion & one perks, spells and the like to work out what the enemies were shooting at them.

This guide is broken up into several sections - Bandits / Mages / Forsworn / Necromancers will not be covered in the guide (with the exception to the Named Unique bosses) as there are far to many varieties to list, all of which have different perks, weapons, armor. The next section contains reference material to identify weaknesses of the armor specific human type enemies can do and the weapons they use.

Vampires Will be covered, but not in-depth as like bandits they have a lot of variations of Armor, weapons and base stats.

Ghosts and Dragur will only be in summary form for the various types. They will not have detailed breakdowns as various types of these NPC all look the same, but have differing stats.

Humanoid Enemies

For enemies wearing standard armor, and therefore with standard resistances you can check the armor guide here

For enemies weapons and arrows you can check the weapon guide here

For the Afflicted, the only difference between a Bandit and them is the addition of the Poisonous Breath ability - This brutally painful poison deals 50 damage for 2 seconds.

About these Guides

Variants Level/Health/Stamina/Magic if the creature comes in different sizes but same base creature. Shouts, in the case of dragons, as each variation has different shouts available to it.

Basic Stats Movement Speed, Melee/Ranged damage, Standard armor, Magical armor, Enemy ability to penetrate your armor.

In addition, Some enemies in the game have various special abilities. These include :-

  • Knockdown - a power attack from this creature will knock the player over unless they have enough mass to resist the attack.
  • Health Regeneration - Some creatures constantly regenerate health and require specific elemental attacks to stop the regeneration temporary.
  • Poisons - Most poisons in the game stack - so its best to use the scenery to block these attacks wherever possible.
  • Paralysis - any poison in the game can paralyse a player unless their poison resistance is high enough to counter. Some creatures can stun-lock you as their poison attacks are faster than your get-up speed.
  • Spell casting - Mage type enemies are some of the fastest and most dangerous to kill.
  • Disarm Shouts - Shouts which can send your weapon flying unless you have high enough Magic resistance to resist the shout.
  • Diseases - Some new diseases have been added to creatures which previously didn’t have any.
