Soul Hugger feeds on damned souls, but they aren't an easy meal to find. However, this monster knows his way around Hell, and he has paid one of the Soulfagi to "lose" a soul or two from time to time when carrying them around areas of punishment. Thus, the Soulfagous gets an extra pay and Soul Hugger gets his dinner!

Role: Self-Sustaining Attacker

Overview

Soul Hugger is an odd monster. He was one of the first attempts by SocialPoint at making a really bulky Attacker that keeps themselves alive constantly. Soul Hugger goes in a direction that heavily favors matchups against Spirit monsters, and his version of healing is all in his Life Steal skills. He was also one of the first monsters to feature the really powerful Resurrection Block trait, which this trait and his skills leads him to be a really unique, but honestly not a great monster.

Pros:

  • Great Traits and Life
  • Good stats in general
  • Lots of self-sustaining skills
  • Extra Turn + Spirit Hater move
  • Special is real powerful: AoE 55 damage + PER + Self 100% Life Steal and Double Life + Team NER
  • Moderate to low cooldowns and stamina costs
  • Unique Relic slots that give him many interesting options

Cons

  • Only has Stamina Leak as a negative status effect and you won't be even using it anyways
  • Lack of good AoE moves
  • Reverse/Negate Healing ruins him
  • Outside of Soul Dessert, has pretty low damage on most skills
  • Heavily outclassed by other Elites

Counters

  • Soul Hugger's main gimmick is to steal the opponents' life, so Reverse Healing monsters can hurt him a lot. Such examples include Dr. Marihelson and Pierceid.
  • Strong Light attackers like Arumel and PZ Ronin can turn him into dinner.
  • Easily denied by everything except Possession and Corruption
