Surtlings are aggressive creatures found in Ashlands and near Fire geysers. They are small flaming imps that are relatively weak, especially in Swamps where the constant raining significantly reduces the damage from their ranged fireball attack.

  • Surtling is most likely a reference to Surtr, a mighty fire giant in Norse mythology.
  • The flames around 1-star Surtlings are blue with 2-star Surtlings being pink.
  • Projectiles can be parried, staggering the surtling for some time and allowing you to close the distance for melee attacks, and possibly pushing them into water.
  • While they take damage from water, rain doesn't affect them.
  • They are the only creatures currently present in the Ashlands.
