Warped Scourges are twisted varieties of Dredge Scourges, corrupted by the Darkness. They wield a misshapen purple blade and are first encountered in the Underworld Caves in Chapter 10. These creatures are apparently feared and avoided also by regular Dredge.



Active Ability | Mind Devour[]

The Warped Scourge saps an amount equal to the difference in willpower between the scourge and the target, damaging Willpower.png and stealing Strength.png.
For example, if a 9 Willpower.png Warped Scourge targeted a 4 Willpower.png Hero, the hero would be take - 5 Willpower.png and - 5 Strength.png while the Scourge gained +5 Strength.png.
This ability is one of the most powerful available to warped enemies.

Passive Ability | Depraved[]

The Warped Dredge explodes upon death and disappears. The explosion causes one Willpower.png damage to all adjacent enemies and leaves a surface of burned purple ashes equal to the unit's size, that does 1 Willpower.png damage to any unit walking over it.

Tips & Trivia[]

  • Mind Devour can be catastrophic when applied to low Willpower Heroes, as it deals more damage to them. There is only one way to do survive: kill the Warped Scourge as fast as possible!
  • Warped Scourges and Warped Stoneguards are the only twisted units encountered in The Banner Saga 2.
