Harpies and Harpy Hags are level 2 creatures of Dungeon. They are recruited from the Harpy Loft.

"Harpies - half-women/half-vulture in appearance - have a swooping attack that returns them to the hex they started from. Harpy hags attack with such violence their attacks cannot be countered." RoE manual

Even though it's barely unnoticeable, they both have sharp teeth and fangs, as seen in the official renders and one of the Restoration of Erathia campaigns.

Special ability[edit]

Both harpies and harpy hags have a special ability to strike and return, which means that they fly next to their target, attack and return to their original hex. Harpies also receive retaliation before returning to the original hex, but Harpy Hags receive no enemy retaliation from their attack.

Dendroids have a special ability of binding, which works in an exceptional way to harpies when dendroids retaliate. After the retaliation, harpies return to their original hex as usual, and are bound after the return. This enables the dendroid stack to move or die without lapsing the entanglement causing the harpies to be bound down forever if not attacked or dispelled.

Heroes with a specialty[edit]

  • Lorelei Lorelei the Overlord has harpies as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any harpies or harpy hags for each level attained after 2nd level and gives them a speed bonus of 1.

Horn of the Abyss[edit]

Harpies and Harpy Hags can choose not to return to the original hex. This is useful for preventing shooters from shooting.
