The Swine Skiver is a Swine/Creature enemy in Darkest Dungeon II.

Description[ | ]

A hideous mutation of man and beast, the Swine Skiver stands upright on two hooves with a quiver of javelins strapped to his back. The Skiver cripples his prey with a hail of javelins or by pinning them down with a well placed spear.

The Skiver can cause major disruptions and HP damage to the hero party with his signature abilities: Cripple Them and Spit To Roast. Spit To Roast launches a spear at a front-line hero, shoving them to the back of the party and stunning them. With Cripple Them, the Skiver pelts the heroes with a rain of javelins, dealing Blight, Stress, and Negative Tokens. When forced to the front of the party, the Skiver is forced to retreat, making pull abilities a decent strategy to slow him down. His relatively small HP Pool and lack of Deathblow Resist makes the Skiver a quick kill, as long as you can counter his innate Dodge Tokens.
