The auror, A, is an angelic being in Slash'EM Extended. They are powerful spellcasters, and a lot of them appear in the Death Eater quest.

Strategy

Aurors are nasty opponents thanks to the big variety of spells they can cast, including summon nasties, aggravate and summon insects. On the Death Eater quest they travel in packs, allowing them to quickly fill the level with summoned monsters, so the player should try to take them out quickly. Their high magic resistance means that using melee or ranged weapons is advised; however, the player needs a +1 or higher enchanted weapon to hit them. Taming an auror allows them to use some of their spells against other monsters, but they lack a melee/weapon attack, making a pet auror a bit less useful.
