Assassin vine is a creature in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Description[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Though they may appear indistinguishable from a normal vine, assassin vines are anything but. They are primordial creatures, beasts that have existed in Eora for as long as kith - or longer - and are very strange indeed.

In fact a collection of plant vines subsisting in a tightly interwoven colony, assassin vines demonstrate both an unusual and alarming degree of sentience. For example, they have been known to lie in wait for their prey in the shadows of low-lying plants. When their target passes by, the assassin vine whips out from its hiding place, knocks its prey to the ground, constricts them, and drags them back to its lair for an agonizingly slow death by crushing and the application of certain liquefying enzymes.

Assassin vines are not only formidable hunters - they are challenging opponents in combat, too. They prefer to crush their adversaries to death, but if their foe is out of reach, will settle for tearing thorns off their own body and hurling them at their opponent.

What lies at the heart of an assassin vine nest is, as yet, a mystery. None who have been so foolhardy as to attempt to find out have returned alive, let alone in one piece.
