Tactics[edit | edit source]

The truly difficult part in fighting the harpies is a combination of the terrain and their Luring Song ability. One harpy will always hang back to preform the song, forcing your party to constantly try resisting the alluring singing which will waste their turn and leave them open for attack by the other harpies. With much of the cove considered Difficult Terrain, any attempts to approach them will also be greatly slowed. Their fly ability makes it easy for them to ignore distance and terrain, with them focusing on those who are being Lured so they can multiattack them.

It is best to use ranged attacks and spell on the singing harpy to try breaking her Concentration in singing. With that freedom given, it is wise to fight back aggressively before another harpy begins singing again.

Buffing the Party with Bless before talking with Mirkon to trigger the fight will give you a better chance to resist the song. Likewise, using Gnome, Elf or Half-Elf characters who have Advantage on the saves helps a lot. Utilising the High Ground to the left and right of where Mirkon starts can be important for some party setups.
