The Halfling is a race in Desktop Dungeons, unlocked after completing the Find the Halflings quest. You must survive the dungeon after finding it. Back in the kingdom, you must pay gold to upgrade their building and be able to use them. Completing a special exclamation mark quest (!) will halve the cost.


Halflings benefit from anything that gives a high max Health, such as the Troll Heart, Alchemist Scroll, Glowing Guardian (convert out before drinking potions), Jehora Jeheyu and The Earthmother.

A superb item for halflings is the Item: Trisword Trisword. Since every potion you drink grants you +2 base attack, this effectively allows them to get both a one-time [i]and[/i] a permanent boost from converting stuff so long as you have the gold to fuel the trisword.

They can be used in combination with most classes, but the ones that work best are Thieves and Priests.

Thief: The halfling can take advantage of the thief's SURVIVOR ability, which gives extra 20% MP for every HP potion quaffed, as well as 20% HP for every MP potion. Find a glyph that improves physical combat (BYSEPS, HALPMEH, CYDSTEPP or GETINDARE), prepare a tri-sword and find items that improve the synergy between magic and physical combat (Witchalock Pendant, Fire Heart, Martyr Wraps).

Priest: The Priest's "Good Drink" allows Halflings to make the most use out of it. Extremely powerful when used against undead. Use the tri-sword or dragon shield. Boost your HP, resistances and damage reduction so that you can take many hits from the enemy.
