Pindleskin is found in Nihlathak's Temple, reached through the red portal beside Anya in Harrogath. Pindleskin and his minions are always in the narrow temple that leads to the entrance to the Halls of Anguish.
Though his potential drops have been nerfed a bit since his v1.09 heyday, when he could drop any item in the game, Pindleskin is still one of the most popular "item run" monsters in the game, for his easy access and the fact that he can drop from very high treasure classes.
Pindleskin, along with all Defiled Warrior, got a substantially boost to the accuracy and damage of their charge attack in v1.10. This made him very dangerous to any character with less than 1000 hit points, especially when cursed.
- Prior to patch v1.09, Pindleskin was a favorite among characters to find rare and unique items due to easy access from Anya's Portal. Be sure to not activate the Halls of Pain Waypoint.
- Deckard Cain speculates that Pindleskin is the skeleton of the chief of the Bear tribe of Barbarians, who was slain during Rakkis' invasion sometime between 1045 and 1060. This makes Pindleskin one of the few "one-off" Super Uniques to be given a backstory.
