|A nexus of sentient cancer and disease, borne aloft perhaps by malice alone. Its nature inflicts withering illness on all living beings in its presence.|
Ancient zymes are pestilential floating things which inflict sickness by their mere presence. Thankfully, they are not especially durable. They can be found in the Abyss.
Tips & Tricks
- Undead and nonliving characters are immune to the passive sickness and can largely ignore ancient zymes. For everyone else, a potion of cancellation or Elyvilon's Purification ability will remove the status if necessary.
- Prior to 0.28, ancient zymes could see invisible.
- Sickness was made more difficult to deal with in 0.27.
- Ancient zymes were added in 0.12.
