Useful Info

Azure jellies are some of the most dangerous jellies in the game, moving quickly and hitting very hard (they can deal 30-88 cold damage per turn on top of their physical damage). Although they lack the ability to corrode your equipment with acid like most jellies, their raw damage output makes them one of the most likely jellies to kill unprepared characters. They can be found in the Slime Pits or around Jiyva altars.

Tips & Tricks

  • Even without acid, azure jellies can consume doors or items on the ground to recover. Fortunately their usual habitat doesn't have much loot lying around to begin with.
  • High AC and rC++ or better negates most of their ability to harm you. If you're lacking either or both, going into melee with them is going to hurt. Take them out at range, preferably with fire damage.
  • Azure jellies are one of the possible creatures that can appear after the Royal Jelly takes damage. If you lack cold resistance, these should absolutely be your highest priority... unless you also lack acid resistance, in which case you probably shouldn't be there at all.
