An undead figure preserved by the brackish waters of a bog. Though it has been reanimated by some unknown magic, this magic is not enough to prevent its decaying.

Useful Info

Bog bodies are amphibious undead found in the Swamp with a cold touch-based attack that deals an additional 6-17 cold damage, as well as a few spells. They can swim, but slowly.

Spells

Spell set I
Slot1 Bolt of Cold (3d14) Wizard flag
Slot2 Slow Wizard flag

Variant Bog Body

You may encounter several decayed bog bodies while exploring the waterlogged version of the Ossuary. As these versions are encountered much earlier in the game, they have significantly less durability and can only blast you with Throw Frost.

An undead figure preserved by the brackish waters of a bog. This one seems to have decayed quite a bit, and looks weak.

Tips & Tricks

  • Bolt of Cold can create freezing clouds if you are over shallow/deep water.
  • Followers of Fedhas Madash can simply pray to instantly destroy them, granting piety (but no experience).
  • The extra cold damage is unlikely to trigger if you even have a modicum of AC, given the attack's low base damage (4).

History

Prior to 0.15, bog bodies would randomly start rotting.

Bog bodies were added in 0.11, replacing bog mummies.
