“How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!”
-Lewis Carroll, _Alice's Adventures in Wonderland_, 1865.

Useful Info

Crocodiles are large lizards that bite hard and have enough HP to take a few hits. Although rarely a major threat, don't underestimate them if you're playing a fragile character. They are usually found in the Lair, and certain Sewer maps may also contain one.

Tips & Tricks

  • Certain cold-based attacks may slow them, giving mages and light armour users time to soften them up from afar before getting in melee.
  • Just because you can handle a crocodile doesn't mean you can take on an alligator. Those Swamp inhabitants are much deadlier.
