Useful Info

Death cobs are undead monsters found throughout the Realm of Zot. Their fast attacks deal decent damage and quickly drain your speed.

Tips & Tricks

  • Avoid engaging them while near other enemies. You will be promptly slowed for the whole fight. That being said, running is quite difficult.
  • Quaffing a potion of haste or speeding up otherwise will nullify the slow effect for the whole fight. You will not be able to move faster while fighting them though.


In 0.18, they stopped draining satiation but drain speed again.

Death cobs received buffs to HP and attack in 0.17. Their attacks also started draining satiation.
