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.
  • Death cobs have relatively low magic resistance, which makes them good targets for hexes.
  • Formicids have permanent stasis, which makes them immune to speed draining attacks.

History

  • 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.
