Useful Info

Entropy weavers are potentially devastating humanoid casters, capable of instantly inflicting massive amounts of corrosion, rendering a character extremely weak and vulnerable. They can be found in the Spider's Nest, the Vaults, and the Depths, usually accompanied by several spiders.

Tips & Tricks

  • The best way to counter the immediate and possibly devastating effect of Entropic Weave is to fight entropic weavers separately from other monsters. Stairs are your friends here.
  • There is a small possibility of an early encounter with entropic weavers in the Lair. Depending on your character, it may be a wise decision to skip a floor like this and come back when you are ready to take on them.

History

  • Before 0.18, entropy weavers took several turns to inflict corrosion on the player, instead of casting Entropic Weave.
  • Entropy weavers were added in 0.17.
