An incorporeal skeletal form surrounded by a cloud of freezing air, likely the remains of some unfortunate adventurer. It now floats slowly through the dungeon, seeking to share its fate with others.

Useful Info

Freezing wraiths are insubstantial undead spirits, slowly pursuing you and dealing cold damage (8-23) in melee. Although they hit fairly hard, they are easy to escape from or kite, so long as you have room to flee. They appear in the Ice Cave, the middle-Dungeon, and Cocytus.

Tips & Tricks

  • They are vulnerable to fire, along with the usual undead solutions (Dispel Undead and holy wrath).
  • Without cold resistance, their melee attacks can be very hazardous, particularly for low-level characters exploring the Ice Caves and encountering several of them at once. Don't be afraid to quaff a potion of resistance if you find them early on.
  • You can summon your own freezing wraiths with the Haunt spell.
