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.
