Frenzy is a status effect which causes monsters to attack anything in sight, friend or foe. When applied to natural creatures, frenzy also applies the berserk status effect. When a source of frenzy is used against the player (typically by a needle of frenzy), only the normal berserk effect is applied.

Sources of Frenzy

Frenzy can be afflicted by:

  • Discord: A level 8 Hexes spell which attempts to frenzy all monsters in sight.
  • Needle of frenzy: Blowgun ammunition which can apply the frenzy effect to vulnerable monster upon hit (causes the player to berserk instead).

History

Frenzy used to only work against natural creatures, but was expanded in 0.13. The berserking effect of frenzy is limited to natural creatures, however.
