| A vile interdimensional predator that feeds on the life force of living beings. The few who have seen one and lived recall that it resembles an enormous, spiny moth.
“Always in focus
Ghost moths are speedy, invisible monsters with an MP-draining gaze and a stat-draining, strongly poisonous bite. As with an eye of draining, a ghost moth's stare causes you to irresistibly lose 5-17 MP. If you cannot see invisible, you will instead "feel you are being watched by something" (you lose the MP either way). They can be found in the Spider's Nest (particularly in Spider:4), the Realm of Zot, and on spider floors in Ziggurats.
Tips & Tricks
- Ghost moths lack see invisible. If you are invisible yourself, ghost moths can't drain your MP.
- Ghost moths are an excellent reason to always have the see invisible intrinsic available. If you receive the message "You feel you are being watched by something," activate see invisible immediately. Keep in mind they fly faster than most characters run, so escaping without buffs is not an option. Should you choose to engage, poison resistance and a ring of sustain attributes will come in handy.
