Useful Info

Giant mites are poisonous clinging vermin found on Dungeon:2 and lower. They're only slightly more dangerous than rats and other early threats.

Tips & Tricks

  • Although weak, a giant mite's poison can be enough to finish off a new character who hasn't found any potions of curing yet. Fragile or weakened characters should be cautious when engaging them in melee.
