Useful Info

Mummies are the preserved corpses of the dead, raised by Necromancy for various reasons. They have a decent attack which low-level characters should watch out for, but they move slowly and have meager durability. They can be found in the Ossuary, the Tomb, and certain undead-themed vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Mummies are vulnerable to fire and holy wrath weapons.
  • Mummies are slow enough that you can walk them upstairs and outrun them, leaving them on a cleared level. Be aware that you may encounter them again if you head back up to retrieve items from your stash (though you can just run away from them again).


Prior to 0.17, basic mummies had a death curse that could randomly curse one item in the player's inventory when killed. Prior to 0.15, allowing allied or enslaved creatures to kill mummies would spare you from the death curse.
