A royal ant returned to unlife through strange, probably horrifying means. It binds the souls of its allies when slain, allowing them to fight on after death as simulacra.

Useful Info

Pharaoh ants are undead insects that roam the Spider's Nest. Upon death, they cast Bind Souls on all living creatures within line of sight.

Tips & Tricks

  • The best way to deal with pharaoh ants is to kill them last. But they aren't non-threats outside of Bind Souls, with a fairly powerful draining melee attack.
