Useful Info

Rats are one of the earliest and least powerful opponents in the game. They have average speed and are almost harmless, though some of their later relatives are much more aggressive. They are most common in early levels of the Dungeon and in the Sewers.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can summon your own rats through use of the Summon Small Mammal spell.
  • Although they are weak, rats place surprisingly high on the list of top killers. Don't let them nibble on you while you fight other monsters!
