| A brightly coloured snake, very comfortable in the water. It has a highly potent venomous bite.
“The latter lived in the country, and before his house there was an oak, in which there was a lair of snakes. His servants killed the snakes, but Melampus gathered wood and burnt the reptiles, and reared the young ones. And when the young were full grown, they stood beside him at each of his shoulders as he slept, and they purged his ears with their tongues. He started up in a great fright, but understood the voices of the birds flying overhead, and from what he learned from them he foretold to men what should come to pass.”
Sea snakes are found in the Shoals, usually lying in ambush in the water. They're a significant upgrade from the plain old snake; they're quick, beefy, and carry a hefty poisonous bite that is only weakened by poison resistance.
Tips & Tricks
- Sea snakes will flee back into the ocean when moderately injured, making it hard to finish them off. Use ranged attacks or poison unless you like getting assaulted by the same snake every so often.
- Poison resistance reduces their damage output tremendously.
