|Attack1|| 9 (spore: sleep)
|A surprisingly ambulatory mushroom. It wafts its spores over prey to send them into a deep sleep, making it simple for the fungus to kill and devour them. It can take months for its mycelia to fully infiltrate and digest victims.|
Sleepcaps are early Dungeon monsters, appearing on D:4-8. Their melee attacks have a 50% chance to put the opponent to sleep if any damage is dealt. Unbreathing monsters and players are immune to sleep-inducing spores.
Tips & Tricks
- In addition to being a monster with rPois and rN+++, the sleep is threatening to any character vulnerable to it. Sleep prevents you from moving, reduces your EV to 0, and allows monsters to stab you.
- If you are immune to sleep (Undead, Gargoyle, Djinni, have clarity, or during berserk) or are unbreathing (Ice Form), then you have much less to fear.
- Sleepcaps were added in 0.30.
