|A tough ant with a disproportionately large head, strong mandibles, and a vicious sting capable of injecting painful venom. It is a soldier, and thus tasked with protecting the colony from invaders.|
A soldier ant is a hardier version of the worker ant, with the same strengths and vulnerabilities, except that the soldier ant is tougher and of average speed.
Tips and tricks
- Poison works exceptionally well against them. Venomous weapons and Poison Magic will kill them in short order, and Mephitic Cloud will turn them against each other.
- Their magic resistance is low, so you can confuse and paralyse them without too much trouble.
- As long as you have poison resistance, facing them shouldn't be too much trouble, though they can still manage to mangle lightly armored spellcasters who let them get into close quarters.
- Soldier ants were removed in 0.27.
