A large slimy worm, adept at swimming through the muck of this foul swamp.

“The fool, as I think, at the chasm’s brink,
Prone by the swamp or the marsh’s side,
Did, even as I, in the end rejoice,
Since the voice of death must be His true voice.”
-Arthur Edward Waite, “At The End of Things”. 1906.

Useful Info

Swamp worms are quick-moving, amphibious predators that can drag their enemies toward them. Their melee bite is nasty enough to be a threat to lightly-armored characters. They are common pests in the Swamp, and appear in a handful of other water-themed vaults.

Tips & Tricks

History

  • Prior to 0.22, they could not use Harpoon Shot, but would submerge in water, rendering them invisible unless you were right next to them.
  • Prior to 0.18, they were unable to leave the water and follow you. They could also submerge again if you walked away from them.
