Useful Info

Vampire bats resemble standard bats, but are actually weak vampires in disguise; their bites restore their HP, and they are slightly more durable than bats. They often come with a pack of bat allies as well, but these are no more dangerous than they were when you were a level 1 character. You can find vampire bats in the middle-Dungeon or in certain vaults of the Lair.

Tips & Tricks

  • In spite of the name and flavour text, they cannot transform into actual vampires.
  • They have the usual assortment of undead strengths and weaknesses, but they're generally so weak that this doesn't matter.
