| An ancient warrior, kept in a state of perpetual undeath by its desire to die with honour in battle.
“Unhappie wight, borne to desastrous end,
Wights are undead monsters armed with powerful weapons and capable of draining you when they land hits in melee. They aren't very durable and only wear robes as armour, but they come in packs of three or four and their draining attacks can quickly diminish characters careless enough to get surrounded. They are found in the early-to-mid Dungeon.
Tips & Tricks
- Unlike most other humanoid monsters you've seen, wights don't shout when they notice you. If you come across a band that's resting, you can lure them away one at a time to fight them in relative safety.
- Fighting them from a distance will negate their ability to drain you, so fast characters should definitely kite them. Even if kiting's not an option, try to soften them up before engaging in melee, and try to engage them one at a time.
- If you have negative energy resistance, use it. It'll decrease both their damage output and their XP drain.
- Their weapons and robes are often branded or ego items, but also have a higher-than-average chance of being cursed (33.33%). Investigate at your own peril.
