|| This undead spirit appears as a cloud of black mist surrounding an insubstantial skeletal form. Its eyes burn bright with unholy malevolence and hunger for life essence, on which it feeds.
“God, though this life is but a wraith,
Although we know not what we use,
Although we grope with little faith,
Give me the heart to fight—and lose.”
-Louis Untermeyer, “Prayer”. 1919.
Wraiths are evil, incorporeal undead monsters. Like most undead they resist poison and cold, and their melee attacks drain your vigor, inducing the slow status effect unless you have at least one rank of negative energy resistance. Although potentially dangerous in a crowd, on their own they are fairly nonthreatening. They can be found in the middle-floors of the Dungeon, as well as in the Crypt.
Tips & Tricks
- You can summon your own wraiths with the Haunt spell, and Yredelemnul will occasionally gift them.
Prior to 0.13, wraiths would drain your experience with their melee attacks. This change accompanied the 0.13 overhaul to draining effects.
