Useful Info

Wretched stars are the chaos-spewing embodiments of Lugonu's realm, inflicting temporary (transient) bad mutations on everything nearby. These mutations will go away on their own after you have killed a few monsters, though monsters in the Abyss, where they'll most likely be found, don't count. They also occasionally blast you with non-elemental Conjurations. In addition to the Abyss, they can be found in Lehudib's Moon Base.

Tips & Tricks

  • Unlike Malmutate, Corrupting Pulse doesn't require a line of sight. It affects all nearby opponents, so you cannot hide from the spell behind allies or other monsters.
  • The waves of bad mutations affect your allies too, reducing their speed, AC, and damage output.
  • Undead will suffer temporary stat drain instead of mutations, with a coinflip chance of nothing happening. They should hence be careful of stat zero.
