Useful Info

Wretched stars are the chaos-spewing embodiments of Lugonu's realm, inflicting temporary (transient) bad mutations on everything within their line of sight. These mutations will go away on their own after you have killed a few monsters, but can leave you heavily handicapped in the meantime. They also occasionally blast you with non-elemental Conjurations. They can be found in the Abyss and in Lehudib's Moon Base wizlab.

Tips & Tricks

  • 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.


  • Prior to 0.19, wretched stars' Corrupting Pulse mutated everyone in LOS, even their allies.
  • Wretched stars were added in 0.12.
