It has been centuries since outsiders were last allowed access to the cavernous libraries of the formicids, but their emissaries are still seen from time to time - surveying other lands for resources or scientific discoveries that might aid the colony.

This one's study of the magical fibres excreted by orb spiders has already led to an alchemical breakthrough, allowing them to shape fulminant prisms such that their explosions are directed at enemies alone. Alas, their enthusiasm to conduct a field test bodes poorly for your health.

Useful Info

Xak'krixis is a unique formicid who has a dangerous set of spells and spawns with a venom-branded two-handed weapon and a shield. Also, Xak'krixis can dig walls while pursuing the player or running away.
