A nexus of sentient cancer and disease, borne aloft perhaps by malice alone. Its nature inflicts withering illness on all living beings in its presence.

Useful Info

Ancient zymes are pestilential floating things which inflict sickness by their mere presence. Thankfully, they are not especially durable. They can be found in the Abyss.

Tips & Tricks

  • Characters with rotting resistance are immune to the passive sickness and can largely ignore ancient zymes.
    • For characters that are still susceptible to sickness, boosting your regeneration rate will make the sickness pass more quickly, and you can cure your disease instantly with a potion of curing in a pinch. Of course, it's best to wait until after you've killed the zyme to use either method.

History

Ancient zymes were added in 0.12.
