|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.|
Tips & Tricks
- Characters with rotting resistance are immune to the passive sickness and can largely ignore ancient zymes.
- A ring of sustain abilities will keep your stats intact if you decide to wait out the sickness (though the stat losses from a single bout of sickness will likely be negligible). Deep dwarf characters should be particularly cautious around ancient zymes.
