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

  • The duration of sickness depends on how long the zyme remains in LOS, so destroying it quickly will make sickness less of an issue.
  • Undead and nonliving characters are immune to the passive sickness and can largely ignore ancient zymes. For everyone else, a potion of cancellation or Elyvilon's Purification ability will remove the status if necessary.
