Useful Info

Bog bodies are amphibious undead found in the Swamp with a cold touch-based attack that deals an additional 6-17 cold damage, as well as a few spells. They can swim, but slowly. Unlike other ghoul-type monsters, bog bodies don't have rot-inducing melee attacks, but killing them will produce a cloud of miasma.

Spells: Bolt of Cold (3d14), Slow, Corpse Rot

Variant Bog Body

You may encounter several decayed bog bodies while exploring the waterlogged version of the Ossuary. As these versions are encountered much earlier in the game, they have significantly less durability and can only blast you with Throw Frost.

An undead figure preserved by the brackish waters of a bog. This one seems to have decayed quite a bit, and looks weak.

Tips & Tricks

  • Bolt of Cold can create freezing clouds if you are over shallow/deep water.
  • Be careful when killing any corpse-producing monsters with a bog body in sight; their Corpse Rot spell can seriously harm you if you're standing over a corpse at the time.
  • Followers of Fedhas Madash can simply pray to instantly destroy them.


Bog bodies were added in 0.11, replacing bog mummies.
