|A cold and hollow apparition of the drowned dead, chained by some lingering attachment to the depths in which it perished. They clamour around the living, sharing the last moments of their watery fate with whatever their pale form touches.|
Drowned souls are fragile summoned undead creatures which seek out the living and attempt to drown them, inflicting modest asphyxiation damage and destroying themselves in the process. They normally only appear when summoned by merfolk avatars.
Tips & Tricks
- The undead, grey draconians, and gargoyles have little to fear from them, being immune to asphyxiation damage.
- Don't waste time targeting them; the avatar will simply summon more of them, likely faster than you can kill them off. Do what you can to kill the avatar, which instantly banishes them all.
- Merfolk avatars usually flee into deep water, making melee a poor option. Use ranged weapons, Bolt spells, or any other tools at your disposal to hit the summoner in spite of the wall of intervening summons.
