|The undead form of someone who died of starvation, this creature wants the same thing to happen to you!|
Hungry ghosts are the vengeful spirits of adventurers who starved to death, armed with satiation-draining attacks and a tendency to eat any corpses or food they comes across. Although not too strong, they have frustratingly high EV. They are found in the early- to middle-Dungeon.
Tips & Tricks
- Avoid melee combat with hungry ghosts as much as possible. Kite them if you're fast enough, or at least attack them at range as they approach.
- Their hunger effect triggers each time they deal damage in melee. However, if the attacks deals no damage, there is only a 5% chance of it triggering. Characters in heavy armour with high AC and GDR have much less to worry about.
- Dispel Undead and Airstrike take them out quickly, but any spell with high accuracy that affects the undead will work.
- You can summon your own hungry ghosts with the Haunt spell.
Prior to 0.6, they would not eat corpses.
In the tiles version of Stone Soup, hungry ghosts bear a striking resemblance to the gluttonous character Slimer from Ghostbusters.
