A bloated ant, covered in thick chitinous armour and possessing a strong poison. It is the sovereign of the colony and, when not disturbed, is constantly laying eggs. Once capable of flight, it has long since shed its wings; only rudimentary stubs remain.

Useful Info

Queen ants are the massive insect leaders of ant nest vaults. Although they pack a dangerous poisonous sting, they prefer to let their hordes of worker ants and soldier ants handle you. They only appear in their ant nest vaults, which can generate throughout the middle-Dungeon as well as in some branches. If you see one under other circumstances, it's likely a shapeshifter.

Tips & Tricks

  • Like most insects, queen ants are vulnerable to poison.
  • Poisonous, mephitic and damaging clouds from the wand of clouds will cause significant damage to the entire nest.
  • The queen herself should pose little difficulty—although it is advisable to ensure that you have curing potions to fight her, because her poisonous attacks can be incredibly potent.

History

  • Prior to 0.17, queen ants moved slowly.
