“The fool, as I think, at the chasm’s brink,
Prone by the swamp or the marsh’s side,
Did, even as I, in the end rejoice,
Since the voice of death must be His true voice.”
-Arthur Edward Waite, “At The End of Things”. 1906.

Tips & Tricks

History

In 0.22, they will gain a Harpoon Shot ability, which can pull the player into melee with them, similar to Force Lance but reversed. They will also lose their submerging ability.

Prior to 0.18, they were unable to leave the water and follow you. They could also submerge again if you walked away from them.
