Crypt Worm

Crypt Worm is a large, maggot-like Insectoid found in various caves and tombs throughout Egypt (Act II). They can resist some damage, and have powerful attacks, especially their melee variants. But they are very slow, and for ranged fighters and spellcasters they are easy to outrun.

  • Defiler, Devourer and Fleshgnawer. Large, blueish-gray crypt worms. Despite their different names they look all the same and have both a medium-ranged, non-elemental spit attack and a powerful melee attack.
