Termites are insect mobs that can spawn occasionally when a player breaks Rotten Weedwood Bark or a Pot of Chance, as well as from some spawners in Cragrock Towers and the Wight Fortress.

Description Edit

Termites appear as insects slightly larger than silverfish, with curved abdomens and animated mandibles. They crawl around and melee attack players, exactly like a normal Silverfish. Due to the way they spawn, they can become a nuisance, and a large swarm of them can be deadly.

Termites can be killed in one hit using a rare loot weapon, the Critter Cruncher.

Strategy Edit

Termites work very similarly to vanilla Silverfish; individually they are rather easy to kill, but in swarms can be very powerful. Thankfully, finding them in swarms is quite uncommon, either because it requires a spawner or requires someone to break one too many pieces of rotten weedwood bark. Deal with them casually whenever you come to face with one and they will not be a problem.
