Family : Neopteron

The ant-like Altaroth are harvesters that gather various natural resources, such as berries or mushrooms, into their abdomen. They shatter into pieces when hit by a weapon, but leave a full corpse if killed via poison.

Shot : Altaroth will launch a blob of liquid at the player, inflicting a temporary defence drop.

Recommended Strategy

Altaroth are weak so simply attacking them will do the trick. Perhaps dodge around once or twice to ensure they miss with their attack if you’re being overly cautious.

Notes :

  • Altaroth break when killed by a weapon, leaving no corpse behind. However you can preserve their corpse by killing them with poison instead.
  • Altaroth leave behind a tear (shiny item) when slain after harvesting resources in their area (signified by their expanded and different coloured abdomen).
  • A gray abdomen occurs when a Altaroth has no resources to harvest and instead feeds off the ground.
  • A gold abdomen has a 12.6% chance of appearing when a Altaroth harvests anything.
