Attack Patterns

  • Jumping body press. Distance is about the 'Bug's entire length.
  • Thrusts its needle-like appendage from its head.
  • Charging attack. Breaks most guards.


Their attacks usually consist of a stinger thrust from their mouth and a body rush tackle. With a hard shell and high HP, these guys take a beating. Try hitting them with Poison or Plague to supplement your damage, also melee attack with magic enchanted weapons (like rune sword) works fine. (Note that there is also a Blessed Mace +1 in Valley of Defilement 5-1 if you can't find any magic stone.)

Soulsucker Strategy

If you have the spell Soulsucker, get near one and kill it instantly.
