Quivering blob

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The quivering blob, b, is a monster that appears in NetHack. It is one of the few amoeboid monsters without a damaging passive attack.

Like all blobs, quivering blob corpses are considered vegan; they provide 100 nutrition, with a 33% chance of conferring poison resistance.

Strategy

Quivering blobs are extremely slow, and cause only minor damage with their infrequent touch attacks; between this and their lack of passive attack, they are generally considered to be no threat and are easily dispatched, making them a fairly low-risk source of poison resistance.

Trivia

  • Perhaps unusually as monsters go, there are no special cases in the source code with respect to quivering blobs; all the information about them is given by their status as a blob, and their stats.
