Rabid wolf

A rabid wolf is a new monster in SLASH'EM. They have slightly more hitpoints than regular wolves, and their bite is poisonous.

Strategy

These are not a huge threat, since they are no faster than a normal player. Take them down with ranged weapons if you lack poison resistance and/or magic cancellation, since their bite does have the potential to cause instadeath. Unlike rabid rats, the corpses of rabid wolves are safe to eat, and in fact provide a decent amount of nutrition.
