Snow ant

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A snow ant, a, is the new member of the proverbial Team Ant in SLASH'EM and UnNetHack. It is identical to the fire ant except that its attacks do cold damage instead of fire damage, it conveys cold resistance instead of fire resistance, and it is not infravisible.

Strategy

The techniques for disposing of other ants also apply to the snow ant: make judicious use of Elbereth, attack wands and ranged attacks; try to fight them in a corridor or (preferably) near the up staircase; and don't be afraid to run away or use escape items. Like most instances, their cold attack has a chance to destroy potions; the attack is affected by magic cancellation.
