I believe the proper plural for "wumpus" is "wumpi" since other plurals of -us are -i. --SophiaMakoto (talk) 04:23, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Hmmm. According to wiktionary, the plural is wumpuses, but I don't know as they have a source for that. Elronnd(talk) 04:30, 3 January 2016 (UTC)


The article states:

Pet wumpuses can be ridden while on land, but you will fall off the wumpus when you try to ride over water

This appears to no longer be true in 3.6.0. In wizard mode I'm able to ride a wumpus over water without falling off. Which does seem counteruntuitive if they are sticking to the ceiling. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 04:44, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Walking on water

Wizard mode shows that there seems to be an inconsistency - while pet wumpuses can exist on water, if you polymorph into one and try to cross water you'll fall in. --Bluescreenofdeath (talk) 11:28, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

They walk on the ceiling, not on top of the water. This allows them to cross pools of water. I'm not sure player ceiling-clinging exists. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 01:04, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
