Lurkers are monsters that appear in the Dark Caves. They show up as a small flat green spot on the ground and attack the player when stepped on after a short delay. They can detect the player even through stealth.

Tactics[edit | edit source]
Lurkers have a small delay before attacking as well as before retreating back into the ground. The easiest and safest way to deal with a lurker is to run directly over and past it, then turn around and attack it before its attack animation ends. They only have 3 HP, so they should be nearly guaranteed to die on the first hit. Should your melee weapon be too slow, switching to your fists will allow a fast enough attack. This will only work if you have no equipment lowering your speed stat equipped, as any speed below the base speed will keep you from running faster than the lurker can attack you.
