White Worms Writhed in the Bellies of the Dead is a Chanter ability in Pillars of Eternity.

Causes a nearby downed enemy to explode, expelling three white grubs and Crushing nearby enemies.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

The 2.0m Radius is for the explosions, and is centered around the bodies. Only bodies of enemies that died during the current combat are eligible, though they will explode for each cast of the invocation.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This invocation only works when there are corpses on the ground.
  • If the players wants to use this invocation more frequently it's best to deactivate the "Gib" option in the game menu - because gibbed enemies will leave no corpses.
  • Several enemy types will leave no corpses, for example spirits and oozes.
  • Every corpse in the area of effect will explode and deal its own area of effect crush damage. This makes White Worms extremely powerful once the player piles up a good amount of corpses at a certain spot - for example a doorway.
  • Corpses that exploded will not get consumed, they can be reused over and over again.
  • Corpses will get removed if the player leaves the map or reloads the game. Only the loot will remain (if there was any in the first place).
