The Krait are a race of aggressive, semi-intelligent shapeshifters which resemble snakes with arms or wings. They are encountered along the Tarnished Coast.
Known sub-types[edit | edit source]
|Tarnished Coast|| 18-20 (25) Krait Neoss1
- Lower-level Neosses use Metamorphosis to transform into one of the higher-level krait types.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- After a Neoss uses Metamorphosis, the new krait is not linked to the original group (much like torment creatures summoned by Call to the Torment), allowing the party to pull them separately.
- Adult krait have rank 20 in all attributes.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Krait is the common name for snakes of the genus Bungarus, found in India and southeast Asia. (While the real-word plural form of krait is "kraits", the plural used by Guild Wars in-game text is "krait".)
- The names of the various krait are slight variations on words from classical Greek and Latin.

- Devouss ← devovere (L) — "to vow"
- Hypnoss ← hypnos (G) — "sleep"
