Description[edit | edit source]

Mantid Nymphs are the Mesmers of the Mantid species, found in the Charr Homelands. They are possessive of a unique "self-resurrection" ability, that sometimes allows them to get up again after seemingly dying, mirroring some species of real-world insects. The ability is quite limited, however, so the Nymphs can be killed once and for all without too much trouble.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Mantids in Eye of the North have the innate ability to randomly come back to life after dying. This is not a bug, according to Andrew McLeod, Arenanet's creature designer, and is "intended to make them feel more like big insects- you stomp on them, but they still get up and crawl around". Frozen Soil will not prevent this, and Mantis revived in such a manner will not offer points towards your title tracks. However, the second death of such a creature will still leave an expoitable corpse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Nymph" is the scientific term used to define an invertebrate in the immature stage of development.
