Rancid Remains Battle Strategy

Use Blunt Weapons

Just like the Skeletons, Rancid Remains are also naturally weak to blunt weapons, so using weapons like the Stagbreaker, Bronze Mace, or even the Torch is really effective against them.

Bring Poison Resistance Mead

The attacks of the Rancid Remains can inflict poison on you, so it is recommended that you have some Poison resistance mead on you incase you get hit from their attacks.

    • The latest update devalued Fish. Have to fix that ASAP. I liked to fish and wanted to see them do something with catching bigger fish so its more exciting, and another larger speicies or make 1, 2 and more star sizes? Same thing with Hunting deer. Biggest is 2 star, why not up to 4 star or add elk?
