Once a member of the Mantis tribe, now cast out and driven mad by infection.
Belonging to a tribe, or not belonging. I don't really understand what the difference is, or how it works. I have no tribe of my own.
Behaviour and Tactics
- Slash: It faces the direction of the Knight and performs a lunge and slash with a long range.
- Lunge: It jumps a short height, then performs a diagonal slash downwards in the direction of the Knight, followed by a forward lunge.
- Upward Swipe: If the Knight is directly above it, it sometimes performs a quick upward swipe.
They do not chase or target the Knight if they are airborne.
On encounter, bait out its long forward lunge, and attack it from behind before. The Desolate Dive/Descending Dark Spell is very effective against this enemy. Mantis Traitors have a much faster recovery time on their attacks than most enemies, and a short distance should be maintained.
Dream Nail Dialogue
They are very commonly found within the Queen's Gardens, usually defeating them is necessary to unlock a door or proceed, like in the Traitor Lord fight. Also found within the Colosseum of Fools, at the 9th and 17th waves of the Trial of the Fool.
- Prior to the Lifeblood update, Mantis Traitors dropped 21 upon death. This most likely had changed as a result of a bug.
- This glitch has been fixed in the 220.127.116.1192 PC beta update.
- Prior to the release of Godmaster, the Dream Nail could not be used on Mantis Traitors.
- Mantis Traitors have the same generic Dream Nail dialogue as unintelligent enemies such as Booflies and Garpedes. It is not known if this is intentional.
- This has been fixed in the 18.104.22.16892 PC beta update. Mantis Traitors now have the same Dream Nail dialogue as Traitor Lord.
