    Mollusks is a faction that initially starts hostile to the player character. The faction members consist of slugs, snails, and other creatures that are similar to mollusks in real life. They existed during the time of the sultanate, and thus can be eliminated using Obliterate Faction.

    Slog of the Cloaca is one of two unique legendary mollusks, and it is the only one that can teach the player character, if they are a mutant, the Cloaca Surprise. Consuming this recipe will transform the consumer into a mollusk of the same body plan, except with hands. This will grant them +300 mollusk reputation.

    Combat Overview

    Mollusks can be split into roughly three combat niches: slugs, leeches, and snails. Slugs can trail slime (or other liquids) around while they travel, and can either attack with elemental weapons or status conditions. Leeches steal ♥HP from their victims by bonding with them, and snails have Carapaces that protect them from harm. The salt kraken stands out, being docile and having only raw strength to attack. All mollusks have cudgel-based natural weapons except leeches, whose bites use the axe skills.


    Mollusk name schemes are exactly the same as those of worms. The only key difference between the two are mollusks' sacred liquid, which is slime. Despite their similarities, mollusks and worms despise each other and will attack the other when noticed.
