Perfect

A plated knollworm is a low-level creature and member of the worms faction often found in low-level underground areas. They possess a fairly high AV (relative to their level), and use their \crab-crushing beak along with their Cleave skill to lower the AV of their opponents by inflicting the cleaved status effect (or cracked, if the target is a player character).

They (as well as their non-plated counterparts) have a 100% chance of dropping a Knollworm corpse.pngknollworm corpse upon death, a particularly useful property given that this corpse may be a component of the cure for Fungal Infections given in the Corpus choliys.pngCorpus Choliys.

Differences from Knollworms

plated knollworms are very similar to Knollworm.pngknollworms, but with a higher AV (♦6 rather than ♦3) which makes them much harder to kill. This higher durability also makes plated knollworms more dangerous offensively, as it gives them more time to capitalize on the AV penalties they impose on their targets.

Additionally, plated knollworms have a higher Toughness than standard knollworms, are 1 level higher, and grant slightly more experience when killed.
