For a long time it was believed that the Crypt Shambler was a mere myth, and even though today most scholars agree that this undead abomination exists, little else is known about it. A common theory holds that Crypt Shamblers are created from the bodies of lesser necromancers and death cultists who were turned into undead creatures while they were still alive! Although this theory remains unconfirmed, it would help to explain the burning rage that seems to be a common trait of all Crypt Shamblers. Whatever the truth, Crypt Shamblers are dangerous undead that far exceed many other undead in power and ferocity.
Damage Taken From Elements
It will fight until death.
A crypt shambler attacks in melee range.
Paladins: Run while attacking them with any distance attack. Beware not to come too close to these since they can do a high damage in close combat. Experienced paladins are advised to kill them using Divine Missiles or Divine Caldera in the case they come in group. Since they are usually found with Mummies, Bonelords and other Undead, it is recommended to take priority on the Crypt Shamblers since they are strong when in close combat. A good place to hunt these is in Yalahar, Cemetery Quarter.
Mages: Should keep distance from them while attacking with their wand/rod and shooting fire, energy or Ice Damage runes or spells. Don't let them come too close because their attacks can kill a mage easily. Can start hunting these as low as level 15, but are commonly found with mummies (or other undead) so take care when doing so.
