Long deceased miners, cursed to roam the hollows of drifts and mines. Some of them humble and diligent in life, others greedy and ungrateful until death and beyond. They are ghost-like creatures with devious attacks and tend to call for the aid of other ghosts when in distress.
These are the only creatures known to have an area spell that deals different damage depending on the target's distance from the center of the attack, its Energy Ball attack. The target at the center of the spell always receives 500 base damage, those right adjacent to the target receive 225% of that (1125 base damage) and those at the edge of the spell receive 337,5% damage (1687).
Melee (0-350+), Life Drain on target (300-400), Energy Beam (300-400), Holy Berserk (?), Energy Ball on target (500, 1125 or 1687, depending on the distance from the center of the attack), Holy Missile (500-600, also chains to multiple players if they are within ~4 sqm) on its target whenever Prospector receives any damage (Parry-like, ~50% chance to trigger).
