Goldleeches are found in the oceans and in water next to swamps. If a creature comes within a one- tile range of the leech, they will have the leech stuck to their bodies on the next turn and the leech will inflict daily damage until it is removed.
Goldleeches are bright yellow with a purple mouth. They can move around one tile per turn.
Removing a goldleech is the same as curing bleeding. The leeched creature has to be within a one- tile range of another creature who will remove the goldleech. Doing this takes one action point, but the goldleech becomes a food point.
If a creature stands near the goldleech, it is possible to "harvest" the goldleech without getting any damage. It requires at least one Strength and one action point.
Even after removing a goldleech, the creature will sometimes still receive damage until it passes away. Some Niche-playing YouTubers like to call it "The Leech Disease" for story purposes.
- Goldleeches used to simply be called leeches.
- Prior to the latest update preview, goldleeches were immobile unless they were on the Jungle or Killer islands.
