Description Edit

Swamp Wisps are tiny, aggressive mobs found in Submerged Swamps. It is suggested that they spawn when a Swamp Gas Vent ignites, but this is not confirmed. It is unknown how they attack the player.

When a Swamp Wisp spots a player, it will rapidly fly at them, inflicting half a heart of damage every half a second it remains in contact. They can be killed, despite having a simple 2D model.

If the name is to be taken literally, Swamp Wisps may not be insects at all, and may instead be based on Will-o'-the-Wisps. If this is true, there is irony; Swamp Wisps are not immune to fire or lava. This also provides an answer on how they attack the player, however; if Swamp Wisps are made of fire, they would burn the player on contact.

Those adept enough at melee combat can kill one, or those with a deadshot can eliminate one from afar with a ranged weapon. Armour with the Thorns enchantment (or similar from a mod) will kill the Swamp Wisp swiftly.
