Lesser Wormface Notes & Tips

  • Has a Death Blight-inflicting ranged attack, which can be mitigated with the Prince of Death's Pustule or Prince of Death's Cyst talismans and cured using the Order Healing and Law of Regression incantations or Rejuvenating Boluses consumable.
  • The file names for the Wormfaces are Deracine_Male for the small ones, and Deracine_Female for the large ones. Deracine could come from a French word for uprooting trees, or it could mean “displaced.”
  • It is possible that these are corpses that were buried in Catacombs built around Greattree roots (back when "the roots of the Greattree were" purportedly "linked to those of the Erdtree," see the description for Root Resin), and were in the process of becoming a part of the Erdtree, but then displaced or "uprooted" by Deathroot. This would explain why they inflict Death Blight, and why they drop Sacrificial Twigs, which are rumored to have once been "pruned from the Erdtree."

      These things aren't that hard,provided you take care to avoid their death blight vomit, but good god do they scare the **** out of me.

        Someone really needs to include absorptions and resistances for "basic" enemies (or at least the ones that won't die in 3-4 hits from a standard weapon.) Often, I have to check the boss versions to get a general idea.

          I hate these things, esp in groups . I dye to them more than any other creature in the woods. Rune bears you can make a run for it or scramble to get the upperhand. But these things suck. Instant Deathblight shots all the time. They make a frigging clouds of it. Makes the frog guys seem easy as u can dodge away. But the sounds they make and ability 2 1 shot you, very tanky= my new most hated. Remind if the dragon people in DS3.

            Fire decimates these guys. One Giantsflame to the face stuns and almost one shots the ones in farum azula. I wish the wiki pages had resistance breakdown on normal mobs like there are bosses. I didn't see this listed anywhere.

              im at a point where these guys dont give me too much trouble one on one, but the noises they make cause me to completely avoid them. that chorus of laughter when you're on or near the bridge in altus will never not disturb me

                do the wormface sort of talk to themselves? I'm at writheblood ruins, I can hear something talking in a funny voice, I'm facing north east and right on the edge, I'm not making enough of it out to be able to understand what they are saying, its not the only place I've heard this chattering either.

                  it says here the "weak enemy" that turns into a wormface at mt gelmir is the lesser wormface, but I walked right into that trap, just like I did with that F**king rune bear or "leeser" rune bear or whatever in limgrave. I'm not 100% sure, but sure enough to put my money where my mouth is. there was nothing lesser about what that putrid corpse at mt gelmir turned into, it was a lot bigger than the lesser wormface you see around woodfolk ruins, it was the same size as the boss variant by the minor erdtree in altus plateau. when the putrid corpse turned, it was looming over me. I think its deathblight killed me faster than the lesser variation as well.

                    Most of them in Altus will not attack you unless you invade their personal space. Even the ones hidden along the paths will allow you to walk on by. Farum Azula's are more likely to run you down.

                      I think there's some misinformation here as immunizing Cured Meat only raises immunity. Vitality is the stat that increases resistance to deathblight.

                      • This is the type of enemy that makes me love FromSoftware games. A ghoulish laughing monster laughing its ass off in front of a gravesite of some poor chap he killed. He goes back to the gravesite after buriel, sits down, laughs his ass off while mumbling random nothings.

                          Hard to target with spell because the targ point is so low on them. When they're not standing up you have to get right on top of them to target.

                          • Whoever edits this, I was trying to farm some of the lesser wormfaces to see if they can drop their stick weapon, when they dropped a sacrificial twig. Looking at the drops, it seems no one documented this, but it could be really useful to know.

                              For some reason lightning spear can bring their health down from full all the way to ~1 but is unable to land a killing blow? Has anyone else experienced this?

                                These things seem to be nearly blind, so equipping the Crepus’ Vial talisman works wonders here. It’s not foolproof, but you can avoid quite a lot of aggro by using it.

                                  They need to make the clouds these guys spew a lot more visible than they are. Just lost 200k runes because these obnoxious things shoot clouds of death blight everywhere and it's often pretty hard to see where it even is. Something that kills you that quickly if you're standing in it should be made a lot more visible I think.

                                    Anyone else notice that their cloth wraps look like guardian armor? Anyway, wish you could get their weapon as a greatsword.

                                      These guys are annoying. I mean, say what you want about Basilisks, but they are squishy, have short ranged and don't deal damage outside of their death clouds.

                                      These horrible things are not only extremely annoying due to them constantly making slurping and coughing sounds, but they are also rather tanky, can hit somewhat hard in melee and cover half the area in death worms.

                                        Just got killed by one of these with death blight. Can't get my 220k runes back as they are not at the marked location. PLEASE FIX

                                          Not sure about the Altus variant but the azula ones seem to be wrapped in a tarnished gold wrappings and seem to have what look like medallions tucked along the wraps. It makes you curious their origin

                                            They might be associated with the Man-snakes from the Volcano Manor, since they have similar body structures apart from the worm tentacles and there is a giant wormface close to the path that leads to Volcano Manor, and the region next to Volcano Manor (Altus Plateau) is the region that has most wormfaces. I wonder how they got to Farum Azula though, maybe through the teleporter traps like the one under Raya Lucaria that takes you to Volcano Manor

                                              "Lesser Wormface may not be as large as Wormface itself but they can be found roaming around in groups around Crumbling Farum Azula."

                                                These are some of the scariest enemies in the game. Not hard but just pure nightmare fuel. The noises they make are horrible and if you're ranged they eventually stand upright and run at you at full speed. Awful. 11/10

                                                  These enemies seem to be crying. You can even find one specifically mourning over a grave and it has even placed a flower on top of it which you can pick. Would love to learn the lore behind them.

                                                    The ones in altus that use a hood looks like a reference to the monster from the movie The Village from Shyamalan

                                                      After listening to them for forever, it sounds as though theyre saying "foul tarnished. Stop threatening me" interspersed with coughing and cackling.

                                                        I think those guy's audio is a bit buggy at the moment. You'll seem to hear their coughing at higher volume from way further away than any other enemy in the game, at least for me.

                                                          so there's a wormface...a very large wormface underneath volcano manor on the way to the erdtree. Turn right after spawning into the Road of Iniquity. He's concealed as a random weak pleb looking at a fire. When you kill the pleb, it literally transforms into the wormface boss lol. I ran away but when I went back afterwards to see if it was still there and it def was.
