Mantids
Mantid.PNG
The mantid is a variation of the garden insect "mantis." These terrifying creatures are rarely seen by adventurers in the Middle Lands; those that have been seen were locked within the depths of the void, drawn out using Key ItemVoidstones.

However, in the East Ulbuka Territory, mantids still roam the forests along with myriad other deadly vermin.
