Dialogue[edit | edit source]

You enter a corridor full of hypnotizing colored mushrooms.
Due to your lack of specialization in mycology you are unable to identify the specimens.
You want to escape, but feel oddly compelled to eat a mushrooms.
Rodents infested by the mushrooms appear out of nowhere!
You give in to the unnatural desire to eat. As you consume mushroom after mushroom, you feel yourself entering into a daze and pass out. As you awake, you feel very odd.
You Heal 25% of your HP, but you also get infected.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Both options are painful - Fungi Beasts can deal some serious damage, and Parasite will inevitably lose you some HP. The choice is mainly determined by how much HP the player has, and whether they can survive the battle and clear the Act.

The combination of Fungi Beast boosting their Icon Strength.png Strength and applying Icon Vulnerable.png Vulnerable on death make it very likely that the player will have to deal with very high incoming damage numbers when taking them out one by one. A safer approach can be to equally lower the HP of each Fungi Beast and then finish them all at once with cards like Cleave, Dagger Spray or Doom and Gloom once they are low enough.

Like all battles, the Fungi Beasts award Gold, card selection, and points in addition to the OddMushroom.png Odd Mushroom, a very useful relic against enemies that utilize Icon Vulnerable.png Vulnerable.

If your HP is low, eating the mushrooms both prevents the Fungi Beasts battle and restores some HP. Parasite will need to be removed later, but it's preferable to death by mouse-mushroom ambush. You may also consider this option if you haveOmamori.png Omamori, Du-VuDoll.png Du-Vu Doll, or DarkstonePeriapt.png Darkstone Periapt.
