Cave lice are large and tough creatures lurking in caves. They spawn in groups of 5 to 12 members.



Cave lice are rarely aggressive, though initiating an attack on a louse will also get the attention of other nearby lice. Due to their numbers, a group of them can knock a player out very quickly. Lice start to flee at 300 HP, but may return to combat immediately if other lice continue to be attacked.

Use extreme caution when fighting a group of lice. It is recommended to fight them using a horse. They can destroy mine supports in their path, possibly triggering a cave-in.
