Once beautiful beyond comprehension, the moor wight before you is now as disgusting as it was once charming. The wight has a slender, decaying body hidden by tattered and fading robes. Plainly written across the moor wight's face is an expression of eternal anguish and pain, silently speaking of the horrofic events which unfolded during its life to bring it to this sad state.

Greater moor wights are immune to cold elemental damage.

Other information

Summoning Powers

Similar to their lesser brethren, greater moor wights have even more potent abilities to conjure into existence other undead beings.

In areas with muddy wetland terrain, these wights are capable of summoning greater fetid corpses out of the mire:

A greater moor wight raises one decaying arm in a series of mystical gestures, chanting an almost inaudible stream of prayers.
A greater fetid corpse emerges from the stinking mire, moaning evilly!

If the terrain is too hard and dry to allow this trick, they may instead call upon their less threatening ally, the luminous spectre:

A greater moor wight raises one decaying arm in a series of mystical gestures, chanting an almost inaudible stream of prayers.
A cold mist seeps up out of the ground, slowly dissipating to reveal a luminous spectre.

Interaction with corpses

A greater moor wight is not going to help rescue you when dead. In fact, it will further mangle your body:

A greater moor wight rakes ribbons of flesh from your face.

And move your corpse about wherever it pleases:

A greater moor wight heads out, dragging your battered body behind it!
