Pond Skaters are alien-looking insects that are found skating along the surface of Submerged Swamp rivers.
They may not seem like much, but in the water, they are far faster than the player. Pond Skaters deal only one heart of damage per hit, but can hit twice a second and inflict 10 seconds of Poison and Nausea, a more potent dose that what most mobs in the Erebus deliver.
It is recommended to either avoid them or slaughter them with ranged weaponry.
- Pond Skaters cannot see outside of water. If they are placed on land, they will not be able to see nearby players as a result of their coding. If you hit one, however, well...
- Pond Skaters were made solely by Dave (Vadis365).
- Pond Skaters are unable to leave the water, as they cannot jump or climb. If spawned on land using a Spawn Egg or Console Commands, they will skate along the ground at the same speed they skate in water.
