The Glyphid Grounder was found deep in the core of Hoxxes during the Drilling Deeper campaign. The Glyphid Grounder is a fast, burrowing Glyphid with a signature entrapment attack that can catch even the most careful of dwarves off guard. Once trapped in the ground, Dwarves will take steady damage until freed with the trusty pickaxe of a fellow drawf.
— Miner's Manual Description

Glyphid Grounders are disruptive enemies. They spend most of their time burrowed beneath the surface, using tremors and vibrations to sense approaching dwarves. When a dwarf gets close, the Grounder erupts from terrain with a surprise attack. Dwarves should be wary of soft terrain that seems to "breathe" or areas with unusual tremors, as these might indicate a waiting Grounder!

Combat[]

  • Eruption: The Grounder's primary attack. It bursts from the ground beneath a dwarf, dealing moderate damage and knocking them off balance.
  • Entrapment: After a successful eruption attack, the Grounder attempts to grab a dwarf with its powerful mandibles. If successful, the dwarf is partially buried into the ground, taking continuous damage over time. Only another dwarf can free the entrapped dwarf with a pickaxe.
  • Burrowing: Glyphid Grounders can burrow through most terrain at high speeds. They will often retreat underground after a failed grab attempt or when taking heavy fire. They may also burrow to flank dwarves or surprise them from another direction.
