Frost Wurm.jpg

Distant cousins to the sand, chaos, and desert wurms, the great ice wurms are particularly unusual members of the species, making their home in the frigid marches of the Shiverpeaks rather than the warm territories their brethren favor. A thick layer of blubber beneath their tough skin helps insulate them from the cold. These wurms are significantly stronger and more deadly than their southern counterparts, able to burrow through upper layers of stone, as well as dirt or sand. Such abilities, of course, make them much more formidable opponents.

The Guild Wars Eye of the North Manuscript

Wurms are giant worm-like creatures that burrow through the ground. Some wurms are able to use extended ranged "siege" attacks. They are generally larger, more aggressive versions of worms. The larvae state even resembles worms.

  • Wurms all have increased armor, immunity to knock down, and most have an equal amount of armor against all damage types, despite being Warriors or Rangers.

  • Wurm, which means 'snake' or 'serpent' is also another archaic name used for Dragons.
