Buff icon

Threadling is a Strand icon.png Strand buff.


A creature woven from pure Strand matter that seeks nearby targets and attacks, dealing damage.


  • If no enemies are nearby for it to attack, a Threadling will return to its creator and perch, becoming stored for future use.
    • Up to 5 Threadlings can perch at a time, with the current amount indicated by the buff icon. They can also be seen revolving around the player.
    • Damaging targets with weapons or melee attacks will automatically release perched Threadlings, causing them to attack the enemy.


These effects can cause Threadlings to spawn.
