Mantis Youth Notes & Tips
- A Mantis Youth is usually found clinging onto a wall or ceiling. Once you are within its range, it will fly in to ambush The Knight and flies back up to avoid any incoming attacks.
- These creatures become non-hostile after defeating the Mantis Lords. However, they will still retaliate if you try to attack them or gets caught up with attacks using spells.
