The Mumbler is an enemy encountered in Fear & Hunger. Two of the Mumblers has been infected by a brain flower.


Mumblers can be found patrolling on both levels of the Thicket, although there are none in the Cockroach King's lair or the path leading to it. There are five normal Mumblers and two infected Mumblers.

TThe head will use Soul binding 33% of the time, which will reduce the mind of a target to 50.

The head can be easily destroyed however it will deal 8-12 damage to and poison a single target after being attacked, this is recommended if a White vial is available to the player. If only mind healing items are available to the player, they should go for the arms and then torso, however they should avoid ending a fight with 0 mind as that will immediately cause Panophobia.

If neither are available to the player, they should just avoid fighting the Mumbler entirely.

It should be noted that Nas'hrah, The Marriage and Ghouls will have their maximum mind reduced permanently from Soul binding.
