Energy Leech

If a target hit by its consuming grubs has resistance to damage, the swarmtongue hydra gains resist 10 against that type of damage and can transform the damage it deals from any attack into damage of that type. (if the target has multiple resistances, choose one.)

Analgesic Saliva

Damage from the swarmtongue hydra’s tongue lash and consuming grubs attacks does not wake creatures that are sleeping or have been rendered unconscious by a sleep effect.


Each time the swarmtongue hydra becomes dazed or stunned, it instead loses one attack with its fierce lashing power on its next turn. Multiple such effects stack.
