Mythic Path

Initial Mythic Features

Swarm-That-Walks is a Mythic Path in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. An all-devouring monstrocity. This is the path of ultimate Evil, and you should be ready to see even the closest of friends become your enemies - or your food.

 

"Destroy the demons invading from the Abyss, feed them to the swarm, and then turn your gaze upon Golarion. No price is too high for the one whose urge for vengeance eats them alive."

  

Swarm-That-Walks Information

Unlock: 

  • At the beginning of Chapter 2, don't take the queen with you on the crusade.
  • After Leper's Smile, take a sample of the bug goop from the Vescavor Queen. Use it in the battle for Drezen (if the queen is with you she will veto your order to do so)
  • At the beginning of chapter 3, you'll get a quest to find a nascent vescavor queen in Drezen. Find it (it's in one of the houses), but don't kill it.
  • After defeating Xanthir Vang, ask him about how he became a swarm, then pick up his notes in the room. This will unlock a crusade project that takes 14 days. Complete it. This will trigger a scene with Anevia where she tells you that your companions are concerned about your research into swarms. Pick any option besides "I don't know what came over me."
  • At the beginning of chapter 5, you have to go back to the vescavor queen (same house as in chapter 3) and devour her.

 

Swarm-That-Walks Features

  • Your Companions will leave you after you turned into swarms.
  • Your army will be replaced by swarm units.
  • Swarm Infest: You send a part of your swarm to infest an enemy. It makes the target blind and deals 8d8 physical damage each round. This damage increases by 2d8 for each point of your swarm size. If the target dies while under this effect. it's automatically devoured. When the ability ends (by activating Swarm Form ability), you are healed for the amount of damage you've dealt to the enemy with Swarm Infest. Additionally, the target must make a Will saving throw (DC = 15 + double your mythic rank) or become panicked. Using this ability cancels Swarm Form.
  • Swarm Feast: Your swarm flies out of your body and starts attacking all enemies in 50 feet radius. Every round all enemies in the area are dealt (4 plus your swarm size) d6 physical damage. If they die while in the area, they are automatically devoured. Any ranged or ranged touch attacks against you have a 50% chance to miss.
  • Swarm Clone: You gain the ability to make your own clones using the swarm. They have all your abilities, but separate inventory. You can simultaneously have one clone per three points of your swarm size.

      To get swarm size 5 was 1500/5 for me.
      Clones don't seem to be able to use Swarm abilities.
      Also, when the cultists come and you have a choice of new abilities for eating them, I seem to not get them. Not sure if bugged or if I am doing something wrong.
      Got one clone that is another mage which seems to work fine.
      I am largely confused on how to get the abilities that are allegedly being offered by cultists.

        Well, I derped. Meh. Took the queen with for romance BS on the Lich line just so I could stab her in the back thrice over. First, for being an idiot; Second, for her god; and third for thinking a fancy hat and chair means you get respect by default. The cherry on top is killing her and raising her. All I really wanted was to unlock it but ehh... that will be my last complete murder hobo run.

          So if I understand right the other 9 paths can each be pretty easily defined as one of the 9 alignments but this one is Extra Evil?

            Sage (sorcerer) Int + Str / polymorph (Dragonkind III build) is like a walk in the park (hard difficulty).
            Tip: devour everyone and everything, at the end my swarm was 12 (4 clone!!!) and swarm infest was hitting like hell (plus the panic and blindness).

              Bad experience. very painful to play as a melee. make sure ur build can solo really hard. After rank 9, it is braindead as u can basically ignore 95% of the damage. Clone is also trash (as a melee), it is u with swam size 3.
