The Eater is Jolly Roger's assassin and spy kind of Undead. Eaters were once people who died a fiery and smokey death. It takes the form of a PVP Zombie, and can inflict devastating damage on unsuspecting and unprepared pirates. When the Eater is defeated, a cloud of smoke shoots up into the air causing 10 Undead Raiders to spawn. The Eater prefers to keep a low profile and not be seen, so unless it is attacking, it stays on the ground and crawls. The Eater's weakness is a group of pirates.
The Eater is always found in the shadows on tall platforms. It waits in the shadows for a pirate to wander too close. Once the pirate is in range, it will strangle, or Scratch if the pirate does not fall after the snipe is performed.
The Eater uses its powerful, long tongue to drag the pirate to him. The strangle does 500 damage per second. If the pirate is completely dragged to the Eater, he will drop the pirate and use his claws. If the Eater is attacked by another pirate while using strangle, he will drop the victim.
The Eater spits some harmful acid that sticks to a large area for 10 seconds.
Charge and Scratch
Very quickly, the Eater cherry picks a pirate from a group and charges them to a wall. Then, the Eater scratches and tears up the pirate doing 1,000 damage a second.
If the Eater uses Strangle and the pirate survives, he will finish the pirate with his claws, doing 1,000 damage per scratch.
