Although they are very weak, this enemy is frustrating to deal with due to its triple Freeze attack, in which it stacks up to keep your characters frozen for a while. It's even worse when this enemy is in mobs, as they can easily gang up on a character and completely destroy him mainly because they can keep him frozen constantly. Taking them out from a distance is a must. Anyone that gets close will be bombarded by freezing Needle attacks. One good strategy is to use a character as bait and use a ranged character, such as a Sniper with a Triple Poison 4 (especially with a Peridot) or a Magician with a Thunder Spear 4 to kill them. This is the first enemy to use Freeze type attacks that is not a snowflake (needle) and the first non-waterborne freezing enemy.
