How to Unlock the Swarm-That-Walks Mythic Path in Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous

There are 10 Mythic paths available in Pathfinder: WotR; some are easier to unlock than others. The most confusing of the bunch is the Swarm That Walks. So, in this guide, we will explain to you how to unlock the Swarm That Walks Mythic path in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Pathfinder Wrath of the Righteous Swarm That Walks Mythic Path

The Swarm-That-Walks will turn you into the avatar of pestilence, a walking plague, scouring the land with a swarm of bugs. If that sounds interesting to you, then read on and follow the steps involved in unlocking this unique Mythic path.

How to Unlock Swarm-That-Walks Mythic Path

Swarm-That-Walks is an all-devouring beast that is constantly hungry and is always ready to devour anybody who is in its way. He is the Ultimate path of evil.

Unlocking the Swarm-That-Walks mythic path in Pathfinder WotR is one of the most challenging tasks and time-consuming.

Leave Queen Galfrey

The beginning of this quest requires you to leave the Queen behind in Act 2; don’t take her on the Crusade. You’ll understand why later.

Vescavor Queen Goop

In act 2, you can eventually visit Leper’s Smile, where you’ll actually encounter a swarm.  Further North in the highlands, you’ll even see an ominous ritual circle. You will fight and kill the Vescavor queen here.

A decision will present itself when Anevia arrives. You need to ask her to collect samples of bug goop from the now dead Vescavor Queen. This will come in handy later.

Battle for Drezen

The bug goop from the Vescavor Queen will help you in the battle for Drezen; you’ll have the option to use it to start a plague in the city. Note that this is why you left behind the queen; she wouldn’t have allowed this atrocity.

Demonic Parasites Quest

If all has gone well, you’ll receive a quest called Demonic parasites in Act 3. This involves finding a young Vescavor Queen.

The Queen will be inside one of houses at Drezen. The players must not kill the Queen after finding her.

Xanithar Vang

After completing this quest, you will eventually have to fight and defeat Xanthir Vang.

Once the players defeat him, they need to speak with it to ask how he became a swarm. Now, gather his notes placed in the room and a new crusade project will be unlocked.

It will take 14 days for you guys to complete the project once you Pass the Decree to move on. Later, players will meet Anaevia after the cutscene.

Here, Anaevia will inform you about the worries of your companions for following this path to unlock the swarm.

There will be different options visible on the screen, so chose any of them except ‘I don’t know what came over me’. This will allow you to become the Swarm that walks.

Devour the Vescavor Queen

Next, you need to complete all research-related tasks before Act 4 begins. As Act 5 begins, you need to head towards the Drezen to the Vescavor Queen.

Here, select the Devour the Queen option, but you can only select this option if you have completed the research.

Once you devour the Queen, you will have crossed the last hurdle to unlock the Swarm That Walks Mythic path.

Swarm That Walks Abilities and Benefits

In Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, as the Swarm that Walks is the evilest character, its abilities and benefits also are much like the character’s nature itself. When you turn into the Swarm, all your companions will leave you.

Moreover, your army will also be replaced by Swarm units, with which most of the abilities are linked. We have described Swarm That Walk’s abilities below.

Swarm Infest: This allows you to send part of your Swarm army to infest enemy armies. Targets get blind and take physical damage each round. The larger the swarm you send, the more damage they do. If the enemy dies while under the effect of this ability, it gets devoured.

Swarm Feast: Swarm of your body flies and attacks enemies in radius of 50 ft. Every round, physical damage is dealt to enemies and if they die while in the area of effect, they will get devoured. Also, enemies hitting ranged attacks only have a 50% chance of getting a hit.

Swarm Clone: With this ability, you can create a clone of yourself using the swarm. They have access to the same abilities as well but different inventories. You can create up to one clone per three points of the size of your swarm
