This page describes content that is a part of the Echoing Void DLC. 


A snareling is a hostile mob found in the Echoing Void DLC. It behaves similar to the spider.


A snareling is a tall mob that resembles the normal enderman in body shape but instead of purple, it possesses very light-yellow eyes with a glow effect that position a bit upwards on its face. On its chest is what appears to be a glowing open hole and on its back is a large cube-like core which is used to store and launch sticky goo at it’s target. It also possesses long sickle-like arms that it uses to slash at snared prey and are longer than its small legs.



Snarelings behave like an End counterpart to spiders. While snarelings have the lowest health of the three enderlings, they can be considered the most dangerous since their attack does repeated damage.


Like other enderlings, they teleport away if the hero comes too close and does not have the slowness effect. Snarelings have three behaviors:


A snareling can spit a giant splat of Snareling Goop at a hero. If they are hit by it, they are stuck in place for a few seconds, similarly to a cobweb, and also given a slowness effect.

Melee attack

If the hero is trapped in snareling goop, all nearby snarelings will teleport next to them and start hitting them repeatedly with their arms.
