Mandragors are a species in the bestiary of Guild Wars. They seem to be a merger of insects and plants, but technically they belong to neither of these two species. They have exoskeletons and drop carapaces like insects, but they also have root-like projections and drop different roots like plants. They seem to be amphibious, can be found in marshes and areas by the water. They burrow underground and pop up to surprise travelers and move at a very high speed.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In higher level areas GW:EN mandragors can be quite dangerous, bringing down unwary parties quickly with AoE hexes/conditions and mass degeneration.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Mandragora is Latin for Mandrake.
- The images for Mandragor Carapaces and Swamp Roots (since renamed to Mandragor Swamproots) were accidentally swapped during the Guild Wars Nightfall World Preview Event.
- In early concept art Mandragors were significantly more plantlike, covered in thick moss.
- Mandragor Slithers resemble Antlion larvae.
