Coldworm the Burrower is giant Sand Maggot that is always located on the third level of the Maggot Lair, assuming the top of the map is North, her room will always be connected to a tunnel heading North-East. While Coldworm the Burrower is always located in the same room as the chest holding the Shaft of the Horadric Staff, players can just skip her since she's not a quest monster herself.


Coldworm the Burrower herself does not threaten the player in any way whatsoever while she's alive, but since she is Cold Enchanted the frost nova from her death will poison players and hirelings for massive amounts of poison damage over a long duration. She will begin to spawn Sand Maggots when approached. Players will want to use the entrance as a bottleneck to dispatch the monsters as they trickle through. For a melee player, it is not a bad thought to bring an extra Antidote or 2 to counter her amazingly long poison.
