The Mantid Queen appears in the middle of Saoshang Trail along with some other Mantises. She is also the monk in most groups of mantids in the Charr Homelands. The Level 20, unlike its Level 11 counterpart, has the innate ability to come back to life after dying. This ability is limited to Mantises in Eye of the North and cannot be prevented by Frozen Soil.
"This is a trait of the Mantis family, and is intended to make them feel more like big insects- you stomp on them, but they still get up and crawl around :)."
