Rotten Vermin Information

"A queen of the species of giant corrosive ants native to Jugo. Only one exists in Drangleic; its presence in The Gutter seems to suggest that it began its life in the laboratory of Lord Aldia's mansion and eventually outlived its usefulness"

This massive insect queen doesn't do much but stand inside the cave, with no attacks to speak of. Her corrosive gas can heal poison, but at the cost of depleting your equipment durability. She is guarded by hostile poison ticks.

The insect is probably related to the creation of Poison Brumer throughout Earthen Peak, Shrine of Amana and the large prototype in Aldia's Keep, they're to release corrosive or poison gas, while Lord Aldia deployed them in Amana to fend off intruders, Queen Mytha modified the brumers by placing the brumers into poisonous area in order to feed her dying wish for beauty.

      Contrary to what people are saying, the bug itself isn't saying "I love you" or anything of the sort. The sound you hear is the default sound for "enemy nearby" when wearing the Ring of Whispers.

        Use the Ring of Whispers. You'll hear the giant bug here growl at you 3 times repeatedly.

        I wondered what it said, so I recorded it, sped up the play back, and im fairly certain it says "I love you."

          Explanation to this:

          Just in front of the cage where you find this insect, is a fog gate... The fog gate leads to just another area of the gutter.

          What I think is that, the fog gate was planned to be a boss fog gate, and the boss would've been this giant insect (or something else). But the monster is incomplete so they didn't make it a boss. (it doesn't respond to attacks until it's dead)

              An alternate idea.29 Aug 2016 10:56  

              Would have been interesting if by your initial choice to kill or let live affected what happens in The Gulch. Say... While it's alive, it's mist is keeping those worms down below asleep. Or even perhaps the squid like creatures hiding in the tar pits.
