A big part of the main quest for Saharash is unveilling the origins of the Castucs ;-)
Please feel free to continue speculating on that before the truth comes to light. I really enjoy reading this post =^__^=
Aren't they greedos? ^^ those water monsters from Mt Zinit?
They both like water, so maybe?
They could be distantly related, but since the shores of Zinit are salt-water based and the desert fresh water, I'm sure they're not one and the same. :-)

They're probably linked to the cursed fountain, but since we never got a real explanation what that was in the cartoons, we might find it here in the desert. :-)

Or you know

They're a completely different species unrelated to both Puddlies and Greedoblops.

Golly gee, imagine that.

Ryf talked about the origin of the cactus so I'm just guessing, can't hurt to guess. At least I'm trying.

It would be nice to provide a basis for your theory, don't you think? Both of those assumptions make no sense. Castucs are supposed to be "desert spirits", according to the blog post, and aren't made out of any fluids, unlike puddlies and (greedo)blops, therefore your assumptions make no sense.

Edit: the castuc npc implies that they have hard skin. This allows us to completely abandon this theory. Besides... Body made out of a fluid? In the middle of a desert?

Cacti are a source of water though having an outer shell doesn't mean you have zero water what so ever nor does being in a desert so your attempt at debunking them while ignoring this fact is wrong.

Yet it still doesn't relate them to puddlies or greedoblops at all. That would be like saying humans in the game are puddlies because humans are about 70% water.

No one said anything about them not being related to the fountain.

It's just because they were introduced as 'living in the water' makes their connection to water even stronger... In a dried up desert with a cursed fountain. I see a theme here

"While I took notes for my travel guide, sitting at the edge of a lake, one of them quickly popped its head out of the water! A species of cactus, quite small, but obviously very smart. And not shy for a kama!"

I just finished the questline and the chief does in fact mention a time before they had the spines

they weren't always cacti further adding to this theory - we won't know more until april 4th though

Their black bodies and wihite eyes do remember me of the Polters, also nature spirits. Take away their fancy garbs and their just black blobs with angry eyes. :-)

Putting a cautionary bet on them being evolved/adapted fungi masters.

you're right! could be polters

yeah maybe those, it's nice to see new ideas from everyone here. These new monsters are the best things since boowolves.

Or, you know, they can be new monsters totally unrelated to anything from Dofus.

People are whining that there's no content unrelated to Dofus and then try to make everything an allusion to Dofus. Amazing.

The polter analogy is interesting, though. Out of all presented theories, this one is my favorite, although I'm not sure about the exact nature of the polters - if they're just an extension of Soft Oak's powers, I guess that there's no link between those two families; I need to rewatch the season 1 episode to make sure, as Dofus Monster: Soft Oak doesn't mention polters at all.

Aren't they greedos? ^^ those water monsters from Mt Zinit?
They both like water, so maybe?
They could be distantly related, but since the shores of Zinit are salt-water based and the desert fresh water, I'm sure they're not one and the same. :-)

They're probably linked to the cursed fountain, but since we never got a real explanation what that was in the cartoons, we might find it here in the desert. :-)
Wait, you're implying evolution when we know the gods exist and have the power to create life. Did the gods create life on the world or did the world already have life when the gods got here.

Both, sort of. The Eliatropes lived in what is now know as the world of 12, but the Mechasms forced them to abandon the world. After some time the 12 Gods discovered thise empty planet and filled it with life again.

The Eliatropes are from here? But I thought they left their own world and found this one. 0.o

polter arms? but i'm still unsure

anything a polter takes over is essentially a zombie and these guys show that they have enough intelligence to speak and aren't really just drones

not that the theory isn't fun

for those who don't know you can fight polters in emelka at night time in game once daylight hits they stop respawning but will remain on the map
