Sticky fungi are spawned during Croesus's boss fight.
They will appear under some players, sticking them in place, interrupting their current action and draining core stats by 10% of their maximum levels every few seconds for a total of 5 hits until the player is freed. This is either through natural decay or lighting a fire with logs underneath (by having logs in the backpack and choosing the "Remove" option on the fungi). Alternatively, the fungi can be burned without logs when wielding Sana's fyrtorch or the Orthen furnace core. Using the skilling off-hands will make this action one tick faster.
