Putrid Ghosts will intermittently slowly fly through walls towards the player and charge them at increased speed, dealing damage on hit. They can cast a spell that inflicts a nauseated debuff on the player, preventing them from healing with food or drink for 2 minutes. Eating Ginger or drinking Ginger Ale will cure the Nauseated debuff.
Stand still and swing at it with a sword or club right before it hits you. High-damage but slow weapons are more efficient than quick, low-damage weapons such as daggers. Ghosts are knocked back several tiles after being hit, so walking towards them may speed up the process of killing them. Otherwise, wait until they slowly float back towards you for another strike. When they are charging you, run and make a sharp turn to avoid their green fireballs.
