Ash Hoppers are creatures found in southern Solstheim, similar to the scrib of Vvardenfell. They appear as moderate sized insects, often seen sifting through the Ashlands in groups of two or three. They will hide themselves in the sand before you enter their ambush ring. When attacking, hoppers will often attempt to circle around behind their prey like wolves. They may carry droops, a disease which reduces your one-handed and two-handed weapon damage by 15%.
- The Ash Hopper is identified in the Creation Kit as "Scrib". There is also unused data for a Scrib ability that paralyzes foes upon contact, much like scrib have in Morrowind, as well as an additional poison damage effect.
- Ash Hoppers that can ambush you from underground do not play an ambush sound upon digging out.
- This bug is fixed by version 2.0.3 of the Unofficial Dragonborn Patch.
