Rumored to be a mature goop... ...Assuming they survive long enough.
The Gooma has 6-fingered hands that aren't attached to the body. It attacks by spinning.
The Gooma deals low damage and has moderate HP. Once Gooma is dead, if you have filled up the loot bar, you will get a chest that contains your loot. This makes Gooma a reliable source of decent gear and gold in the early game.
Level 10 players should be able to reliably solo Gooma.
The Gooma drops a crazy amount of exp: half of that of a skel warrior. Do kill one, but don't farm them, as they only respawn every minute or so.
- The Gooma was actually added to the game after Goomonger so beginners don't get sad.
