Gold is delicious, and your golden leech knows that the reptiles are full of it. This mutation combines with Cerulean Walkers and Stalagmite Walkers to multiple the gold that your leech can draw out of the reptiles. There are no downsides to this mutation, and it should be part of your focus especially as you near the end of your game, as the leech can help buy you a significant number of queen levels to give you a boost in distance capabilities. The gold received when you upgrade your leech to Gilded is still impacted by this mutation.
