Bosses

From Calamity Mod Wiki
(Redirected from Boss)
Jump to: navigation, search

The Calamity Mod expands on the number of bosses that can be challenged throughout the game, each featuring memorable, challenging AI and unique, powerful drops. Most require the use of boss summoning items in order to spawn, but others have more unique prerequisites. The initial defeat of bosses (both vanilla and Calamity) typically results in some form of change within the world, be it new enemies appearing or a meteor crash, indicated by status messages to direct players towards the new content. To make the world feel more alive and give the bosses more of a purpose, many have lore entries, usually explanations about what they are and why they exist, associated with them. The mod currently adds twenty five new boss encounters.

In Expert Mode, bosses drop Treasure Bags which contain powerful Expert-exclusive items in addition to their normal drops. However, many bosses also have new and unique attacks providing players with new challenges to surmount if they hope to reap the rewards. The Calamity Mod's new difficulty modes, Revengeance Mode and Death Mode, increase the challenge even further, often to levels that require rigorous training and complete knowledge of the boss fights if players hope to receive the valuable mode-exclusive rewards. There are other items that activate certain modes that can put the player to the test, further increasing the reward that the player can take, such as the Defiled Rune and Armageddon, while other items, such as the Iron Heart are for bragging rights.

Most bosses in Calamity are designed to be much more difficult than those of vanilla Terraria, offering a challenge even to seasoned players, but are not required to progress through the vanilla game's content. To make up for this, they often drop more powerful equipment and open up new tiers of progression. Any boss that is alive will reduce enemy spawn rate akin to the Zen Potion.

After the player has killed the Moon Lord, a whole new level of progression is unlocked, containing several very powerful bosses that will push the game's mechanics to their limits. These serve to test the player's skill and game knowledge and allow for additional tiers of weapons and items beyond what Terraria's endgame has to offer.

Unprepared players will find these bosses to be spectacularly difficult, but if precautions are taken and proper preparations are made, all of them can be defeated at their respective level of progression. Players are advised to make use of arenas, potions and any other kind of aid they can muster before confronting these challenging bosses.

Pre-Hardmode Bosses[edit | edit source]

Desert Medallion.png

The Desert Scourge is a large, dry, spiked worm boss with 2,300 health (3,680 health in Expert Mode, 4,000 health in Revengeance Mode, and 7,840 health in Death Mode). It is summoned with a Desert Medallion in the Desert, and does not spawn naturally. While it is intended to be one of the first bosses fought and has a relatively simple AI, its intimidating size and speed can easily overwhelm an unprepared player. It becomes a greater threat in Revengeance Mode, where two smaller Desert Scourges join it in the fight, and it is able to fire a barrage of sand bolts from its segments.

The Desert Scourge drops weapons themed around water and electricity, as well as many Victory Shards, an early game crafting material. It drops the Ocean Crest in Expert Mode, an accessory which pacifies several Ocean enemies and allows for limitless underwater breathing. In Revengeance Mode, it also drops the Scourge of the Desert, an early unlimited throwing weapon.

The Hive Mind is a large, brain-like amalgamation with 5,000 health (8,000 in Expert Mode, 10,560 in Revengeance Mode, and 18,400 in Death Mode). It is summoned by using a Teratoma in The Corruption or by killing a Hive Cyst. For its first phase it is immobile, teleporting from time to time, instead relying on its many corrupt minions to attack the player. After losing all of its health, it transitions into its second phase, fully healed and no longer bound to the ground. It now rushes and teleports towards the player, firing slime shots and performing special dash attacks while continuing to summon its servants.

The Hive Mind drops weapons themed around corruption and the dark, as well as True Shadow Scales, which can be used to craft its drops and other items. It drops the Rotten Brain in Expert Mode, which increases the player's strength as their health drops, and causes shade rain to fall when they are hit. After defeating it for the first time, Aerialite Ore will generate underground.

It is summoned by using Bloody Worm Food in The Crimson or by killing a Perforator Cyst. The Perforator Hive floats above the player, firing blood clots and ichor blobs in an upward arc as well as directly at the player.

It has 10,500 total health split over the 3 bosses (16,800 in Expert Mode, 21,000 in Revengeance Mode, and 29,400 in Death Mode). It is summoned anywhere and at any time with an Overloaded Sludge.

The Slime God itself will fly around very quickly, attempting to charge at the player while leaving most of the fighting to its Ebonian and Crimulan Slime God bodyguards. These slimes will perform great jumps towards the player while firing lingering mines, orbs and summoning their own minions. When they reach half health, they will split into smaller, weaker slime gods that will continue to attack. The Slime Gods will get stronger depending on which one is killed first.

The Slime God drops weapons themed around slime, The Corruption, and The Crimson, as well as Purified Gel, which can be used to craft its drops and several late Pre-Hardmode items. It drops the Mana Overloader in Expert Mode, which increases magic abilities at a certain cost.

It drops the Soul of Cryogen in Expert Mode, a wing accessory with added bonuses. It also drops the Frost Flare in Revengeance Mode, which grants an extensive variety of benefits.

She is summoned by using a Charred Idol in the Brimstone Crag biome. She has three different methods of attack which she switches between on a regular cycle: teleporting around and leaving behind brimstone eruptions, hovering frantically above the player while shooting brimstone bolts, and encasing herself in highly defensive rose petals while firing blasts of projectiles. She also summons minions called Brimlings that shoot gravity affected brimstone fireballs, enrages the Elemental briefly when killed and follow a similar movement pattern to the Brimstone Elemental's first phase.

The Brimstone Elemental drops brimstone-themed weapons and accessories, as well as the Gehenna accessory in Expert mode, which causes brimstone fireballs to occasionally fall from the sky when worn.

Calamitas behaves much like Retinazer, hovering around the player and firing lasers at them, though her lasers will burst into three fast, homing versions after a short time. When defeated, she resurrects herself and begins shooting fireballs, as well as summoning her brothers, Catastrophe and Cataclysm. The brothers will spit fireballs and spew a flamethrower, respectively, and charge toward the player. Calamitas will also spawns a Soul Seeker shield at half health, and summon swarms of Life Seekers (or resurrect her brothers in Expert Mode) throughout the fight.

Although intended to be fought after defeating Plantera, they can be summoned at any point in the game.

The Siren will periodically generate an ice shield to protect herself, while attacking the player with a variety of projectiles and summoning water clones to assist her. The Leviathan will spend most of her time at the player's side, repeatedly launching orbs of energy and summoning minions, while occasionally charging into the player. If either of them are defeated, the boss left alive will become enraged, increasing the aggressiveness of their attacks.

The Leviathan (or The Siren, depending on who is killed last) drops ocean-themed weapons and accessories. They also drop Leviathan Ambergris in Expert Mode, an accessory which grants many boosts and effects when submerged in liquid and releases poisonous seawater as the player moves.

Of the worms in the swarm, there will be one that is longer and more translucent than the rest, which will be invincible until all other worms are killed.

The probes will transition onto another worm if the one they are orbiting is killed.
