The Earth Elemental is a rare Hardmode mini boss found in the Underground and Cavern layers. Its method of attack is to fly toward the player while periodically charging. It will also occasionally fire blasts of rocks, which burst upon impact with blocks.
Due to its intimidating size, ability to phase through blocks, and immunity to all forms of knockback, it can be a dangerous encounter for unaware players.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The player should take great caution while mining in very early Hardmode, as they might spawn and catch the player unaware. Carrying a Lifeform Analyzer, PDA, or Cell Phone in the inventory can help warn the player.
- Due to the high power of the weapons it drops relative to other early Hardmode weapons, it can be recommended to seek them out, especially for ranged and melee players.
- The ranged attacks made by the Earth Elemental cannot pass through solid blocks (though the blast radius can), allowing the player to take cover from attacks if necessary.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Earth Elemental resembles a gladiator. Furthermore, the arm resembles a weapon called the scissor, consisting of a tube which covered the forearm and a semicircular blade on the end.
- However, the spriter has confirmed that they "have no idea what that end was supposed to be", and that "it just looked cool".
