"Rotten cysts are oozing from the corrupt land..."
The Hive Cyst is an rare Pre-Hardmode stationary enemy that spawns in the Corruption biome. When killed, it will summon The Hive Mind. It is the Corruption counterpart to the Perforator Cyst. The cyst has 2000 max life, which is exceptionally high for a Pre-Hardmode NPC that cannot deal damage.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Avoid leaving sight of the Hive Cyst, due to the fact that it may despawn if left out of sight for a short amount of time.
- Building an arena around the cyst is ideal, since The Hive Mind isn't able to move until Phase 2, and it despawns if left out of sight, similarly to the cyst.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Hive Mind will spawn directly where the Hive Cyst was after killing it, so make sure you are prepared.
- Despite being classified as an enemy, minions will not attack the cyst, similarly with the Perforator Cyst.
