The Magical Conch is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is purchased from the Sea King at anytime. It will run on the ground, dealing contact damage to enemies. If the player is flying, the Hermit Crab will float alongside the player, but won't directly attack enemies. Like other minions, the summoned Hermit Crab is invincible and will follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Magical Conch has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Unlike other minions, Hermit Crabs cannot be re-summoned unless they are summoned directly on an enemy, or until the buff is removed.
- Due to the Hermit Crab’s lack of active flight and an inability to move through walls, it often fails to reach its target and get constantly stuck in chasms.
