The Plague Hive is an Hardmode, Expert Mode-exclusive accessory. Equipping it causes all of the player's attacks to inflict the Plague debuff and spawn homing plague seekers upon hitting an enemy. Plague seekers deal 25% damage of the attack that spawned them, capped at 30 damage. Additionally, the player spawns several bees when damaged.

The damage of all bee/wasp projectiles produced by the player is increased by 20-30, and all bee/wasp projectiles will inflict the Plague debuff.

Enemies within a medium radius of the player take significant damage over time and are afflicted with the Plague debuff. Due to the very high damage of the plague aura, this accessory can heavily weaken or outright kill lesser enemies without any input from the player.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite only requiring materials up to The Plaguebringer Goliath, the Plague Hive cannot be crafted until the Lunatic Cultist has been defeated due to requiring the Ancient Manipulator.
  • It should be emphasized that the Plague Hive causes ALL attacks to inflict plague, including NPC's and Enemies' attacks. This will not affect the player because of the Plague Hive's additional property of making you immune to plague. It will, however, affect NPCs.
  • On attack, there is a 25% chance for Plague to inflicted for 6 seconds, a 37.5% chance to be inflicted for 4 seconds, and a 37.5% chance to be inflicted for 2 seconds.
