The Plague Hive is a Hardmode accessory exclusive to Expert Mode. Equipping it grants the following benefits:

  • The wearer is immune to the Plague debuff.
  • All of the wearer's attacks inflict the Plague debuff.
  • All of the wearer's attacks spawn homing plague seekers upon hitting an enemy.
    • Plague seekers deal 25% damage of the attack that spawned them, capped at 30 damage.
  • When the wearer takes damage, several bees are spawned that will seek out and attack nearby enemies.
  • All bee/wasp projectiles produced by the wearer will have their damage increased by 20-30, and will inflict the Plague debuff.
  • Enemies within approximately a 12-tile radius of the player are automatically afflicted with the Plague debuff.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Plague Hive causes ALL entities 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.
  • The player's attacks have a 25% chance to inflict Plague for 6 seconds, a 37.5% chance to inflict Plague for 4 seconds, and a 37.5% chance to inflict Plague for 2 seconds.
  • The HP loss from the Plague debuff, combined with the aura of it being quite long-range for when it is obtained, is enough to dispatch weaker enemies without any input from the player whatsoever.
