Scarabeus is a Pre-Hardmode boss and the first boss of the Spirit Mod. It is intended to be fought before King Slime.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

Scarabeus does not spawn on its own, and requires the player to summon it with the Scarab Idol. It can be fought anywhere, at any time.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Scarabeus will run after the player, float into the sky, and attempt to fall on the player. It summons Scarabs to attack the player, and fires a few projectiles in Expert Mode.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Scarabeus will regularly jump in the air and fall back down onto the player's approximate location.
  • Every 4 seconds, Scarabeus will summon a Scarab to attack the player.

In Expert Mode

  • Scarabeus' movement speed is increased.
  • Scarabeus leaves stationary Gilded Dust balls behind as it moves, which explodes into a slow, moving ball of Gold Dust after 2 seconds. Gold Dust chases the player until it dissipates after 10 seconds.

Summons[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to Atlas, Scarabeus is known for being notoriously buggy, especially in multiplayer, and the issues are currently being resolved in the next few updates.
