Giant Worms have a chance to spawn from the egg found in the Giant Tree nest. They destroy all solids while traveling, leaving tunnels that the player can move through. There is a risk that they will damage the Holy Mountain enough to anger the gods. The Worm Crystal reduces the chance of this happening by deterring the worm, but this may still happen on occasion.
While the small Worm is relatively easy to kill even with the starter wand, Giant Worms are much tougher, and deal 25 damage per bite. Their size lends them greater speed, which can get very lethal very quickly.
The largest Giant Worm will have a visible health bar, and has a 50% chance to drop a Maximum Health Increase pickup when killed.
Combat Tips[edit | edit source]
- The worm can't move where there's no terrain to move through, so going to areas with sparse terrain can help avoid it.
- However, it can build up a lot of speed and fly a surprising distance up into the air when lunging for you, so stay on your toes.
- It's head is the only part of it that can deal damage, allowing the player to use spells like chainsaw for a high risk/reward payoff.
- Melee Immunity will render this enemy harmless, other than the damage to terrain it will cause trying to damage you.
