|Accelerating Bolt, Short Bubble|
|Will spawn if the gods are angered. Has a large protective shield that deflects moving projectiles.|
The Stevari will spawn in all Holy Mountains upon triggering the message "You have angered the gods." This can occur if any damage is done to the bordering brickwork surrounding the Holy Mountain shop area (e.g. large explosions, heavy amounts of Acid, or tunneling enemies like Worms).
It possesses a powerful, accelerating long-range explosive attack, as well as a short-range, basic bubble attack.
A recent update added the Worm Crystals, which seem to significantly reduce the likelihood of worms angering the gods.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Both of its ranged attacks can be surprisingly easy to dodge so long as you continue moving vertically.
This enemy has hitpoints in the hundreds. It is highly recommended to either run away, such as with Teleport Spell, or to use your nastiest tricks to defeat it. Using Lightning Bolt is a effective way to kill it because it can pierce its shield.
When exiting a Holy Mountain, the exit will collapse from a small-scale Earthquake. The falling debris may actually trap this enemy and deal massive damage. Should this finish it off, don't be tempted by the gold. You must still watch out for the highly-damaging 'desecrated' effect that occurs after leaving and the collapse occurring. The 'desecrated' effect may eventually go away. See the Holy Mountain page for details.
Surprisingly weak to the Chainsaw. After getting its attention, hide underwater and behind the pillar holding up the health restore and spell refresher, then ambush the enemy with your Chainsaw for impressive damage.
If you just want to kill it without worrying about the gold, using a flask of Polymorphine can be effective. The suggested method would be to throw it in the small hallway between the shop and the perk selection area, make sure to damage the enemy to take down its shield.
Using a flask of Pheromones or Invisiblium is always the best choice if you don't want to kill it.
Very easy to kill with an Emerald Tablet of any kind, provided you have invisibility or learn how to consistently dodge its projectiles. Should require 2 to 3 throws to finish it off. An easy ambush can be set up in the corridor that leads from the shop to the perk altar, but this will leave the enemy between you and the tablet. This also carries the benefit of counting as an accidental kill, which will make it drop 2x as much gold, and may be a viable strategy for early-game money.
