The Dragon (in-game name Suomuhauki) is a worm-like boss encountered in the Dragoncave to the east of the Underground Jungle. It has numerous projectile attacks on top of its worm bite, and is summoned from a giant stone 'egg'. In order to spawn the boss from the 'egg', you must dig into the egg with anything available. The boss will spawn at seemingly random times after you've dug slightly into the egg; completely independent of the amount of egg dug out.

Behaviour & Combat[edit | edit source]

The giant egg in the Dragoncave must be dug into and entered in order to summon the boss. When the player is about a third of the way into the egg, the boss will spawn in its centre and emerge.

The Suomuhauki itself behaves identically to a Jättimato (Giant Worm). It will fly about in the same manner & pattern as a worm, deleting terrain as it goes, trying to collide with the player in order to cause heavy melee damage with its jaws.

In addition to its melee charges it also regularly spews small fireballs as flame breath, rapidly dealing fire damage, and regularly shoots 6 slow green orb projectiles in a hexagon pattern from the eye on its tail. It is quite tanky and can take a lot of damage before dying, but slicing and explosion damage seem to work very well against it. If you have the Melee Immunity perk the only threat it poses to you will be the fire projectiles and the tail-projectiles. The Projectile Repulsion Shield makes this boss significantly easier by effectively nullifying the slow tail projectiles and minimising the chance that the flame breath attack will land.

Upon death it produces quite a lot of blood and drops a Max health upgrade and a wand with powerful stats, usually of a quality similar to what would be expected a stage or two deeper.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name translates from Finnish to "scaled pike". This is likely a play on words to the finnish word for a dragon, "lohikäärme" - literally meaning "salmon snake".
