Dark Casters are enemies encountered in the Dungeon. They follow the Caster AI, firing three projectiles before teleporting to another on-screen location. Their water bolt projectiles travel through walls, but can be destroyed with a single hit from any weapon.

Notes[]

Tips[]

  • The Water Spheres reveal the map as they travel, even while traveling through solid blocks. Therefore, Dark Casters can be used to map areas just outside the dungeon walls.
  • Water Spheres look nearly identical to the Water Bolt spell. Be careful when using the Water Bolt in the Dungeon, in case the two are mixed up.
    • Water Spheres can pass through blocks, while the Water Bolt projectiles cannot. If it passes through blocks, it is a hostile projectile.

Trivia[]

  • If the player equips the Skull and the Robe, It strongly resembles the Dark Caster
  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Dark Caster: "Doomed to watch over the Dungeon, these mages teleport to confuse their prey, before striking them down with a blast of water."

History[]

  • Desktop 1.0.5: A longer delay was added between the 3-shot volley and the next teleport.
