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

Dark Casters are immune to the Poisoned, Venom, and Confused debuffs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
  • On the Mobile only.pngMobile version, if you are farming for Ectoplasm, try killing the Water Spheres over and over again, as they still spawn Dungeon Spirits.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.2.0.3: Can now drop its own respective banner.
  • 1.0.5: A longer delay was added between the 3-shot volley and the next teleport.
