The Battle[edit | edit source]

Ocram's hit box is not very precise, so some attacks will fail to hit him. To avoid missing him, aim for his eyes.

Ocram's second form is extremely dangerous; he'll fire waves of Demon Scythe spells. Their damage can reach 180 in one hit, so make sure to avoid them.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

For Melee users:

For Ranged users:

  • The ranged set of Chlorophyte armor is recommended. If you can't get it, use Hallowed armor instead.
  • A Megashark or Uzi as well as Gatligator with Crystal Bullets can work well, if you make sure to aim for his eyes.
  • Alternatively, you could use the Flamethrower if you've beaten Skeletron Prime. If you are concerned about your ammo, it would be useful to create a gel farm with a Slime Statue.
  • The Pulse Bow is quite effective, as the arrows bounce off walls and deal large amounts of damage.
  • Using Heart Arrows with a bow that uses more than one arrow such as the Tsunami can stun Ocram, preventing it from shooting or spawning Servants of Ocram.
  • Megashark,Venus magnum, or clockwork assault rifle can be helpful paired up with clorphlyte bullets.

For Magic users:

For Summoners:
