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.

Gearing Up[edit | edit source]
Weapons[edit | edit source]
For Melee users:
- Shoot him with a sword with ranged capabilities, such as the Terra Blade, True Night's Edge, True Excalibur, or Beam Sword.
- If you have not yet acquired any of these swords, an easy sword to obtain is the Chlorophyte Claymore; it deals good amounts of damage and fires orbs which deal hefty amounts of damage.
- Boomerangs such as Light Discs or Bananarangs will work well. The Possessed Hatchet will do good amounts of damage with a good modifier
- If you have managed to get The Horseman's Blade, you can easily kill the servants with it, and the summoned pumpkins can hit Ocram.
- If you can get it, use Turtle armor. Otherwise, use the melee sets of Chlorophyte armor or Hallowed armor.
- If you have killed him multiple times before and are planning to farm him, Dragon armor is quite effective.
- You can also use Flasks; the most useful are Flasks of Ichor as they reduce Ocram's defense, and Flasks of Cursed Flames for extra damage.
- If you are looking for a profit, you can use a Flask of Gold.
- Vampire Knives are very useful for their life stealing ability.
- Using the Chlorophyte Warhammer is actually a really good weapon due to its somewhat fast speed and high damage. Just stay outdoors or all your walls will break.
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 Chlorophyte Bullets.
For Magic users:
- A Rainbow Rod, Magical Harp, or Heat Ray would work well.
- If you want to kill the servants easily along with Ocram, use Spectre armor, or the mage sets of Hallowed armor, or you can use Chlorophyte armor or Beetle armor.
- Using a Shadowbeam Staff in an enclosed area can deal massive amounts of damage, as the projectiles can bounce off walls, which also can take out the Servants.
- Use Chlorophyte armor (with Chlorophyte Headgear) if you want to defeat him. Otherwise, use Hallowed armor (with Hallowed Headgear).
- Using Spectre armor with the Golden Shower is very useful as it will heal you small amounts of HP, getting you in the fight for longer. At times, this is also useful for switching between the Golden Shower and another Magic weapon for even more damage. The Cursed Flames (the corruption equivalent of the Golden Shower) is less useful since the flames are affected by gravity.
- A Spectre Staff can be very useful if combined Spectre armor (with the hood), therefore healing you bits of life. This is especially useful, as the lasers fire fast and auto-target the servants, quickly dealing large amounts of damage to the servants and Ocram himself.
- The Inferno Fork is an excellent weapon against Ocram and his servants, as they are not immune to the On Fire! Debuff. It's also useful for getting rid of its servants.
- Minions such as the Optic Staff or Raven Staff are effective against Ocram. Another option is the Tempest Staff if you have defeated Duke Fishron.
- Sentries such as the Queen Spider Staff or Staff of the Frost Hydra are good additional minions.
- Spooky/Tiki sets can boost both summons damage and amount if you don't have these use Spider armor.
- You will want to have summoning items like the Papyrus Scarab, Pygmy Necklace, and Necromantic Scroll to add knockback and extra minions to help you.
Accessories[edit | edit source]
- A Star Veil or Cross Necklace will help with the servants and lasers.
- Wear a Cobalt Shield, Obsidian Shield or Ankh Shield to prevent knockback.
- Use Wings and Frostspark Boots, Lightning Boots or Spectre Boots for increased speed and mobility.
- If you use magic, a Mana Flower may be helpful. However, the Servants of Ocram can often supply you with enough Mana. Additionally, Magic Cuffs can be used instead.
- Celestial Stone does give the player some advantages, since it adds 4 Defense, Life regeneration and increased Damage.
- If you are not using magic weapons, an emblem or Charm of Myths is good.
- If you use the Fire Gauntlet, Warrior Emblem, Avenger Emblem and Destroyer Emblem with Vampire Knives and melee armor such as Dragon armor or Turtle armor it should be easier for the player.

Preparation[edit | edit source]
Make a flat area, but it does not have to be that big, as the Ocram will be stunned in one place for the duration of the fight.
The Battle[edit | edit source]
