Guide talk:The Destroyer strategies

I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but here's a video of some guy killing Destroyer in like five seconds.

Takes a bit of doing (I don't have any of the crab statues), but 5 sec is crazy.


Why is that not on the page?????? Lazeman 00:50, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Help With Probes[edit source]

I have the poison staff, lots of Grand Healing Potions, a campfire, and a heart lantern. I can survive okay, but the Probes give me enough trouble that I can't damage The Destroyer enough. What's the best way to fend them off? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ‎ (talkcontribs) at 23:15:47 June 15 2014

I would suggest just making the probes top priority. Can I ask what type of armor you have? If you're able to kill other bosses, hallowed armor or frost armor will probably help a lot. If not, go for titanium. --Xolroc (talk) 04:23, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
I currently have Titanium. It's the best I can get my hands on. I just acquired a Legendary Cutlass, so that may help. I have yet to get the Nimbus Rod, which may be my biggest issue. I managed to survive and wear down Skeletron until sunrise, where I died of course. I almost took out it's melee limbs. I died to The Twins fairly easily.
My equipment is Poison Staff, Magic Dagger, Demon Scythe, Queen Spider, Imp Staff, Water Bolt, Dao of Pow, Bee Gun, Cutlass, Diamond Staff, and Titanium Trident for weapons. My other equipment is Crystal Ball, Grand Potions, Lesser Mana Potions, Frozen Shell, Obsidian Shield, Cloud Balloon, Harpy Wings, Lightning Boots, Mana Flower, and Magic Cuffs. I have both Melee and Magic helmets, and most parts for the Fire Gauntlet, lacking 2/3 of the Avenger Emblem.
I'm adding any potions I can to my next battle, such as Regen, Mana Regen, Ironskin, Magic Pow, and Pumpkin Pie. I feel better now that I have more offensive presence, but I haven't tested this yet. --Dialga The Time Lord 20:54, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
My arena's close to the Corruption, so I can spawn the EoW, but I don't think that'll be necessary. --Dialga The Time Lord (talk) 21:06, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
By the time I took out the destroyer, I had just mythril armor and some ironskin and regen potions, using a cutlass as a weapon. I wasn't doing it alone, though; if you have a friend who could help I'd recommend you try working together to kill it. -Xolroc (talk) 21:48, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm playing Singleplayer, but I did successfully beat the Destroyer. Should I keep farming the Destroyer or go for The Twins or SP? I've got 20 Hallowed Bars and 32 Souls of Might.
I don't know how to direct you here! I found the Twins to be the hardest, but you may find them easier than Skeletron Prime. The Destroyer is a good source of souls of might and hallowed bars, but you can't make all the hallowed gear until you have all three types of soul. -Xolroc (talk) 23:52, 16 June 2014 (UTC)
I'm buying the Mush Spear and farming Destroyers for now. Skelly Prime seems easier, so I'm fighting him next.

REALLY good way to beat the destroyer[edit source]

now all you need and this may take some time, is a nimbus rod, now what you do is you build up a bit but make sure the destroyer can reach the platform but monsters that spawn don't jump on, make it about 100 blocks wide and move around to dodge when the destroyer comes and put up some clouds in his path, 1 set of 2 clouds can do about 30000-50000 damage it's ridiculously easy to kill him with this method, but may require some grinding

When im fighting The Destroyer for some reason halfway through the fight it glitches out and i crash. It happens every time its really annoying, how do i stop this? im playing on console. SlayerOfBosses (talk) 21:59, 15 March 2015 (UTC)SlayerOfBosses

Expert Mode Differences?[edit source]

Is the only difference the large damage from the head? Or is there something else? Seems kind of...lacking, if that's the case. Zsashas (talk) 15:06, 17 April 2016 (UTC)
