- Not to be confused with Shrimpy Truffle.
The Scaly Truffle is a Hardmode mount-summoning item. When used, it summons a Pigron Mount that allows the player to fly for a limited time, and run faster on land. It is obtained by fishing in the cavern layer of a Snow biome overlapping a Hallow, Corruption, or Crimson biome in Hardmode. The chance to catch it is 1/100 with 50 Fishing Power and 1/50 with 100 Fishing Power.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- At top speed, running with Lightning Boots is faster than on a Pigron Mount.
- Flight time on a Pigron Mount is comparable to Frozen/Flame/Spectre/Beetle/Leaf Wings.
- There is no movement bonus in liquids.
- The top running speed of a Pigron Mount is 46 mph.
- Due to a bug, it cannot be acquired through normal gameplay.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Although the Pigron enemy can appear in different colors, the Pigron Mount's color is pink.
- When standing still on it for a while, it will eventually yawn.
- The Pigron Mount buff tooltip "Now you see me..." is a reference to how Pigrons can turn nearly invisible. It is also a reference to the widely used phrase, "Now you see me... now you don't."
