The Sand Elemental's Sandnado Attack

The Sand Elemental is a rare Hardmode enemy which spawns in the Desert during a Sandstorm. They are immune to the Poisoned, Venom, Confused, and Frostburn debuffs.

They drop Forbidden Fragments, the main ingredient for the Forbidden armor as well as the Spirit Flame.

Sand Elementals attack by summoning 3 'Sandnados' randomly around the general location of the player. The distance between them varies, and they remain stationary for their lifespan. Sand Elementals can't travel through blocks, and they fly in a non-linear pattern. They attempt to move towards the player, and get faster as their health depletes.

Sand Elementals are detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The "Sandnados" cannot pass through blocks. Standing underneath a platform of solid block will make the Elemental unable to hit you with its Sandnado.
  • Using the Rod of Discord to teleport to the other side of the Sandnados may be useful; however, since it inflicts the debuff Chaos State after repeated use, be careful how often you use it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Elementals are magical entities who embody/personify a force of nature. Historically, elementals personify one of the four Classical elements: earth, water, air or fire (sometimes plant, but never Aether). Dungeons & Dragons introduced elementals that were fusions, and other unconventional elementals.
