We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Sea Snail is a rare enemy that spawns in the Ocean on either end of the world, usually during the daytime. Even then the spawn rate is still the lowest of all enemies in the Ocean, one third that of Squids. It slowly crawls along the sea floor. When killed it drops Purple Mucos, which is used to create Purple Dye at a Dye Vat. They are immune to the Confused debuff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Murex sea snail was used to create purple dye in the real world.
  • It closely resembles the Syrinx aruanus (or false trumpet snail), the largest gastropod still existing.
  • Altrough this enemy is very rare, it cannot be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Can now drop its own respective banner.
  • 1.2: Introduced.
