Summoning[edit | edit source]
Deviantt does not spawn on its own and must be summoned by the player by using a Deviantt's Curse. The Deviantt NPC will transform into the boss.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
Deviantt attacks the player with moves reminiscent of various Eternity Mode enemies. All of Deviantt's attacks inflict a wide variety of debuffs, some taken from the original enemies and others reduced or changed. Contact and "original" attacks inflict Lovestruck instead.
Expert Mode[edit | edit source]
Upon reaching 50% of its maximum health in Expert mode, Deviantt will enter its second stage. All of Deviantt's attacks inflict more damage and gain various new mechanics.
Eternity Mode[edit | edit source]
Deviantt heals to full health when entering its second stage.
It performs one strong attack in between every three weak attacks. Strong attacks additionally summon an arena that prevents escape. Attacks are chosen at random, but cannot be repeated until a cycle has passed. In stage two, Deviantt only does two weak attacks between each strong attack.
Weak attacks[edit | edit source]
- Teleports around the player a random number of times and then fires a spray of boomerang-like Paladin hammers. In the second stage, can teleport more times and fires more hammers.
- Fires three barrages of hearts in the same manner as a Nymph. In the second stage, additionally fires a second set of hearts with each barrage.
- Creates three rings of light orbs that spiral out and then burst into many more orbs at a certain distance. In the second stage, each ring is made of overlapping spirals.
- Summons and rains down a barrage of Mimics. In the second stage, uses Biome Mimics that leave behind damaging Fake Hearts.
- Circles the player while shooting frostfireballs. In the second stage, additionally creates ancient storms in the direction the player is moving.
- Teleports around the player and shoots bursts of rune blasts while surrounded by a double aura that inflicts Hexed, Crippled, and Dazed. In the second stage, also fires rings of circling rune blasts.
- Charges directly at the player five times while emanating moth dust. In the second stage, charges are performed more rapidly.
- Fires a successive barrage of shadowbeams, inferno blasts, and then a ring of lost souls. In the second stage, attacks more rapidly and fires a denser ring.
- Teleports above the player, glows with fiery energy and then summons an eruption of Baby Guardians along with two rows that sweep in from both sides. In the second stage, fires two additional rows after the first set.
Strong attacks[edit | edit source]
- Rapidly fires hearts upwards which rain back down in evenly spaced rows. In the second stage, the hearts erupt into pillars of energy upon striking the floor.
- Sprays energy hearts around the player that explode into cross-shaped rays. The initial hearts are intangible and deal no damage. In the second stage, fires more aggressively.
- Summons a swarm of butterflies that circle overhead while raining down light orbs. In the second stage, butterflies shoot more light orbs and cover more area.
- Builds energy and then petrifies all players looking at it. Continues to charge energy and then fires a colossal beam that inflicts massive damage. In the second stage, additionally emits rings of hearts while charging.
- Summons a monstrous axe and then slams it on the player, spraying ray-shooting energy hearts in every direction. This attack is only performed in the second stage and will always be Deviantt's first strong attack in the second stage.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Heals when hit by a player who is under the Lovestruck debuff.
- Hearts produced by the Nymph spread and Biome Mimic attacks always deal a flat 20 damage and ignore defense, damage reduction, and invulnerability frames.
- Some attacks pass through the Creepers from the Gutted Heart.
- Inflicts no contact damage during Baby Guardian and heart rain attacks.
- Takes 25% increased damage from all melee and summon attacks. If the Calamity, Thorium, or Shadows of Abaddon mods are enabled, the Deviantt takes regular damage instead.
- The hitbox of Deviantt's axe spawns at full size, even before the axe visually grows. However, the hitbox is much thinner than the sprite and does not cover the blade itself.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Nymph's Perfume grants immunity to Lovestruck, preventing Deviantt from healing through damage taken.
- Gutted Heart is significantly less useful, because many of her attacks bypass the Creepers it summons.
- Accessories reforged to Menacing, The Queen's Stinger, and Agitating Lens can all greatly increase damage output against the boss.
- An arena with multiple layers of platforms should be used because solid tiles allow Deviantt to hide in them and can obstruct player movement, especially during strong attacks.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The music that plays during Deviantt's boss battle is Lexus Cyanixs by Sakuzyo.
- Several of Deviantt's attacks are inspired by attacks from the game Rabi-Ribi.
- Deviantt's axe is internally named Sparkling Love.
- If the player has installed the Boss Checklist Mod installed, her despawn message says: "Deviantt is satisfied with its show of love."
