— The Heart of the Cavern

The Heart of the Cavern is a Pre-Hardmode Boss fought just before the Wall of Flesh.

Summoning[edit | edit source]

The heart of the cavern cannot spawn on its own and is summoned with the Tainted Crystal Chunk.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Phase 1[edit | edit source]

Phase 2[edit | edit source]

  • The Heart of the Cavern awakens, its one eye opens, marking the beginning of phase 2. This happens when enough rock critters are killed.
  • It begins to fire gembolts out of the asteroids orbiting it in various dazzling patterns. On top of this, the main eye itself will fire a enormous rainbow laser blast, similar to the Moon Lord once in a while.
  • As its health depletes, its damage increases and its attacks get more hectic. It also introduces several new attacks.
  • At 75%, 50% and 25% health, it will summon a group of Gem Critters to fight for it, making it immune temporarily again. You must defeat all the Stone Sentries in order to damage the Heart again. During this period, its attacks are less frequent.
  • In expert, at 50% health, it summons a Chromagickal Crystal to fight for it, which pursues the player and fires a miniature version of the Heart's rainbow laser. The crystal can be killed.
