Ardorix is a Pre-Hardmode Boss, spawned with Fiery Egg. It's a fiery Phoenix that resides in The Underworld, able to withstand huge amount of damage and revive stronger than before.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

It can only be spawned with Fiery Egg, which can be crafted or rarely dropped by Fire Imps. It can be only be used in The Underworld.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Ardorix is a flying enemy, flying over the player. Normally, it fires 3 flames in a spreaded arc, with the center directed to the player. It then rams the targeted player for a while and then returns to fire flames.

Dealing too much damage in a short time will make it become ethereal, becoming invincible for a short while. It then reappear and can be damaged again. After becoming vulnerable again, Ardorix remains stationary to charge it's powerful flamethrower, which is then unleashed like a bullet hell pattern. The attack follows (very slowly) the player if it dodges. To prevent this, players must stop deal damage to Ardorix for a while, encouraging short-burst damage. However, you can freely damage Ardorix while it's charging and using the flamethrower. After a while, it returns normal.

In Expert Mode, Ardorix can withstand more damage before becoming ethereal. This is to compensate the health increase, and increases with more players that join the fight.
