Description EditThe Solifuge is a hostile arachnid mob. It spawns in Volcanic Deserts and the Ulterior Outback.
It can can easily surprise you with its high speed. It's quite smart at avoiding obstacles, so various traps and escape routes (such as jumping over a Ravine) won't cut it. It's also immune to fire and lava.
Due to their death resulting in the dreaded Solifuge Babies, they are regarded as one of the most annoying/terrifying mobs in the Erebus.
- As of 0.2, Solifugae are no longer the fastest mob, as Woodlice now hold that honour.
Solifuge Babies Edit
Upon killing it, it will spawn 4 Solifuge Babies that are all named after a potion effect. They only inflict half a heart of damage, but when four of them attack you all at once and there's one named Blindness... well. Things don't end well.
WARNING: Solifugae spawn in areas featuring Black Widows and Scorpions. It is advised to stay well away from them at all costs, as a Solifuge Baby that inflicts Blindness could very well spell the end of you. If you absolutely MUST kill a Solifuge, do so with a ranged weapon, then eliminate the babies in the same fashion. If you're faced with one, with no ranged weapon and the possibility of Black Widows or Scorpions, run. I'm not kidding. These things are THAT dangerous when they split, regardless of armour.
Possible names and effects include:
- Confusion (Nausea)
- Dig Slowdown (Mining Fatigue)
- Move Slowdown (Slowness)
All of the above effects are inflicted for 6 seconds when struck.
Of course, this is considerably more OP than you'd expect, and real Solifugae aren't venomous at all.
