Environments[edit | edit source]

Skill & Behavior[edit | edit source]

Hermit Crabs initially spawn a distance away from the player(s), so to not be harmless and easily taken care of when spawned in.

Hermit Crabs will run away from any danger within 3 player spaces, and after 5 player spaces, will proceed to bury itself back into the ground so to resume firing.

On the contrary, if there's no targets in sight, Hermit Crabs will instead actively hunt down a target. Likewise, it will resume its regular behavior once a target is in sight.

Bury + Mortar Volley[edit | edit source]

Hermit Crabs only skill is to bury itself into the ground.[1] While in this buried state, the Hermit Crab will proceed to passively launch 3 boulders at the targeted area, each dealing 400% damage with a Proc Coefficient of 0.5.

The Bury has a cooldown of 3 seconds, while there's a 5 second cooldown between the firing of the Mortar Volley.
