Strategies for Grifolaroo
|“||Grifolaroos live in a depths of a cave north-east of the Mage Training Arena. The creatures of that dungeon are coated in toxic fungus, so you should fight them from a distance, although they'll try to hop over obstacles towards you. The fungus helps them repair physical damage, so you might prefer using magical attacks.||”|
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Grifolaroos use both Magic and Ranged attacks against players. The ranged attack prompts it to turn around and launch barbs, while it makes a squeezing motion to launch a transparent projectile as ita magic attack.
When attacked and the player is not within 2 spaces of the Grifolaroo, it will yelland jump 3-4 spaces towards the player - it may also get itself stuck in an inaccessible area on the platform at some cases. The player will briefly lose track of the Grifolaroo as it jumps, after which it becomes targetable again shortly after it jumped. Grifolaroos will also attempt to close in on the player to infest them with fungi.
Due to the jumping mechanic, it's best to stay within melee distance of a Grifolaroo so it does not jump. Spraying neem oil will prevent infestation damage, although they should be taken down quickly.
