King Shroomus is the only boss in Mysterium. He is very powerful, and can easily become one of the deadliest bosses in Nevermine for ill-equipped players. King Shroomus is spawned by using a Shroom Stone in Mysterium

Behavior[edit | edit source]

King Shroomus fires a huge amount of projectiles when a player is in certain range. These projectiles can inflict one of the following status effects: Poison, Slowness III, Weakness III and Nausea. The projectiles that do damage have no effects. He can also occasionally regenerate health at a very rapid speed, faster than the Iosaur or Archvine.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Because King Shroomus can be spawned anywhere in Mysterium, the player can use the terrain as an advantage. This also allows the player to get far away from King Shroomus because the fight is not in an enclosed arena. If the player keeps away from King Shroomus and uses several ranged weapons, the fight becomes much easier because King Shroomus will not attack the player. However, the player must watch out for other Mysterium mobs such as Fungiks that can not only provide deadly debuffs but also push the player back into King Shroomus' field of vision, triggering his attacks.

Do not get near King Shroomus otherwise more of his projectiles will be able to hit you and deal heavy amounts of damage.

Melee weapons are not recommended for this fight, as King Shroomus' rapid rate of fire will easily knock a player out of melee range and deal heavy damage.

Drops[edit | edit source]

King Shroomus's drops are exclusive. That means you will get only 1 of all possible items per kill, along with the respective statue of this boss.

When killed, this boss always drops its stone statue version.
