Boss Information[edit | edit source]
The Nethengeic Wither(A.K.A Flying Demon) is one of two Nether bosses in Nevermine. It is the harder of the two Nether bosses. The Nethengeic Wither is an upgraded version of the Wither. It should be noted, the Nethengeic Wither is far more difficult than the regular Wither. The Nethengeic Wither can be spawned by using a Nethengeic Callstone which is a rare drop from Nethengeic Beasts. The Nethengeic Wither does not break blocks with projectiles in any form.
It grants 10,000 Hunter experience points when killed.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Nethengeic Wither will float around nearby players while firing explosive projectiles from the sky. The projectiles move very quickly and cause medium size explosions. Players or entities that are hit by the projectiles will be inflicted with Wither II for 3 seconds. The Nethengeic Wither will fire the projectiles at a fast rate to all nearby players.
The Nethengeic Wither will become enraged when below half health. The Nethengeic Wither will have massively increased self healing when enraged. This means that if players do not attack the Nethengeic Wither for a period of time while it is enraged it will return to above half health and become not enraged. While enraged, the Nethengeic Wither will shoot faster moving projectiles more frequently.
When the Nethengeic Wither is below 20% health, it becomes 'cataclysmic'. The healing effect still takes place during the cataclysmic form. While in cataclysmic form, the Nethengeic Wither will massively increase its rate of fire of explosive projectiles. These projectiles will also deal 10 bonus damage in cataclysmic form. Just as in the enraged form, if the healing effect causes the Nethengeic Wither to rise above 20% health, the effect will end.
The Nethengeic Wither has the Attributes of Explosion and Magic Immunity.
Strategies[edit | edit source]
Note: This strategy section is out of date - it does not accomodate for the boss' wither effect. The Nethengeic Wither is an extremely dangerous boss in its alternate forms. It is high advised to be wearing Explosive Armor when fighting it due to the amount of explosive attacks. Projectile protection enchantments are also highly recommended to reduce the damage from the actual shots, especially in cataclysmic form.
The Nethengeic Wither should be fought using ranged weapons (using melee weapons is extremely unrealistic) due to the fact that it will usually be in the air. Even if the Nethengeic Wither is in melee range, it is highly advised to increase the range between the Nethengeic Wither and the players because at short range it is likely it will land every attack.
Drops[edit | edit source]
Nethengeic Wither's drops are exclusive. That means you will get only 1 of all posible items per kill, along with the respective statue of this boss.
When killed, this boss always drops its stone statue version.
Note[edit | edit source]
At our current version, the Nethengeic Wither is strangely neutral to the player but hostile to most other mobs.
