Behavior

Phase 1

8 Tentacles will circle the pool of deep water that the Hermit God is hidden in, the tentacles will chase players and fire bullets in a circular pattern if players get too close to them. Hermit Minions will be present chasing players with paralyzing attacks.

Phase 2

Once all 8 Tentacles are killed, the Hermit God will rise from his pool, become vulnerable and attack players with a stream of blinding ink blobs. 8 Whirlpools will be spawned and will circle the Hermit God, firing radial shots. More Hermit Minions will be spawned on the shore as well.

Phase 3

The Hermit God will shoot Octoblast bullets a couple of times along the cardinal and intermediate directions. This is followed by the Hermit God’s eyes turning red and the boss firing several waves of Deep Sea Blasts at the nearest player. Then the Hermit God will sink into the water and phase 1 will repeat. Whirlpools will disappear and Tentacles will be respawned at the start of this phase .

Tips and Strategies

Warrior tips
Warrior is one of the best classes to do Hermit God, and this event is recommended for obtaining the coveted Helm of the Juggernaut. (Knight can solo it too). With 40+ def, warrior can easy kill all Hermit Minions and the Hermit Tentacles, at Phase 2 & 3 don’t worry about whirlpools (if you have >42 def they only do 7 dmg) and shoot the Hermit God, Crystal Sword is maybe the best sword to use at phase 2. At phase 3 to do heavier damage use a Skysplitter Sword OR Sword of Acclaim.

Knight tips
The knight can stun and keep stunning Hermit God at phase 3, use a Tier 4+ shield or snake skin if you don’t have a Tier 4 shield. The knight can have +60 def if maxed so Hermits would be more easy soloing than warriors. Ogmurs are also useful, but the stun is vital if soloing to prevent accidental death caused by paralysis from the minions.
