Broodmother Lysrix Fight

When fighting the Broodmother Lysrix, she will attempt to attack you from afar with her poison spit attacks (multiple projectiles) which fire starting from one side to another.

She will also attempt to close the gap between you and your tames and attack you up close, which makes her spit attack even deadlier due to multiple projectiles.

Lysrix will also attempt to use her webs to slow down your movement speed, making it almost impossible to escape at times.

While fighting, Broodmother Lysrix will spawn Araneos which will start fighting alongside her until they are killed.

Tips

  • The Broodmother can be quite aggressive and you must remain on your tame to ensure your survival unless you are well equipped.
  • Bringing tames with large amounts of health can help absorb the damage from Lysrix’s attacks, allowing your other tames to safely deal damage.
  • Avoid getting swarmed by the Araneo by having tames that are large or can deal damage in a large area to clear them out.
