Fighting Rockwell

Rockwell will be invulnerable as long as his tentacles are standing and you will need to destroy them before you can deal any damage to him.

Once the tentacles have been destroyed, Rockwell will become stunned, making him vulnerable to attacks.

Repeat destroying his tentacles and dealing damage to him until you completely deplete all of his life and he will die.

After taking some damage, Rockwell will attempt to use a shock attack that has an area of effect and will dismount you, avoid this by keeping your distance or stunning him.

It is a good idea to bring a Charge Lantern or a light pet as there will be Nameless that spawn in the fight and they can be annoying if you are focusing on Rockwell.

Watch out for Rockwell’s projectiles which he shoots out as they deal a bit of damage in an area but these can be destroyed if shot at.

The arena is not radiated, so you can equip whichever set of armor is best for your defense, don’t forget to bring ranged weapons as well.

Tips

  • It is a good idea to bring strong tames as the Nameless can be a distraction and may prevent you from fighting Rockwell properly
  • Try to avoid getting hit by Rockwell’s projectiles as these can damage your shoulder-mounted pets, possible removing your way of defeating the nameless
  • Rockwell is easily defeated if you can focus on destroying his tentacles quickly to deal damage to him.
  • The area of effect shock attack that Rockwell does will dismount you, which could get you killed by the Nameless, be sure to have tames that can protect you.
