The Borean Strider is a surface snow biome Hardmode boss that spawns during Hardmode Blizzards. It drops one of its five weapons when defeated and has its own associated trophy and mask.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Borean Strider can spawn on its own as long as the player is within a Hardmode Blizzard, but its spawn can be expedited with a Strider's Tear. Its presence is indicated with the message "An eight legged menace is prowling the tundra..."

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Borean Strider leaps around the battle field much like slimes do, as well as unleashing various frost attacks at the player such as:

  • Sending out frosty shockwaves after every hop that chills and damages players.
  • Shooting a high velocity icicle attack that has a chance to inflict Frostburn and freezes the player on hit.
  • Releasing a crystal wave of icy bursts that deal significant damage and freezes hit players for one second.
  • Upon reaching 50% life, the cracking abdomen of the Borean Strider will rupture, spawning a set of Borean Hoppers.
  • While below 50% life, the Borean Strider will spawn Borean Hoppers and Borean Mytes in an alternating pattern.
