Magistrates of Death are levitating, legless wizards who summon minions (Screaming Skulls) by reading from a magic book. Magistrates of Death are only found in the Astrolab with 5 BSC active.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Magistrates are generally defensive enemies, who summon Screaming Skulls to shield them from the player, as well as to attack him. Two Screaming Skulls are summoned on the left and right of the Magistrate of Death, and start floating away from it, generating a vertical laser above and below them. This laser can damage the player and give him Malaise points, but can be rolled through as well as parried. The Screaming Skulls can also be parried with a shield. Because of this ability, it can be hard to reach the Magistrate itself to kill it, especially with melee weapons.

In addition to their attack, Magistrates of Death can dash quickly far away from the player when they are within close range, which further complicates matters when using a melee build.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Magistrates of Death were added with the v1.2 update, aka Rise of the Giant DLC in March 2019.
