Jadeplume Terrorshroom is a newly-released normal boss along with the introduction of Sumeru. It may seem intimidating at first, but luckily, slaying it is not much of a hassle. In fact, it is not as menacing as the rest of the bosses that are currently in the game.
This giant fungal beast provides the necessary materials to ascend Dendro characters like Tighnari and Collei.
So, without further ado, let’s start with the only Jadeplume Terrorshroom guide you’ll ever need, including its location and strategies you can apply to defeat it.
How to find Jadeplume Terrorshrom?
Jadeplume Terrorshroom is located at the top-left part of Vissudha Field. Some players may find it challenging to find its exact location at first as it is hidden underground. But don’t fret as there is an easy way to reach the area.
From the Statue of the Seven, walk towards this spot near the Jadeplume Terrorshroom icon as shown in the map. From this, a wormhole will be seen along with a four-leaf sigil.
Stand near the wormhole and use the Four-leaf Sigil by pressing T (PC) or its icon (mobile). After entering, you will arrive at the boss area, with a teleport waypoint waiting on the side. Be sure to activate it first before joining the fray.
Jadeplume Terrorshroom can be easily defeated without any condition similar to Regisvines, Hypostases and other normal bosses. It just stands on his feet, gracefully striking enemies with melee attacks and its spores. Fortunately, he is not that complicated to take down.
Jadeplume Terrorshroom can be defeated in a nice and traditional way, just by landing attacks and abilities, while simultaneously dodging its attack. But in this case, Dendro characters are not recommended as your main source of damage because Jadeplume Terrorshroom has higher resistance (80%) to dendro than the rest of the elements (25%).
Executing the Jadeplume Terrorshroom is going to be a piece of cake for some players. But there are several techniques that you may also apply instead to quickly finish the job. Knowledge about the new dendro reactions may come in handy in this fight, so make sure to check out our Dendro Reactions guide.
Similar to the rest of the fungus, Jadeplume Terrorshroom gets activated after receiving electro attacks. It will become noticeable as you go on with an apparent increase in the Fury Bar directly located just below its hp bar. Electro attacks contribute by 2%, but applying Catalyze reactions such as Quicken (Dendro + Electro), Aggravate (Quicken + Electro) and Spread (Quicken + Dendro) increases it by 15% instead. However, adding any Pyro attacks may reset your progress by reducing it by 34% for each attack.
But what happens after charging the bar to the maximum? What does it do? Well, it makes your life easier. Here’s how.
After reaching full fury, Jadeplume Terrorshroom will surround itself with a dendro aura before discharging either of these special attacks.
- Spore Rain: Unleashes multiple missile-like spores that chase down its target. It can be dodged by running sideways.
- Furious Charge: Charges to its target twice, dealing dendro damage on hit. Like the first one, dash to either side as it only runs towards a single and straight direction.
- Rapid Pecks: Uses its beak to swing rapidly at its target dealing dendro damage up to four times. The last attack is the easiest one to dodge but be careful not to get caught inside its range.
After this special attack, Jadeplume Terrorshroom undergoes paralysis for about 15 seconds giving players ample time to nuke it down with their best shots. In its stunned state, Jadeplume Terrorshroom lowers its resistance to all elements by 25%.
To put simply, activation quickens the job by immobilizing and shredding its resistance.
Heading for this route is not a good suggestion unless you’re in for a challenge. Burning reaction takes place by combining pyro and dendro, allowing it to become Scorched. Going for a pyro team or character is not recommended in this case as it further complicates the battle.
Jadeplume Terrorshroom will shoot three spores in an attempt to return to its normal state. This will inflict AOE dendro damage upon explosion and soon turn into Floating Dendro Fungi. Four of these can co-exist simultaneously. They may look harmless but approach with caution as these Fungi will also be in their scorched state, ultimately enhancing their damage.
Fortunately, these spores can be destroyed by pyro attacks before it turns into a fungus.
Who are the best characters against Jadeplume Terrorshroom?
As a rule of thumb, the best way to take down Jadeplume Terrorshroom is to bring at least one Electro and Dendro character.
Jadeplume Terrorshroom has no immunity against any element, but it receives less damage from dendro attacks. That said, it is not optimal to use a dendro character as your main source of damage. But, they are still worth bringing as it accelerates the activation process. Basically, dendro’s role here in this case is to catalyze the reaction.
Also, your main DPS does not necessarily have to be an electro. In fact, you can bring anyone aside from Dendro and use electro/dendro characters solely for activation. For instance, you may use Lisa and Collei to paralyze it before switching to Eula or other DPS characters.
What materials can you get from Jadeplume Terrorshroom?
After successfully defeating, players will have to spend 40 resins to claim the reward. This will grant you Mora, Companionship exp, Character exp, Artifact sets, Adventure exp, Nagadus Emerald and Majestic Hooked Beak. Majestic Hooked Beak is a requirement for Tighnari and Collei character ascension.
