Momentus Difficulty issues

  1. I just took out a momentus on difficulty 5. When it died it didnt drop anything cool, and it said Overall difficulty 4. I hadnt died through the fight, nobody was helping/watching, why did it count as difficulty 4?
  2. Did you spawn the Momentus, or was it already there?
  3. I think Momentus was trying to insult you. Don't take it personally, he's just a bad loser :p.

  4. If you found one already around, someone else likely Hit it on lower difficulty
  5. Nobody else hit it. It spawned far out in the wild by my gold farm and I saw it spawn originally.
  6. If it took any other damage (drowning/suffocation/cactus/another mob hitting it/etc.) that will lower the difficulty.

  7. Generally speaking your effective diff. will usually end somewhat less than your original one. Mostly caused by, as others mentioned, it taking more damage. Even a flaming sword can achieve this, or Momentus not being able to fully reach you ("warning, that mob has trouble reachign you"), etc.

    I more than often fight these at 8, die a lot and end up with an eff. difficulty of 7 or sometimes 6.
  8. Do poison potions count? One mighta hit it
  9. Could me, I assume as much but I'm not fully sure. I do know that throwing TNT at it can cause this to happen :)
  10. Next time I will try without a poison potion.
