Magistrates of Death are levitating, legless wizard-like enemies found in the Astrolab that summon Screaming Skulls by reading from a magic book. They are exclusive to the Rise of the Giant DLC.

Behavior[]

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, 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.

Moveset[]

Skull summon

  • Description: Fires a Screaming Skull which moves forwards, covering a large vertical area.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • The Screaming Skulls are separate entities from the Magistrate, however they do not count towards the kill counter.
