The Wisp Queen is one of the three bosses to spawn in The Forest.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
The Wisp Queen starts as normal sized wisp, but white. After the player gets close, the Wisp Queen will grow in size and start her attacks.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
|Wisp Spawn||The Wisp Queen slowly spawns a spinning ring of wisps that can do damage and block attacks.|
|Wisp Throw||The Wisp Queen starts to 'throw' the wisps in the wisp ring towards the player. Note: The ring of wisps will stop spinning before this attack|
|Wisp Renew||The Wisp Queen renews her ring of wisps entire over a short duration.|
|Wisp Launch||The Wisp Queen launches all of the wisps in her ring in all directions, then initiates Wisp Spawn to renew the ring.|
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Be careful when fighting in melee range, as wisps will deal a large amount of damage in succession. It's best to fight it from long range. However, one method one can use is trying to proc continues Freezes on the Wisp Queen. The Wisp Queen cannot summon more wisps while it is frozen.
Because of its ability to phase through terrain, it is best to fight the Wisp Queen on a fall through platform instead of any thick terrain that does not allow fall-through. This is because the Wisp Queen will always keep distance as far out from her so her wisps will hit, but her full body remains too far away from the player for its melee attacks. Therefore, try to keep the Wisp Queen in a position that you can easily reach its center to attack it (if using melee attacks/freeze proc strategy).
Also, once it fires off all its wisps, if you have the spell charm you can charm it and it will continue to summon wisps that damage it until it dies.
Champion Variant[edit | edit source]
The champion variant has a magenta coloration, with additional properties tied its wisps.
The wisps are connected via electricity to the boss. These tethers deal lightning and fire damage to the player on contact, with intersecting tethers at the center of the boss dealing massive damage. The tethers are blocked by terrain.
