If it wasn’t for quirky bosses and action-packed boss battles, Terraria would have been rather meh. But, as you explore each region of the game, you come across enemies, bosses, and mini-bosses that keep things interesting.
Queen Slime, just like King Slime, is a completely optional boss. To get ahead in the game, you don’t have to fight her. However, you will get some precious drops if you defeat her.
How to Summon Queen Slime in Terraria
Summoning Queen Slime is not a tedious job. You can summon her in the Hallow by consuming a Gelatin Crystal. You can get this Gelatin Crystal on the Pink Ice Block or the Pearlstone in the underground Hallow area.
All you have to do is use this crystal at any time of the day and at any hour. But remember, you cannot summon the Queen outside of The Hallow.
How to Defeat Queen Slime
Defeating King Slime is rather easy but Queen Slime is smarter and tougher. She won’t keep bouncing in vain. She can teleport next to you and give you a nasty surprise.
Queen Slime can summon minions like Crystal Slimes, Heavenly Slimes, and Bouncy Slimes that come after you. After jumping up and down, she pauses for a few seconds and fires six Regal Gels. Instead of firing Gels, she might choose to stomp you into a pulp.
Considering all this, your best strategy would be to target Queen Slime, dodge her attacks, and slay the minions.
Best Weapons to Beat Queen Slime
To defeat Queen Slime, you can use a weapon like the Daedalus Stormbow paired with Holy Arrows. To move around quickly, try to get hold of some winged boots.
Distracting enemies will be easier if you place disconnected platforms. Finally, the Shield of Cthulhu will protect you against the Queen, but not her minions.
Best Armor for the battle with Queen Slime
As far as armor is concerned, you should go for the Palladium Armor. This is because the Slimes and Gels are likely to hit you. You might get stomped on. Palladium Armor has a Rapid Healing buff, which will be useful for reviving you.
Other than this, make sure you place random platforms all over the arena to jump and dodge across!
