The Hespori is a unique boss found within the Farming Guild that requires careful strategy and preparation to overcome. In this guide, we'll provide you with all the information you need to know about this formidable boss, including its mechanics, recommended gear and inventory setups, as well as tips and tricks to maximize your chances of success.
Before taking on the Hespori, you'll need to meet the following requirements:
- 65 Farming
- Completion of the Making Friends with My Arm quest
To begin the fight with the Hespori, head to the Farming Guild located in Hosidius. Enter the guild and make your way to the northern section where you'll find the Hespori patch. Simply interact with the plant to initiate the boss fight.
The Hespori has a few unique mechanics that you should be aware of before engaging in battle:
Fungi Sprouting: During the fight, the Hespori will periodically sprout fungi around the arena. These mushrooms must be avoided, as they deal damage if stepped on. Keep an eye out for their appearance and move away from them promptly.
Healing Crystals: At certain health intervals, the Hespori will summon healing crystals that restore its health. These crystals should be destroyed as quickly as possible to prevent the boss from recovering too much.
Roots: The Hespori occasionally summons roots that can bind you in place, rendering you unable to move. To break free from the roots, simply click on them or use a knife on them.
Special Attack: The Hespori has a special attack where it will launch spores at you, causing damage over time. To minimize this damage, stay as far away from the boss as possible when you see it preparing for the attack.
