Description[edit | edit source]

Tar Minions are miniature figures made of tar with glowing red eyes and dripping faces. They can only be created using the above recipe, and exist in the player's inventory as a Tarminion item until thrown by right-clicking. The Tar Minion will be launched in the direction that they were thrown and will land in mob form, whereupon it will proceed to attack any nearby hostile mobs using melee. It will also inflict a Slowness (Slowness.png) effect on these mobs. However, they are vulnerable to attack and will despawn if not already killed after 6 minutes; upon either of these occurrences, it will cause a small tar explosion, dealing damage to all nearby enemies and also inflicting Slowness, as one last strike.

Tar Minions can be applied with Amulets, giving them a Middle Gem Circle modifier that directly affects the minion's own attacks and the player they are assigned to while they are alive. The number of amulets that they can equip at once can be extended with an Amulet Slot, and amulets can be taken off of them by shift right-clicking them.

Reanimating[edit | edit source]

If they are killed or despawn, Tar Minions will leave behind an Inanimate Tarminion item. This item can be put through the Animator to recreate the original Tarminion item, like so:
