Useful Info

Alligator snapping turtles are one of the beefiest threats faced in the Shoals. These brutes hit as hard as krakens (though thankfully without the multiple limbs) and have a reaching attack, making them especially deadly if you're distracted by a pack of harpies or merfolk. Fortunately, they move slowly on land, and they are not resistant to any elements or poison.

Tips & Tricks

  • Don't mistake them for regular snapping turtles. While snapping turtles are dangerous enough, these things are even worse.
  • Remember that it's easy to run from slow enemies. There's no sense in dying in melee to something you can easily kite.


  • Prior to 0.19, they could retreat inside their shells at low HP.
