Useful Info

Twisters generally only occur as the temporary result of powerful Air Magic miscast effects, though some can be found outside the walls of the Cloud Mages' Chambers. They are permanently confused creatures which cannot attack but generate a Tornado around themselves at all times, which can do significant amounts of damage to anything caught in it.

Twisters are resistant to the spell Tornado.

Tips & Tricks

  • Twisters have insane amounts of health and are resistant to all forms of magic. On top of that, they're worth no experience. Just keep your distance from them and they'll eventually go away.

History

Prior to 0.22, Twisters had wind resistance instead of tornado resistance.
