Sand Elementals attack by summoning 3 'Sandnados' randomly around the general location of the player. The distance between them varies, and they remain stationary for their lifespan. Sand Elementals can't travel through blocks, and they fly in a non-linear pattern. They attempt to avoid the player, as their main attack is the sandnado.
Sand Elementals are detected by the 生命体分析机.
- The "Sandnados" cannot pass through blocks. Standing underneath a platform of solid block will make the Elemental unable to hit you with its Sandnado.
- Using the 混沌传送杖 to teleport to the other side of the Sandnados may be useful; however, since it inflicts the 减益 混乱状态 after repeated use, be careful how often you use it.
- The Sand Elemental is the only 困难模式 沙漠 enemy that has no 生物群落 variations and takes an appearance similar to the basic desert color scheme; it will spawn in any kind of Desert during a 沙尘暴, including 腐化, 猩红 and 神圣.
