Purple Slimes, also known as Purple Sludge, are monsters that can be found in Skull Cavern. There is a Monster Eradication Goal of killing 1,000 Slimes for the Adventurer’s Guild. Slimes may also be raised in your Slime Hutch or raised through use of the Slime Incubator.
There are male and female Slimes. Male Slimes have a tail, while females do not. Males have 25% more health and +1 damage compared to their female counterpart. There is a small chance for Slimes to mate in The Mines and create a baby slime, which has the same stats as its parents.
Slimes will either slowly jump towards you, or use a charged jump to cover a much bigger distance. You can predict their charged attack by looking for the animation, in which they push themselves almost flat to the ground. If they use this attack near a wall or other impassable object, they will bounce off of it. Sometimes after being attacked, Slimes will become enraged, their eyes will glow red and they will move much faster. If you’re hit by a Slime, you will get the Slimed debuff, which lowers your speed for 2.5-3 seconds.
The best way to kill Slimes is to try to push them against a wall or into a corner so they cannot jump away or use their charged attack. You can block with your sword to prevent damage from their normal and charged attacks. If you plan on farming Slimes, it’s a good idea to try to complete the Monster Eradication Goal to get the Slime Charmer Ring, which will make you invulnerable to all Slime damage.
