Fenumus, First of the Night is a unique boss located in Fenumus' Lair. She is one of the four Spirit Beasts and one of the First Ones.

Portals to Fenumus' Lair can be crafted via a beastcrafting recipe using the Fenumal Hybrid Arachnid and any three yellow beasts.

  • Tail Spike: Its basic attacks are ranged, throwing a somewhat slow dart with a low attack speed.

  • Ground Stab: Stabs the ground, spreading green webs which slow by 50% and deal nearly 2000 chaos damage per second for 12 seconds. A web also always appears under the character; this one does not spread.
  • Hallucinate: Makes the edge of the screen blurry, other effects unknown, lasts 5 seconds.
  • Summon Spiders: Often summons at least 6 scorpion/spider minions.
  • Chaos Spark Spiders: During the 2nd phase, every 12 seconds, 4 webbed stones will pulsate green before unleashing a swarm of little green spiders that deal chaos damage.


Chaos resistance goes a long way against Fenumus.

Fenumus has a low attack speed and only attacks from range, meaning if you continuously move around, its dart attack will miss you.

Spit Mortar and Ground Stab both have a wind-up, so you can be ready to dodge them. When you see the boss preparing ground stab, move away from it and continue moving to dodge the web appearing at your feet. For Spit Mortar, it'll shoot in the direction it's facing, so try to get behind it. The projectile's first few forks won't be too large, but the later ones will practically engulf half the room.

At 50% life, you will be webbed and teleported to an underground mine. Any ground effects or totems will disappear, as well as debuffs on Fenumus.

The webbed stones will unleash their chaos spark when the 3rd green pulse ends, allowing you to easily position yourself to avoid getting shotgunned; single sparks do not deal much damage.

Do note that poisons will last longer than usual, which will notably delay energy shield recharge.
