Head up these stairs.

As soon as you're on the starting platform, head East and cross the bridge.

Keep in mind there is a chance for you to fail on obtaining an egg from the Hydra Nests.

Many of these Hydra Nests can be found on the first and second floor, and one on the third floor.

Here are some examples of their locations:

Gathering the Items: Slobber[edit | edit source]

Once you have obtained a Hydra Egg (it does not have to be from these locations) you will have to loot Slobber from Dryads.

When you have obtained a Slobber from killing Dryads, use the Slobber on Giant Glimmering Mushroom Caps.

Here are a few examples of where you can find these Mushroom Caps:

Giant cap 3.png

Summoning the Mini Boss[edit | edit source]

Gather up a few Slobbers, they have a chance to fail when used on the Giant Glimmering Mushroom Caps.

Here are pictures resembling a successful Slobber use and a failed Slobber use.
Enhanced slobber.png

Slobber fail.png

Keep on attempting until you get a Slobber that succeeds.

In your inventory you will receive an Enhanced Slobber in place of your Slobber.

You only need one Enhanced Slobber.

With your Enhanced Slobber, use it on the Hydra Egg you looted from the Hydra's Nest.

Once you apply the Enhanced Slobber onto your Hydra Egg, you will receive a message saying that the egg has rotted.
Rotted egg.png

With the rotted egg you want to apply it to the Hydra Nests that you previously looted the Hydra Egg from.

The egg has a chance to fail on spawning the Glooth Horror (the mini boss you have to kill to complete the mission).

If it does fail, you get the Rotted Egg back in your inventory to try again.
Glooth horror.png

When you do succeed on implanting the Rotten Egg onto a Hydra's Nest you will spawn the Glooth Horror.

Failed rotted egg.png

Simply kill it and you will receive a Violet Crystal Shard in your inventory.

When using this item on a Lab Crabs or Mutants corpse it will fill the potion by 2-4%.

Once you have filled the potion to 100%, this message will appear above your character.

Run passed the abandoned ship, and a bit North of running past it you will see a small cave entrance on the West wall.

Head into this entrance and you will be descended into a room full of Gold.

Lab crab gold loc2.png

Most people do not know which tile to use to fill up their gold, so when asked I always mention this spot.

There are multiple spots in the room to fill up your potion with Gold, not just this one.

Once you have filled up your potion with the Gold, this message will appear above your character.

Lab crab gold loc3.png

Summoning the Mini Boss[edit | edit source]

To find the proper lake to release the potion's contents, head back to the start of the spawn (where you came down the descending staircase).

Head North of the spawn and you will run into a hole, use a shovel and hop down.

Now head as far West as you can, once you have hopped down the first hole.

You will have to hop down another hole.

To exit this room, run South then East and walk through that teleporter.

Reattempting At Obtaining Helix Fossil[edit | edit source]

You will be teleported back to where you killed the mini boss at.

If you did not receive a Helix Fossil from your first seashell, you may attempt only once more.

Simply apply the Interdimensional Potion onto the lake again to spawn the mini boss, hop into the teleporter, and open the seashell again.

If you still did not receive a seashell, then you will have to wait the entire mission's cooldown to try again.
