Shellbugs cannot be killed by conventional means, however they can be mined for Shellbug Chitin and sometimes a random gem. After three pieces of chitin have been mined, the shellbug dies. The chitin can be used to make a Shellbug Helmet.
Forgotten Vale CaveEdit
Behind a hidden door that can be accessed by pulling a rope found at the top of a ramp in the main chamber.
This one is hidden exceptionally well. A small gap on the right-hand side of the ramp, under 3 Giant Mushrooms leads to the Shellbug.
- If mining is stopped after collecting two pieces of chitin, the Shellbug does not die. They also respawn, so three may be collected from each Shellbug every ten days of game-time.
- They are stationary and do not have any other interactions besides being mined.
