Taroni are a unique monster found in Tar minor biomes, underground Tarpits, and electric Ancient Vaults. When provoked it rolls a ball of tar and throws it at the player, dealing 10 base damage and giving the player the tar effect.

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Fire damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Poison damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Poisoned or Tar (Debuff).

Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the status effect burning when touched. This variant walks slower but throws an explosive fireball instead of a tarball.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.
