Tintic is a unique monster found in arid biomes. It is also found in underground layers 0b, 5a and 5b, and Ancient Vaults with electric and poison themes.

Tintics can crawl up walls and on ceilings. When they get close enough, they will attempt to hit their target with a 3-burst of web shot (each piece of web shot deals 10 base damage). As Tintics are always aggressive, they can immediately spit without first indicating that they have noticed a threat.

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Electric damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Fire damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Burning.

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 slowing electrified status effect when touched. This variant spews threads at a higher arc than the standard variant, which become electric gas clouds after travelling a short distance.

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