Harken Scythe - Harbinger - 2

The Harbinger in an NPC Village.

The Harbinger is a hostile mob that looks similar to the Grim Reaper, with a scythe made of bones. It appears not to have a face or legs. However, it is a very powerful enemy.


The Harbinger is a difficult mob to kill, due to its 160 health. It has teleportation powers; it will use these when hit by a projectile, or by taking quite a bit of damage. It has the ability to go invisible. However, its Soul Reaper is still visible, making it possible to still attack while it is in this mode. When fighting the Harbinger, it will spawn three to four soul-like floating cubes when going invisible. When these are touched by the Harbinger, or by using the Essence Keeper or Essence Vessel, they will turn into any type of Spectral Mobs. If you are killed by the Harbinger, a Spectral Miner spawns in your place. However, these soul cubes that you touch may randomly spawn a Spectral Miner, without a certain cause of death. The Harbinger despawns at sunrise, similar to other night-time mobs, unless it has some sort of shade. Plus, it seems that Harbinger(s) spawn rate is common during the night at a Mushroom Island Biome.


When killed, the Harbinger drops at least one Abyss Fragment. On rare occasions it drops a Soul Reaper or Essence Vessel. It can also drop "Green Soul".
