The Lavae is a mob added into the Reign of Giants official release of Don't Starve Together Beta. It has 500 health and spawns from the Dragonfly. Upon death, they drop four to five items that burst into flames and damage the player. Anything that comes into direct contact with a Lavae bursts into flame.
Frozen lavae will die from the freeze and drop 1-5 rocks; this is a good source of getting unlimited rocks. Be sure to keep a dragonfly around, but not too close or this will become a major threat to the player.
Killing lavae will leave a good amount of ashes from their burnt drop, making it easier to get the dragonfly back to sleep.
- Lavae will lose interest in a player who travels through a worm hole, and will not reacquire a new target until attacked by a player again.
- Lavae will not target AI even if attacked.
- Lavae bug out campfires that they light, resulting in permenant fires until server restart.
- A Debug-spawned lavae will not attack the player in many cases
