The Saladmander is a neutral Mob exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It is found on the Lunar Island, specifically the Lunar Baths Biome.

Brain.png Behavior[edit | edit source]

Saladmanders will claim a Hot Spring as their own, and will occasionally fall asleep near it. If another Saladmander tries to approach a claimed Hot Spring, its owner will run towards them and the two will attempt to intimidate the other into submission by hissing at each other for some time. Shortly after, the "loser" will run away while the "winner" claims the spring. If a Hot Spring has had a Bath Bomb thrown into it, a Saladmander near it will become hot enough to turn ripe shortly.

The player can speed up the ripening process by setting any heat source near the Salamander, for example, a Campfire.

If the player has a Thermal Stone that is at least somewhat hot within their inventory, Saladmanders will hiss at each other until one leaves, and from then they will begin to follow the player until they fall asleep or the thermal stone loses its heat.

Spear.png Fighting[edit | edit source]

Saladmanders both Ripe and Unripe have both high health and high damage. However they are slow and have a short range. They can not be stunlocked, but can be kited with 2-3 strikes. Their propensity for sleep can be used to land a few hits. They don't assist each other, so one can attack a Saladmander even if there are other Saladmanders around without having to fear a group attack. Upon death it drops one Leafy Meat in normal form and one Dragon Fruit in Ripe form. Ripe Saladmanders have a flame attack that can set things next to them on fire.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]
