You see this adorable little thing? This mob with the round shell is called a Snurtle, and has a 10% chance of spawning from a Slurtle Mound found in the caves. Upon death, it has a 75% chance of dropping a Snurtle Shell. The Shell has 735 durability, has a 60% armor protection when worn normally, and 100% armor protection when you hide in the shell. Now, that 100% armor protection may sound interesting, but it sounds difficult to acquire given such low spawn rates, right? Don't they only come out after earthquakes or when you the player punch the mound, increasing the risk of you thus accidentally killing the mound eventually? Well, no! With a Fire and Ice Staff, all you'd need to do is light the mound with the Fire Staff and then dowse it with Ice Staff. Keep repeating that, and eventually you'll get a Snurtle! Just make sure that the mound doesn't stay on fire too long, else it'll blow up (like 30+ seconds). It also doesn't take any fire damage when it's lit, so no worries about destroying the mound via HP loss! A basic chest with materials for staves can maybe net you 5-7 shells every day or two, depending on how many Slurtle Mounds are in your world, where they are placed, and your RNG for the Snurtle Shell drop. A better setup with ideal Slurtle Mound placement, roads, easy stave production, unlimited food, and decent RNG can probably net you 6-10+ shells a day. Make sure you're not carrying any rocks or gems, else this won't work as the Slurtles will attack you instead of going back into their mound. But what to do with all these Snurtle Shells you've collected? Allow me to enlighten you on the Way of the Snurtle (in the spoilers). Thanks for reading and thanks to whoever came up with the concept of the Snurtle Shell in the first place at Klei!
I hope that Snurtle Shell Armor will be added in Hamlet, maybe in store, I find it super useful. Its durability could be 1050, as in the basic game, by cons I'm afraid it's too powerful against waves of vampire bats for example. Watch this video of Wes fighting Antlion with, the fight is so classy! ^^
