Quartz Gastrocin is an enemy in Outward.


A variant of a Gastrocin with quartz crystals growing out of it.


The Quartz Gastrocins only use their spells, they do not have a melee attack. The spells are wide AoE blasts so it can be difficult to fight multiple of them with melee, you will need to move around a lot or make use of magic or ranged weapons.


  • Shoots several blasts which deal 50 Decay Decay damage, 140 Impact.png Impact, and inflict Plague (49% buildup).
  • Blasts which deal 30 Frost Frost damage, 80 Impact.png Impact and inflicts Chill (49% buildup).
  • Retreats into its shell, gaining +25 to all Damage Resistances, healing 50 health instantly and continuing to regenerate for a few seconds. This also creates a blast which deals 3 Decay Decay and 3 Frost Frost damage, and inflicts Slow Down (20%) and Hampered (10%) every 0.5 seconds for 3.5 seconds.
