Boss Guide - Jungle Abomination
So, before we get into the guide, you've probably seen the not-so-friendly Jungle Abomination boss in most of the promotional material for Minecraft Dungeons, Jungle Awakens.
It's a big brawler, who does some serious damage if you try to go toe-to-toe with it.
We recommend you take a look at our weapons guide for Jungle Awakens, if you're looking for the best tool for the job.

Destroy the Whispers!
When you get the boss arena, you'll see a bunch of whispers spawn around the Jungle Abomination. Start by going around and absolutely nailing them.
What they'll do is try to tie you down with vines, allowing the boss to leisurely waltz over and wipe you out.
You can go with a powerful weapon like a whip here, but it's probably better to go for something with more area damage.

Avoid its hammer attack
This boss is slow...real slow. However, it does have a hammer attack, which has a fairly large damage area.
Try to roll and dodge this (obviously) and take a 'stick and move' approach. In other words, circle around it and try to hit it on its back after it has clobbered the ground.
But don't focus too much on it though, as there will be other foes randomly entering the party.
Kick it while it's down
The Jungle Abomination will enter one of the classic 'boss needs to recover' modes and will be open to attack.
It goes without saying that you should throw everything you've got at it! This is a battle to the death, not some sort of...dance?

If you've been playing the game, you've no doubt come across leepers. They do some massive damage and have a good amount of health.
The Jungle Abomination spawns a couple of these, so you'll have to take care of them quickly.
Leepers may be powerful, but they telegraph their attacks quite blatantly - pounding their chest before they go in for the kill!

The Jungle Abomination tried to hammer you, and it also tried to set his buddies on you - now it'll try something different.
Using its right arm, it will send vines into the floor and they will emerge underneath you.
These are super easy to avoid, just watch out for the purple markers on the floor, and don't get too 'wrapped up' in the other distractions.

Finish the job!
If you've been sticking and moving, and attacking the beast's back, then slowly but surely you will prevail!
The question is...how will you be rewarded on your play-through?
