After starting Core Keeper for the first time and creating a new world, players will quickly realize that the game’s namesake core is connected in some way to three different bosses. The player is effectively tasked with killing these three bosses, and until they do so, they are confined to the most interior part of the map by an impenetrable wall.
The player is then faced with tracking down and killing three further bosses, this time outside the wall that had caged them in. Once these three have been killed, however, and the core has been powered, the player will then be tasked with this duty. The abode of Azeos, the Sky Titan, may be found in the first biome that can be reached after passing through that wall. This biome is known as the lush and blooming Azeos’ Wilderness.
Sizes are laying eggs and coming home to roost.
As a free bird, Azeos does not choose to loiter around the area of his own will, in contrast to the three prior bosses, who each remained largely quiescent in their respective lairs. Even though he has a “lair” of sorts, which is more like an open-concept, feather-decorated cavern with minimum usable floor space, he prefers to remain airborne until he is called down by a brilliant item that resembles a beacon.
The object in question is the Large Shiny Glimmering Object, which is an egg-shaped sphere covered in copper, tin, iron, scarlet, and gold. It is referred to as the beacon in question. After defeating the Hive Mother, you will gain access to the crafting recipe for the Ancient Hologram Pod, which is required to create the Glimmering Object. The creation of the Glimmering Object will require a sizeable investment of resources and will only be possible through the use of the Ancient Hologram Pod. It is possible to call Azeos from his lair by placing the Glimmering Object on the ground there, however, this can only be done during the thirty-minute intervals in which his shadow can be seen from above.
The most difficult task for Azeos, however, will be to locate this particular lair. The precise room might be located anywhere around a circle that is the same distance from the wall as it is from the center of the structure. This method entails going on lengthy caving expeditions deep under Azeos’ Wilderness, most frequently in and around the sub-biomes of unbreakable mold. Alternatively, the player can create an Azeos tracker from the Hologram Pod. This method requires the collection of ten Ancient Feathers from the depths of the wilderness, but it will reward the player for their efforts by marking the location of Azeos’s lair on their map.

The Azeos that fight is as light as a feather.
Before the players attempt to call upon Azeos, it is prudent for them to bridge any gaps in the floor using ground blocks or bridges, so that there is sufficient room for all of the players to move around on the floor. If there is not enough space for players to adjust themselves, the fierce battle can start to feel claustrophobic.
The battle against Azeos places a premium on maneuverability and speed due to the fact that the Sky Titan will launch a barrage of lightning strike patterns that can be skilfully sidestepped by the player. His second phase will enhance the speed at which the lightning strikes as well as the strength of those strikes. For this encounter, having high running stats is highly recommended, and you absolutely need to equip yourself with movement-boosting gear, such as the off-hand Swift Feather or prepared dishes based on Bomb Pepper, both of which momentarily improve movement speed.
During the course of the boss fight, Azeos will periodically create crystals around his arena that, if left unmanaged, will restore his health. Since these crystals can only be destroyed with a pickaxe, it is in the player’s best advantage to carry the highest-quality pickaxe they have access to in order to break through these crystals as rapidly as possible.
