Stalagmite Pincers
+90% Emerald Damage
5% Genetic Split Cooldown Reduction
Maximum Level: 10

  • Increases Emerald Damage granted by mutations by 90% per level.
  • The very first level when you unlock gives you a double bonus, so you start with 180%
  • Mutation damage adds up into one big bonus, so adding this 90% to an existing bonus of 500% would total 590%.
  • The genes Mutation Infusion multiply this coloured damage by 10% per gene, to a maximum of 110%.
  • The Gene Lab's Mutation Specialization further add to this multiplication by 5% per level, with no maximum,
  • Decreases the cooldown of ability Genetic Split by 5% per level of mutation.
  • The default cooldown is 50 minutes (3000 seconds)
  • When maxed out, you would have 990% mutation damage bonus to Emerald crabs and queens (multiplied by bonuses described above), and the cooldown of Genetic Split would be cut in half.


Genetic Split is the most powerful ability for increasing your overall damage, so you want it running as long as possible and as often as possible. By default this has one of the longest cooldowns at 50 minutes, so this mutation is definitely worthwhile. With this mutation along with its cousin Cerulean Carapace at level 490 you can have "Permanent Genetic Split".
