Garnet Strand
Cost: 3 Gene Points, Max: 2

  • Causes a shadow crab to spawn when a Garnet crab dodges.
  • The shadow crab deals 1x AVERAGE CRAB DAMAGE. It does not crit.
  • See this article for more information on the average stats
  • Does not work with Shadow Swarm crabs - only tapped crabs and queens. AppX confirmed that this is intended and is not a bug.
  • Having both genes does not appear to spawn a second crab, so why there are two of these is a mystery.

Should I Get Them?

Not unless they are on a path to something better. Even if the shadow crab could crit, you're only talking a handful of crabs (at most) doing double damage.
