The Incubator is a Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by Abyssion, The Forgotten One. It summons an abyssal monolith at the player's cursor that continually spawns abyssaling crabs to attack enemies. Abyssalings deal additional damage as more swarm an enemy.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical The Incubator has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
