  • Though Aural Decory works on more enemy types than the Alluring Skull, it often fails to work on larger groups of enemies that are normally distract-able with it (only catching the attention of a select few). The Alluring Skull works more consistently on large groups, and is therefore recommended for the enemies that it works on.

Affected by Aural Decoy:

  • All human-sized NPCs+ (excluding invading phantoms, blacksmiths and Marvellous Chester)
  • Most enemies

Fully Immune:
