General information Edit
In 2016 Ghost Creatures like Ghost Mirus spawned during the event "Haunted Nights" that started on October 13th and ended on November 1st, but were re-instated once more for a short period afterwards to coincide with the "Festive" Season event around Christmas 2016.
They returned for the Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign event starting on October 18th 2017 with different loot than before and different hit points ever since.
During event-times players could obtain Halloween items from Ghost Mirus by killing them. Ghost Mirus could not be tamed, even when spawning "naturally".
During event-times Ghost Creatures like Ghost Mirus usually show up at night times (starting around 10:37-10:47 PM) within a certain proximity around player characters. Different from all other Ghost Creatures, Ghost Mirus usually only spawn underground on the Stalactite layer or more rarely on the Fossil layer.
When hit by sunlight, Ghost Mirus that have reached the surface, will start to burst into blue flames (usually in the morning that dawns around 5:12 AM) and will perish even more quickly than common Night Creatures do without leaving any trace (no Ghost Loot bag).
During event-times Ghost Mirus might very rarely also spawn on artificial biomes and on Stalactite layer and/or Fossil layer blocks that have been placed further underground; of course only during night-times.
Ghost Mirus can be spawned on Mob Spawners. Please note that Mob Spawners are not intended to let you "farm" infinite animal loot. Instead they are Machines that will spawn specific Creatures as a fighting challenge, intended to be used within Adventures created for other players to play.
Creatures spawned on Mob Spawners do not drop any loot and cannot be tamed. However, Adventure creators can provide the first Creature that will be spawned with customary loot that other players will then receive when killing this Creature.
Player-spawned Ghost Mirus will burn and perish in sunlight (which can cause them to drop Loot Bags with all the stuff inside that players have put into the Mob Spawner inventory) and will flee from player characters that are approaching just like Ghost Mirus that "naturally" spawn during events.
Ghost Mirus are not aggressive towards player characters. All Ghost Creatures are flight animals, but it seems Ghost Mirus are less easily scared by player characters than other ghosts. They will still flee when player characters start to attack them, and will then behave much like Keepas, not defending themselves in any way.
Ghost Mirus are very well visible in the darkness even from a great distance. Since update R47 they are not bright white anymore but more blueish though, and they do not illuminate the area.
Ghost Mirus seem to have 100 health points and since update R47 in October 2017 (Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign Update) based on tests, they require 3 hits with any kind of weapon to be killed, no matter if with a Twig, a Wood Sword, a Stone Sword, an Obsidian Sword, an Iron Sword, a Diamond Sword or a Lumite Sword.
Since Ghost Mirus are flight animals, it is not necessary to circle them during combat, since they won't fight back at all. If and as long as ghost creatures are trapped in dark places, they will not perish, but sunlight can kill them and prevent them from dropping Ghost Loot bags.
Ghost Mirus usually won't leave their caves though, so even after spawning at night they are able to stay alive as long as player characters stay close and won't kill them.
Like all other Creatures, Ghost Mirus can climb one or two blocks upwards, but not three blocks or higher without any steps, not even on worlds with low gravity (while your player character can use low gravity to jump up 5 blocks or more). However trapping strategies won't work well currently because of the glitching bug.
You can however throw Explosives or throwable items at Ghost Mirus. Armor-Piercing Bombs are the most effective ranged weapons in general, followed by Explosive Bombs, Poison Bombs and Rimecones. Throwing Globs of Goo can only slow these Creatures down.
Better do not throw Corrupt Bombs, Freeze Bombs or Fire Bombs at any Creatures, since these Explosives inflict only a rather small amount of damage, and if Creatures should die from the elemental damage over time that these Bombs deal within a small radius around their point of impact, then the dying Creatures will not drop any Loot Bags (in case of Ghost Mirus Ghost Loot bags).
Creatures can also drown when being trapped in/under liquids for too long, and will not drop any Loot Bags / Ghost Loot bags in this case, as drowning counts as a natural death. Also traps that use heat, cold or corruption to kill Creatures will not provide you with their loot.

Family members Edit
Other Ghost Creatures appearing during event times like Halloween:
The Ghost Miru has several relatives:
- aggressive common green Mirus that spawn on Fossil layer blocks and Stalactite layer blocks in the darkness during day and night, and can such mainly be encountered in Caves, but also might emerge from there occasionally and then roam the surface, mainly during night-times
- aggressive blue Arctic Mirus that spawn on Snow, Ice and on or near Peakstone blocks in darkness, mainly during night-times. Such they can most often be found on snow clad Mountains, on frozen Oceans or frozen plains, in Taigas, in snowy parts of Tundras and Canyons (more rarely) and any other cold area
- aggressive and strong violet Corrupted Mirus that spawn on any type of Corrupted Blocks in darkness, no matter if day or night
Ghost Mirus won't "replace" ordinary Mirus nor Arctic Mirus. Common Mirus or Arctic Mirus also do not transform into Ghost Mirus. Ghost Mirus can appear additionally to other Night Creatures "naturally" during certain event-times around Halloween and Christmas.
