Slay the Spire Wiki

Mind Bloom is an event found exclusively in Act 3. Your imagination manifests into reality. In this ephemeral moment, all your wishes can come true, though not without consequences.


Numbers in parentheses are for Ascension 15 or higher.

  • [I am War] Fight a Boss from Act 1. Obtain a Rare Relic, normal rewards and 50 (25) gold.

The first option will always be [I am War], and the second option will always be [I am Awake]. However, the third option will either be [I am Rich] on floors 35 - 40 or [I am Healthy] on floor 41 and above.

If [I am War] is selected, Pantograph.png Pantograph and SlaversCollar.png Slaver's Collar will work as if it is another Boss encounter.


While walking and traversing through the chaos of the Spire, your thoughts suddenly begin to feel very... real...
Imaginings of monsters and riches begin to manifest themselves into reality.
The sensation is quickly fleeting. What do you do?
I am Rich / I am Healthy
Can it really be this easy?
I am Awake
Everything makes sense now.
The lack of memories, the ascent, the Ancient One.
This is the way it always was.
This is the way it always will be.
All will be forgotten again soon...


  • [I am War] is generally the safest option. It gives the player a random Rare Relic and 50 Gold with little cost; by the time the player is in Act 3, their deck will typically be strong enough to slaughter the Act 1 boss with ease. The relic it gives may be skipped if the player is attempting the "Who Needs Relics?" Achievement.
  • [I am Awake] is typically the most dangerous of the three options, as there is no way to negate its downside. Unless the player is very confident in their deck, or this event is found near the end of the act, taking this option is not viable. In addition, this option gives the player the MarkoftheBloom.png Mark of the Bloom relic, so it cannot be taken if the player is attempting the "Who Needs Relics?" achievement.
  • [I am Rich] is a strong option if the player has ways to handle Curses (Omamori.png Omamori, Du-VuDoll.png Du-Vu Doll, any reliable way to remove curses) and is even more powerful with ways to leverage the gold efficiently (MembershipCard.png Membership Card, TheCourier.png The Courier, plenty of upcoming Merchants). The money it gives the player is also useful for increasing your score. Be careful, as the Normalities this option grants are dangerous.
  • [I am Healthy] is useful if the player is very low on HP, but it is not useful in other circumstances, unless the player has Du-VuDoll.png Du-Vu Doll or is not confident in their ability to fight an Act 1 boss.
