Enemy Types

Minions

Brute

Brute

The main shock troops in the Rularuu army are the Brutes. Faceless and grotesque, the Brutes are powerful fighters. Their primary weapons are the giant crystals that sit atop their heads, but they can also make short work of a hero with their powerful, club-like arms.

Natterling

Natterling

Natterlings travel in large packs, hopping about the floating islands and mystic causeways of the Shadow Shard looking for intruders. They're very good scavengers, and any piece of technology or any living thing they find they'll scoop up and bring back to their masters.

Watcher

Watcher

These hideous creatures watch over the entirety of the Shadow Shard. Their giant eyeballs serve not only as a mechanism for exceptional sight, but also as their primary weapon.

Lieutenants

Bull Natterling

Bull Natterling

What are Natterlings made of? No one can truly say. Their twisted bodies seem to be composed of all manner of matter, from the flesh of Brutes to the strange jewel-like Kora fruit. In battle, the Natterlings will shoot gouts of this amalgamated material at their enemies, causing great damage and a very unpleasant smell.

Bosses

Honored Brute

Rularuu the Ravager

Rularuu the Ravager

Main Article: Rularuu the Ravager

The master of the Shadow Shard stands over a hundred feet in height. Rularuu's many powers make him a fearsome opponent, but his greatest weapon is truly his vast knowledge. Having absorbed thousands of dimensions, Rularuu knows all the tricks. There is truly no surprising him.


Notes

  • Observers can see stealthed and invisible heroes.
  • An Observer's range of view to notice enemies is average, but the Optic Blast power has a very long range of attack.
  • Observers are immune to several mez powers including sleep and confuse. However, they are vulnerable to hold and fear.
  • Flight is an inherent power for Observers. While knockdown attacks do cause damage, Observers cannot be grounded.
