Hunting Vertani like times and times before:


6446h, 4238m, 30468e, 18888w e-

15:56:56 Damek, Feranki Magelord mutters an incantation under his breath. The ground beneath you cracks open suddenly, and a tentacle formed from hot lava whips out, lacerating and burning you.

15:56:56 You viciously jab a Soulpiercer into Damek, Feranki Magelord.

15:56:56 The songblessing upon the rapier sings out with a piercing high note.

15:56:56 Damek, Feranki Magelord exclaims, "House Feranki, to my aid!"

15:56:57 A thrumming chamber (indoors).

15:56:57 The air is cool and crisp. A sharp, alkaline smell, vaguely reminiscent of bleach, pervades the chamber, hitting the back of the throat and burning the lungs. The walls are smooth and covered with a thin layer of shining condensation. The floor here is a solid, unbroken sheet of obsidian. Neatly inlaid into the stone are sigils and magical formulae, the arcane script forming sweeping geometric shapes that intersect with one another to produce a tangled skein of Vertani earth magic. Banners of indigo and crimson hang from the chamber roof, fluttering without the aid of a breeze. The whole chamber thrums with a low, bass tone that is felt more than heard, setting the stone to vibrate and teeth to chatter. Damek, the Feranki Magelord, mutters unintelligible phrases under his breath.

15:56:57 You see a single exit leading south.

15:56:57 4833h, 4238m, 30456e, 18888w e-

15:56:57 You may drink another health or mana elixir or tonic.

15:56:58 Drawing on the unyielding strength of the earth beneath his feet, Damek, Feranki Magelord clutches at your neck with a grip like an iron vice, crushing your wind pipe.

15:57:00 Snarling with effort, Damek, Feranki Magelord draws deeply on the power of the earth, and huge slabs of the wall break free to pulverize you. (1)

15:57:00 Damek, Feranki Magelord mutters an incantation under his breath. The ground beneath you cracks open suddenly, and a tentacle formed from hot lava whips out, lacerating and burning you. (2)

15:57:00 You have been slain by Damek, Feranki Magelord.


Looks as if he's doing two attacks at once, but I've never seen this before.

5000 damage at once; is attack (1) something super rare that just does that much damage? The other attack (2) only did 1,600 when it happens at the beginning of the log.

Anyone know what caused this?

    Seems it's really that one attack that does the insane damage. Question answered!

    That's pretty insane.

    I'm curious if there is anything special about the mob (quest-related or otherwise) that would justify this chance to one-shot people, unless they're very tanky and careful on top.
    If not, maybe this is a bug?

    He's been doing that mad damage for a while now (maybe a few RL months). I have to switch into dragonform to fight him the same way I do with Balam in Dun these days.

    It's just a random proc'ing attack, like a runeblade. I thought it was a bug but apparently he's got a small chance on any hit to set it off. When you're squishy you gotta be careful about it.
