Abilities and Attacks

Names are unofficial. (Abyssal Flames is named after the status that it applies: Brand of the Abyssal Flame. The Fathomless Flames is named after its title.)

Brand of the Abyssal Flame
Description
When certain attacks by the Abyss Lector deal DMG to the player, they will apply the Brand of the Abyssal Flame status to the player. Shortly after being applied, the Brand of Abyssal Flame expires, causing the entire party to lose HP.
  • Although shields and dash i-frames can stop the status from being applied, they cannot negate the DMG dealt once it has already been applied. The on-field character can negate this DMG to themselves using Elemental Burst i-frames, but off-field characters will be damaged regardless.
  • Off-field characters will not be damaged below 15% Max HP by this ability.
  • The HP Loss dealt by the Brand of the Abyssal Flame is calculated as:
Solar Orb
Description
Conjures a large fireball which it throws at the player, dealing 50% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG.
Sparking Flares
Description
Summons 5 small flares above itself before shooting them at the player, each dealing 20% ATK as Pyro DMG.
Scorching Scriptures
Description
When a character strays near to the Abyss Lector, it will release a powerful infernal wave around itself, dealing 75% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG.
Abyssal Flames
Description
Summons 3 bursts of flame to flare up from the ground, dealing 20% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG applying Brand of the Abyssal Flame to players who take DMG from this attack. This attack is used twice in a row when the Lector is shielded.
Hellfire Haven
Description
After its HP reaches 20%, the Abyss Lector: Fathomless Flames will imbue itself with a powerful Pyro shield, providing it immunity to all DMG until its shield is broken. The shield is weakest to Hydro. Upon the shield's activation, deals 100% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG in a large area around itself and causing heavy knockback. The Abyss Lector also gains new/upgraded attacks when shielded.
  • The Lector will immediately be defeated after its shield has been destroyed, even though it still has HP remaining.
Darkfire Meteor
Description
Summons a meteor to crash into the ground, dealing 50% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG and leaving behind a Darkfire Furnace. Destroying the Darkfire Furnace before it expires will partly deplete the Lector's shield. This attack is only used when in the Hellfire Haven state.
The Fathomless Flames
Description
Summons many bursts of flame to flare up form the ground for the entire duration of the Darkfire Furnace, dealing 20% ATK as AoE Pyro DMG and applying the Brand of the Abyssal Flame to players who take DMG from this attack. This attack is used always and only immediately after casting Darkfire Meteor.

Ability Logic

  • An ability will only be used if they meet all of the following conditions:
    • The ability is not on cooldown
    • The target is within the range required by the ability
    • The ability has the highest priority out of all that meet the previous 2 conditions
      • A lower priority number indicates a higher priority.
      • If multiple abilities share the highest priority, one will be chosen at random.
  • Certain abilities with extra trigger conditions may defy regular ability logic.
Ability Range Req. (m) Priority CD (s) Initial CD (s) Action Interval (s) Triggers Act. Int. State Req.
Sparking Flares 0–20 5 10–15 2
Solar Orb 0–20 5 10–12
Scorching Scriptures 0–8 5 25–27 10
Brand of the Abyssal Flame 0–20 5 5–8
Darkfire Meteor 0–20 1 40–50 15 Shielded

Strategies

These Pyro Lectors are not particularly dangerous while shielded, although their ability to deal True DMG to the entire party means that the player should avoid their attacks as much as possible to avoid unnecessary damage unless shielded or evaded.

Upon reaching critical health, the Lector will activate a Pyro shield that permanently applies said status onto them, opening them up to more consistent elemental reactions but also enhances their attacks. It is highly recommended to use Hydro as it deals the most damage to the shield. Almost always immediately after activating their shield, the Lector will drop a Darkfire Furnace. It is highly recommended to destroy these before they expire themselves as doing so will remove ~15-20% of the Lector's shield. As with the shield they apply onto themselves, Hydro is most effective against the furnace.

Once the Lector's shield breaks, they are automatically defeated.
