Wielders of abyssal fire who pursue the meaning behind texts and scriptures. Is a member of the Abyss Order.
The surface people have a slightly distorted understanding of what their name means, calling them "Lectors" when their name can also mean "exegete." Reading the word of grace grants them great power.

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: On hit, certain attacks by the Abyss Lector will apply the Brand of the Abyssal Flame status to the player. Shortly after being applied, the Brand of Abyssal Flame expires, dealing True DMG to the entire party. 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.
  • Solar Orb: Conjures a large fireball which it throws at the player, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.
  • Sparking Flares: Summons 5 small flares above itself before shooting them at the player, dealing Pyro DMG.
  • Scorching Scriptures: When a character strays near to the Abyss Lector, it will release a powerful infernal wave around itself, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.
  • Abyssal Flames: Summons 3 bursts of flame to flare up from the ground, dealing AoE Pyro DMG applying Brand of the Abyssal Flame to players hit. This attack is used twice in a row when the Lector is shielded.
  • Hellfire Haven: After its health falls below a certain threshold, 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 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: Summons a meteor to crash into the ground, dealing 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: Summons many bursts of flame to flare up form the ground for the entire duration of the Darkfire Furnace, dealing AoE Pyro DMG and applying the Brand of the Abyssal Flame to players hit. This attack is used always and only immediately after casting Darkfire Meteor.
