Abilities and Attacks

  • Icicle Spikes: Summons icicles that spike from the ground at the player's location, dealing 100% ATK as AoE Cryo DMG. Also leaves behind a frozen patch of ground that deals 30% ATK as Cryo DoT to players that step on it.
  • Ice Pillars: Summons pillars below itself and any nearby Samachurls, Hilichurl Shooters, and Abyss Mages, giving them a higher ground to attack. The pillars also periodically release blasts around it, dealing 30% ATK as AoE Cryo DMG. The pillars are considered Cryo Constructs, which can be effectively damaged with Pyro or Blunt attacks. Defeating the Samachurl will also destroy all its summoned pillars.
  • Smack: If the player is within melee range, swings its staff at the player, dealing 200% ATK as Physical DMG and knocking the player back. The Samachurl also falls in the process due to the staff's weight. The Samachurl will not perform this attack while it is on top of a pillar.
