Abilities and Attacks

  • Reinforce If the Defender's attacks hit a shielded character, their bow will reinforce itself with a guard shield that blocks attacks from the front and increases its own ATK by 15% at the cost of 15% of its Current HP.
  • Chilling Bolt: Sets its bow on the ground and aims at the player before shooting an icy arrow that deals 100% ATK as Cryo DMG.
  • Frozen Airstrike: Shoots an attack towards the air which then lands on the player dealing 100% ATK as AoE Cryo DMG.

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.
  • Global CD is shared with all nearby Shadowy Husks.

Change History

Released in Version 2.5
Version 2.6
  • The Shadowy Husk: Defender's Archive description was updated.
    • Old description: An engimatic warrior of darkness. Judging by appearances, it is nothing but an empty husk, but the weapon in its hand seems more like it was meant to protect rather than slaughter.
      New description: A pitch-dark soldier. Once a proud warrior of an ancient underground nation, it is now nothing but a husk that only bears memories of battle. All shall decay in the end, and this is all that is left of the Black Serpent Knights amidst the merciless march of their sins, curses, and time itself.

Version 2.5

  • Shadowy Husk: Defender was released.
