These mobs, like all Bhoots, have a move called Perdition that causes instant Death. Keep them off generals if you can, as one Perdition can take them out (the only time Zazarg died on our server was due to this, I think).

Assault Bhoots will use the Ghost-type AOE Drain move, which is disasterious when you have 30+ melee circling this mob, giving it the TP to spam the move, and allowing it to completely recover the damage dealt to it. This comes from watching one hover hetween 1 and 34% life for about 10 minutes before it was finally nuked to death.

<Qiqirn Diamantaire> I dooon't knooow...it's not like they're wooorth anything.

The Qiqirn Mercenary pulls a Karakul Sack off of a roll and starts filling it with some nearby sand...

Actually, SE changed this in the update- they lowered the frequency of use by quite a bit. While the ghosts will still use Grave Reel and drain HP sometimes, its incredibly rare. It's no longer taboo to melee these, but be prepared to be cursed if you do. They may not spam Grave Reel, but they spam Curse like crazy.

Terror Touch- Single target, deals damage and causes Attack Down.
Grave Reel- AoE Drain
Dark Sphere- Single target, deals damage and blinds target.
Curse- AoE curse effect.
Perdition- Single target...One hit kill. Doesn't deal damage, you just fall to the ground. Ouch.

In addition to these attacks, the Bhoots cast upper-level black magic, including Flare, Burst, Flood, and the full range of -ga III's.
