Contents [hide]

General Information

  • Spawns in the final wave of a level 8 Mamool Ja Savages Besieged in Al Zahbi.

  • Has a draw-in effect.

  • After a certain number of critical hits are performed, one of the Illuyankas's heads will recede into its body, resulting in a reduction of its auto-regen effect. The two heads to either side of the center one can be removed, decreasing its regeneration effect significantly. After an unspecified amount of time, its heads will begin to regrow.

    • Additionally, whichever heads are out determines the possible special attacks it is capable of performing.

Illuyankas Special Attacks

  • Barofield: AoE Wind based magic damage with an additional Weight effect. (Circle of effect originates from Illuyankas's center head).

  • Serpentine Tail: Rear conal AoE physical damage.

    • Occurs only if hate is drawn on Illuyankas from behind it.

  • Trembling: AoE magic damage with an additional Dispel effect.

  • Pyric Bulwark: Self target Physical shield. (Effect cannot be dispelled)

    • Will only perform this ability if its left head is out.

  • Polar Blast: Frontal cone AoE Ice based magic damage with an additional Paralysis effect.

    • Will only perform this ability if its left head is out.

  • Polar Bulwark: Self target Magic shield. (Effect cannot be dispelled)

    • Will only perform this ability if its right head is out.

  • Pyric Blast: Frontal cone AoE Fire based magic damage with an additional Plague effect.

    • Will only perform this ability if its right head is out.

  • Nerve Gas: AoE Curse and strong Poison effect.

    • Will only perform this ability if all three heads are out, and will only begin to do this once its hp drops below 25%.

Historical Information

In Hurrian mythology, the Illuyankas was a giant dragon slain by the storm god Teshub. Unable to safely attack it while it was awake, Teshub tricked it into passing out by getting it to drink heavily from a massive vat of liquor.

Nasty thing

Just saw this nasty thing tonight.
3 lvl8 besieges and the mamool was that last to arrive.
Whole battle was 3 hours and i never saw this thing even dented.

It has a very unique type of hate where if you raise someone it just killed then it can use some draw you in thing.
I was on the top walkway raising someone below and it just pulled me down right under him.
This thing is mean. Cant imagine what a lvl 10 would be like.
One day maybe:
