General Information

    • Respawn time is approximately four hours after it is last defeated or despawns.

  • Has a draw-in effect that will pull all members of your party/alliance that are in the zone to it.

    • This occurs when a party/alliance member that draws hate on Lugh is beyond a certain range.

  • Susceptible to Water based magic damage. Immune to all other elemental damage.

  • Possesses innate Blaze Spikes, En-Fire, En-Plague, and Regen effects that cannot be dispelled.

  • Like Elatha, Ethniu, Buarainech, and Tethra, Lugh's enmity behavior is unique from other mobs. Any player's actions, regardless of how much enmity the action generates, will "pull hate" on Lugh, making standard tanking difficult.

  • Instantly casts Fire IV in retaliation to magic damage dealt to it.

  • Will "Level Up" each time he casts Blue Magic, resulting in an increase in offensive and defensive power.

    • Will only Level Up a certain number of times before reaching its cap.

  • If all party/alliance members with hate on Lugh are defeated or leave the zone, Lugh will despawn, following the emote "The monster fades before your eyes, a look of disappointment on its face".

Historical Information

Lugh (pronounced /ˈluː/; modern Irish Lú) is an Irish deity represented in mythological texts as a hero and High King of the distant past. He is known by the epithets Lámhfhada (pronounced /'la:wad̪ˠə/, meaning "long arm" or "long hand", or "left hand"), for his skill with a spear or sling, Ildánach ("skilled in many arts"), Samhildánach ("Equally skilled in many arts"), Lonnbeimnech ("fierce striker" or perhaps "sword-shouter") and Macnia ("boy hero"), and by the matronymic mac Ethlenn or mac Ethnenn ("son of Ethliu or Ethniu"). He is a reflex of the pan-Celtic god Lugus, and his Welsh counterpart is Lleu Llaw Gyffes "Lugh Strong Hand".
