Historical Information

In African mythology, Dyinyinga were locii (regional spirits) that governed various aspects of nature, such as the rivers, streams, jungles, and wildlife in the area. Female dyinyinga, known as tingoi, were said to have fair skin, and were generally benevolent in nature, while their male counterparts, known as ndogbojusui, were considerably more malevolent, and had beards to show their masculine nature.

Tried while WS points session as pld/war and Blu/thf. We've been killed at 15%.

Retried immediatly with pld/whm and blu/thf, hard fight as long as this stupid thing always move on you >> "You don't see Dyinyinga".
Seems to have Amnesia and Silence Spike and all Slug attacks.
Zero drop, none even a Slug Eye.
