Historical Information

In the folklore of the indigenous Ainu ethnic group of Japan, the Atkorkamuy was described as a red bodied fish or octopus-like creature so large that it could be seen from extremely far away. Legend has it that it lurked in the waters of the Funka Bay near Hokkaidō.

Walked up to this thinking it was the kraken from BST quest and tried to charm it. That did NOT go over well.

Tried this mob several times, ended up with 2 smn duoing it.

Hits hard, and has a pretty hefty add effect(as a 75 DRK I was taking ~200+70 per hit) It has a AOE WS that removes all shadows.
