Battle Details

The fight is against a single Humaniod NPC. It wields a sword and starts with using Savage Blade regardless of hate or TP. If anyone starts casting a long casting spell it will run over to them and use Flat Blade to stun. Observed doing this against Regen III, Stoneskin, and Raise III.

It will fight fairly easy for the first 50% and doesn't resist many debuffs. Paralyze seemed to work extremely well.

At 50% it will "2 hour." No traditional two hour is used, however its style greatly changes. It now hits much harder and will do Swift Blade instead of Savage.

The NPC has an AoE Petrify move that does a lot of damage. Reraise is recommended for everyone, as attempts to raise result in being stunned.
