|| A huge wrinkled brain, floating just off the floor and glowing with mutagenic energies. Every now and then it seems to pulsate.
Giant orange brains are dangerous evil casters which can summon brutal monsters, feed on your intellect, or confuse you. While not too intimidating initially, they can create powerful reinforcements quickly and complicate almost any fight. They can be found in the Depths, the Vaults, and rarely in the Slime Pits.
Tips & Tricks
- Use a source of clarity and try to kill them as quickly as possible to avoid a summoning spree. They aren't too durable, so a few high-powered Conjurations should take them out, but melee fighters may wish to lure them around a corner to avoid a dangerous charge into melee range.
- Airstrike works well, taking advantage of their low AC and flight. Bolt spells or other attacks that let you hit them even when they're hiding behind allies are also handy.
- No matter how frightening their summoned allies are, remember that killing the summoner will eliminate all its summons. This may be a safer, faster escape route than fleeing on foot or trying to teleport away.
