Tips & Tricks

  • Their Flash Freeze breath deals significant damage, ignores EV, and applies Frozen, slowing movement speed. Cold resistance is helpful. Fortunately, they cannot spam Flash Freeze: this spell cannot affect creatures that are Frozen.
  • They are fast, but have low AC, a moderate amount of EV and low willpower. Try to take them out quickly.
