Orange crystal statue
|An intricately carved idol of some nameless godling, hewn of translucent orange crystal. Its lifeless eyes seem to glitter uncannily with a wicked intelligence. It is capable of unleashing a powerful psychic assault upon the minds of any who approach it.|
Every turn you are in the line of sight of an orange crystal statue, there is a 66.6% chance that it will inflict a random Divinations miscast effect on you. If your current intelligence is less than 8, you are at risk of instantly being reduced to 0 intelligence if you have no quick means of recovering from having 0 intelligence. Other effects include confusion or draining your MP. They can be found in various vaults almost anywhere after the early Dungeon.
Tips & Tricks
- Wearing an amulet of clarity will protect you from the confusion, but a ring of sustain abilities won't protect you from the intelligence loss.
- In general, try not to fight them while other hostile creatures are around.
- Although they're largely resistant to elemental magic, powerful Earth Magic spells can take them out quickly. Shatter and Lee's Rapid Deconstruction are particularly effective.
