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.


Useful Info

orange crystal statues are stationary guardians that have the ability to drain your intelligence, your MP, or to confuse you and your allies. Additionally they cast Shadow Creatures, flooding the area around them with powerful summoned monsters. If an orange crystal statue is in your LOS and your intelligence is less than 4, you are at risk of stat zero. They can be found in various vaults almost anywhere after the early Dungeon.
