Defeat Lycius, Midnight’s Howl in Lair Map

1. Defeat Lycius, Midnight’s Howl

Lycius, Midnight’s Howl is a unique boss which is found in Lair Map. Resistance: Elemental Damage and Chaos Damage.

Lycius has two alternating timed abilities:

  • Human form: The boss will melee attack, and unleash a frontal AoE once during this period.
  • Wolf form: The boss is immune to all attacks while continuing to melee attack, which adds a Bleed debuff. She will also occasionally summon 4-5 wolves for the player to dispatch.
  • Spectral Throw
  • Channels, sending out several waves of Wolf Spirit projectiles (Despite appearance, this is as an attack not a spell)
  • Summon Wolves
  • Transform into a Wolf, becoming damage immune and causing bleeding with attacks (Minions/Totems/Mimics do not pull any aggro while boss is in wolf form. He will only go for the main character until he turns back into human form.)

He does not teleport around the arena, nor does the arena have hazards as with the standard Rigwald encounter.
