Prioritizing Unique Bosses in Ultimatum Encounters:

  • When used in the Map Device, this Scarab would have influenced Ultimatum Encounters within your map. Ultimatum Encounters offered a challenging trial followed by a choice between an initial reward or pushing further for a greater reward with increased difficulty.
  • Focus on Unique Bosses: The Ultimatum Scarab of Dueling would have likely altered the encounter selection process to prioritize spawning a Unique Boss as the final opponent of the Ultimatum trial, if possible.
    • This wouldn’t have been a guaranteed effect, as some map layouts or situations might not allow for a Unique Boss spawn.

Understanding Ultimatum Encounters:

  • Trial and Choice: Ultimatum Encounters presented you with a challenging trial where you battled waves of enemies. After completing the trial, you were offered an ultimatum: accept a reward or push further for a potentially greater reward but with increased difficulty.
  • Variable Final Opponent: The base Ultimatum encounter could culminate in facing a regular enemy pack, a mini-boss, or a Unique Boss, depending on various factors.

Impact of the Scarab:

  • Higher Chance of Unique Boss Fights: The Scarab would have increased the likelihood of encountering a Unique Boss at the end of the Ultimatum trial, providing a more challenging but potentially more rewarding conclusion.
