Winter Tree Fossil Mobs & Mechanics

Komau

Komau paints a blue circle on the ground during a continuous AOE attack.

Quickly get out of the blue area and destroy the Komau.

icon

Breukia

Spawns with an alert: “A strong energy emanates from the Winter Tree Fossil.”

Breukia can also spawn as a larger elite mob, with the alert, “A very powerful energy emanates from the Winter Tree Fossil.”

icon

Takium

Spawns with an alert: “Takium brimming with chilling energies is found in the dark winter tree fossil”

Takium slowly makes his way from the outside to the center tree fossil.

If you do not kill him before he reaches the center, he does heavy damage and all surrounding monsters die.

 

Takium Lore: Takiums are rock-like creatures that are quite sensitive and short-tempered unlike what their gentle demeanor may suggest at first glance. They can even explode when they get angry. They’ve burnt many a Winter Tree to ashes. Even before the contamination of the Winter Trees, the villagers in Mountain of Eternal Winter used to avoid approaching Takiums.”

Takium self destructs doing heavy damage.
