Unable to move or take action for the duration of this effect.
— In-game description
Diamondback is an action unlocked at level 1. It is available for Blue Mage.
Diamondback weaves earth-aspected aether into a hard mineral shield, mimicking what many describe as the “maddening” effect of shelled dragons' carapaces. Alas, though its defensive properties are superlative, its weight makes it impossible for the caster to move while under its aegis.
- Cuca Fera actually CAN be damaged heavily without use of the cannons. Use Missile to half his HP over and over till he's low enough to where you can kill him with standard skills. Alternatively, Level 5 Death can be used to finish the battle off instantly; just ensure Cuca Fera has used Diamondback first.
- Another option, Doom (The Masked Carnivale stage 20 Miss Typhon could give some trouble, yet still possible) or Tail Screw (Soloing Crag Claw, you can do it once you've learned 2-3 crowd control spells and have ilvl around 130), can both be used to cause instant death.
