Tips and Tricks
- Sabotendance is an untelegraphed circle AoE around Maliktender that knocks back and stuns players, preventing them from avoiding needles. 2 second cast.
- Haste grants Maliktender a permanent Haste buff, reducing the cast time of its actions.
- 50,000 Needles is a column AoE targeted at a random player dealing 50,000 damage. Only used when not Hasted. 2 second cast
- 99,000 Needles is a column AoE targeted at a random player dealing 990,000 damage. Only used when Hasted. 2 second cast.
Every so often, Maliktender will move to a random player and use Sabotendance. Immediately after, it will use 50,000 Needles three times in a row, targeting random players before resuming using its normal attacks on the primary threat target. After a few rounds of this, Maliktender will cast Haste, speeding up its casts while also changing 50,000 Needles into 99,000 Needles.
Here's a language lesson for you: Malik means “king” or some such in the old tongue, so take a wild guess what Maliktender means. That's right. You'll know him when you seem him. Picture a gigantender, then picture his ornery liege lord. And there you have it. Some scholars say that the damned things can live more than two hundred years in the right conditions, which means this bugger could have been shambling about since before the Flood, for all we know...
