Niskaru Tyrants are seen across the Warsworn storyline and seen in the main storyline.
Niskaru Tyrants are much taller than lower-class Niskaru and seem to lack certain features that lower-class Niskaru have.
Most Niskaru Tyrants are resistant to fire-based attacks and vulnerable to ice-based attacks. However few Tyrants wield elemental ice and are therefore weak to fire. An example of this is the Niskaru Horrinox who appears several times in the game though a Horrinox does not always follow this example. The Horrinox in the Valor challenges throws fire and is indeed immune to fire and weak to ice, despite being a Horrinox.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
- Fireball spit, used only if target is out of melee reach; the Tyrant will spit two fireballs with weak seeking, at a slow pace.
- Fire breath, used only if target is out of melee reach; will deal constant fire damage.
- Assault, used only if target is out of melee reach; the Tyrant will charge an attack and then rush at its target at high speed, headbutting the victim if it connects.
- Tail swipe, causes strong knockback. Slow build-up but quick attack. Can be parried with good timing.
- Arm stretch, the Tyrant will slam one of its arms twice to crush his enemy. The second strike has longer range.
- Fire Outburst, used only if the target is in melee range; the Tyrant will concentrate power and then cause an explosion with large radius surrounding him.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Niskaru Tyrants are very dangerous enemies especially if encountered early in the game, if you chose to pursue the Warsworn questline as soon as possible, far outclassing smaller Niskaru in terms of damage and health.
Fighting a Niskaru Tyrant from afar will require attention as he is as dangerous with his ranged attack as he is within melee range. Pay close attention when he charges and be ready to dodge at all times.
For Sorcery characters Ice Barrage excels in damage also being able to make the Tyrant flinch quick.
Might and Finesse characters should use Ice weapons to lessen the difficulty of the battle. Dodging after 2-3 attacks is crucial to avoid getting hit, be particularly mindful of the Fire Outburst attack as it can deal a large amount of damage also inflicting the Burning ailment.
