"We’re reading a full-strength Gnasher on that island, cap. Big, mean, hairy beast with a tail as big as an airskiff’s hull."
The Gnasher is a reptilian-mammalian bully that always seem to be on the edge of rage. Among the more common Behemoths found in the Shattered Isles, these ferocious but fairly predictable creatures are often the first prey of an apprentice Slayer. Yet they should never be underestimated.
Gnashers instinctively use their chopping teeth to dig into the earth for archonite fragments, but those mighty incisors can just as easily snap a tree trunk or a Slayer's leg in two. The wide, flat tail they use to clear away obstacles to the aether they crave can also crush Slayers flat with a single slam. Gnashers prefer neutral archonite untinged by the elements, but are known to be opportunistic feeders.
Kat's Hunting Tips:
—Cut off the Gnasher's tail to prevent tail swipes.
—Interrupt a Gnasher by striking its head when it performs a belly-crawl attack.
—The Gnasher's stomp can knock you flat. Roll through or away from it.
