Journal Entry[]

"The Umbral Void seems to resonate with the shock bandwidth of the aetheric spectrum in ways the ancients never described in the surviving texts. Perhaps they never had the chance to jot that down."

- Arkan Drew

Umbral aether seems to have an unusual attachment to the opposing powers of shock and terra. A subspecies of Nayzaga that evolved within the Umbral Deeps to feed solely on charged umbral power, the Shadowtouched Nayzaga has adapted to the weird dimensional energy of its environment to open portals into the Umbral Void. There it somehow spawns a dark shadow of itself, sending that creation back through the portal before emerging to strike its distracted enemies.

A Shadowtouched Nayzaga has no weakness to terra, nor is it resistant to shock. The subspecies is purely an umbral Behemoth now.

Kat's Hunting Tips:

- When moving through portals, the Shadowtouched Nayzaga is briefly vulnerable to staggering hits. Land a strike when the creature is visible to knock it out of this behaviour pattern.

- The Shadowtouched Nayzaga creates shadow clones of itself to use as decoys when using its portals. The clones alternate with the actual Behemoth, so if you are trying to ambush the beast be sure you're hitting the right one. The true Behemoth will be much more colourful.
