Journal Entry

"Do you feel the earth move under your feet, cap? That'll be the Skarn. They love nothing more than to burrow into an island and feed on aether, but get this--they look just like aether vents when they feed, so don't be fooled. "

The body of the Skarn is relatively lean and lizard-like, with anatomy similar to a terrestrial turtle. But these Behemoths don't grow a bony shell. Instead they use the living terra aether within their archonite cores to form protective armour plating out of earth and stone. The result is a heavy, stout, slow-moving creature that can easily resist damage from a Slayer's weapons unless a gap in their armour can be found or the individual rocks and boulders the Skarn wears like a shield are broken.

A Skarn doesn't rely on its instinctive connection to terra for defense alone. The same instincts that drive this Behemoth to pull stone and rock to itself for protection also allow it to use those same materials as weapons. It can pull its armour in around its body to form a stone cocoon, and then blast that cocoon out as a wave of rock. The Skarn will hunker down in and launch individual pieces of boulder at a specific foe, crushing them beneath an arc of tumbling rock.

Most terrifying of all, they are able to use terra to pull all the stones in the area into a punishing cyclone of wind, debris, and solid rock. This brutal attack also drags any nearby Slayers inexorably into a twisting vortex of aether and stone, knocking even the most prepared and protected Behemoth hunters onto their backs.

Skarns can be found throughout the Shattered Isles, but despite their great bulk they are actually quite good at camouflage thanks to the natural environmental armour around their scaly bodies. When a Skarn wants to settle in and feed on an aether vent, it will burrow down into the earth next to that aether source and begin its feast. Other Behemoths are known to burrow-feed in this way, but only the Skarn can disguise its exposed back as a second aether vent. Savvy Slayers always check for a second vent.


Kat's Hunting Tips:

-The Skarn’s armour is vulnerable to blunt damage of the sort dealt by hammers and aether strikers.

-A Skarn’s aether vortex is tough to crack, but it can be interrupted with a well-timed staggering attack.

-When a Skarn targets you with a belly-slam, heavy damage to its legs can stop the attack cold.
