This is a powerful beast with an immense amount of health, which can also deal a significant amount of damage if you’re not properly equipped, so be sure to cast protection spells if necessary. If you’re a light armoured class or a mage, try to stay in a flanking position or place yourself at a reasonable distance to avoid area of effect damage.
