Kirin

By
Vincent Lau

In legends, Kirin was pure and virtuous, dancing upon the ground so that it might not even kill a single blade of grass. Those who did good deeds in their lifetime were rewarded with good fortunes and a long, happy life. Well, the legends lied. In reality, Kirin is the incarnation of lightning, and seeks nothing more than to eliminate you from its territory. A dance with the Kirin is a dance of death, and only one will come out the survivor.

Areas

Everwood

Tower Summit

Attacks

Kirin’s horn is its weakest spot, so if you can, aim for that. You will also break the horn that way, which lands you more rewards. If you do not have Mind’s Eye, you’ll have to attack the horn anyways, and most of Kirin’s hide is very tough and will bounce weapons of even purple sharpness.

Buck: Kirin will rear and then land heavily on its front hooves, kicking its hind legs up to buck you.

Galloping Charge: Kirin will gallop aggressively towards you, often lowering its head to gore you with its horn.

Lightning’s Dance: Kirin will toss its head, and then lightning will strike the ground around it in specific patterns. Stay away from Kirin in general while this attack is being performed.

Lightning’s Charge: Kirin will toss its head up and lightning will strike the ground rapidly in a straight line in front of it towards you. Dodge by moving to the side.

Breakable Parts

Horn: Kirin’s horn will appear much shorter and broken.

Weaknesses

Elemental: Fire, Water
