Basic Info[]

Patient Note[]

This dossier section is intended to be an exact copy of what Dr. Sophia, the author of the Patient Notes has written. There may be some discrepancies between this text and the in-game creatures.

Doedicurus Vastus Pt. Note (Mobile).png
Pre-exposure

Subject is non-aggressive unless threatened and battles until sustaining a life-threatening amount of damage before retreating into its hard exterior shell. While still able to be damaged via its shell, the subject is mostly-protected and can withstand significantly more damage in this state than when out of its shell.

Post-exposure

Highly aggressive and significantly more protected, the subject has developed a series of powerful protective plates akin to armor across every inch of its shell. The subject is nearly indestructible when curled into its shell, and even more deadly in this state as it rolls in a frenzy towards any threat. If that weren't enough, the subject has also developed a significantly more damaging material over its already-spikey tail, able to smash an enemy flat in mere moments.

Combat[]

This section describes how to fight against the Doedicurus Vastus.

General[]

Fighting the Vastus is all about hitting key weak points and dodging its roll attack.

Strategy[]

  • Use ranged weaponry while moving to avoid its rolls. Aim for the head, tail, or underside.
  • The Doedicurus Vastus takes heavily reduced damage when you shoot its shell.
  • Stay to its right side to avoid attacks.

Weaponry[]

Dangers[]

  • The Doedicurus Vastus can destroy anything in the arena when it uses its roll attack.

Weakness[]

  • The Doedicurus Vastus is slow when not rolling and it won't do a lot of damage if you have decent armor.
  • The Doedicurus Vastus is unable to attack to its right side. If you stand there, it won't be able to damage you at all and will have trouble turning to face you due to its large turn radius.

Spotlight[]
