The Undead Nightstalker is the boss that guards Floor 13 of Castle Incrad. Its physical form lacks any real density, allowing it to dodge most attacks easily.
The Undead Nightstalker's appearance varies as it has the ability to copy other objects or people. Its primary form, however, is a bipedal monster with no facial features or notable body dimensions. Its entire body is covered in a misty black coating that constantly swirls and spins around. Its physique is thicker in its head and torso rather than its legs.
Fighting Style Edit
The Nightstalker's style of engaging its enemies varies greatly because it can change its form to other objects or even copies of people. This ability is easily countered as it cannot copy colors or density of objects, making it easy to identify. When not copying other things, it will use deception and quick strikes to overwhelm startled opponents.
It is able to copy most objects that it sees. This meaning that it can copy weapons, armor, or even people. During this transformation, it will steer clear of all attacks until completing its change. Its common forms that it likes to copy are weapons and people. During combat, it may let out a mocking laughter that is meant to taunt the player to attack it. This will allow it to counter and attack.
The Undead Nightstalker, being a shadow monster, is absent of density and makes it physically impossible to use direct hits anywhere on it. Only two proven methods by beta-testers are prone to working to defeat it.
- The first method is to wait for it to copy something else. It is unable to match the density of the copied object, but, it will have density nevertheless. This will allow all strikes to come within contact.
- The second method is to use fire-dealing weapons. Shadows are naturally damaged by light, so light from fire attachments will enable players to hurt it even in its transparent composition.
