Reaper race

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Reapers look similar to wraiths, but their glowing eyes are distinctive.
(Mouse-hover for pop-up)

Perhaps the most significant change that comes with Reaper difficulty is the chance to encounter Reapers themselves. Whenever mobs are spawning in a quest, or have been placed as setup for the quest, or from extended combat, there's a chance for spawning additional wraith-like Reapers. Their spawn locations are not always immediately adjacent to the quest mobs, so can be anywhere in the general area, including behind or among party members.

Reapers possess the following traits:

  • Lawful Evil Outsider (not undead, despite appearance)
  • Incorporeal
  • Deathblock Effect: Protects against death spells.
  • Floating: Cannot be affected by Trip, Grease, Earthquake or other ground attacks.
    • Of particular note, most crowd control works on Reapers normally. Despite looking very similar to wraiths, they do not have resistances that undead usually have and can be controlled by most spell effects except those listed above.

4 different sub-types of Reapers exist:

  • Carnage Reaper
    • Deals extremely high melee damage. Even at low levels, Carnage Reapers can often kill targets in one or two hits.
    • Inflicts a vulnerability debuff of 20% more damage. Stacks up to 10 times. As if many are going to last half that long.
    • Likes to engage in melee.
  • Famine Reaper
    • Casts various high-damage offensive spells, predominantly damage based.
      • e.g. Frost-lance, Magic Missiles
    • Every 10 seconds, gains a stack of Doom Caster: This caster's spells will hit harder and fail less.
    • Affects nearby characters with Reaper: Slowing Touch: The Reaper's touch gnaws at your form, slowing your movement and preventing tumbling. Bestowed automatically when you enter Reaper's melee range for 4 seconds. Combat log: -50% movement, -20 melee speed, -20 ranged speed
    • Will teleport to player if it loses line of sight for long.
  • Fear Reaper
    • Has an AoE stacking DoT effect, "Fear of Death", that damages all characters anywhere in the quest until the reaper is destroyed.
      • This is activated by a combination of Line of Sight and proximity.
    • Has a radius around him where "Fear of Death" doesn't apply. Anyone within the radius of the fear reaper is safe from the effect.
    • Doesn't like to come close to the players. Usually stays in initial position, but would like to have line of sight.
    • Has a melee attack. Hits hard, but in line with champs.
  • Plague Reaper
    • Melee. Plague Reapers do similar damage to Fear Reapers but inflict a very strong healing debuff. Attempting to heal the person hit by the plague reaper is not advised unless necessary, as it will often prove unproductive until the debuff wears off.
    • Will teleport if player is too far.
