Habitats:

Description:

  • Fairly large monsters, that can fill and block a doorway, if someone engages them in the right place, preventing the Shadow of Hate's allies from getting past until the Shadow is down (n.b. not a foolproof solution, but it can help).
  • Shadows of Hate are too large to fit through some smaller doorways at all, so can be pulled to those locations (if available) and ranged or ignored until other threats are dealt with.
  • Rend Curse combined with attacks from companion monsters can quickly reduce Maximum HP and Actual HP total, allowing characters to be one-shotted by attacks that would not normally be an issue. Stunning Shadows of Hate (or using other forms of CC) can allow the other monsters to be killed first, making the fight versus the Shadows of Hate less deadly.
