"Captain, its flamethrower is glowing blue!"



Background

A pawn of the Aureus army, it protects the Aureus Spawners along with the Aureus Warrior. It shoots a very powerful blue flame that vaporizes all that are foolish enough to come in contact with it.

This enemy moves quite slowly, but its teleportation makes it deathly to avoid. The only way to get one of these to stop following you is to kill it or go back to the Safe Zone.

Behavior

The Monachus has a pattern which is very easy to predict. When a Monachus sights a player it will teleport in front of the player and shoot out a burst of Shadow Flames, circle the player for a moment then teleport back in front or behind the player if the player continues to move away.

Strategy

2500+ Armour and 75%+ Energy Resistance is needed to survive efficiently against the monachus while also using a corrosive or kinetic weapon. Its weapon is extremely powerful but can be nullified with 1-2 armour artifacts. It does teleport close to the player so be aware of it and shield when it teleports. Do not let it follow you from behind as its flamethrower will roast you alive.

A rather easy way to take out a Monachus is to single one out, then use a plankton siphon gland to chip away at his health and shield, and leech it at the same time. (Make sure there are no Aureus Warriors to blast you because they disable healing, rendering the siphon useless).

Having 75% energy resist is basically required if you dare to take one on.
