  • Defiance.png Armored - Incoming damage decreased.
  • Spit - Projectile auto-attack that Immobile.png immobilizes for 5 seconds and transfers 1 condition.
  • Stomp - The Karka jumps up and stomps twice in succession upon landing, dealing high damage and Knockdown.png knocking down for 2 seconds in a point-blank area of effect with each stomp.
  • Rolling Charge - The Karka jumps up and spins, pulling its body into a cylindrical shape and rolling forward when it lands. As it travels, it inflicts high damage and Knockdown.png knocks down in a point-blank area of effect every second. The Karka gains Might.png Might each time an enemy is hit, but it will stop rolling upon reaching 25 stacks. Terrain and other impassable barriers prevent the Karka's movement but do not end the charge. This results in massive, pulsing point-blank area of effect damage that will quickly down or kill any players nearby.
