The construct has a combination of abilities of both bow and armor jade constructs. The ranged attacks cover a large area with multiple AoEs, and the construct is surrounded by lava. However, there are several platforms within melee range from which players can avoid all damage with careful positioning. At 75% and 25% health he will summon a shield that can be broken by throwing Explosive Lava Rocks while gliding. The construct will also use Spectral Agony causing high damage throughout its duration to players unless cleansed with Counter Magic.
