Combat abilities[edit]

  • Jade Beam - The Jade Maw's beam attack can be avoided with skills that provide an evade effect (like Distortion, Elixir S or a dodge) or endured with an invulnerability effect such as the one from skills like Obsidian Flesh. Dodging right after the Jade Maw agony attack.png red skull warning icon above the character disappears will avoid the beam every time.
  • The Jade Maw has 14,940 total health points on all levels.

Related achievements[edit]


  • Due to its Dense Scales effect, it cannot be damaged by any regular skills.
  • The Agony applied by the Maw's phase transitions lasts for 9 seconds, ticking 9 times in total and cannot be avoided by any means.


  • There are many one-eyed creatures in mythology, notably the Balor of Irish legends, a giant cyclopean god whose evil eye could kill with just one look. Some stories state that he was killed by a stone fired from a slingshot by his grandson, Lugh.
