Behold my greatest work—the power of the dragons, invested in a creature under my control!

Kudu

Kudu's Monster is an abomination, the culmination of Kudu's experiments with dragon energies. Like a mockery of an elementalist, it is capable of attuning to the powers of the Elder Dragons Jormag, Kralkatorrik, Primordus, and Zhaitan; the nature of its attacks change based upon its current attunement. It is the final encounter in the story about the Crucible of Eternity.

Location[edit]

Maguuma Jungle

Behavior
  • Periodically, the Monster will change its attunement between fire, ice, brand, and corruption. The current attunement can be determined by the particle effects on the Monster.
