Location of Boss Blitz bosses.

Kuraii the Cruel was one of the most dangerous and driven of humanity's foes. Countess Anise has used mesmer magic to enchant a watchknight to look like him, to fight in Queen Jennah's gladiatorial arena.

Kuraii was from War King's Greatcamp, and was strategic and efficient. His fighting style was to use constricting arrows before fleeing into the maze.[1]
