Notes[edit]

  • The ranged variant seems to possesses another skill called "Grasping Vines", but information on how it works and what it does is currently unclear. [research requested]
  • Players are sometimes launched in the air when they are hit by the charge attack while having stability, or when the knockdown is negated by another effect.
  • Chilling, crippling, or immobilizing this creature will cancel its charge attack.

Trivia[edit]

  • Mordrem Teragriffs seem to possess a degree of sexual dimorphism as the melee variant is larger and more aggressive than its ranged counterpart.
  • Its name is derived from Tera (Greek for 'monster') and griff (shortened from 'Griffon').[1]
