Soulless Horror

Your rotten soul is mine!

— Soulless Horror

The Soulless Horror is the first boss of Hall of Chains raid wing. It is the body of Desmina after she severed her spirit from it to avoid being corrupted. Devoid of spirit, the Soulless Horror acts only on anger and instinct.

  • Chilling Aura - A passive damaging aura effect present throughout the fight.
  • Corrupt the Living - The Soulless Horror brings the hammer back over its right shoulder and swings counter-clockwise in a slicing arc about its body, applying Torment.png Torment and Poison.png Poisoned.
  • Death Bloom - Similar to Hurricane Slash, but with all 8 cones at once radiating outwards from the boss..
  • Fingers of the Dead - These sprout from the small orange circles that appear in the cone of the Slice attack and in a large ring outside the radius of the Corrupt the Living attack.
  • Howling Death -
  • Quad Slash - The Soulless Horror charges up an AoE that hits in 4 cones radiating outwards from the boss. This attack always occurs in pairs, with the second executed a few seconds later following the same pattern but rotated by 45 degrees.
  • Slice - The Soulless Horror charges up an overhead hammer smash in the direction of the Fixated player, and brings it down in a frontal cone of green flame. As it charges up, small orange circles will appear within that cone, which will sprout as Fingers of the Dead once the green flame reaches them.
  • Unbridled Fear -
  • Vortex Slash - The Soulless Horror casts a filling circle that deals damage once it is full; this is quickly followed by a ring outside of that circle that immediately damages anyone in it.
  • Spinning Slash -
