Veteran Karka are large karkas that lay eggs which spawn Karka Hatchlings and transfers conditions. It also has two phases: Armored & Exposed. While armored the Veteran Karka can apply retaliation as well as perform a rolling knockdown attack. When exposed, the Veteran Karka will have another full life bar and loses the ability to apply retaliation and roll, but will attack slightly faster.
- Karka have two health bars; the first acts as their shell's "durability", while the second is their actual health. Each time the shell loses 25% of its total durability, the karka will evade for 2 seconds and gain Retaliation or Regeneration for 30 seconds, alternating between the two.
- Once the shell's durability has been depleted, it will break, replacing Armored with Broken Armor, exposing the karka's health, which will be 50% of the armor.
