Arachnos

Arachnos (from Greek άραχνος — full of spiders) is a purple, green, or rusty orange coloured kind of monsters that are half spider and half man. They are found in several places around Greece (Act I) and Orient (Act III) and usually attack in medium-sized groups. Although not difficult individually, their pack-nature can make them dangerous.

Special

Notes

  • All arachnoi (άραχνοι) have an attack animation unique to their kind. Instead of delivering a blow with their weapon, they make a hissing sound with their abdomen and then attack with their front pincers. Despite its unique animation, this attack apparently doesn't have any special effects and inflicts standard damage.
