General information[edit | edit source]

Melinoe special weapons: Khthonian Razor, Khthonian Spike

Melinoe first appear in the Tower of Judgment and are later encountered in various places in Elysium and Elysium battlefields as well as the Palace of Hades.

They move somewhat fast and can be dangerous in numbers, but otherwise are fairly weak. They react quickly to the hero, sometimes alerting nearby friendly monsters. Melinoe generally have a higher-than-usual Dexterity, resulting in a slightly increased Offensive and Defensive Ability.
