Saurian Sages in the Chamber of Hesitation

Ten Saurian Sages spawn in the Chamber of Hesitation every five days.

Saurian Sages (also known as Snowy Saurians) are white Saurians with the ability to cast magick, including healing magick.

They use a spear for physical attacks and for casting spells.

They are fond of the cloak and counter tactics Sulfur Saurians employ, and often use their white scales to camouflage themselves into the terrain around them. Like other Saurians they rest attached to walls, dropping from above in ambush if approached.

Saurian Sages are considerably more durable than their lesser brethren, even when casting spells they have a great stagger resistance. They are weak to Dark based attacks and resistant to Holy.

Cloak Spec Saurian Sages are able to cloak for ambush attacks or regular attacks and are always cloaked when on the ground. They will however lift the cloak to cast spells.

Tactics

  • Cutting the tail prevents the Snowy Saurian from casting spells, it will also lose its spear. Unlike other Saurians it will not flee, but instead become more aggressive, and its attack strength increases.[1]
  • Strong against Holy enchanted weapons and spells.
  • Weak against Dark enchanted weapons and spells
  • Vulnerable to Silence.
  • Can be Petrified
  • Vulnerable to Torpor and Poison.

Pawn Bestiary Knowledge

For full information, refer to Bestiary or the according section on the Saurian page. Enemy specific:

  • Susceptible to Silence - can be granted by Saurian Strategy Vol. 2
  • Weak to Dark (Pawn quote: "Darkness works well.")
  • May be necessary to slay the Saurian Sage who casts Anodyne on its allies first (Pawn quote: "Slay the healer first")
  • Witness and get hit by the spit attack

In addition to witnessing these techniques, it is necessary for Pawns to participate in killing 100 Saurian Sages either with their own Arisen or while travelling with others.
