Saline Coat - Enhances magic defense and causes Lusca to be healed by magical damage.
Both defense enhancements can not be active at the same time (one overwrites another).
While the defense boost can be dispelled, this does not remove the absorb effect. As such, a mix of both melee and mages are recommended for this fight.
One way to counter this is using a low damage weapon with elemental weaponskills during Molluscous Mutation.
Siphon Discharge - Deals Water damage to targets in a fan-shaped area. Additional effect: Knockback
Enmity appears to occasionally reset after using Molluscous Mutation or Saline Coat.
The lusca is a name given to a sea monster reported from the Caribbean. It has been suggested by cryptozoologists that the lusca is a gigantic octopus, far larger than the known giant octopuses of the genus Enteroctopus. This makes sense given the title obtained from defeating the VNM as well as its species type.
