Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Pelagic Guardian is an Eldritch type that appears in the Cove. These grueling adversaries will almost always guard an ally before taking any other action, ensuring their pelagic brethren that they may inflict both physical and psychological horrors upon their enemies from behind the safety of their abyssal defender. This, combined with its high protect and health, make it a nuisance that cannot be ignored, and should be dealt with by inflicting Blight or Marking for increased damage.

Octocestus does not do much damage, but does inflict bleed. Plague Doctor's ability to cure bleed and inflict blight make her invaluable against this type of foe. Uniquely among average-sized monsters, this one will not trigger any stall penalties when left alone, not stress damage nor reinforcement call. As long as the heroes can stunlock it or otherwise deal with its continuous bleed attack, it can be used easily to restore health and remove stress without camping.

Note that this creature is unique in that it is the only size 1 creature that you can keep fighting against without worrying about gaining stress or enemy reinforcements for taking too long to kill it. Therefore you can use it, ideally with a stunner, to stall-heal hp and stress.
