Ancient Hermit (Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold) Edit
|A crab that has lived for ages in its highly durable shell.|
|Items||Mossy Shell, Polished Shell (conditional), Shut Shell (ingredient)|
|Weakness||Fear, Curse, Sleep, Panic, Paralyze, Poison, Blind|
The Ancient Hermit is first encountered in 26F of the Forbidden Wood. While they have a measly 12 HP, they are immune to all forms of direct attack in that they only take single digits' worth of damage. Though not exactly a threat on its own, the Ancient Hermit is capable of buffing the defenses of its companion monsters using Ancient Guard, making them harder to kill, and if left alone for too long, can summon an Asterios into the battle regardless of where the player is on the map. Thus, it becomes of utmost importance to kill these monsters quickly. Fortunately, they are incredibly vulnerable to many ailments, and a single turn's worth of Poison damage is enough to kill them.
- Ancient Guard (uses head): Greatly raises defenses of party for 3 turns.
