Bog Lurker (Etrian Odyssey III) Edit
A gigantic insect that lives in clusters in the depths of the 1st Stratum.
|Skills||Life Absorb, Defend|
Bog Lurker is another FOE that can be found on B4F, but they will only appear after confronting Narmer.
They will wander about in straight line in the room after Narmer runs away for the first time. Luckily, they will not chase you. After defeating Narmer, they will remain in the room as routine FOEs.
They aren't much of a challenge, being weaker than other FOEs you have met this far. Their main objective is to weaken you for Narmer to finish off. While their attack power is lacking, they have high defense, which they can increase even further using Defend. Aside from that, they have no weakness aside from Bash, forcing you to waste TP on it, or limit by running away. On top of that, once its HP gets below half, it starts using Life Absorb, dealing high damage and recovering its HP by half the damage dealt.
The best way to defeat it is using elemental attacks, with your zodiac preferably, or with an arbalist, although the damage is much lower. Overall, its recommended to avoid it on your first fight against Narmer, and come back later to fight these.
- Life Absorb (Uses ???): Deals damage to one party member and heals itself for the damage.
- Defend (Uses ???): Increases the physical defense for 3 turns.
