  • Black Shuck is very similar to regular Cerberus, just with much less hp.
  • Black Shuck will use Draw-In.
  • Support should position themselves in the tunnel to the north-east of Black Shuck's position to minimise elemental agro.
  • Black Shuck will use regular Cerberus weaponskills, in addition to using a 'Howl' move, during which he will take no damage. This howl switches to one of four possible attack modes.
  • Summons 8 Nocuous Infernos.
  • Magma Hoplon style Blaze Spikes.
  • Gates of Hades. After Gates of Hades has been used as a Howl move it can be used as a regular TP move.
  • High accuracy and attack, but cannot use abilities.
  • The most dangerous part of this Assault is when the Nocuous Infernos are summoned. They will not spawn with hate but they do aggro magic, if possible it should be avoided having any casting jobs on the front line, so that only a few elementals will be aggro'd by your casters in the tunnel. These can then be kited around until they despawn.


Defeat Black Shuck.
