General Notes
  • Posses a Regain effect.
    • This seems to increase greatly while idle or when a target on top of the enmity list is out of range (kiting).
  • One of Yakshi's single target attacking animations has Additional effect: Drain, which always drains the same amount of HP as it swings for.
  • Has access to the following abilities:
    • Elemental Sforzo (30 seconds of magic immunity)
      • May be used multiple times.
    • Canopierce
      • 11,000 damage distributed 15' AoE Element: Earth Earth damage + Rasp.
    • Root of the Problem
      • Absorbs up to 1,000 TP and all buffs from the target.
    • Potted Plant
    • Cordon of Apathy
      • Inflicts moderate AoE damage a Dispel.
        • Yakshi will gain a -50% HP curse aura, regen, increased magic resistance, and glow with a dark hue.
          • After gaining the Curse aura Yakshi will gain access to Tiiimbeeer.
          • Magic damage taken will go from -25% to -33% while the aura is up.
    • Tiiimbeeer
      • Low AoE damage plus Virus and a 10-count Doom.
      • May be used at any time after 50% with or without the Curse aura up.
        • This doom will also affect Luopans.
      • Since cursna may remove the curse aura instead of attempting to remove the doom itself. Players should also have Holy Waters to assist in removing the effect.

  • The aura is removed via Element: Light light damage. It may take many attempts to break the aura though.
    • Light elemental magical Weapon Skills and skillchains may proc Blue.png and seem to be the most effective.
      • E.g. A Seraph Blade doing 0 damage while double weakened removed the aura after one use.
    • Melee players will be often faced with stat down, virus, slowga, doomga, breakga, etc which will hamper skillchaining.

  • Vex and Attunement with a Bolstered Idris does not stop the application of status ailments from various TP moves.
  • Divine Caress also does not stop the application of any debuffs applied through TP moves. It will only be effective for spells like breakga.
