Koschei the Deathless

From Nightmist wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Koschei the Deathless is an undead nemesis who lurks in one of the dry alcoves in the Subterranean Waterways. It is presumed that he was imprisoned there due to the presence of a crumbling sarcophagus, but he cannot be truly killed due to his heart not being one with his body.

His evil essence prevents all but high-level Clerics (level 31 or over) from approaching him, and the size of his chamber allows no more than four characters in there with him at any one time.

His clothing is regal, a mixture of deep red brocades and a muted purple velvet, but shredded and tattered as if it was torn to bits by the gnawing teeth of rodents. Though his clothing is odd, it is not the style or substance that pulls your sight. His skin hands in shreds as if it had been carved by his own sharp, curved fingernails. Flickers of a violet light seem to leap between the shredded flesh, crackling and burning with a sound and smell that makes you nauseated.

Attacks and abilities

Koschei's attack is a simple, brutal but thankfully slow attack that hits for over 300 points sometimes, and is hard to avoid and has the potential to round your Clerics.


Use your Cleric support spells extensively, especially Consecrated Embrace to increase your damage against him. Holy Might increases stamina regain, so this is a good one to use as well.

There is a risk of Koschei's attack rounding a crit, so consider using armour spells such as Call upon Deity, Blessed Force and Almighty Retribution; these combined can reduce the effectiveness of an unabsorbed strike by a third, which has the side-effect of only requiring two rather than three heals to rectify.
