Glaring angrily and gnashing his sharp yellowed teeth, the triton radical stalks along muttering to himself as if involved in angry debate with a phantasmal antagonist. Pale, red-rimmed eyes sit deep in a heavy-boned skull, which perches upon a long, slender neck. The radical's body pitches forward alarmingly, so only the weight of his tail prevents a return to a four-legged posture. Upon his tapered brow is set a golden crown bearing a large, wave-etched crystal drop.

Hunting strategies

Triton Radicals act like polearm using Paladins. They are a dangerous both physically and magically. They also cast group buffs that protect other Nelemar creatures.

It is very important to remember that they cannot be stunned and that the scaling fork used by the 3rd floor radicals has high crit weighting. Triton Radicals are fully capable of killing an adventure even when on the ground with a severed leg. In fact, Mstrike doesn't require you to be standing and it is unlikely an adventure in offensive stance will survive more than 2 hits, let alone all 4 swings even with padded armor and redux. For this reason, it is recommend that squares attempt to sever the right hand/arm of a Triton Radical to prevent any sort of attack.

Other information

  • Triton radicals cannot be stunned.
  • Triton radicals that spawn on the 2nd floor use a wide silvery green trident and a spike-studded silvery blue round shield (large shield, spiked, 10 lb) while those that appear on the 3rd floor use a corroded bronze scaling fork (crit weighted, amount is unknown but is a high amount). All of this gear will crumble.
  • Triton radicals can cast a version of Divine Wrath (335) that manifests as an eerie crimson mist. Characters who directly LOOK at the mist are stunned and suffer major eye injuries.
