The minotaur magus is an ugly, brutish looking beast. Taller than most average men, the minotaur has a bull-like appearance while his muscular body is humanoid with thick arms and broad shoulders. The minotaur magi feet end in hooves that rattle the ground with every step. Despite his barbaric features, a great intelligence is reflected in the depths of his eyes and mannerisms.

Hunting strategies

Minotaur magus are a clerical type creature and the oldest non-invasion minotaur. They can cast Divine Fury which can be deadly at low endrolls. They will on occasion drag their stunned or injured comrades to another room and they can sanct and raise a dead minotaur.

Raising:

>
A minotaur magus slowly raises his gaze upward, then briefly closes his eyes.

A sense of peace and calm settles over the area.

A minotaur magus begins rumbling a spell while making mystic gestures through the air.

A minotaur magus gestures at a minotaur warrior.

A bolt of soft white light streaks down from the sky bathing a minotaur warrior in it.

A brilliant glow forms around a minotaur warrior, lingers for a moment, and finally fades.  The minotaur warrior awakens looking confused and somewhat drained.

As pures, Dark Catalyst (719) is extremely effective against them.

Other information

Minotaur magi were formerly level 25. In February 2008 they experienced an upward shift to their current level and were moved to their current location. For more information on the updates, please see the following saved posts:
