Description Edit

Journal Description Edit

The name Half Brute understates the nature of these aggressive two-legged monsters…While their unwieldy gait makes them slow, they are capable of stomping the ground with enough force to send a powerful shockwave into all those around. - Book of Sphinx

Museum Description Edit

The name Half Brute understates the nature of these aggressive two-legged monsters, predominantly found in desert regions. A descendant of the Full Brute; a despicable lizard widely acknowledged to be extinct. - Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

The Half Brute only has two legs, but they are quite powerful. They are very aggressive, and attack with a pound to the ground. They also try to attack Sphinx with their electrified horns.

Strategy Edit

Monster's Strategy - The Half Brute will first form an electric barrier around itself. It will then approach its enemy in an attempt to ram into them. If it cannot get close enough to its target it will stop and perform a powerful stomp move. The shock wave it creates covers a large distance, so anything caught in its path will be electrocuted.

Strategy for Sphinx - Avoid getting close to the Brute until after it has performed its sonic jump. You can avoid this deadly move by running away from the Half Brute once it jumps into the air, or with a double jump over the blast, which is the safer and more efficient option. Once it releases the shock wave, its body will become vulnerable and you can attack it safely with a sword strike. Repeat this process 3 or so times to defeat it. It is also worth noting that the Half Brute will roar as it is performing the stomp attack, so listen for the sound cue if the Half Brute not visible so you can still avoid getting hit.
