Por Myec, The Encroaching Rot Strategies
Nearly all of Por Myec's attacks build up blight while also dealing a good amount of damage. His Fungal Sprout and Fungal Sporelings attacks are very easy to avoid and serve more as obstacles and distractions rather than actual attacks but do not underestimate them as the blight status they inflict can quickly turn the tide of battle against you.
Your largest opening for attacks is as he's channeling the Fungal Sporeling spell but right before the sporelings appear, as well as the Fungal Spray spell, but you will need to dodge through the initial portion of the arc or get behind the mage before the attack even begins. Both these moves allow for at least 3 hits for most weapons if the animations are managed correctly.
Attacks & Counters
|Staff Smash||Por Myec performs a simple downward smash with his staff. Basic melee move, easily avoided by staying away or dodging through to the Mage's backside.|
|Fungal Spray||Por Myec raises his staff in front of him and sprays a fungal mist in an arc starting from his legs and moving outwards. Get behind him before the spray or dodge through the lower section of the arc.|
|Fungal Sprout||Por Myec holds his staff in front of him with his back hand, causing mushrooms to sprout all over the arena. These mushrooms explode in proximity, inflicting damage and building up blight. Stay away from the shrooms and jump over them if you need to pass.|
|Fungal Sporelings||Por Myec grasps his staff with both hands and channels in an animation akin to stirring a cauldron. Several flying mushroom cap-like creatures appear and move across the screen in an erratic pattern. These sporelings explode on contact, inflicting damage and building up blight.|
