A group of players fighting Xarpus.

Xarpus has three phases:

1. Recovery (Phase 1):

- Severely weakened, Xarpus channels energy from the ground by exhuming 25 skeletons to rapidly heal, gaining 6 health points per tick for 15 ticks.
- This can be temporarily halted by standing on top of the exhumed remains.

2. Poison (Phase 2):

- After some time from Phase 1, Xarpus begins attacking players with the amount of health it had at the end of Phase 1.
- Releases poison that damages any player in a 3x3 grid centered around the player Xarpus was targeting.
- The poison occupies the affected tile throughout the entire fight, inflicting basic damage of 4 to 8 per tick.
- Damage increases based on the number of skeletons Xarpus was able to absorb.

3. Counterattack (Phase 3):

- When Xarpus's health drops below 33%, it enters Phase 3 and stops releasing poison.
- Instead, it stares at one quadrant at a time. If a player attacks it from that area, Xarpus counterattacks with a poison strike with a base damage of 50-75 per hit.
- Base damage increases by a percentage equal to 40% of the relative increase in Xarpus's stats from absorbing the skeletons.

These are the main mechanics of the encounter with Xarpus in the Theater of Blood. Good luck in the battle!
