The Greek gods sunk Atlantis to punish Atlanteans for their arrogance, but they didn't do it on their own - they sent Lotan to do their dirty work. After sinking the island he stayed there and, for millennia, has been in control of the fallen empire of Atlantis.

Role: Curser

Overview

Lotan, one of the most forgotten monsters to ever be created. Its main role is to apply Nightmares, Daze, Slow, and random negative status effects to all enemies. Lotan's gimmick is to cross your fingers and hope you get a good negative status effect, and if the enemy is too strong, then you PER them. AoE Daze isn't that good, but better than just damage. He's too slow to be a good curser, too weak to be an attacker, and not tanky enough to be a good tank.

Pros:

  • Access to 4 different negative effects, Random Negative Effect and PER
  • PER skill with no cooldown
  • Mostly low cooldowns

Cons:

  • Bad stats and movepool
  • AoE skills have 3 cooldown
  • Moderate stamina costs

Recommended Moveset

The Anomalocaris who sank Atlantis

  • Yawning Area (AoE 35 Dark dmg + Daze, 37s, 3 CD)
  • Abyssal Power (AoE 20 Special dmg + PER + Random Negative Effect, 39s, 3 CD)
  • Sunk Claws (55 Special dmg + Nightmares, 31s, 1 CD)
  • Distant Forces / Profound Steal (Forces for 40 Special dmg + Slow + Stamina Leak, 31s, 1 CD) / (Steal for PER, 25s, 0 CD)

Recommended Runes: 3 Speed; 2 Speed, 1 Team Speed.

Recommended Allies

  • Deniers and Tanks are Lotan's best bet on surviving. His speed is his biggest weakness and Hardened isn't so good when your speed is terrible, so a denier will do the trick to ensure Lotan can use his moves. Tanks do well taking the damage for Lotan. It is best to use a tank with Mega Taunt like Santerion. Since Lotan's best move takes 3 turns to use again, it is best to use a monster that can use CDDA, like Captain Copperbeard.

Counters

  • Lotan can easily be defeated by a good Light attacker, such as Grumpex.
  • A stamina drainer, like Wangzhou, can force Lotan to recharge instead of attacking due to his moderate stamina costs.

Fun Facts

  • In the Baal Cycle, Lotan was a sea monster, representative of chaos, defeated by Baal. This tale is analogous to the story of Yahweh defeating the Leviathan in the book of Job.
