The Negative: Devlog #7: Monster Spotlight – Gallowbrute

Today, we’ll take a look at a monster called the “Gallowbrute”.

Can we agree that this guy looks awesome?

The Gallowbrute is a Death monster that is capable of dishing out a huge amount of damage on the front line of battle. This monster makes heavy use of the “Berserk” buff, which temporarily increases the amount of damage it takes and deals out to enemy monsters. While most of the Gallowbrute’s skills are generally selfish in nature (they don’t affect allies), this monster has one buffing skill that can be used to greatly increase your monsters’ Power and Speed in battle.

Active Skills

Slam: Deals a moderate amount of damage to the target.

Headcrack: Deals a small amount of damage to the target. If the target has less than 50% HP, it is afflicted with Stun. (Stun causes the afflicted monster’s next turn to be skipped)

Berserk: Monster becomes Berserk. (Berserk monsters take and deal increased damage)

Enrage: Your monsters gain a moderate amount of Power and Speed.

Passive Skills

Temper: When this monster attacks, it attacks an additional time for every 35% of its missing HP.

Embolden: When this monster takes damage, it gains a small amount of Defense.

Apoplectic: This monster does not take extra damage while it is Berserk.

Frenzy: This monster’s Charge regenerates 50% faster while it is Berserk. (Reminder: “Charge” refers to a meter that fills over time. When a monster’s Charge meter is full, it can take a turn)

 

Suggested Playstyle

The Gallowbrute’s primary concern is to maintain the “Berserk” buff at all times. Thanks to its passive skills, the Berserk buff is much more powerful when applied to this monster than others. The “Apoplectic” skill removes the negative side-effect of this buff, while “Frenzy” ensures that the Gallowbrute can dish out a large amount of attacks when coupled with “Temper”.

But the Gallowbrute isn’t just a one trick pony. It also possesses a way to Stun targets with the help of “Headcrack”, and if this monster can’t attack for some reason (such as if it’s afflicted with the “Scorn” debuff), it can use “Enrage” to buff and support its allies instead.
