Raid Guide: Taking Down Lusca

Posted by Jon Wood on Dec 16, 2008  | Comments

Raid Guide: Taking Down Lusca - City of Heroes Correspondent Marjorie Rhoadhouse writes this guide to defeating Lusca in a City of Heroes raid.

No Squid Here! The term, “lusca,” emanates from the Caribbean, and refers to a legendary species of giant octopus --- not squid (or calamari) as some would have you believe.

The Facts: Heroes of any level can participate in a Raid on a Giant Monster such as Lusca, but that doesn’t make a Level 2 Empath with a single Heal, or a Tank too low for Taunt, particularly welcome. Lusca spawns in several locations within the Harbor of Independence Port. Two highly balanced, experienced teams of eight or three teams of a less acute composition are required to take down this giant octopus. Lusca’s inky spray imparts grave Toxic Damage-Over-Time that negates Fly. One thwack from a tentacle can kill. Lusca’s head cannot --- I repeat --- CAN NOT be damaged until the tentacles are all defeated. Each of the eight tentacles, plus the head, count as Giant Monsters (35,215 hit points EACH for a Level 50), and EACH award XP, Influence, Prestige and Debt accordingly. The DevilFish badge is awarded once the head is defeated.
