Skills and Abilities[edit]

Moonlit Rage
Bloodmoon's Mercy
Bloody Geyser
The boss spawns blood geysers that spread around each person in the group, and will apply a damage over time that will also slow you. Avoid your party members so your blood doesn't overlap and do more damage, and roll dodge away if you have to. Weave, serpentine maneuver, whatever helps you to stay out of the expanding pools of blood.
Physical attack
Bloody Cleave
Bloody Execution
Melitus stuns one target and can instantly kill them with the swing of his sword. This ability needs to be bashed by someone in the group. He lifts the sword up and brings it down very slowly, so you should have time to see it and bash it. This will obliterate even the best tanks on veteran difficulty, so bash the boss.

Quest-Related Events[edit]


As you enter the dungeon, you'll hear him taunting Adonatus Varian:

Jailer Melitus : "Oh, come now. Where's that Silver Dawn valor gone off to?"
Jailer Melitus : "Make sure this one doesn't go running off, you hear? I'm not done with him yet."

When he is approached to fight, he can say a number of things:

Jailer Melitus: "How do you taste, I wonder? I bet you're all delicious."
Jailer Melitus : "Oh good. I was just starting to feel peckish!"
Jailer Melitus : "I'll show you why I'm the one who runs this prison!"
Jailer Melitus : "Trying to escape? You'll have to get through me first."
Jailer Melitus : "Got out of your cell, huh? Well, don't expect me to just put you back!"
Jailer Melitus : "I'm sure Vykosa wouldn't mind if I killed just a few of you, eh?"

When he is fighting:

"It is time to face your execution!"
"Your heads shall make fine trophies!"
Jailer Melitus : "I'll offer Vykosa your heads!"

What he says when the prisoners are released:

Jailer Melitus : "Guards! Empty the cells!"
Jailer Melitus : "Lets give our prisoners a feast!"
Jailer Melitus : "Open the cell doors! It's time to feed the prisoners."
Jailer Melitus : "Release the prisoners! I'm sure they're hungry."

In the event of a group wipe, Jailer Melitus will also comment on that, hinting at what will happen to your corpses.

  • "You all should have stayed in your cells."
  • "Don't worry. I'll make sure your corpses don't go to waste."
  • "I'm sure my guards will appreciate some fresh meat!"
