Ruddy Broodmother
Detail of the Broodmother's facial features

The Ruddy Broodmother is a dreugh that has been terrorizing the roads around Molag Mar. It is somewhat more powerful than an average dreugh and has a unique model. It can be fought in the Dreudurai Glass Mine after the Wise Woman's Potion is used on the disturbed earth, causing it to rise out of the dirt and attack you.

Some believe it to be the Ruddy Man, but the Ashlanders deny the existence of such, saying instead that it is merely a powerful dreugh. The Buoyant Armigers also have the same view, but Captain Naros believes it could be using a lesser object "cut from the same cloth" that the Ruddy Man's ancient carapace was from.

Skills and Abilities[edit]

Ruddy Broodmother uses all of the same abilities as standard blue dreugh, as well as two additional unique abilities:

Lightning Bolt
A basic double-hitting ranged attack dealing moderate shock damage.
Thunderous Burst
The Ruddy Broodmother curls into itself, as a slowly-growing but very large circular AoE appears around itself, culminating in a massive lightning explosion, dealing extremly high shock damage. This ability cannot be interrupted.
