Sea Sload are a variant of Sload who hail from the undersea kingdom of Ul'vor Kus. Known to be even more reclusive than their Thrassian cousins, Sea Sload often tend to form cabals among themselves to achieve common goals, which then break up or reform as those goals change.
In addition to necromancy, the Sea Sload are also skilled in the arts of alchemy, shadow magic, and mind magic, as well as other arcane disciplines. Sea Sload utilize various deep sea creatures, such as the yaghra, as servants and soldiers.
Known Sea Sload
The Abyssal Cabal
Four Sea Sload formed an alliance during the Three Banners War. Calling themselves the "Abyssal Cabal", they partnered with the Court of Bedlam in order to sink the island of Summerset and reclaim it:
- B'Korgen — a "male" alchemist who has taken control of Welenkin Cove and transformed the yaghra into even more powerful creatures.
- K'Garza — a "female" necromancer who has taken control of Karnwasten and is performing necromantic experiments.
- K'Tora — a "male" sorcerer who specializes in mind magic. He has been imprisoning adventurers within a mind trap in Eldbur Sanctuary. K'Tora is the leader of the Abyssal Cabal, and can be encountered in the Psijic Relic Vaults on Artaeum.
- Z'Maja — a "female" sorceress who specializes in shadow magic. She has taken control of the Gryphon Knights of Cloudrest, turning them into shadowy minions.
Skills and Abilities
- "Sea Sload are powerful, large, and revolting beings that use telepathy to speak. They are engorged, slug-like monstrosities, but their portly form belies immense magical prowess." —Prima guide description:218
- Summons two pearlescent orbs; one near the Sea Sload, and one near a target. A Sload group boss may summon as many orbs as there are opposing players.
- Mental Manipulation
- Moves pearlescent orbs (Alchemical Globules), which explode if they strike a player target. Pearls moved by Mental Manipulation move quicker or slower depending on how far away the pearl is from where it is going.
- The Sload creates a shield of psychic energy around itself. When the shield is attacked, it may release AoEs which snare and inflict Mind Magic damage to those who step in them. The AoEs also activate pearls, which summon Yaghra when they're hit by Hallucinosis.
- Cognitive Dissonance
- Summons two hydro-portals, one in front of the Sload and one at least 15 meters away, allowing them to teleport.
- Mind Blast
- A beam of energy channeled at their antennas that deals mind magic damage at one target and staggers them. Group boss Sea Sload can hit multiple targets with this ability. Being hit by this ability also makes you the prime target for nearby Yaghra.
- Engorge the Horde
- The Sload congeals a ball of energy, releasing it to target nearby Yaghra and applying a buff. It appears as a moderately sized AoE.
- The Sload calls an orb to it and absorbs it, granting the Sload rapid health regeneration. Group boss Sea Sload can absorb multiple orbs simultaneously. Destroy as many orbs as you can find to prevent the Sload from healing.
