| Beam Manta|
OverviewEditBeam Mantas are a local species of Arieki. They resemble flying manta rays with electrical arcs coursing around their bodies. They nest in areas where the ground is rich in iron.
They attack on sight with a powerful, long range electrical damage attack. There is a visible and somewhat lengthy charge animation before this attack is used. One may be able to interrupt them before they unleash their energy.
Notable Enemies Edit
Beam Mantas are large, floating creatures that meander low to the surface of Arieki, blending in with the ground. Their long, slim tails are uniquely adapted to perform a function similar to a lightning rod.
When attacking, the Beam Manta bridges a connection between its forward attack appendages, allowing it to fire down a strong electrical pulse at its victims.
The Beam Manta electrical attack is extremely powerful. There is further investigation as to what relationship, if any, Beam Mantas have with Barb Ticks.
Electrical energy stored in the Manta’s skin makes it electrically charged, affording it protection against most energy weapons.
Lack of natural armor outside of the electrical field their body generates suggests incendiary weapons may be useful against a Beam Manta.
Short to mid range.
Beam Mantas can usually be found in small groups of 3 to 5 and are often located near Barb Tick colonies
