[FAQ] • [doc]

Tortured souls are monsters that appear during the Queen Black Dragon fight. They may spawn from phase two onward. Upon spawning, they release a chaotic cloud which does roughly 1000 damage per game tick, although they can be avoided by running around the area. Chaotic clouds may be lured into tortured souls or giant worms which will harm them instead. A common way to mitigate the clouds is to run through a tortured soul, causing the clouds to hit them instead. If they are not killed after a fixed duration, they will appear next to the player again, spawning more chaotic clouds. The chaotic clouds will also dissipate after a while should they not come in contact with the player or a monster. During phase two, only one soul will spawn at a time, during phase three the Queen will spawn two souls at once and during the final phase four Tortured Souls will spawn at once.

The Queen Black Dragon may "siphon" the Tortured souls at any time which will heal her with constant 200 life points and harm the souls with constant 100 life points worth of damage, healing her for a total of 4000 life points.

During the final phase, a single Tortured soul will often move into the corner of the arena and charge the fatal time stop special move which will be used if it is not killed quickly enough.
