Lurker

LURKER MONSTERS

When you're looking for that perfect combination of "tricky" and "dangerous", that's when a Lurker should strike.
Lurkers slip in and out of safety to deliver devastating strikes.

Lurkers require precision to take down - the right kill order, the right timing.
If the battle falls into chaos, they'll rip their enemies apart.
See for yourself what they can do!

Ambush Skills

Using Ambush Skills: Ambush Skills can only be used when the Lurker starts its turn in the back row. In addition, as long as the Lurker knows at least a single Ambush Skill, they receive the Hidden passive automatically at no slot cost. Don't forget to make a note about Change Row's delay (20D) on the monsters sheet as well - you'll be using it a lot.

While the monster is in the back row, it takes -20% damage, in addition to the normal row penalty. If there are no allies in the front row, this bonus is lost, and the monster takes +30% incoming damage from all sources regardless of whether it's in the front or back row.
