Attacks and Moves
Shares all of the same attacks as the HC Barroth.
Dracophage Bug Release: It will open its mouth and spit out two swarms of Dracophage Bugs that weren't eaten. After spitting them out of its mouth, the swarms will target one random hunter before flying towards them and exploding on impact. This attack will cause Dragonblight.
Tail Chase: The HC Jade Barroth will look at its tail before chasing it like a dog and spinning in a complete circle. While chasing its tail, it will fling multiple snowballs around it while running in a circle. This attack causes Snowman.
Dragon Puff: It will try to breath Dragon like Deviljho but it will instead breath a puff of Dragon that sends it backwards. This attack is really short range, even in Rage Mode, and causes Dragonblight if hunters are hit.
Triple Head Fling: It will back up before fling its head forward and upwards, three times in a row, while sending snowballs from its body to hit hunters around it that avoid the attack.
Crushing Bite: It quickly bites forward and bites some of the ground. When it bites the ground, it will be stuck for a few seconds and break free before eating some of the snow/ice.
Ice Crusher: Burrows into the ground before bursting out of the ground, sending three blocks ice-covered rocks at hunters. This attack causes Iceblight.
False Bite: The Jade Barroth will look at a random hunter before trying to bite them. When its about to bite, it will quickly stop and do its Dragon Puff attack.
Snow Snot: It will put its head on the ground and shoot five snowballs from its nostrils infront of it like a shotgun. This attack causes Snowman and Iceblight.
- Despite sharing a few attacks with the HC Barroth, its appearance is suggesting that this species is going through different changes.
- Its been speculated by the Guild that these HC Jade Barroths are possibly a subspecies of the Jade Barroth never seen before.
- These Jade Barroths are quite strange compared to the normal Jade Barroth and even quite different from their Sandy Plains cousins.
