Even though the beast is huge, it can jump and cover a lot of areas. This makes it very agile and swift in the battleground. When taking the leaps, it can shoot fireballs at you in between. The main attribute you have to keep in mind is its Hellfireblight Ailment. The Hellfire will gradually spread to different parts of its body during the fight.
