Overview

The Saichania is a playable herbivore creature in Beasts of Bermuda. It is a large, durable creature that possesses many defensive abilities that greatly help it defend against any would-be attacker.

Thriving in battle, the Saichania can use its weaponized tail to cripple its enemies, oftentimes causing them to limp almost immediately after receiving a hit. The Saichania can also turn in place to ensure its tail is facing its opponent, but even if caught by surprise at the front, it can defend its head by using its spiky shield, reflecting incoming damage right back at the attacker.

Unfortunately, all these defensive capabilities come at a big cost: a severe lack of mobility. The Saichania is a terrible runner, and will often find itself unable to escape certain deadly situations.

Abilities

Unique Signature Attribute: The Saichania is immune to injury, meaning it will never suffer from bone-break.

  • Primary Attack: A fast tail swipe to the left. It deals high damage and injury, and costs a moderate amount of ability power.
  • Secondary Attack: Has identical damage values to the Primary Attack, except it makes the Saichania swipe to the right instead of left.
  • Special Ability: The Saichania unravels its aptly-named "Spiky Shield" ability, which massively reduces incoming damage for a few seconds. While active, any attacks made on the Saichania will be reflected back at the attacker (for a minimum of 50% of the damage dealt). This ability costs an enormous amount of ability power per activation.

Tips

- It is highly recommended to invest in Combat talents to allow your Saichania to defend itself significantly better.

- Play with a high FOV to observe your surroundings better, ensuring that even your blind-spots are within sight.

- Placing your head against a wall is a good strategy to force carnivores to approach you tail-first.

- An aquatic Saichania build is possible by maximizing the Swim Speed and Strong Lungs talents. A swimming Saichania can prove very difficult for a Mosasaurus to kill.

Weakness

- Though Saichania doesn't have many predators, a very large pack of apex predators will be able to overwhelm a lone Saichania.

- The Saichania often fails to flee from nearby floods and tornadoes, and perhaps not even locate shelter in time.
