Continuing with a blog post related to my run with Hamllin (Level 13 Fighter) in the Sands of Menechtarun and in The Chamber of Rahmat I wanted to take a closer look at the gnoll, Uneeou. Uneeou is an optional orange named Windlasher gnoll that is only found in the The Chamber of Rahmat. He can be a pretty vicious and dangerous enemy.
Uneeou is a hard enemy to figure out for me. For one, he appears to be one of the many Windlasher Aeromancers who appear to be more like an arcane casters with an affinity of casting lightning based spells. However, Uneeou seems to have the extra ability to cast blade barriers, which you can see in the above screenshot above. So it seems like he is a mixture of cleric and arcane spellcasting which makes battling him pretty interesting.
To make things worse, Uneeou is always surrounded by a pack of minions. And these minions include other spell casting gnolls, powerful evokers. He also has some melee guards as well as a number of pet hyenas to make things even more annoying (mainly because of the constant trips). The easiest thing to do is to draw out the enemies a little bit at a time, hoping to pull some of the enemies away from Uneeou, as taking them all on could leave to a large mess of mass confusion and hysteria :). Not to mention, that more than likely one or more coffins will be destroyed during the battle with the with the possibility of releasing an undead mummy guardian into the fray, causing even more grief.
Even with this said, Uneeou himself isn’t particularly beefy in his hit points. While he can deal a good amount of grief to you with his spell casting, he won’t be able to withstand a direct assault for long. I’m not entirely sure if Uneeou has any resistance types. The DDOwiki mentions that aeromancers have electrical resistance, which makes sense, but I didn’t really have a chance to see that with Uneeou.
So, if you run the Chamber of Rahmat, be cautious when you stumble upon Uneeou and try to use tactics to the best of your ability. If you barrel on in, make sure you take him out and his evokers, and do your best to finish off the hyenas, otherwise it might be a bloody and messy battle. Drawing them out a few at a time might save you some time and frustration.
Well that is it for now, thanks for reading everybody and I hope everybody had a happy and safe holiday!! Also, happy hunting out in the wilds of DDO :).
