If you've played Nuri's at all, you have probably been introduced to the seemingly crazy one-hit kill from regular mobs, regardless if you were wearing an elixir or not. Most predominantly on Haunted Symphony, but scattered elsewhere throughout the campaign as well. I have seen some of the very best bears that I know of go down instantly, and good luck if you are a bird or int mage. Boomclickpow you're dead.
I have noticed two procs, "Death Shot!" and "Tomb-Stoned!" in the area where it happens. It almost always happens when there is a group of 3-5 mobs, usually the skeletons and the purple mage mobs. Now, "Death Shot" is probably pretty obvious what it does (massive damage, although not positive if it necessarily is insta-kill by itself), but does anyone KNOW what "Tomb-stoned!" is, or have any logical theories?
I know that when I approach a group of these mobs, I target the skeletons first...it seems to lessen occurrences of the insta-kill. I do not think it is a "double hit" like someone suggested, so to speak, but I think maybe the purple mage mobs have some massive debuff that I have never been able to catch on my avatar screen, perhaps "Tomb-stoned" and the skeletons fire the "Death Shot!". Or the skeletons do both, and they are slightly different somehow.
Or since there is so much going on with a full party in the midst of 3-5 mobs and everyone is firing skills and it's difficult to see what came from where, is it possible that one of these is a new equipment proc for us?
Any theories? Pls discuss.
p.s. Also, while goofing off on my bear and mage, two separate times I have had people say "don't kill teh Painto clonez, it makez him stwonger rawr!". Uh, all the groups I ran with, we smoke the clones first, as it "seemed" to make him easier to take out. I know that just going straight after Painto and ignoring the clones, it "seemed" to take longer with the same group. Is this another "Teh Keeper stealz your mana shields!!!" unfounded rumor?
