Behavior[edit | edit source]
In addition to releasing projectiles from its shoulders that deal lingering area of effect, the Saxum can do powerful slams using its enlarged "belly".
The Saxum is immune to Status Effects until both its shoulders, called Femurs, are destroyed. This also removes its ability to launch controlled projectiles, forcing it to rely on melee attacks. However, doing so will cause its broken shoulders to endlessly spew Corrosive bomblets that travel up to 15 meters from it until it dies. It will also take heavy damage over time in this state, effectively bleeding out. Given its extensive toughness otherwise, destroying its shoulder Femurs is in fact the easiest way to kill a Saxum.
After not taking damage for 10 seconds, the Saxum will start to regenerate 2% of max health per second.
Has immunity to Viral status.
The Deimos Saxum has no "head" hitbox.
The Deimos Saxum Rex releases Deimos Tendril Drones from its shoulders, instead of projectiles.
Damage Resistance[edit | edit source]
Deimos Saxum possess DR that scales depending on your weapon's DPS excluding Critical Hits. DPS is calculated by:
Critical Hits are applied after DR is calculated. Additionally, the average DPS is calculated using Health Modifiers and is quantized.
Until both Femurs are destroyed, the main body possesses an additional 80% damage resistance. After destroying a Femur, the other one will take 2x damage. After destroying the other, both locations will take 2x damage.
For proc damage, critical hits are taken are taken into account.
Where the proc damage is the per tick damage of the corresponding proc, with health/shield/armor modifiers taken into account.
Note that unlike the DPS controller for normal damage, the one for proc damage takes critical hits into account.
For heat procs, the proc damage in the above formula is the accumulated value of all the previous heat procs.
