Exodia Hunt is an Arcane Enhancement for Zaws that grants a 50% chance to pull in nearby enemies on slam attacks.


Rank Radius
0 6m
1 8m
2 10m
3 12m


Can be bought from Hok for ReputationBlackx64.png 10,000 per arcane upon reaching the rank of Kin with the Ostrons.


  • Enemies pulled in by the effect, assuming they are not already under some kind of animation lock, are staggered and will be opened up to finishers.
  • Rather than the slam itself being the trigger for pulling in enemies, the slam appears to activate an invisible buff which will, in turn, pull in and stagger enemies that enter into range, even as the player moves. The buff appears to last for roughly 1-2 seconds from testing.
  • The effect is treated as an ability, which means that it will bypass LimboIcon272.png Limbo's Rift Plane mechanic and will not affect targets affected by a nullification effect.
  • Combos which include slam attacks can trigger Exodia Hunt.
  • Applies an implosion graphical effect in bright orange and green on targets affected by the pull.
    • Implosion effect colors might be modifiable, however this seems buggy.


  • Synergizes well with the Flailing Branch staff stance, which features multiple quick slams in the Autumn Leaf combo.
  • Synergizes well with the Iron Phoenix sword stance, which features a slam attack at the end of its Taking Flight combo.
  • Synergizes well with the Twirling Spire polearm stance, which features slams at the end of multiple combos.
  • Synergizes well with the Tempo Royale heavy blade stance, which features a slam attack at the end of its August Mesto combo.
  • Synergizes very well with the Rending Crane heavy blade stance, which can trigger the effect with both hits of the Skull Splitter combo (potentially a bug). Additionally, Rampaging Boar features a slam at the end of its combo.
  • Synergizes well with Hammers using the Crushing Ruin stance which features slam attacks at the end of multiple combos.
    • In addition to this, Hammers have very high finisher damage multipliers.
  • Additionally, HydroidIcon272.png Hydroid's passive effect, which causes tentacles to emerge on slam attacks, can be useful for grabbing enemies pulled in by Exodia Hunt.
    • Note that, while Rending Crane's Skull Splitter combo can trigger the arcane, it cannot trigger Hydroid's passive.
  • It is advisable to use caution when in large groups of enemies, as it is possible to become trapped within a mass of bodies.

Patch History[]

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)


We’ve adjusted the values of older Arcanes with the goal of making lower rank Arcanes more viable, and more desirable while collecting as a result. In short, there are three stats that each Arcane tends to have (speaking generally) -- for example, a percentage chance, a stat buff, and the duration of the buff.

Certain Arcanes increase all of these stats per rank (making them scale exponentially), but we are changing it so that only one stat is affected by rank (making it scale linearly). The other stats will now be at the max-rank value regardless of the Arcane Rank, thereby buffing lower-rank Arcanes as a result.
