Igneo Talus Titan
|Igneo Talus Titan|
Hyrule Compendium Entry
The Igneo Talus Titan bears a striking resemblance to Igneo Talus, but is significantly larger and much stronger than its common counterpart. It is involved in one of the three trials of the "EX Champion Daruk's Song" Main Quest, in which Link must "stop a titan of molten stone." The Champion Daruk originally fought the Igneo Talus Titan to pass the same trial.
The Igneo Talus Titan appears at the northern shore of Lake Darman, where it lies in the Lake's lava and emerges as it is approached. Its characteristics and attack patterns are for the most part identical to the common Igneo Talus; its body is encased in molten rock and it attacks by launching its arms at Link, which are then shortly regrown. It can also attack by slamming its arms into the Lake's lava, creating a fiery splash. Its heated body also creates updrafts of hot wind around it, which Link can use to glide over with the Paraglider to its weakness: the Ore Deposit protruding from the top of its head. However, coming in direct contact with the Titan's molten body will catch Link on fire. Thereby, Link can attack the Titan with ice Weapons to cool it down and stun it temporarily, or approach it while wearing the Flamebreaker Set if it has been enhanced twice by a Great Fairy for the Fireproof Set Bonus. Notably, the Igneo Talus Titan does not leave the Lake's lava, requiring that Link glides over if he intends to strike its weakness directly.
After the Igneo Talus Titan is defeated, the Kamia Omuna Shrine rises from the ground nearby, thereby completing the Titan's trial.
- "Crawling flame on a mighty peak. Rudania's Champion, never weak. The hero's power shall grow. Seek trials monuments show. One, stop a titan of molten stone. Two, follow rings of light alone. Three, survive lava's fiery fate. Champion, trials await!" — Kass (Breath of the Wild)
- "A Hylian? Here? Does this mean... Are ya goin' to visit Lord Daruk's turf? That's right. I'm followin' the Great Daruk's footsteps too! In fact, I hear Lord Daruk defeated a huge monster at Lake Darman. I wonder what the monster looked like..." — Krane (Breath of the Wild)
