Kottos is the first boss of Copperbell Mines.

StrategyEdit

Upon entering the room, a single Spriggan Sifter is seen, with no other enemies in sight. Once the lone spriggan is engaged and likely nigh-instantaneously killed, waves of enemies will start spawning at regular intervals in the following order.

  • Spriggan Sifter x3
  • Spriggan Sifter x3
  • Spriggan Sifter x6
  • Flambeau
  • Spriggan Sifter x6
  • Flambeau
  • Spriggan Sifter x6
  • Flambeau

The spriggans are extremely weak with only 110 HP, and can be killed extremely quickly. AoE is very valuable here if available. The Flambeaus are a bit tougher and more dangerous - if they aren't killed in time, they will Self-Destruct, dealing damage equal to 50% of the victims max HP. As such, they should be priority targets.

Kottos will eventually appear regardless whether or not the other enemies have been defeated yet. Any surviving enemies should be dealt with before focusing on Kottos. Kottos has low health for a boss at this stage and fairly inconsequential abilities. Grand Slam is an unavoidable damage spike, and every 25% HP he loses he will use Immortalize, which will reduce his damage taken by 30% for a time.

EtymologyEdit

Kottos is one of the Hekatonkheires. The Hecatoncheires were children of Gaia and Uranus who were thrown into Tartarus as soon as they were born. They were released by Zeus, and aided him in overthrowing Cronos. They were giants depicted with one hundred arms (and sometimes even fifty heads). The name (Εκατόγχειρες - Hecatonchires) is of Greek origin: Hecaton (εκατόν-) means one hundred and chires (-χείρες) means hands.
