Combat and Tactics
Anub'Kraken are the hardest enemies in the Tomb of C'Thiris. They will lurk in the bottom levels, and deal heavy damage to any intruders. They will use one of two attacks. Most often they will send a string of 6 orbs that will explode on contact. This attack is very hard to dodge, as the balls follow the player, and is deadly at close range. The other attack is rarer, but the Kraken will start spinning, going for the player. It's best that the player makes use of height difference when either of the attacks are used - Anub'Kraken always spawns in areas with 2 floors, so player can move in between them to dodge its attacks.
If timed correctly, the lightning balls can be just barely dodged by rolling twice in a row to the side, or thrice away from the Kraken. This way the homing balls will disappear before reaching the player, and is one of the best ways to approach Anub'Kraken as a warrior.
Another tactic is to prepare for each one when you encounter it. All the enemies in this dungeon lack the ability to jump. So a simple dirt wall that is 2 blocks high - across the corridor in front of a doorway - will give you the ability to jump to the far side and shoot at an Anub'Kraken while avoiding all of its attacks. If you are a warrior, jump on top of the wall, attack a few times and then fall back behind the wall when it starts attacking you, or just hit through the wall with long-reach weapons such as the Sun Cleaver.
