Karamthulhu overlord

A Karamthulhu overlord is a summonable familiar released with introduction of the Summoning skill. It requires level 58 Summoning.

The Karamthulhu overlord has three types of attacks in addition to its special attack, Doomsphere Device: a close-up attack, a small water blast, and a large, magic-based water attack. Furthermore, it is capable of using several of its attacks at once. There is also a right-click option "Drown" which prompts the Karamthulhu to instantly use its magic-based water attack at the cost of two summoning points.
