"The Shadow of the Ashen still lives. No longer bathed in light, his corruption is complete." - Malik Khal

King Omar is the former ruler of Lathyrus. As the Shadow of the Ashen, he serves as the penultimate boss in Ashen.

Story

King Omar was the incumbent ruler of Lathyrus at the end of the third Age of Light. He became obsessed with the fading light; when Amiren sundered the Twin Hearts of Lathyrus, King Omar scavenged the Human Heart and hid it and himself away in his palace.

Amara was his daughter.

Tactics

  • Shadow of the Ashen is a highly mobile boss. For the first half of the fight Amara will be helping you in addition to your normal partner. He has a very large cleaving radius and occasionally spins, so keep your distance and choose your moments. He can also cover a lot of ground very quickly, so always be ready to dodge even when he isn't focusing on you.
  • Shadow minions will spawn throughout the fight. You can choose to keep a distance from them and focus on the boss, but later stages of the fight can get a bit crowded if you take this route.
  • He will occasionally warp to the middle of the room and charge an attack that temporarily covers the center of the room in fire. He'll be inactive for a few seconds while the floor is still on fire, so if you're feeling brave and have health to spare you can use this chance to cross the fire and get a few free hits in.
  • At 50% he will remove Amara from the fight and become far more aggressive. He does not gain any new abilities.
