Further Notes
  • Antaeus is the Mega Boss for Dynamis - Qufim. Defeating him successfully completes Dynamis - Qufim and grants every player in the alliance a Dynamis - Qufim Sliver, which is required for access to Dynamis - Tavnazia.
  • Once spawned, players in the alliance will have 30 minutes to defeat Antaeus. If all alliance members are defeated, Antaeus will despawn after a short while.
  • There is a very low chance that Antaeus will drop four of the 100-value currencies.

Historical Background[edit]

Antaeus was a giant in Greek mythology. The offspring of Gaia & Poseidon, he was extremely strong and was invulnerable as long as he was in contact with the ground (his mother, Gaia). If he should be lifted off the ground, he would become incredibly weak. Antaeus had a habit of challenging everyone walking by to a wrestling match. He would always win, killing them and collecting their skulls, which he was using to build a temple to Poseidon. Hercules passed through once and Antaeus challenged him to a match. Hercules won by holding Antaeus up in the air long enough for him to die. In Dante's Divine Comedy, Antaeus is a giant who guards the Ninth Circle of Hell.
