Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the slowing electrified status effect when touched. This variant charges from a significantly further distance, longer range, and faster speed than the normal variant.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.
