A, S

A = Aggressive; NA = Non-Aggresive; L = Links; S = Detects by Sight; H = Detects by Sound;
HP = Detects Low HP; M = Detects Magic; Sc = Follows by Scent; T(S) = True-sight; T(H) = True-hearing

Notes:

  • Ziz sleep from the hours of 20:00 - 6:00 game time and do not aggro during this time.
  • A Ziz's right foot has a model glitch, with one of their toes facing backwards and pointing through the rest of the foot. This is a carry-through of the original Cockatrice in other areas which have the same toe missing from their models.
  • At the start of a battle, the sack underneath a Ziz's beak is small. Whenever it does a TP move, however, it can inflate. This is especially noticeable after Sound Vacuum.

Historical Background

In Judaic legend, the Ziz is a gigantic bird said to have such huge wings that it can block out the sunlight with them. The protector of all the world's smaller birds, it was one of the three meats eaten at the "End of Times" banquet, along with Leviathan and Behemoth.
