- "There is a putrid stench of death and despair wafting in the air. Bile is creeping up your throat. Your stomach turns sour and you cannot stay long."
Bubos reduces boss HP. The HP reduction of bosses goes toward an HP 5 times the health of a non-boss monster, and is a logarithmic growth.
Bubos's summon cost is the player's current summon cost.
Bubos's cost per level is 2n, with n being equal to the next level.
All costs except the summon cost can be reduced by Chor'gorloth.
The bosses' HP reduction follows the equation:
HP reduction of bosses = -5×(1-e-0.002n)×Effect of K'Ariqua
The table below shows the effect of Dora at certain levels (without the effect of K'Ariqua).
- Bubos, Ancient of Diseases, is a reference to the Bubonic plague.
- Prior to patch 0.14, there was a bug that caused Bubos to give double his described effect.
- This ancient has the slowest convergence among the ancients whose effect converges, (Atman, Bubos, Chronos, Dogcog, Dora, Fortuna, Kumawakamaru, Revolc, and Vaagur,), along with Dora. Both effectively max out at level 18715.
