Ulaman, Sovereign of the Well is a boss that can appear in the Abyssal Depths. They are a member of the race of creatures known as The Lightless, the main focus of the Abyss Challenge League.

Mechanics

At the 75%, 50% and 25% hp thresholds, Ulaman will retreat and open an entrance into a sub-zone containing a Stygian Spire. A timer of 90 seconds, only active while in this sub-zone will begin to count down. If all three encounters are not completed within the allotted total 90 seconds, Ulaman will escape. Once each Spire is defeated, an entrance will appear to return to the main arena. Two of the opened tunnels will be on the left side, the other two on the right.
