    Default Charmers Caldera. Stormtouched mote?!?

    After you kill Caldera there is a little orb that flys around you can tab to it its called a stormtouched mote
    This looks like something that might have some use or something.
    Just seems odd to have this random mob to fly in circles.
    So my question is does anyone know anything about it.
    Is it a bug, is it something you can interact with maybe summon an extra boss screenshot attached

    The mote is the indicator for Caelia's run around mechanic. It lets you know where her lightning beam will initially appear. Most/all bosses if I recall have some sort of indicator showing where their "laser beams" will initially appear.

    It was an old fix to her directional lightning ability, because they couldn't get her to face the way she was channeling her lighting reliably before they added the wisp and made it a rotational cast.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    Pretty sure Celia was the first HM encounter. It was hit or miss if standing in lightning actually caused damage. I always thought i had the pattern figured out, only to end up getting trolled every time.

    Aaand then they re-introduced that same mechanic - still bugged - two years later on Typhiria and Kain. Aaah, good old Trion.
