Seiryu (pronounced Sayr-you) also referred to as the Azure Serpent, Guardian Beast of the Eastern Lands, and the Spirit of Purest Water[1] is a legendary serpent worshipped by the Acolytes of Seiryu. It is one of the four guardians of the Wushanko Isles and is considered the purest one by the monks, being a spirit of water.

Hundreds of years ago, Seiryu was chained and slowly corrupted by black crystals infused with the power of Xau-Tak. Seiryu would later be freed by several adventurers exploring the temple. He telepathically communicated with them and expressed his gratitude for freeing him from the crystals, stating that he sensed another being in the same torment that he had suffered underneath Forinthry, which is now known today as the Wilderness.

Seiryu is featured in the Temple of Aminishi elite dungeon as the final encounter. In Story mode his health is reduced by 50%, although the threshold for knocking him down stays the same, and his damage output is reduced by 66%.

Shards of his power, in the form of spirit dragon charms, are dropped by Slayer monsters on Aminishi and can be used to access the Spirit Realm through The Well of Spirits.

Drops

Two drops are rolled; the 100% drop and a common mob drop. For clarity, the 100% drop table is separated from the common drop table.

100%

Seiryu drops onyx dust, unless ancient scales or the chipped black stone crystal is dropped, which replaces the dust.

  1. ^ Amount dropped in Story mode is reduced to 500.
  2. ^ 4-8 guaranteed when defeating the boss in a solo encounter. There are 2 rolls; a first roll which determines a set amount of scales, while the second roll modifies it by a small amount. The quantity and rarity of the scales greatly decrease in group encounters. Turning off autolooting from the chest gives a 20% chance for the drop to be double, allowing up to 220 Ancient scales from a single kill.
  3. ^ Has a base drop rate of 1/300 (solo encounters) or 1/1,500 (group encounters), with a threshold of 60 for solo encounters and 300 for group encounters.

Trivia

  • Seiryu, also called the Azure Dragon, is one of four mythological creatures in the Chinese constellations.
  • Seiryu the Azure Serpent's concept art was done by Mod DBarker, modelling by Mod JT and animations by Mod Wing[2]
  • Seiryu was first mentioned in joint voyage of The Exile and The Whaler: "The Exile and the Whaler have heard rumours that a vein of azure on Bladewing Crag is actually the legendary dragon, Seiryu. Getting there will be tricky, but they wish to try."
  • Seiryu shares some traits with Yakamaru; they both have power over the element of water and have both been corrupted by powerful dark magic, they have the same combat level and they both are the final bosses of their respective piece of content.
  • The day after release, the life points of the black crystals were each reduced to 150,000 and 200,000 for solo and duo modes, respectively, after complaints of the length of the fight for teams of under 3 people. The same update made it so that players who fought Seiryu alone would be guaranteed 4-8 ancient scales as a drop.
