Hydra Fury (standard, at-will)

The black blood hydra makes five bite attacks (either death bite, acid bite, or blood bite), and any additional bite attacks it gains from regenerating heads (up to eight attacks when reduced to 248 hit points or fewer)


Each time the black blood hydra becomes dazed or stunned, it loses one attack while using hydra fury on its next turn. The hydra can be dazed or stunned multiple times.

Regenerating Heads

When a black blood hydra first reaches 744, 496, and 248 hit points, a head is destroyed. At the start of the hydra’s next turn after a head is destroyed, two heads grow in the lost head’s place, and the hydra gains an additional bite attack with hydra fury.

Threatening Reach

The black blood hydra can make opportunity attacks against all enemies within its reach (3 squares).
