Slam (standard, at-will) Acid

Reach 3; +27 vs Fortitude; 1d10+7 damage, and ongoing 10 acid damage (save ends). If the target cannot see the caustic slayer, it instead takes 2d10 + 7 damage, and ongoing 15 acid damage (save ends).

Slayer's Fury (standard, at-will)

Melee or ranged; the caustic slayer makes two basic attacks

Caustic Breath (standard, recharge ) Acid

Close blast 5; +26 vs Fortitude; 2d10+7 acid damage, and the target takes ongoing 10 acid damage and is slowed (save ends both).

Sight-Burning Cloud (standard, recharge ) Acid, Zone

Close burst 2; the burst creates a zone of corrosive grit centered on the caustic slayer that lasts until the end of its next turn. When the slayer moves, the zone moves with it, remaining centered on it. Any creature that ends its turn within the zone takes 20 acid damage and is blinded until the end of its next turn. The zone’s area is heavily obscured for all creatures except the caustic slayer, which treats it as lightly obscured. Sustain Minor: The zone persists

Malleable Form

A caustic slayer can squeeze through spaces as though it were a Large creature.

Description: Fine salt crystals and other caustic minerals form a gritty, malleable body around flexible bones of shifting rock, creating a towering form of streaming particles and writhing limbs. Although the creature is enormous, its constituent parts are so fine that it moves with unexpected ease.
