Traits

Spinning

The pinwheel rotates one-quarter turn each round. Two chains sweep out in opposite directions, and each chain can attack. On the round it is activated, the pinwheel attacks with one blast toward the northwest corner of the pit and another toward the southeast corner of the pit. On the second round, it attacks toward the northeast and southwest corners. Attacks alternate in this way until the pinwheel is bloodied, when it is reduced to just one attack per round.
