Propped up on two huge talons, this vulture stands as a giant over its airborne cousins. The skin of this bear-sized beast is painted in charred blackness, covered by short, stiff hairs. Though equipped with fully functioning wings, the thing appears to be flightless despite an overly abundant amount of flapping.
Vulture hearts can be dried, frozen, and broken by those with high Mechanical Lore skill to create heartstones of varying types. These can be worth a few silver to several plat and are a "must provide" material in alterations.
Sun Vultures have a stare attack that can stun you. (The stun is from any range and the vulture need not be engaged upon you to perform it.) The stuns will stack with other stuns; in particular, more than two sun vultures have the potential to stun lock indefinitely.
The vulture's eyes begin to glow a brillant gold as it turns to you!
Dodge: At the last second you turn your head from the glow, blocking out the light
Hit: You turn your head from the glow, but are unable to totally block out the blinding heat.
You are stunned by the flash of light!
The Vulture's corpse explodes when it decays regardless of whether it was searched or not, causing a long stun which can stack and some damage.
A sun vulture shudders violently before bursting into a ball of flame!
Dodge: Displaying grace and discipline, you remove yourself from the path of the fireball.
Hit: You move out the path of the hurling flame, but cannot escape all of the intense heat.
Your <body part> is burnt a bit!
