※ “Dynamo” and “Chariot” are the moves used by Nael van Darnus. The full name for these skills came from “Lunar Dynamo” and “Iron Chariot,” respectively.
Lunar Dynamo is an area of effect skill in which the boss does a donut type attack, leaving the safe spot beneath the boss, while Iron Chariot is an area of effect attack that happens in a 360 degree circle around the boss, requiring players to move away.
These moves, as well as others that have similar mechanics are typically labeled by players as “Dynamo” or “Chariot” and are used as a common language within the community.
