Legendary Actions

The storm giant quintessent can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature’s turn. The storm giant quintessent regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Gust. The giant targets a creature it can see within 18 meters of it and creates a magical gust of wind around it. The target must succeed on a DC 18 Reflex saving throw or be pushed up to 6 meters in any horizontal direction the giant chooses.

One with the Storm (Costs 3 Actions). The giant vanishes, dispersing itself into the storm surrounding its lair. The giant can end this effect at the start of any of its turns, becoming a giant once more and appearing in any location it chooses within its lair. While dispersed, the giant can’t take any actions other than lair actions, and it can’t be targeted by attacks, spells, or other effects. The giant can’t use this ability outside its lair, nor can it use this ability if another creature is using a control weather spell or similar magic to quell the storm.

Thunderbolt (Costs 2 Actions). The giant hurls a thunderbolt at a creature it can see within 185 meters of it. The target must make a DC 18 Reflex saving throw, taking 22 (4d10) concussion damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
