Killing the demons:

his flash mob consists of a demon boss, two black demons, 4 lesser demons and 8 imp heralds. Once the minions are killed, the boss can be attacked. At the start, however, the lesser and black demons, as well as the demon boss, are invulnerable. To attack the lesser demons, all the imps must be killed. To attack the black demons the lesser demons must be killed. To attack the boss the black demons must be killed. The boss begins with 50% of his maximum life points, that is, 200,000 out of 400,000. The boss regains his lost health by feeding from the life of his lesser demons, where he heals 3000. After the imp heralds or the lesser demons are slain, the boss will focus on his black demons, where he heals 6000 from them until they die.

The next level of demons can be attacked when the boss himself says a quote. For example, when all the imp heralds are slain, the boss will say a quote, and then the lesser demons can be attacked. However, if the lesser demons are sent to battle and the boss drains the life from both of his black demons, he can be attacked, and the demons that he sent to battle can be left alone, although it is not recommended because the boss has very high life points for his combat level.

Attacks depend on the region. All Non-wilderness and Wilderness demons seem to place all of their attention onto one person with melee or magic. Non-wilderness demons have the option of using a multi-hitting magic attack.
