Salta is always accompanied by 2 Magidracky in battle. These Magidracky attempt to cast shield weakening spells on the hero while Salta attacks. For the first half of the battle, Salta uses series' of club strikes in various patterns. For the second part of the battle, he fires projectiles from his eye from a distance. Many of these projectiles are returnable, which is the primary way to damage him.
