Runs away at low health (around 600). It changes targets very often. They sometimes deal deadly combos almost as dangerous as a demon. They have the ability to kill a level 80 knight with one strong combo. Soloing below 150 is possible but not recommended as they usually appear with many other Medusas, Hydras and Serpent Spawns.
Medusa is a mythological creature who could transform people, who looked directly into her eyes, into a statue. (See also: Medusa in Wikipedia), they deal deadly combos and can hit almost as hard as a demon.
Knights At level 150+, Medusa can be soloed by knights if you're careful. The best strategy is to always remain diagonal to them, and to combine your melee with Berserk while spamming Light Healing and healing with an Ultimate Health Potion if you get too low. When they run in red hp, it is best to use Whirlwind Throw and to try to get them to run in a direction opposite to where other monsters are, since they usually spawn with Serpent Spawns and Hydras. If you're hunting with a team of mages or paladins, be ready to use Challenge often, since they tend to retarget quite a lot. at level 190+ a knight with skills 90+/90+ should be able to solo these while only using Wound Cleansing and staying diagonal. Hunting medusa will often be with a very little waste since they tend to drop a lot of sellable items.
Paladins should kill them as quickly as possible however you can, and it's recommended that you use a blocker, since running them is dangerous in places like Banuta, and difficult since they paralyze often.
