This came to mind…
What if a new attack was added to Cuttles?
It would be a ink shot attack which would blind you for a 3 second buff known as blindness. This attack would be able to be blocked with a shield when that is added into the game.
Also with the attack then a new type of monster drop would be added to the game as well “Ink Sack”. Which then can be processed in the extractor to obtain ink.
