Malkarion is the Escalation Boss for Shock Icon.png Shock Escalation.

"Slayers who prove their worth in Shock Escalation will earn the right to take on a Malkarion —a quick-striking, aerial menace with the power of lightning at its call. With the ability to hover just out of range, this sky serpent will have you reaching deep to overcome its shock assaults."

The Malkarion weapons use a Bond instead of a Unique Effect and have a Legendary ability.

Legendary Ability: Teleport to a Behemoth, dealing Shock Icon.png Shock damage. Usable once, but resets on Behemoth kill.
