Strategy Guide

FIGHT OVERVIEW
  • This fight only has one phase.

  • The main mechanic of this fight prevents mana regeneration from most sources. Spend your mana wisely!

Hard Mode
  • Allowing 8 Saronite Vapors to be active at once will start hard mode.

  • Hard mode spawns a Saronite Animus. This add makes the boss immune to damage while active.

  • Kill the add quickly so you can damage the boss once more.

Phase 1

Ranged players should remain loosely spread throughout the fight to reduce the chance of being hit by puddles and splash damage.

Use the Shadow Crash and the Saronite Vapor ground's effect to prevent being oom before the end of the fight.
