FIGHT OVERVIEW
  • Two phase fight. In P1 you fight Diurna and deal with regular waves of multiple different adds that spawn in groups.

  • In P1, split your raid in 2. One group deals with the boss and destroys the eggs. One group deals with the regular waves of adds. Keep the boss and the adds far away from each other.

  • In P1, constantly move Diurna near new eggs and use the beams of her staff to destroy them. When all eggs have been destroyed, or after 5 minutes, P2 starts.

  • In P2, adds stop spawning. There's only Diurna left and she deals increasing damage. Diurna cannot die until all eggs have been destroyed.

HEROIC CHANGES
  • In P1, breaking an egg inflicts a burst of damage to the raid and applies a 10 second 200% vulnerability to this burst. You will need to stagger exploding the eggs.

  • In P1, the Wildfire debuff on players now also gives stacks to nearby players. Make sure to spread!

  • Most adds gain an extra ability. You can read through them below.

PHASE
1

Groups of adds constantly spawn and need to be killed. Keep them 50yd away from Diurna and split your raid in 2 groups. One group deals with the boss while the other deals with adds.


Use the staff from the boss to destroy the eggs in the room. When all eggs have been destroyed, or after 5 minutes, P2 starts.

Rapid Incubation
2s Cast

Regularly, the 2 eggs closest to the boss are marked and will hatch after 15s if not destroyed, spawning a Nascent Proto-Dragon that just auto-attacks its target.

Greatstaff's Wrath
Extra Action Button

After each Rapid Incubation, Diurna plants her staff into the ground and gains 2 stacks of a 10% damage done buff.


Each stack allows 1 use of an extra action button when next to the staff on the ground. Using the button will cause a beam to follow that player, dealing damage to anyone hit and destroying any eggs in its path. 1 stack is removed per use.


When an egg is destroyed, the boss deals a burst of raid damage and inflicts 200% more damage on the same burst for 10s, forcing you to stagger the destruction of the eggs.

EVERYONE

DODGE THE SWIRLS.

Another must-have by Causese if you play or are planning to play tank. It informs you when to taunt and how your co-tank is doing with their mechanics.
