Kronox

Health: 2,500,000

Abilities:

    • No Escape: behaves like a cleave, do not stand in front of him.
    • Keeper’s Gaze: spawns 4 adds on the outer circle after a 5 second cast. Kill them and stand in the red pools that are dropped, these give you a DPS boost.  If an add sees you, you get stunned and the add casts Self Destruct which will kill you.
    • Arc Blast: occurs once every 30 seconds knocking you back followed by a 5 second cast. Get inside the green zone or you will die at the end of the cast.
    • Purge: occurs after 2 Arc Blasts, look for the emote “Kronox prepares to obliterate anyone who is not behind cover”. You then have 4 seconds to run behind a pillar after which he starts casting Purge for 20 seconds as well as sending 1 add to each pillar. Kill the add and remain behind the pillar to stay out of Purge.

 

Psychophage Primakov

Health: 2,500,000

Abilities:

    • Caustic Concotion: purple circle ground AOE is placed under the boss after a 3 second cast, stay out or be dealt 3.5k damage per tick.
    • Chemical Spray: casts for 3 seconds after targeting a random player then throws a bottle which deals 8.5k damage.
    • Forced Conversion: chases a player for 7 seconds.  If he reaches the player they will become mind controlled,. Aggro is reset after the 7 seconds so the tank needs to pick him back up.
    • Lethal Hallucinations: when his energy reaches 100% it will trigger 6 Lethal Hallucinations to spawn with 104k HP. These need to be picked up by tank and AOE them.

Fight reduced to one sentence; run away when your name is emoted and stay out of purple AOE on the ground.

Pro tip: if you have an ability to drain his energy (ie. Mana Wrench or Debilitating Poison) you can stop him from spawning adds.

Overseer Cowel

Health: 1,900,000

This boss is not melee friendly so choose your spec wisely for this fight.

Phase 1:  in this phase you’re goal is to make 3 Stormwatch Militis or Stormwatch Sicaris explode on top of the boss. They place a yellow bubble around them when they are ready to explode but won’t if you kill them before they do. Be ready to stop DPS as soon as the bubble appears and get out of it. These things happen fairly quickly so be prepared.

Phase 2 begins when the boss becomes active and ends when he is at 50%. This phase involves dodging the add explosions (which you can kill to negate their explosion) as well as the red rockets being fired from the turrets and the purple circle which increases in size.

Phase 3 starts when he reaches 50% HP and continues until he dies. All of the same elements as the previous phase are still present and a red circle is placed on a player as well which radiates outwards around him. Soundblast, a boss ability which lowers everyone to 10% HP and pulls you into a melee range AOE which can kill you if you don’t move out fast enough, get caught next to an exploding add or if he is tanked too close to a purple circle.

You should have at least one person looking for adds which continuously spawn throughout the fight in the front right and back left of the room in order to kill them before they overrun the group or kill your healer.

General Thunderscar

Health: 2,500,000

Abilities:

    • Electric Bolt: main attack which has a 2 second cast.
    • Wild Lightning: hits a random player for 5.5k damage after a 3 second cast.
    • Suppressing Winds: places a (?) second snare debuff on a random player after a 3 second cast. Whether it is dispelled or allowed to fall off on its own, it drops a slowing circle on the ground which effects anyone that walks through it.
    • Furry of the Thunder: everyone is pulled to the middle and a 7 second channel starts, everyone must get outside the arena by running onto the edge otherwise they will be oneshotted. After the cast is over lasers will appear on top of the arena these can be dodged either by standing in front of the fans taken out during the event before the boss, or you can jump back into the arena.
    • Lightning Wisps: 5 wisps spawn every 20 seconds and go after a player, if they hit anyone they will gain a stacking debuff that increases Air Damage they take. Can be dispelled.

If you can jump up and down the arena and dispell the slowing debuff effectively, this is a fairly easy fight.

General Typhiria

Health: 2,500,000

Abilities:

    • Surge: 4 lightning balls shoot out diagonally with no cast warning. Melee: in order to avoid this stand either right behind her or on her left or right.
    • Storm of Torment: red bubble in melee after 7 second cast, run out.
    • Agony Torrent: lightning orb is shot at a ranged player after a 5 second cast which needs to be avoided.
    • Storm Blast: 5 seconds cast. Move out of the yellow area.
    • Dragon Form: she will transform into a dragon for 30 seconds every minute and chase the tank, kite her, she also puts Searing Flesh on party members.
    • Searing Flesh: deals 7.5k damage per second to adjacent players. Spread out.
    • Pain Lash: 7 seconds channel deals aoe damage.
    • Unknown: Stacking debuff on the tank: for every ability of hers that hits your tank, she will gain 1 stack of Unknown and when the stacks reach 10 the tank is mind controlled and you will wipe.  This ability is reset when she enters Dragon Form so ensure that your tank is avoiding all of the lightning damage and only being hit by autoattacks.

 

If everyone is ranged in your group this will be an easy fight and let you learn the fight better. If you’re group has some melee with slow reactions it won’t be easy.

  • Pablo

    Regarding Overseer Cowel phase 3:
    Soundblast can be (and should be) avoided by breaking line of sight, to do that tank should pull him to right corner looking from entrance, giving everyone a chance to hide behind the add spawning place. *Stopm* (his melee wipe attack) can be avoided by moving out of it’s range, which can be a bit hard as he snares everyone close.
