Gelidra – Hardmode Strategy/Guide

Health: Gelidra – 34 Million HP    Amrien – 31.7 Million HP

Suggested Raid Setup:

HARDMODE SUMMARY

The hardmode will be initiated by breaking the shield on Amrien (in an ice block behind Gelidra, you can kinda see him in the image above)

New mechanics:

  • Everything hits harder
  • Amrien – new boss that must be DPSd down with Gelidra. HP needs to be kept within 10% or they will both enrage and kill the raid. He has slightly less health than Gelidra and is attackable in her air phase so make sure you balance your DPS out between the two properly. They should be tanked in the center of the room to minimize the effects of the hardmode mechanics. He alternates between two new deadly abilities.
  • Razorwind Blizzard – cast by Amrien, a targeted aoe explosion (somewhat like ) that will freeze those in the vicinity of the explosion and leave a dot on them that ticks for 20k for about 3 seconds. Hurts you a little if you’re in the pathway but will not freeze you.

Artifex Zaviel – Hardmode Strategy/Guide

Health: Artifex Zaviel – 49.4 Million HP:

Suggested Raid Setup:

 HARDMODE SUMMARY

The hardmode will be initiated by killing the idol that will spawn on the left side of the room. Do not waste any DPS on the boss because she will full heal after the idol is defeated and hardmode is activated.

New mechanics:

  • Everything hits harder
  • Spheres of Repair - can no longer be interrupted. These should be burned down ASAP ST after the idol is defeated to keep her from healing much.
  • Lasers! – Very similar to last phase of Crucia lasers, but spawn 5 at a time. Give a warning pulse for about 4 seconds before they are placed. The red circle itself isn’t harmful, but the laser beams inside will kill you. By the time a new set spawn the old set will fade away.

 

BOSS SUMMARY

Zaviel has a time-based alternating first phase (which now includes lasers as well) and a very movement heavy laser and wave dodging second phase

Phase 1: Boss, Spheres, Orbs until 50%

2 Parts: Boss Phase, then Power Conductor phase -> repeat til 50%.

Artifex Zaviel – Hard Mode Strategy

This is outdated: Find the full guide by clicking here!

For anyone who may be working on hard modes, I’m providing a preliminary strategy to the hard modes that I have information on. These may change as more information comes out, but most of the important mechanics are mentioned below – it’s too early to define “the best” strategy on hard modes at this time.

The fight is similar to non hard-mode, so ensure you’re familiar with Artifex Zaviel on normal. I hope you are, because going right into hard mode probably isn’t the best idea

Artifex Zaviel – 49,4 Million HP

Destroying the idol will activate hard mode with Zaviel.

Raid Makeup

The raid makeup doesn’t really change a whole lot.

Changed or additional abilities/mechanics:

[/list]

Strategy:

The strategy is basically the same as non HM, minus the few new mechanics. The only thing that should be done differently is the orbs should be killed instead of kept alive, and that’s where tacts and incidental AOE will come in handy. Otherwise it’s just stay out of lasers, do more and faster deeps and heal lots, and the fight will die.…

Gelidra – Hard Mode Strategy

This is out of date. Click here to view the more current/detailed version.

For anyone who may be working on hard modes, I’m providing a preliminary strategy to the hard modes that I have information on. These may change as more information comes out, but most of the important mechanics are mentioned below – it’s too early to define “the best” strategy on hard modes at this time.

A lot of the mechanics are similar to Gelidra non HM – so take a peak at that guide if you want to brush up.

Gelidra HP: 34.0 Million HP

Amrian (mini boss) HP: 31.7M HP

Raid Makeup

The raid makeup doesn’t really change a whole lot.

So the first thing you’ll notice – Amrian is new. In order to engage the hardmode – you need to break Amrian out of the shell that protects him.

Amrian Abilities:

Strategy:

There’s a few main things to take note of here: Like on Twins Amrian and Gelidra have to die close together- otherwise Amrian will enrage. The disparity can be no greater than 10% – so you’d likely want to keep them within 2-5% of each other at all times except when Gelidra is about to run into the middle.…

Gelidra – Strategy

General Introduction:

Gelidra is the 1st boss in Frozen Tempest which is a 2 phase fight that alternates between the two phases. For the first 40 seconds, Phase 1, you fight her until she switches to Phase 2. In order to return to Phase 1 you need to kill the Shrouding Vortex.  After the first switch from Phase 1 to Phase 2 she will do it every minute throughout the fight.

Raid Make Up:…

Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli – Strategy

General Information:

Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli are the third Boss encounter you will engage within Frozen Tempest and you will attribute some of their peculiarity to King Molnar and Prince Dollin.

Suggested Raid Composition (if using 2 tanks on each twin and splitting sides):

Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli – 35.6 Million HP

Main Abilities:


Strategy:

At the beginning of the fight there will be yellow and blue areas around the pillars which will give the giants stacking buffs. Yellow buff will increase the damage output of the giant while the blue buff increases the damage they take. Throughout the fight the giants need to be moved from one pillar to the next to drop the stacks.

The most important part of this fight is pay attention to their HP’s, there can be no more than 5% difference between their health, in order words, they have to die at approximately the same time. Ensure the dps in the two raid groups you will have have comparable dps.

When you first pull the giants it is necessary to separate the two otherwise they gain a massive damage increase.…
