The story of Agdistis and her demise is the stuff of legends, and Nemjiji frantically makes notes in the margins of her records as you recount your tale. However, her scrawling makes it difficult to tell whether these are embellishments or scientific musings. Either way, ere your quest is through, parchment and ink may very well become a precious resource in Claudien's workshop.

Raid Guide by MTQcapture

Please note that the arena does not have a border, and players can fall/be knocked off if they are not careful. Before the fight, players should split into four pairs of two, with tanks and healers partnering with a DPS each, and then assigning spread positions on the intercardinals (IE northwest, northeast, southwest and southeast). Next, players should determine one of those pairs who will move inwards to the center of the spread groups for a later mechanic, as well as spread positions around a semicircle. Finally, players will need to create two light parties, with a tank, healer and two DPS. Most sources of avoidable damage will result in a Damage Down icon1.png Damage Down debuff, as well as other various effects. Most sources of unavoidable damage will result in a short Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff that will cause lethal damage if players are hit by more than one mechanic at a time.

Abilities


  • Spark of Life: Unavoidable raidwide AoE that deals high damage. Inflicts Bleed icon1.png Bleed.
  • Dispersed Aero II: targets both tanks with a high damage tankbuster. Inflicts a Windburn icon1.png Windburn debuff that deals damage over time.
  • Condensed Aero II: A shared tankbuster that targets the main tank. Inflicts a Windburn icon1.png Windburn debuff that deals damage over time.
  • Blades of Attis: Calls three large AoEs that move slowly in a straight line across the arena.
  • Immortal's Obol: Places a proximity marker in the center of the arena, and creates three safe areas for players to stand. When the attack finishes, the boss destroys the arena, and anyone not in a safe zone dies immediately.
  • Forbidden Fruit: Summons various yellow eggs to the arena, that transform into different adds, each with a different effect. Note that neither the eggs nor the adds can be targeted.
    • Egg with Teeth: Transforms into an Immature Minotaur, which will perform one of two attacks depending on whether it tethers players.
      • Bullish Swipe (no tether): Turns towards to the nearest player and telegraphs two wide conal AoE aimed at the two nearest players, which will shortly resolve.
      • Bullish Slash (tether): Will tether one player. The single tethered player will be hit with a wide conal AoE, dealing proximity-based damage as seen by the tether visual, and inflicting a Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff.
    • Egg with Eyes: Transforms into an Immature Io, which will perform one of two attacks depending on whether it tethers players.
      • Static Moon (no tether): A circular AoE attack that fills one of the smaller platforms, making it unsafe to stand on.
      • Static Path (tethers): Will tether four players, either all DPS or all tanks and healers. Each tethered player will be hit with a large line AoE that inflicts high damage and a Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff.
    • Egg with Scales: Transforms into an Immature Stymphalide, which will perform one of two attacks depending on whether it tethers players. The direction each add is facing is indicated by an orange marker.
      • Stymphalian Strike (no tether): The add will use a large line AoE attack in front of itself.
      • Bronze Bellows (tethers): Will tether one player. The add will dash in a straight line towards them, inflicting high damage, a knockback that can be mitigated with knockback immune abilities, and Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up.
  • Hemitheos's Holy III: targets both healers with a stack marker.
  • Bough of Attis: The boss hits either the front of the arena, dealing lethal damage, then slides one of its arms forward, knocking players from the arena, or the rear of the arena, dealing lethal damage. Both attacks debuff with Down for the count icon1.png Down for the Count, stunning any player's hit.
  • Inviolate Bonds: All players will be inflicted with either Inviolate Winds, which drops a small AoE under the player, Hemitheos's Holy, a stack mechanic, or both. Both markers also have either a I or II, indicating what order they will resolve. Players will receive these debuffs based on role (tanks/ healers or DPS), so tanks and healers may receive Inviolate Winds with a I, meaning their debuffs will resolve first, while the DPS receive Inviolate Winds with a II, meaning they will spread out second. One player from both roles will also receive a Hemitheos's Holy I and II, which work in the same way. The name of this debuff does not indicate its order, so players will have to check their debuff list.
  • Roots of Attis: The boss will break one or multiple of the bridges connecting the smaller arenas. Standing on the bridge when this happens will kill the player.
  • Multicast: The boss will cast both Hemitheos's Aero IV, a massive knockback, and Hemitheos's Holy, a high damage AoE dropped on each player that also inflicts a short Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff.
  • Burst (no castbar): The boss calls four meteor circles to the arena, which each require a player to stand in to mitigate damage. If a circle is empty, the raid will take massive damage (Big Burst).
  • Inviolate Purgation: All players will be debuffed with Purgatory Winds, Hemitheos's Holy, or both. This attack functions the same as Inviolate Bonds, except each player will have two sets of Winds to handle, and two sets of Holy. The debuffs also drop massive AoEs when they resolve that will detonate shortly afterwards.
  • Light of Life: a high damage raidwide AoE.
  • Hemitheos's Glare: All players will be marked and be followed by a large AoE for a short time.
  • Famine's Harvest: Two eggs will spawn on each platform, and two off the edges. Players will have to handle the mechanics of the ads that spawn from the eggs.
  • Death's Harvest: Several eggs will spawn on the platforms and bridges, and players will need to handle the mechanics appropriately.
  • War's Harvest: Eggs will spawn on the platforms and bridges, and players will need to locate safe zones for each add.

Strategy


The boss will start with a strong raidwide AoE that deals a Bleed icon1.png Bleed debuff which needs to be mitigated and healed through. The boss will then use a tankbuster, either Dispersed Aero II, and AoE requiring the tanks to move away from each other and the party, or Condensed Aero II, requiring the tanks to share the attack. Both versions deal high damage and a Windburn icon1.png Windburn debuff. Which attack comes out is completely random, so tanks will have to be ready to move. Following this the boss will use Blades of Attis, calling three sets of moving AoEs to the outside of the platform. Players should identify which AoEs are moving across the arena on a diagonal and move into where they fired from after the AoE has fired twice. This will come along with Immortal's Obol, so players will need to move to one of the safe zones on the arena.

Once the arena reforms and the Blades have resolved, the boss will cast Forbidden Fruit, summoning two Immature Stymphalide and an Immature Io. At the same time the boss will cast Bough of Attis, targeting the south platform and Hemitheos's Holy III on the healers. Players need to identify where the Io is, as that platform is not safe to stand on. The Immature Stymphalide will both fire their AoEs through one of the platforms, so players will need to stand in the intercardinals of the platform in a tight grouping to avoid the attacks, while also standing stacked for the healers. The boss will use another tankbuster, then Spark of Life. Healers should be ready to take care of the main tank, as they can be taking a lot of damage.

The boss will then cast Inviolate Bonds, inflicting all players with debuffs. Players will need to check the order their Winds debuffs fire in. Players who have a Ion their debuff will take their spread positions, while the rest of the group stacks in the middle to handle the Holy stack. Immediately after, the players with II on their debuff will swap places with them, handling the attacks the same way. The boss will also use Bough of Attis, attacking the front platforms then sliding its hand across them, so players will have to move to the new safe platform before the second set of debuffs fire. Following this, the boss will use Roots of Attis and destroy the northern bridge, so players will need to move to one of the other platforms. The boss will use another tankbuster, so tanks should break away from their group and head to the southern platform to handle the mechanics, then move back.

The boss will use another Forbidden Fruit while also casting Multicast. The three Immature Stymphalide will each fire over one of the bridges, so players simply need to avoid those attacks. For handling Multicast, players should be spread out to avoid the Hemitheos's Holy that drops a large AoE on each player, and pop knockback resistance to handle the Hemitheos's Aero IV. These attacks will resolve at roughly the same time, so positioning is key. The boss will use Roots of Attis once again, so players should move off the bridges and into their light parties on two separate platforms. The boss will use another Forbidden Fruit and summon three Immature Io's, while also marking healers for stacks. Players will need to wait by the edge of the platforms to move immediately on to the bridges that spawn to avoid the Io's attacks, staying in their groups to mitigate the stack.

The boss will use another Bough of Attis, and players will have to watch which hand will move forward. Another tankbuster, then Forbidden Fruit, summoning an Immature Io on one platform, and three Immature Minotaurs on the other two platforms and in the center of the bridge. Each player will tether to one of the ads. Players who tether to the Io must move to its platform and spread out in a semi-circle and face towards the center of the bridge to ensure the line AoE from the ad fires away from other players. The players who tether to the Minotaurs must move away until their tethers turn purple, and the untethered players must bait the conal AoE from the Minotaur in the center of the bridge to fire away from the other platforms, then move to the edge of the Io's platform to avoid the attacks from the other Minotaurs. If the tethers of the Minotaurs are not purple, the tethered players will take high damage and a massive knockback. Each attack also inflicts a short Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up, so getting hit by more than one attack will kill a player.

The boss will use another Blades of Attis, Hemitheos's Holy III and Hemitheos's Aero IV as the arena reforms. Players should return to near the middle, stand in their light parties directly to the left and right of the center, then allow the knockback to move them towards the Blades. Players should stay stacked to handle the Holy, then move into the Blades original starting position. The boss will follow up with another tankbuster, then cast Forbidden Fruit, summoning four Immature Stymphalide while also casting Burst and placing four markers on the intercardinals of the arena. The Immature Stymphalide will tether to a player, while the untethered players must stand in the circles. To handle this, tethered players should move to the opposite side of the arena from their Immature Stymphalide and use a knockback immunity skill as they see the orbs getting close to the circles to prevent other players from getting clipped by their attack. Once this resolves, the boss will use another Spark of Life, then another Immortal's Obol, transforming the arena once again.

The boss will cast another Forbidden Fruit, summoning two Immature Stymphalide and an Immature Io, as well as casting Inviolate Purgation, giving debuffs to players. To handle these mechanics, players will first identify which platform the Immature Io spawned on, as that platform cannot be used. From there, players should dedicate one of the other platforms as a Holy platform, since the Holy debuff drops a massive donut AoE. Holy debuffed players will stack with the players who have Winds II at the edge of the platform furthest from the other platforms. Players with the Winds I debuffs will move to the other platform and spread to their intercardinals on the platform, with one of the players moving to the center under the Immature Stymphalide. Once the debuffs fire, players will return to the center to heal and mitigate, then players who have the Holy debuff will move to the same platform the last Holy was cast on, and the Winds II players will move to the platform the Immature Io was previously on, standing in their intercardinals with one player in the center of the platform. This back and forth will repeat until all the Winds debuffs have been dropped. It is highly recommended to have a player call these positions out, if possible. Once all the Winds debuffs have been dropped, all players will move to where the last Holy was dropped to stand in the Donut AoE. The whole time the boss will be casting Light of Life, an unavoidable raidwide AoE, so healers will need to be mitigating and healing while moving.

The boss will use another Forbidden Fruit, calling two Immature Stymphalide to the platforms, leaving one open. The boss will also cast Hemitheos's Glare, targeting all players with a large AoE that will follow them slowly, then use Roots of Attis to destroy the bridges. Players should stack on the edge of the empty platform out of the line AoE of the Immature Stymphalide to bait the AoEs, then move towards the platform with the Immature Stymphalide that isn't facing their platform. The bridges will reform in time for players to move across them. Players will simply move to the center of the other platform to avoid the AoEs.

The boss will then cast Famine's Harvest, summoning two Immature Stymphalide and six Immature Minotaurs to the platforms. The Immature Stymphalide will fire their line AoEs, while four of the Immature Minotaurs will tether to players, and the last two will turn towards players and fire a conal AoE. To handle these mechanics, players will determine which platform only has the Immature Minotaurs on it, as they are the ones who won't tether. Untethered players will move to that platform and bait the AoEs off the edge away from the other players while also standing in the safe zones from the Immature Stymphalide. The other players will move to the opposite platform to their tethered ads and spread to either side of the platforms to avoid overlapping their attacks. All attacks will fire at the same time. Each hit also debuffs with a short Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up, so overlapping attacks will kill players.

The boss will follow up with Death's Harvest, summoning three Immature Io's and two Immature Stymphalide. The Io's on the bridges will tether to players, while the Io on the platform will perform its AoE, and the Immature Stymphalide will fire line AoEs in the direction they are facing. To handle this, players tethered to the Immature Io on the southwestern bridge will move to the northwestern platform and spread in a semi-circle behind the Immature Stymphalide ad, while the players tethered to the Immature Io on the northern bridge will move to the northeastern platform behind the Immature Stymphalide. Again, players need to spread sufficiently to avoid overlap. All attacks will fire at the same time, and players should move to the northern bridge for healing.

The boss will cast War's Harvest, summoning two each of the Immature Minotaur and Immature Stymphalide, and one Immature Io. All ads will tether to players. The players tethered to the Immature Io should move to its platform and spread behind it as before, the players tethered to the Immature Stymphalide should move to the southern platform and spread apart to avoid overlapping, and the players tethered to the Immature Minotaursshould move to the opposite edge of the northwestern platform, spreading to avoid overlap. Though the tethers won't turn purple, players will still not get a Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff for this and will survive as long as they have some form of mitigation. Once again, these attacks will all resolve at the same time. All players should then meet at the southern platform to heal and mitigate the Spark of Life that is coming.

Players will then break into their light parties to mitigate a Hemitheos's Holy III, then move to the platform opposite where the boss's Bough of Attis will cleave, then players simply need to burn the boss down before enrage, as it will cast two Spark of Life, then a slowcast Light of Life as the enrage. If players can't defeat the boss before the cast completes, they will wipe.
