Entrance
The Dravanian Hinterlands (X:20, Y:26)
Patch
3.2

Although you succeeded in destroying the core of Gordias, it seems that was only a temporary measure. The walking fortress has stirred once more, and its left arm now rests on the banks of the Thaliak. The entrance lies open and unguarded, suggesting the goblins inside are as surprised as you. Take advantage of your enemy's unreadiness and face the Illuminati threat once more─hopefully for the last time.

Strategy

The Fist of the Son Guide
  • Tank the boss in the corner to make it easier to avoid the very large AOE from bombs.
  • When the boss changes to his giant form, he will apply a debuff 4x, stunning the main tank on 4th and then wind up for a tankbuster. Off-tank should temporarily provoke the boss at 4 to intercept the tankbuster. After recovering, the MT then takes it back to resume.
  • Adds will spawn in the corners of the room; they need to be tanked.
  • If you get a red-orange marker over your head, run away from the party. This will drop a large puddle.
  • The tower in the center of the room has a purple circle around it. Standing near the circle brings up two puddles on the sides of the room:
    • Red puddle will turn you into a gorilla, giving you a skill to knock bombs far away from the party before they explode. (More bombs will spawn each time he summons them. First one, then two, then three.)
    • The violet puddle will turn you into a bird. When the boss is extra large and uses "Boost," become a bird or you'll likely die to his mulitple groundpound attacks. Skill #1 allows you to do a little damage, skill #2 will turn you back into yourself.
