Here, at the edge of the universe, await as many stories as there are stars in its sea. Of rises and falls, of beginnings and ends...of a little bird who left home with hope, yet nested in sorrow. Hearken unto these tales to be told...

Dungeon Guide by MTQcapture

Players should be aware that stepping in any of the puddles on the ground in the Pestilent Sands or the Grebuloff Pillars will debuff them with a potent poison Damage over Time debuff called Toxicosis icon1.png Toxicosis, which deals about 10,000 damage per second until they step out.

Note that failing any mechanics in these fights will result in the player who failed them receiving a two minute stacking Vulnerability Up icon1.png Vulnerability Up debuff.

Aggressive difficulty r5.png Caustic Grebuloff

  • Miasmata: Roomwide AoE that additionally spawns AoE circles around the arena. These AoEs will move across the arena in the direction of the wind, so players must position themselves to avoid them. If hit, a player will receive the Necrosis icon1.png Necrosis debuff, which must be cleansed with Esuna.png  Esuna or The Warden's Paean.png  The Warden's Paean, or it will kill them if the debuff timer expires.
  • Cough Up: Drops 3 sets of AoEs on each player, spread apart to avoid overlapping. After the AoE circles players will receive a red arrow above their head and the Craven companionship icon1.png Craven Companionship debuff. Players must be stacked when the debuff timer expires or they will be inflicted with Hysteria icon1.png Hysteria for several seconds.
  • Wave of Nausea: A telegraphed donut AoE around the boss. Being hit will inflict Necrosis icon1.png Necrosis.
  • Pox Flail: Tankbuster.
  • Blighted Water: Stack marker.
  • Befoulment: Targeted AoE circles, spread to avoid overlap.

Aggressive difficulty r5.png Peacekeeper

  • Decimation: Raid-wide AoE that also covers the outer part of the arena in fire. Contacting it will inflict Burns icon1.png Burns, dealing damage-over-time.
  • Electromagnetic Repellant: The boss summons a field that fills its hitbox, that debuffs players with Electrocution icon1.png Electrocution and deals damage as long as they stand in it.
  • Order To Fire: Spawns a number of turrets around the boss, which then shoot line AoEs directly outward from the boss. The line AoEs converge at the edge of the boss's hitbox, leaving narrow cone safe-zones between the line AoEs between the boss's hitbox and the edge of the arena. Usually combined with a targeted AoE, so spread to avoid overlapping.
  • No Future: Spawns a pattern of targeting circles, which will hit every area of the arena at some point. Stand in areas that don't yet have targeting circles, or ones that spawned later, then move into ones that just exploded. This attack has two patterns: the AoEs will spawn under the boss and move outwards, or will start from outside the arena and move inwards. The hitbox under the boss is never a safe zone, so players should avoid standing there. If the AoEs spawn from the edge inward, players can identify the safe space and move into it. If they spawn from the center of the arena, players can stand at the point where the AoEs overlap, as the next ones to spawn will spawn outward from the first and not be touching. The attack will fire two sets of circles on the first time, and three sets per cast from the second cast onward. Each successive cast is rotated such that the areas that were initially safe in the prior cast are now targeting circles, requiring players to adjust their positioning.
  • Peacefire: Spawns AoEs that will keep rotating around the boss, avoid by rotating with the AoEs. Always cast alongside Electromagnetic Repellant, forcing players to stand in the area the circles rotate through. This can be cast alongside Order To Fire, requiring the players to find a position ahead of the rotating AoEs and within the narrow cone safe zones.
  • Eclipsing Exhaust: Spawns AoE circles around the edges, with several gaps between them, then triggers a telegraphed knockback from the center of the room. Get knocked into a gap.
  • Elimination: Tankbuster. The boss fires a wide beam that will hit other players if they are too close, almost certainly killing them.

Aggressive difficulty r6.png The Last Mercy: Ra-la

  • Warm Glow: Raid-wide AoE.
  • Pity: Tankbuster.
  • Prance: Boss jumps 4 times, dealing no damage, but dropping golden circular zones that will grow, then explode in the order they were spawned in. Move into one of the last two circles, then move into where the first circle was after it explodes.
  • Lifesbreath: The boss jumps to the edge of the arena, then shoots a line AoEs through the middle. After the line AoE, a line of butterflies will spawn in the same location, facing one half of the arena in alternating pairs. (⬆⬆⬇⬇⬆⬆⬇⬇ etc...) After a short delay, the butterflies will fire a line AoE (Lamellar Light) in the direction they are facing. Players must position themselves behind a butterfly to avoid the attack. Note that you can move through the line of butterflies before they fire. If hit by the butterflies players will receive Doom Doom and must be healed up to full health to recover, or they will die. The second cast of this is accompanied by Loving Embrace, making one half of the arena unsafe to stand on. Loving Embrace fires off slightly after the butterflies' attack, allowing melee DPS to swap sides if necessary.
  • Benevolence: Stack marker.
  • Loving Embrace: The boss will raise a glowing wing, then cleave that entire side of the stage from the middle of its hitbox outwards. Move to the other side to avoid.
  • Still Embrace: Targeted AoE circles, spread to avoid overlapping.

Long-Forgotten Seashell

Why do you ask such a question? Do you not see the plague and pestilence that consumes us? Ours is a world of rancid blood and rotting flesh, where death is the only remedy to suffering. There is no meaning to be found in such misery.
But it was not always thus... Beneath the waves we knew only peace and plenty. We wanted for naught, and yet craved more, that our progeny might someday flourish as we never could. Eventually we ventured to the lands above bearing flame and iron, toppling any who dared oppose our might.
The world was ours for the taking.

— Long-Forgotten Seashell #1

Long-Forgotten Seashell

The world is not the boundless paradise we were promised.
Our population quickly outstripped the habitable land, while seas we thought would shine forever blue ran dry, spoiled in forging the tools of conquest. Cramped homes turned to squalor, and then came the sickness.
Our undoing--and the final blessing this star has to offer.
We are no longer the fools we once were. Wheresoever life goes, death will follow. Indeed, existence is but the most painful path unto nothingness--and the wise embrace their obliteration wholeheartedly.

— Long-Forgotten Seashell #2

Long-Forgotten Correspondence

That otherworldly beings should first grace us with their presence is a sign. Indeed, they understand that we--the Global Community--are possessed of the wisdom and compassion needed to guide this star back to the path of righteousness!
Yet the Freedom Fighters dare to undermine us, inviting chaos to disrupt the order we labored so hard to build. They have forgotten the history of this star and its once myriad nations. The wars waged, the countless lives lost...
They must be brought to heel, the world united under a single standard, no matter the cost.

— Long-Forgotten Correspondence #1

Long-Forgotten Correspondence

We constructed the Peacekeeper, the pinnacle of engineering and technology. This mighty war machine was designed to rid us of the Freedom Fighters, as well as any other potential threats to the peace we have so long pined for.
Its artificial intelligence ensures that this singular function is carried out with cold and calculating precision. Indeed, the 10,000 Peacekeeper units we created have now routed every threat to peace...including us. All that remains is to stand and fight.

— Long-Forgotten Correspondence #2

Long-Forgotten Essence

A curious traveler visited our star─a bird which proffered these questions: “What meaning does life hold? For what do you strive?” I could find no satisfactory answers, only bittersweet memories of an age long past.
There was a time when we were lesser, and in our nescience sought purpose─struggled to justify life's worth. That was, of course, before we achieved perfection. Now, condemned to our paradise, we understand the fatuity of existence.
Like the fledglings we once were, the poor bird could not accept the truth. It asked us again and again─hoping, perhaps, our answer might change.

— Long-Forgotten Essence #1

Long-Forgotten Essence

There was a time when we yearned to explore the heavens, found purpose in the hope of unveiling life's mysteries. A dream shattered when we reached enlightenment, and found it empty.
There was a time when we believed in our legacy, thought ourselves marking a worthy path our successors might follow. Efforts rendered futile when we discovered the keys to paradise and immortality.
As individuals we struggled to know what was right, yet in today's perfect unity there is naught left to question. We are infinity constricted by the finite, but no more─Ra-la shall grant us the mercy of annihilation.
