When the Blue AoEs appear, use Dodge or to Evade.

If you have trust issues, you caslon bring as a group Heal.

Split Phase

The Stolen Skill you get from Slothasor is Soul Stone Venom; once activated you will cleanse all conditions on your entire squad and gain you a small amount of personal DPS for each condition cleansed.

Soul Stone Venom has no cast time and can be used off Cooldown. The downside of this is that it will cleanse only one condition as the venom stack lasts for 30 seconds and will cleanse the next incoming condition.

Take for the sacrifice to help CC, as might be wasted on the boss.

You can still apply conditions when Blood Shield is active but they will deal zero damage; because the Condition Duration of your Venoms is only 6–8 seconds you should wait until Blood Shield is down. Also make sure you don’t waste your Venoms or when Matthias goes Invulunerable at 40%.

Be mindful of getting hit by Matthias' charged-up projectile right after your Dodge or . Learn the animation tells and adjust your Evade timing.

Ritual Phase
