General Gameplay Tips

It is extremely important that you stay above 90% HP at all times to benefit from the damage modifiers of and , and the bonus Critical Chance from !

Soul Stone Venom has no cast time and can be used off Cooldown.

Be careful when Matthias uses . Even if a Druid placed , will take priority if you are in his hitbox and reflect all 15 stacks back to Matthias. In the case that you do not have someone consistently negating , you can instead stand at max melee range and do any attack other than to intentionally eat some of the damage to gain Blood Fueled to increase your damage by 10% for a short duration. You should disable your auto-attack setting in this scenario.

Use to move away when you get mechanics and use and to return to Matthias.

Use your Pistol / Pistol set during the pre-event on the second island. This allows you to range DPS the shard down while standing on a button. You can use this at 20% if you are ported as well.

Take here unless add management is a problem, in which case use instead. If adds are not cleaved effectively, may not actually hit Xera during the Breakbar.

Your group won't kill the Arm before it lifts back up, but it will definitely die in the second burn as people use their Conjured Slash. You should therefore save and Throw Magnetic Bomb to use on Conjured Amalgamate's main body.

Start your burst on the Arm before it lifts back up, and don't do a second burst; save it for after, when Conjured Amalgamate's main body is vulnerable.

Once Conjured Amalgamate is vulnerable don't activate your burst yet. Use the standard rotation of:

  • Dodge.
  • .
  • .

Begin your burst rotation once the orb collection has finished and Conjured Slash has been used on Conjured Amalgamate to give at least five stacks of Fractured.

During the second burn remember that Conjured Amalgamate phases at 25%, so adapt your burst timing. You will most likely have to start it during your teammates Conjured Slash casts so pay attention to it.

The Stolen Skill you get from Sabir is Unstable Artifact. This can be used as a Shadowstep between platforms, for DPS or to apply soft CC via Immobilize.

Constantly pay attention to the number of stacks of Violent Currents. Until you have five stacks, it is better to eat incoming damage and stand in front of Sabir to reach five stacks.

To avoid , instead of using the Tornados to jump over it, you can instead use or Unstable Artifact to teleport through the wave as it approaches you. You can take a few steps back away from the boss to make timing this easier. Teleporting over the wave is key to having good DPS on this fight as it increases you DPS uptime and maintains the stacks of Violent Currents.

If you're using Unstable Artifact, be cautious of the cast time and Downed teammates. If you Pull a Downed ally to you, then you won't teleport over the wave, resulting in you going Down, and possibly getting the other person hit again, resulting in their instant death.

Breakbar Phase
