So that you don't have to jump into the cold water unprepared, we want to go into the individual challenges in this guide and explain step by step what you have to consider. We want to talk about the most important skills of the individual bosses and how you can react to them correctly.
at Ramuh it is a simple evasive fight, in which you do not have to pay attention to many things. In addition to his normal skills, he comes sometimes Ixion to help make the fight more chaotic by area attacks. Pay attention to Ramuh especially on the buff Overvoltage protectionto make the work of your healers easier.
Ramuh – tactics and skills
In addition to the mandatory tank killer Crippling blow, used Ramuh regular ability power generationthat placed multiple lightning rods on the battlefield. Move as far away as possible from the large lightning rods, as a surface attack will develop around them shortly afterwards. The small variants, however, are harmless and serve as a safe point.
With everybody Flash of judgment distributed Ramuh a series of orbs on the battlefield. You can collect these to make the buff Overvoltage protection that protects you from Ramuh’s abilities. Surge protection is stackable, but you shouldn't have more than three stacks. If you collect more, you lose all stacks and instead receive a debuff that prevents you from collecting the orbs again. Generally you should Overvoltage protection always active when Ramuh Thunderstorm of judgment apply – without the buff you will hardly survive this area attack.
In the course of the fight Ramuh always use new types of area attacks. through electricity generation he provides two players with purple markings. Just run to the edge to put the effect there in a safe place. Later still Ixion come in and dash from the edge again and again across the battlefield. If it comes in the middle, you have to keep as close as possible to the surface effect so as not to be pushed down. Alternatively, it can appear on three lanes. Since the damage area is not shown to you here, you have to keep an eye on the edges yourself so as not to be surprised.
Later Ramuh repeating these skills all the time, sometimes overlapping and making the fight so chaotic. Every now and then he will thunderstorm deploy, covering the entire battlefield with countless AOE attacks that will also haunt you. Focus fully on dodging here and you shouldn't have any more problems with this fight.
Eden's response 2: Ifrit & Garuda
In the second act of Eden's resonance, you have to oppose Ifrit and Garuda fight at the same time. These employ versatile surface attacks that require the correct positioning of the individual group members.
Phase 1: Garuda
In the first phase you have to counter Garuda compete using various cone-shaped attacks. While you're at fear storm keep away from the blue sickles that rise from the ground, they should go through Angry storm marked players run on different sides so that the damage areas do not overlap. Sometimes players are using Out of balance marked with blue circles that explode shortly afterwards. There must be another player in each circle so that the victim does not die.
After a while Garuda vacuum interface use what divides the battlefield in half. Then follows occlusion, with several exploding bullets appearing that slide into the middle. Collect yourself here at the ball that is closest to the center (but keep yourself away from the center), as a savespot is created here.
Phase 2: Ifrit
As soon as Garuda has used all skills once Ifirt appear. This marks with Fist of fate three players who suffer damage from a cone-shaped attack shortly afterwards. These markings can be given to other players. Make sure that all markings run in different directions.
In addition to further area attacks Ifrit Sometime fire sparks deploy a line of exploding bullets around the edge of the battlefield. follows Ifrit here to the edge and position yourself directly under it, as a safe zone is created at its position.
Phase 3: Garuda & Ifrit
After a while you will be against Garuda and Ifrit have to fight at the same time. The tanks should pull them apart a bit, which gives you a better overview. In general, the same skills as in the first two phases will await you here, but they often overlap. Try to keep track of this rather chaotic phase and avoid the attacks as much as possible.
Phase 4: Raktapaksa
Finally you will get it Raktapaksa that uses a combination of known and new skills. You mainly deal with large-scale attacks that leave little space to evade. Concentrate here on your own survival and that the cone-shaped attacks from phases 1 and 2 still do not overlap.
Eden's resonance 3: idol of darkness
The Idol of darkness represents the boss in the third act of Eden's resonance. The linchpin of this fight is the various portals that appear constantly on the edge of the field and to which you always have to react correctly.
Idol of darkness – tactics and skills
The idol also features Dark nail about a tank killer who always has to be pulled away from the raid. After a short time you will be with Command: waves get busy. This area attack occurs at the edge of the field and is then carried out in a line. Just pay attention to which of the flocks of birds emerges first and avoid them with a time delay. Then arise Not portals, which represent another crux of this fight. These always consist of two entrance and four exit portals. Keep an eye on which portal color is hit first by the flocks of birds, as you can see which portals are used for the subsequent attacks.
At the attribute exchange you will be given a light or darkness buff and then have to be hit by the surface attack of the opposite color. The color of the attribute changes with every hit. This is particularly tricky in combination with the not portals, because you have to plan the element change for the exit portals here.
Finally, the forced conversion They will be teleported to the displayed location after a short time. Use this to avoid surface attacks in the add phase, for example, and be careful not to fall off the edge of the field. In the last phase you will become that Black fire to encounter. These are meteor attacks that must be intercepted by one player at a time. Here you can use the teleportation specifically to land in the circles marked for it.
Regularly two players are marked with the well-known yellow collecting points, which distribute the damage. Make sure that the group is evenly distributed over both goals so that no one dies. If you keep a cool head and don't lose sight of the edge of the field, you shouldn't have any problems with this boss.
Shiva – phase 1
In addition to the area attack Absolute zeroyou can't do anything against Shiva regularly double whammy act on the tank. The healers have to take care of both. disposal is also part of her repertoire and can have two different effects, which are announced by different language emotes and graphic effects. "The Light Brings Peace" (accompanied by the familiar red eye above the boss) stuns you if you Shiva look directly. Just turn your character away to avoid it. After each anesthetic Shiva use one of three attacks, to which you have to react differently:
- Axttritt: A large area attack. Run far away from her.
- If defense: A circular area attack. Gather right under her.
- Strict dance: A combination of the first two attacks. Simply dodges one after the other. Only in phase 3.
The second effect of disposal is an ice rink that lets you slide far off the ground. Just stand still and only move to avoid the area attacks. Avoid accidentally sliding over the edge of the field.
Looking Glass creates several green mirrors on the edge of the battlefield. These then imitate the attack carried out by Shiva is performed. Use it for example Axttritt, there will also be a damaged area around each mirror. It is not always easy to correctly predict these effects, but a single hit is easily tolerable. At least avoid standing in several areas at the same time.
Only once during the first phase Shiva diamond dust deploy. This results in a series of chaotic area attacks, to which you have to react correctly. First, the group of two players should split into the four safe zones on the edge of the field and then run back to the center. Thereupon four players are followed by damage effects. Distribute yourself in such a way that you don't meet anyone else while dodging and don't interfere with each other.
Shiva – phase 2
About three minutes after the start of the fight, will Shiva Shattered world Act. You will be divided into two equal groups. Your task here is to prevent your opponents from reaching the crystals in the middle of the platform. The connections must also be interrupted. Each hit continues to fill up the flood of light. As soon as it is filled, you have automatically lost the fight. As long as all players are alive, you shouldn't have any problems with this phase.
Shiva – phase 3
The third phase introduces some new elements into the fight. Sanctus triggers an area attack in the middle and then many small ones on the edge of the field, which you can easily avoid.
Path of light makes several circles appear on the ground, in which, depending on the number, one, two or four players must stand to avoid damage. At the same time, two players are given red markers, which (similar to Garuda) trigger a conical attack. Move with the markers so that you do not hurt the players within the circles.
As soon as Shiva's life falls below 10%, she will continue to do so Absolute zero to act. The healers must do everything possible to keep the group alive. To Shiva Death begins a sequence, after which you have to win a small race against time. Defeat the Everfrost Crystal, before Shiva the light flood magic can work completely. Again, this shouldn't be too difficult as long as all players are alive. Since there is no further damage here, the healers can fully concentrate on destroying the crystal.
