Difficult new content is being added to Lost Ark at a steady pace for those who have reached the game's late stages. Legion Raids, which consist of multiple phases and are instanced, are the first of these to be made available. The raid bosses will challenge the mettle of even the most experienced gamers.
The Valtan Legion Raid is the first step into what many Lost Ark players consider to be the game's best end-game content. Some of the most demanding media ever produced is included here. Any group of players hoping to complete this Legion Raid with as little stress as possible will undoubtedly appreciate some pointers to help them along the way. You'll find some of our best advice for easing your way here.
The Most of a Purple Wolf's Attacks Are Directly In Front Of It.
The Legion raid's initial phase pits players against a wolf that can divide in two. In the beginning of the encounter, while the player's health is between 50 and 45, they face off against a single Boss, the Purple Wolf. His assaults are predominantly frontal, therefore staying at a distance or on his back flanks is the best strategy. Players should be wary of three specific attacks, however.
After using the 360-Swipe attack, there will be an explosion in a circular area surrounding the boss, creating a safe zone either very close to him or very far away.
Three waves of four Shurikens launch in an outward "+" and "x" pattern, forming Lost Ark gold. During other Stages, this assault is also present.
Upon spawning, pools appear beneath the player and detonate shortly afterwards. In addition to appearing in Phase 1, this assault is also featured in Phases 2 and 3.
The Art of Using a Miracle Cure
Panacea, a consumable Battle Item, should be equipped in your fast bar in advance of the raid. Many of the negative bonuses will be removed from the fight. It can be used to protect yourself and the raid from harm, or to sidestep the monster's mechanics so that more time can be spent dealing damage to the boss. The top three applications are as follows:
Between 45 and 30 health bars, the boss in Phase 1's Red Wolf Phase inflicts a bleeding debuff that slowly chips away at the player's health. When applied a third time, this debuff will trigger an Area of Effect assault, severely damaging anybody in its path.
At the beginning of Phase 2, Valtan places four blue orbs at the arena's four corners, one in each cardinal direction, and then surrounds them with concentric red telegraphs. If a player comes into contact with one of these orbs, they will be affected by a debuff that makes them more vulnerable to damage.
Another phase 2 feature is a counterable strike by Valtan, which, if successfully executed, renders the target speechless. Due to the contagious nature of the debuff, affected players typically need to flee the group.
To Inflict Twice as Much Harm, We Aim Thirain at the Sidereal Power Source
You can expedite the period where the Wolf Boss splits into a Blue wolf and a Red wolf by using the Sidereal Power from Thirain. You can see that Thirian uses a linear pattern of attack. Both bosses can be hurt by this ability, however it depends on where the raid leader is in relation to them when they use it.
The use of taunt-based abilities can assist line up bosses for Thirain's assault. The Gunlancer's "Shout of Hatred," the Berserker's "Endure Pain" with the Taunt Tripod, or even a Taunting Scarecrow Battle Item if your raid doesn't contain any of these classes, are all examples of taunting abilities.
The Brilliant Cure-All That Cancels Out the Orb Mechanic
Splendid Panacea, the enhanced Battle Item, is an improvement over the original Panacea. As an added bonus, you will be immune to debuffs for 2 seconds. For the Blue and Red Orb mechanism at HP Bars 30 and 15, this can be quite helpful. To avoid a debuff, players typically touch one orb each, in a specified order. As soon as they come into contact with another orb, they will be destroyed instantaneously due to the debuff.
If a player uses a Splendid Panacea right before being hit by the orbs, they won't take any damage from them. Therefore, a straightforward tactic for this mechanism is to have one player position himself at the boss and the rest of the players stand far away. The orb collector utilizes a Splendid Panacea right before completing their task. Once the orbs are gathered, the boss can be safely Staggered by everyone. If you want to really put him down, though, utilize the Sidereal: Wei for some more stagger.
The Art of Dodging the Fear Machine
When the Wolf Boss's health drops below 30 bars, it will once again merge into a single Purple Wolf form. About once every two minutes, they will target the player they have been terrorizing with a deadly attack.
The Sidereal Marker Rises As Blue Orbs Are Collected
When you reach the second phase and face Valtan himself, you'll need to destroy the arena's pillars so you may safely evade the area-of-effect attacks. It's common for players to attack the arena's pillars and walls in a counter-clockwise sequence, beginning at 3 o'clock. The blue orbs on their pillars fall to the ground when he smashes them. All players that contact one of these orbs will receive a benefit that will keep them alive until a subsequent mechanic is activated.
It can be tricky for less experienced groups to make sure that each player only touches one orb when employing the Sidereal Power of Balthorr. Once this mechanism has been completed without incident, you can switch to using the Sidereal Power ofThirain to deal greater damage and end the battle sooner.
