Picture

“So close to freedom…”

II – Intermediate events

Picture

​Second Island:
Elite GL-XC S7L – has explode skill. CC when break bar is open. He becomes invulnerable at 75%.
​First Island:
One from the party must activate this mini event by triggering (just going near) NTPD Mk 5.1 located at the opposite edge of the platform. When you hear this robot says, “Alert! Alert!” the mini event will take place, the green-colored mini cubes (GL-XC S7S)with 1 vet (Veteran GL-XC S7M) will be vulnerable for “DPS-ing”. Just clear mobs and a Ley-energy wind will appear at the back of NTPD Mk 5.1 after he says “Disengaging“. Take this to transfer to the next island.

Picture

​The ball practice (Globolla Marble Mechanics) occurs next, in the same island. A white giant ball will bounce around the island. Players must have 1 person on the path where the ball will bounce. You can see the ground marked with while flat circle, and the next bounce area is lit with a smaller flat white circle, so you can predict where it will hit the ground next (there are 2 bounce areas on the higher platform of this island, 1 or 2 from the party can cover this area while the rest cover the ground bounce areas). Once the ball is bounce out of the island it will open another Ley-energy wind as access to the next island.

Picture

Picture

Fourth Island:
Elite GL-XC S7L has explode skill (you can see red floating circles around him where it would deal damage once it touches you). This mob has boons, one person can do boon stripping on this boss. It re spawns normal GL-XC S7S cubes, Veteran GL- XC S7M cube, and Red Balls (bomb-deals DPS). These “side-mobs” can be ignored and focus on the Elite enemy since they will disappear once the Elite’s HP goes down to 1% and becomes invulnerable. Mistlock Singularity is available on this island to be used in the 2nd boss.
​Third Island:
Another set of GL-XC S7S mobs and Veteran GL-XC S7M. Clearing these mobs opens a Ley-energy wind as access to the higher platform of this island. At the edge of the upper area, jump and use special action key (Hypernova) to transfer to the 4th island. However, this can be skipped by: upon arriving to the 3rd island, go to the east side, jump and Hypernova to the next island. Some people find this difficult and fall or get stucked at the falling edge of the next platform if they did not hit the right spot upon using the special action key.

Globolla Marble Mechanics: the ball bounces around. A player jumps to the predicted bounce surface to keep the marble bouncing until it reaches Artsariiv. Failure to be at the predicted bounce area will trigger Beaming Smile + Artsariiv’s transfer to another corner

If you fall, you will be ported in a higher area, use your special action key (Hypernova) to land on a tile safely. Delay Hypernova until you’re sure that the tile you will land will not get a red arrow warning. If you land on a disappearing tile, it will be auto-death.

3. Red ball (Solar Fury) – this is a warning that he will spawn ball bombs toward each player that will bounce until the edge of the platform. The bounces leave a trail of deadly red circles.
WHAT TO DO: when this Red Ball above his head turns to White Diamond, all players must use the special action key (Hypernova) towards Arkk when the diamond is about to disappear (the balls will bounce back to Arkk). It can be reflected or distorted as well. (This mechanic is crucial for all players to do. A person can be good and dodge all the deadly red circles on the ground but it can damage/down other players (especially glass builds). Thus, wasting time to res downed/dead people).
(Solar Discharge) – 360-degree knockback wave that comes right after Solar Fury.
WHAT TO DO: jump the wave.​

All from party were able to bounce the ball back to Arikk using hypernova/reflect/distort. Note: Solar Discharge (360-degree wave) also seen (always comes right after the Red ball).

Picture

Effect of bounced ball back to Arkk: No red circles that cause burn scattered on ground. Note: Solar Discharge is also seen in the image.

Other Foes:

1. Elite Archdiviner (Skill: knockback + pull) + 4 Fanatics in each side
appears on Arkk’s 70% HP

Solar Bloom Phase: (appear 3x during the whole fight phase: 80% 50% 30%)

1. 4 Solar Blooms appear in between pillars.
WHAT TO DO: Drag each bloom towards a pillar to destroy it. It can also be hit towards the pillar you want it to go to.
Watch out for the knockback effect of explosion that can kick you out of the platform (warned by orange circle). Timed-event, make sure to finish this before the platform is completely covered by the orange effect.
Standard Technique: Clockwise (pull/push the bloom towards the pillar on its right side).
Note: Arkk gains Diaphonous Shielding (1 stack per functional pillar) and Invulnerability.

2. Arkk opens his CC bar + Huge red ball above his head.
WHAT TO DO:  fast CC / use Hypernova near Arkk if the party lacks CC.

Deathly Consequences upon failed mechanics:

​1. Forced of the Nightmare – failed CC after the reactor phase, huge blast of damage that can cause party wipe.
​2. Supernova – failed Solar Bloom phase. When the platform is fully covered by a widening orange effect.

Fight Order: 

Notes:
> The following mechanics  listed below happens randomly throughout the fight. However, some of these also appear standard in some phases which are in the image.

  1. Temporal Anomaly + Skull + Green Circle (comes in batches. If Anomaly spawns without the skull then no need to kill)
  2. Target
  3. Red Ball on arrow point
  4. Curved Shot
  5. Eye 360
  6. Small Red and Black Circle
  7. Red Ball – bomb
  8. Arkk’s Stomp (Solar Stomp and Overhead Smash)

​(If the DPS is low, the listed mechanics above happen twice. If the DPS is enough or higher, some of these are skipped).

> Mechanics below are described as per visual appearances and appear standard in the whole fight phase.

ANote:
Nov 7 2017 patch: 
Anomaly + skull + green circle is now buggy. Aside from the “scheduled” re spawn time of those, the Anomalies respawn often with green circle. However, if the Skull does not appear above a player’s head (even though there is a screen message) no explosion is happening. Since the bomb explodes after 7sec of skull appearance, there willl be few time left to wait for the person who has a skull to target the anomaly (to give signal to others that it’s not fake so they can kill it).
To play it safe, here are alternatives: 
> all anomaly appearance are killed. Necro’s Epidemic can be used for faster Anomaly kill but it won’t be effective if there is not much conditions to transfer.
> 2 DPS and 1 warrior can be condi in order for Epidemic to work fast or just skip Epidemic and use Power DPS classes for faster kill both for Anomaly and Arkk. (bleed-based DPS won’t be maximized in general , too many wasted condi ticks per phase transition)

> DH can solo anomalies if burn skills (such as GS skill 2) are off cool down,
> Other Anomaly DPS while primary target is still on Arrk:
Warrior’s fire fields
DH’s symbol
Weaver’s lava font
