General Battle Mechanics
The boss has 2 phases and an enrage phase. When you first encounter the boss, it will be in his 1st Phase.
When the boss TP's away, it will start at his 2nd Phase.
The 2nd phase is signaled by an AoE rain. There are 2 situations where this can occur.
The 1st situation is after the 1st knockdown. After getting back up, it will do it's AoE attack.
If you don't knock the boss, the boss will automatically use the AoE rain after ~3-4 minutes.
This starts the 2nd phase.
During the 2nd phase, the boss will periodically call down 4-5 dark orbs that move toward the boss.
The orbs can be staggered and the boss will not absorb them when the orbs are being engaged.
You will also know when it's enraged when its eyes glow blue and leave an afterimage when moving.
The boss will still call down orbs, but these orbs are grayish in color and don't move to the boss.
Once enraged, you have to knock the boss to make it go back to its 2nd phase.
This is shown below. Once the boss gets back up from its knockdown, the stationary orbs disappear.
The soulmaster ult is not the one clearing the orbs.
Moveset (1st Phase)
The tail swipe can be confusing for newer players.
The tail swipe telegraph is easy to notice. The boss will look back at the side it wants to swing its tail to.
The tail will be brought down in the middle. The boss will move diagonally to the other side.
Then the boss will tail swipe the side it was originally looking at.
Easiest way for melee to dodge all future swipe attacks is to stand diagonally to the boss's back.
This way, you dodge the initial tail swipe slam down the middle.
Then you move towards the middle where the tail landed to dodge the swipe.
Double Pound into Single
Moveset (2nd Phase - Inherits 1st Phase Moves)
The backstep during the 2nd Phase spawns whirlwinds that move forward.
2 whirlwinds spawn in front before the whirlwinds on the side.
You can dodge the whirlwinds as shown below if you're in front when this happens.
Flies slowly up into the air before using its rain attack.
Safe spot is in the middle. Before it lands, make sure to dash out of the safe area before it lands.
