  • You can place down an Ox Statue in the middle of the room to help with picking up the rogues during the intermission.

Boss Notes:

  • Placing Transcendence can help you reposition back if you are hit by Black Wings when tanking the adds outside.
  • Placing a Black Ox Statue (Summon Black Ox Statue) where the add spawns will make sure it does not run into the boss by accident.

Essences:

Major: The Crucible of Flame

Minor: Nullification Dynamo, Conflict and Strife, Strength of the Warden / The Formless Void

Boss Notes:

  • Move the boss to any images that have spawned but watch out for the initial burst of damage.
  • Use Ring of Peace to protect the raid from Images of Absolution.
  • As both tanks are always a different colour and there is nothing to tank when the boss goes away we are prime candidates to call out or mark which Illusion to attack.

Boss Notes:

  • Place a transcendence in case you are knocked off the platform.
  • The Void Ritual portals spawn behind the boss. Make sure none of them will spawn inside a pillar to make life easier for the players going inside.

Essences:

Boss Notes:

  • Use Ring of Peace to knock Darters towards other units for cleave and to interrupt their casts.
  • When the bosses have to be split up, the range is not as big as some might expect and keeping them close will still allow some classes to cleave.
  • You can use Blessing of Protection to reset the Bleed debuff (Ravage) from the Ravager.

  • Make sure you hit tentacles to apply Mystic Touch.
  • You can stand outside the LoS cloud to apply Volatile Seed to Tentacles while still being visible for healers.

Essences:

Major: The Crucible of Flame

Minor: Nullification Dynamo, Conflict and Strife, Strength of the Warden / The Formless Void

Boss Notes:

  • The second hit of the Eye hits hard, having one of the on-use trinkets for the raid to cover this will help a lot to survive.
  • Use Ring of Peace to protect raid members from bloods hitting them. Try to knock them next to the boss so they can still be cleaved. Using it on the mind controls is also possible, but beware you don't knock them into other players.

Vexiona

Essences:

Major: The Crucible of Flame

Minor: Nullification Dynamo, Conflict and Strife, Strength of the Warden / The Formless Void

Boss Notes:

  • If you are picking up adds, dropping an ox statue on the portal and then AoE taunting after the full wave has spawned will help a lot with initial aggro.
  • Make sure you use externals and/or on-use trinkets if you are tanking the boss and have Despair.
  • Annihilation from the Void Ascendant hurts a lot, especially at the start of the fight when you are tanking an add wave. Be ready to use cooldowns early on.

Essences:

Major: The Crucible of Flame

Minor: Nullification Dynamo, Conflict and Strife, Strength of the Warden / The Formless Void

Boss Notes:

  • Drop an ox statue if you have to pickup a far add to avoid them hitting any targets in the way.
  • Use Zen Meditation for Decaying Strike. Don't mind the ground damage as it doesn't deal a lot of damage compared to dropping Zen Meditation and getting more damage from Decaying Strike.
  • If the Decaying Strike is a problem and is killing you, consider using Touch of the Everlasting as your Major Essence.

Boss Notes:

  • Use the Black ox Statue to pick up small adds in stage 1, and keep them away from the raid during Mindgrasp.
  • If the Basher Tentacles get their Void Lash cast off (low dps/early progression) this can hurt and you should have trinkets and/or externals for this.
  • In stage 2 use Transcendence to move more efficiently away and to the boss.
  • You can roll over Evoke Anguish pools if you roll as they spawn without taking damage.
  • Blessing of Protection can reset the Mindwrack stacks.

Essences

Major: Crucible of Flame.

Minor: Nullification Dynamo, Conflict and Strife.

Boss Notes

  • In Phase 1 keep an eye on the “Painful Memories” and “Longing” and act accordingly, try to stack the “Cursed Heart” in the same place to give you more room later in the fight.
  • In Phase 2 you want to swap after every second or third “Arcane Jolt” and line of sight the boss so you get rid of your “Arcane Vulnerability
  • In Phase 3 you want to do the same as in Phase 2, but here you also need to taunt the “Loyal Myrmidon”.
  • In Phase 4 you don't have to deal with the “Arcane Jolt / Arcane Vulnerability” anymore, instead you have “Void Touched” that reduces the amount of healing you get. Try to swap at around 3-4 stacks.
