Mechanical walkthrough

Around 144 health bar, Vykas will use it rotating lasers offensive. She launches this attack again around the HP 90 mark, and possibly at other random times. During this attack, Vykas aims a purple laser at each player. It will explode, but won’t kill you. If, however, you stand near another player and take a double hit, the Raid may be over for you. Players can move to the edge of the map while running at normal speed to maintain some distance between explosions.

At HP 120 bar, take model one positions (shown in the diagram above). The boss will randomly spawn three shadow clones at 3 a.m., 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. One has folded wings, another has outstretched wings, and the third has only one folded wing. The middle five players must each consume an orb, which will mark them with a red or purple sign. Whichever marking – red or purple – appears on the majority of players will determine the order in which they must visit shadow clones to avoid incoming shockwaves. Here is the correct order for each color:

  • Three purple symbols (purple majority): no wings up → one wing up → both wings up
  • Three red symbols (red majority): both wings up → one wing up → no wings up

When the boss is down to the HP 65 bar, it will summon all three shadow clones Again. Occupy the positions of model two (see diagram above). Each clone shadow will emit five shockwaves and your task is to memorize which ones are black and which ones are red. The shadow clones will then proceed to shoot orbs to the boss, and you have to intercept the blacks. If your position has two black orbs, each of the two party members must intercept one of them. If there are three, one of the “reserve” players must take the third. It’s best to choose a fast method of communication before starting the Legion Raid (e.g. call “7-4”, which means the fourth orb of the seven-hour clone must be intercepted).
