Known as world boss 1 by many players.
To score a high score here, you will need a team that can deal with 3 of this boss’s attack and be able to bring his CC bar down to then deal the real dmg. You will only need 1-2 DPS for this boss and have the rest of your team focus on CC, buffing or shielding/healing through boss attacks.
First off, the boss’s normal attack will mini stun your heroes, so don’t channel attacks right before the fist comes down
The boss has 2 major attacks that has to be dealt with:
- Earth Blow - Watch for when the boss raises both fists. Make sure to Frey shield before the fist slams down. This will wipe your team at later timer. So make sure to shield, you don't want the stun anyways, which will cut your dps.
- Ray of Annihilation When the boss pulls back and charges a ball with both hands, you need to shield with Frey’s shield or utilize some dmg reduction skill (Kau’s healing rain T3 for example). Make sure to time it for the full duration of the blast. If you run my team, you Kau T3 heal through the ray and Gau sk 2 to wake people up
- Another way to deal with both attacks is to stun the boss by emptying his CC bar. Practice with your team and you will understanding the timing for this.
Bringing down the CC bar:
Given the boss will take amplified dmg when he is down after being stunned, bringing down the CC bar is important.
In normal mode, just use some low cd and physical cc whenever it is up. Try to stagger them so that it doesn't give time for the boss to recover CC bar.
When the boss goes into defense mode (he raises rocks up and smashes his fists together), he will be more vulnerable to CC through mdmg. You essentially have 15s to bring him down, otherwise, his Avalanche stacks will very likely wipe your team. At this point, throw all your CCs and mdmg skills (save the major dps ones for when he is down).
From time to time boulders will fall and stun your heroes, but this can mostly be ignored as you can’t prevent this and this is mostly random. **Don’t confuse this with the defence mode avalanche**.
Lastly when the boss’s CC bar is emptied, the core will be exposed for a few seconds, and this is when you unload your DPS on the boss. This is also when you unleash the remaining buffs to really boost dmg.
