  3. Defeat The Maven without failing her Memory Game
  4. Defeat The Maven without being hit by her Coil Beams

This challenge is hard. Pretty similar to last league which is having to fight “league” end game boss with condition, pretty hard to do … Have to pay service for an experienced player to help you complete this challenge IF you are going for 40/40 challenges completion.

1. Defeat The Maven without allowing more than 16 Volatile Orbs to be active at once

Maven sometimes will shoot out volatile projectiles(13 per throw) throughout the fight and those projectiles will turn into volatile orbs when they land on the ground, circle around the arena. They will explode when you collide/touch them. To do these challenges is to have to avoid her throwing the volatile projectile TWICE, which means your character build needs to have high damage to make her quick change into the next phase before she is able to throw another volatile projectile.

If your build is not fast enough to damage her, try removing all the projectiles that circle around the arena by passing through them, let them explode then continue fighting her. Repeat this method until she goes into the next phase.

2. Defeat The Maven while there are at least 12 Gravity Wells active

Brain Boss PoE This Brain Boss will circle the arena during the fight, and it sometime shoot these projectiles(3 each time)
brain boss shoot out After the brain boss shoot out 3 projectiles, those projectile will become active(glowing) then chase towards your character.
projectiles collide/touch your character And when those projectiles collide/touch your character, it will explode then leave “galaxy ground” that deals cold degen damage, which very similar to shaper’s orb.
Defeat The Maven while there are at least 12 Gravity Wells active Here’s how it looks like in video form.

To do this challenge, you have let the brain boss shoot out it’s projectiles 4 times before the last phase of brain boss, which is the phase you fight maven for the last time before the coil beams, also the phase where the brain boss goes to the middle of the arena the 3rd time. The 1st and 2nd time of the brain boss coming to the centre will reset the arena, so only the 3rd time only counts.

3. Defeat The Maven without failing her Memory Game

Maven will sometimes do a Memory Game every few seconds(roughly 30 seconds) during the fight. She’ll start this Memory Game when she goes to the middle arena then splits the arena into 3, then starts glowing in a certain area. You have to remember the glowing area in sequence because as she does the glowing ground thing, she’ll start making an explosion-circle under her slowly expanding outward, so now you have to move around the zone according to the sequence she showed just now to stop the explosion-circle from getting bigger. The floor will flashes green color if you step on the correct area in sequence. If you fail her memory game, the explosion-circle will continue to expand till cover the whole arena then explode instant kill your character, although you can actually escape the explosion by logging out then rejoin the map and wait till the phase is finished then you can continue your fight.

Defeat The Maven without failing her Memory Game

To do this challenge, you have to succeed ALL of their memory games during the fight. You can lessen the “memory game” phase to appear by killing her fast enough. The Memory Game has 3 sequences for the first time, then the rest will have 6 sequences instead.

Also make sure don’t go through the middle of the arena when you’re doing the sequence because the explosion-circle actually can hurt “prematurely” you while she’s creating it, so try run the outer circle of the arena when doing the sequence and move as fast as possible to finish her puzzle before the circle touches you.

4. Defeat The Maven without being hit by her Coil Beams

During the last phase boss fight, the brain boss will shoot out 5 splitting coil beams rotating anti-clockwise around the arena. To do this challenge, all you have to do is just avoid that beam at all cost.
