Incubation Effect: Elder Map Item

The Elder is a boss that is invading the Atlas of Worlds. He is the main antagonist of the War for the Atlas expansion. The Elder randomly spawns and fights the Shaper via influencing. The Elder will spawn on the player’s Atlas once at least 20 maps are influenced.

Note: Completing 20 maps while the Elder and its guardians are on the player’s Atlas without actually defeating any of them gives them a chance to disappear and remove the Elder-influence from the maps they were on.

Uber Elder

Tier 17 Elder (also known as Uber Elder) can be fought by progressing through the Epilogue quests by collecting all 15 Memory Fragments then defeating Elder Guardians and the Shaper. Afterwards, when a Tier 15 map is Elder-influenced, it will cause all Tier 16 maps to become Shaper-influenced. Clear all four guardian maps, beginning with the map adjacent to the Elder influenced map and continue with one of the other two guardian maps, that are adjacent to the first map, and the Elder will occupy The Shaper’s Realm. Then as usual, you need to take out all 4 of the Elder’s Guardians to summon Uber Elder.

The Elder is assisted by the Shaper in this battle. The battle essentially pits the player against both bosses, with some divergences:

  • One of the bosses will be invulnerable, alternating between the two for every 25% health lost. The invulnerable boss will use less attacks than normal. When both bosses are at 25% health, both bosses will be vulnerable.
  • Volatile Anomalies and Madness Propagators will continuously spawn during the fight, alternating every 20 seconds.
  • There are no special phases from either boss.
  • At each 1/4 health lost, the Elder or Shaper will spawn adds. The Elder will summon multiple Null Portals and the Shaper channels a portal like in his regular fight. Both are invulnerable during this phase.
  • The Elder will not use his Petrifying Arc Arc attack and the Shaper will not use his Shadow Clone or Bullet Hell attack.
