Uber Elder without being hit by Celestial Spheres or Tentacle Lash

Celestial Spheres are the golden balls that the Shaper Boss consecutively shoots out 3 of them to players, while the Tentacle Lash is the one of the Elder Boss skill where when it’s life drop to 25% (Phase8) it will move up to the air and then summon 5 sets of tentacles around the player that slam the ground to deal AOE physical damage. Highly advised not to do this one because of the annoying celestial spheres had to dodge at all times during the whole fights.

Abilities of Uber Elder

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

  • 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 from both bosses, 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 Super siphon (including the debuff Crystalised Fear) skill and the Shaper will not use his Shadow Clone or Bullet Hell attack.

Moves in italics are not used while they are in their invulnerable phase.

The Elder

  • Default attack: A melee attack. Uses it while you are in melee range.
  • Ice Spears: Launches ice spears in various ways, dealing cold damage. He can fire multiple icicles in a large arc or several in a smaller arc.
  • Ring of Death: Casts a ring around him, creating a field that gradually grows larger over time. After several seconds, it explodes for massive physical damage, enough to kill most builds. You must stay inside the ring to avoid taking damage.
  • Siphon – Dives into the ground and reappears, channeling an arc that deals physical damage over time and greatly slows the character down in front of him. Any damage he deals with this attack is given to him as energy shield.
  • Tentacle Whip: Spawns several tentacles that slam the ground to deal area of effect physical damage.
  • Rising Slam: The Elder spins around, launching multiple cold damage projectiles that impact in a ring around him, then teleports away. He will then teleport to your location and do a slam that deals heavy cold damage.

The Shaper

  • Melee Attack: A lash that does melee damage. He only uses it while in melee range.
  • Golden Projectiles: The Shaper fires three golden orbs that deal massive cold damage and penetrate 25% cold resistance, one after another.
  • Shaper Beam: The Shaper channels a huge golden beam that deals fire, cold and lightning damage over time. The beam only targets one location per skill usage.
  • Teleport Slam: The Shaper spins and disappears in a blanket of void, and then teleports to the player’s location, followed by a powerful slam with a large area of effect. A movement skill is recommended to avoid taking damage from this move.
