Marker Placement

Start

1. Sonic Howl = AOE
2. Ruby Glow = AOE into 4 square reflect
3. Topaz Stone with Green puddle = Go to safe corner.
4. While in safe corner the party will need to avoid tanks and the tanks will need to avoid each other

5. Venomous Mass = Tank debuff, forced swap mechanic (this is an aoe on the MT) gives vuln up.
6. Toxic Crunch = Tank buster right after Venomous Mass
7. Green puddle = need 2 players per puddle to soak. 2 inside and 2 outside.

8. Venomous Mass = Tank debuff, forced swap mechanic (this is an aoe on the MT) gives vuln up.
9. Toxic Crunch = Tank buster right after Venomous Mass
10. Ruby Glow = AOE into half arena reflect

Double Rush

11. Double Rush = Rushes from half arena to 1 corner then back to the other corner, second half has a knockback. Stand behind the boss in the half with Topaz Crystal, once he charges walk through to the safe half and use knockback prevention and mitigation, charge does big AOE damage.

Note: Boss can start Double Rush into Topaz side first.
Note: You can stand in front of the boss on the second dash but it does increased damage.

12. Sonic Howl = AOE
13. Ruby Glow = AOE into 4 square reflect

14. Topaz Stone = Boss will spawn 2 crystals then 2 crystals then 3 then 3 again. Safe zones will be the areas the crystals didn’t spawn in, in that order. First 2 sets will have 2 safe squares, last 2 sets will have 1 safe square.

Note: All you need to do is find the first safe zone and third safe zone. The second and fourth will always be adjacent to them.

Venomous

15. Venomous Mass = Tank debuff, forced swap mechanic (this is an aoe on the MT) gives vuln up.
16. Toxic Crunch = Tank buster right after Venomous Mass
17. Venom Surge = Light party stacks into baited aoes in center then spread into clock positions for spread aoes.

OR
18. Venom Squall = Clock position spread aoe into bated aoe into center into light party stacks.

19. Claw to Tail or Tail to Claw = Boss will cleave one side of the arena then the reverse. Walk through the boss once the respective cleave is finished to avoid the follow up.

Tail = One rear cleave
Claw = 6 Front cleaves followed by a 7th charged front cleave.

Devour

20. Satiated AkA Teeth Mario Kart = Boss creates 8 ground markers and a teeth marker. Same as normal, dodge last to first.

Pattern 1

PATTERN 1: Teeth will start in 1 corner, go clockwise 3 spaces then go counter clockwise 4 spaces.

The group would start at 3 then move to 4 then move to 3 and end on 2 as the boss is jumping in the teeth order.

Pattern 2

PATTERN 2: Teeth will start in 1 corner, go clockwise 1 space then go counter clockwise 4 spaces then go clockwise 2 spaces.

The group would start at 2 then move to 1  and end on 4 as the boss is jumping in the teeth order.

21. 4x Green puddles = 4 puddles will spawn, 1 in each cardinal direction. All but 1 of the puddles is supposed to fail / not be soaked to spawn a green slime the boss needs to eat.

Using clock positions will assist in a smooth transition.
Both tanks will stack on either North OR South puddles.
East and West puddles will be soaked by the 3 players on their respective sides.

Post Devour Phase

22. Sonic Howl = AOE
23. Ruby Glow = AOE with half room reflect and 5 Topaz. 3 on one side and 2 on the other side.

24. Venom Pool = Will drop green slime on light party groups. These AOEs turn the Topaz crystals into green puddles. Find which half of the room has 2 Topaz crystals and stack light parties on each one to turn them green.

25. Searing Ray = AOE reflected back at the boss like in normal, stand in the safe half of the arena.

OR

We still need your help!

Thanks to your support, SaltedXIV raised nearly $2,000 for RAINN in support of sexual assault awareness.

But this fight isn’t over. As long communities keep actively silencing victims and assault discussions, this fight will keep going. This site and this community still need your help. Any contributions are helpful, no matter how small. 

I also want to encourage reading and discussion of these experiences. There are leaders and pillars of this community actively silencing or proliferating anyone speaking out. Please don’t stand for this. Please don’t support communities that silence victims, that not only rip off designs, but have mentors who sabotaged this site and faced no reproach.

We can be better than this.
