Boss Fight: Garuda

alt me Main Fight Mechanics

  • Kill Razor Plumes ASAP when rock pedestals are up in phase 1(rocks will protect you in transition to phase 2), not as urgent to kill in phase 2 but still need to take them out if Garuda isn't close to dying

  • Stay out of purple wind in phase 2.
  • Dodge Slipstream (frontal AE cone) and Shrieks in phase 2.
  • Tanks

  • Tank against north wall in Phase 1. Point her away from center in Phase 2.
  • Dodge Slipstream (generally does two big "swipe attacks" with green effects right before)
  • WAR: Can help with Razor Plumes when they spawn using Overpower or Steel Cyclone
  • Healers

  • When The Reckoning comes everyone will be hit for damage, be ready for a group heal right after
  • Help DOT Razor Plumes
  • Important to dodge Slipstream in phase 2
