Helgaia is the second Raid Level 3 Guardian and you need to be at least 840 Item Level to enter this Guardian Raid. This Guardian drops Tier 2 Accessories, Upgrade Materials and Ability Stones as well as rare drops including Runes, Engraving Books and Cards. It takes 10% more damage from Water Element skills and the recommended Combat Items are: HP Potion, Panacea, Whirlwind Grenade and Flare.
This Guardian has a unique evolve mechanic. The battle always starts with Helgaia being in its basic phase. In frequent intervals, the Guardian attempts to evolve into the next phase. This can be interrupted by using skills with Stagger affix. Once successfully evolved, Helgaia's attacks will be enhanced and new attacks become available.
Helgaia's attacks apply a Burn debuff on hit. This Debuff is stackable and lasts for 20 seconds. Each additional stack resets the timer. Make sure to cleanse the debuff once you have 4 or more stacks. This can be done with Panacea or by making use of the cleansing skills of Gunlancer, Paladin or Soulfist.

Special Interactions & Patterns
Counter attack is possible during the charge attack pattern. At the start of this attack animation, the Guardian glows blue. The player has a short window to cast a skill with a Counter Attack affix while standing in front of the Guardian. If you manage to pull this off fast enough, the Guardian's attack will be interrupted and staggered for a few seconds. This gives you and your team a short window to use buffs and deal additional damage.
