Echidna Gate 2 Guide

Last Updated: July 4th 2024

Share on Social

The second gate of Echidna is slightly more complex than the previous gate. It is not because of its patterns, but because of the constant risk that your teammates will become charmed by Echidna's beauty and turn against you.

Raid Mechanics

Raid mechanics cover the passive mechanics that are persistent through the entire raid.

Charm Stacks
Charm Tiles
Charm Meter
Basement Meter

Charm

Certain mechanics and patterns apply on hit a charm debuff stack to players, which lasts for a minute and is displayed above their head.

Upon reaching 3 stacks, the player gets charmed, gets into PvP mode and starts to attack teammates.

Use Sleep Bomb on the player to lift the charm.

The entire Battlefield consists of multiple hexagon shaped tiles. They can be either in clean or corrupted state. Some patterns and interactions can change the state of each tile from clean to corrupted or vice versa.

Clean

Corrupted

Corrupted tiles get activated during certain patterns and will start to glow red.
Touching those tiles will increase your charm stacks.

If a tile fully gets surrounded by other corrupted tiles, a gigantic flower will bloom on it. Once this happens, the affected and the surrounding tiles will give charm stacks to players stepping on it.

The Charm Meter displayed on the top left of your screen fills up over time. Additionally, every time a player get charmed, it gets a slight progress boost.

Once the Charm Meter reaches certain thresholds, the following forced patterns will occur.

Tile Flip
Cleansing Mirror

Telegraph

  1. This pattern occurs once the Charm Meter fills up to 25% or 75%.
  2. Two players will be marked with a crosshair above their head and will be shortly after traced by a big line attack.
  3. Two other players get a ring below their feet, which slowly fills up. Once full, the tile the player stands on will be corrupted.

Description

  1. Don't step on the red glowing corrupted tiles to avoid getting charmed.
  2. The two players marked with the crosshair should point the AoE away from their teammates, wait until it locks to dodge the attack. Dodging too late can be fatal.
  3. At any given time, there are two randomly selected blue highlighted tiles at the edge of the battlefield. Everyone needs to be aware of the position of those two tiles for this pattern.
  4. The 2 players, marked with the ring below their feet, need to stand on 2 separate tiles before the ring fills up. The tiles they stand on need to fulfill the following criteria:
    1. It needs to be a clean tile.
    2. It is either a tile which is on the connecting path between the 2 blue highlighted tiles, or one next to those. It can be a blue highlighted tile too, as long as it is clean.
    3. Avoid overlapping it on a corrupted tile, since it will force a small flower to bloom on it. The affected tile applies charm stack upon contact.

Telegraph

  1. This pattern occurs once the Charm Meter fills up to 50% or 100%.
  2. Camera zooms out, and you view the battefield through a mirror.
  3. The Boss teleports to one of the blue highlighted tiles. A mirror spawns on the other blue highlighted tile.
  4. Each player gets a big pink circle around them.
  5. After a short delay, all players will be imprisoned. The mirror shoots a laser, which bounces from player to player.

Description

  1. The goal is to create a path from the mirror to the boss and force the laser to hit the boss.
  2. If done correctly, it will not only prevent a wipe, but also turn all corrupted tiles the laser passed through into clean ones. So the ideal path the palyer creates consist of as many corrupted tiles as possible (Max 8).
  3. The following criteria should be paid attention to, to avoid wipe or mistakes:
    1. Avoid forcing the laser through a clean tile, since it flips it into a corrupted one.
    2. The laser can only bounce to players standing on a neighbouring tile.
    3. You don't have to stand on the boss' or mirror's blue tile to connect them. But make sure that the mirror's laser hits the first player.
    4. If a player stands in the pink circle of a another player when the imprisonment happens, that player will get charmed immediately.
    5. Player should avoid standing on the same tile. In hard mode, a flower blooms on the tile occupied by more than 1 player as soon as the imprisonment happens.
  4. After successfully completing this mechanic, 2 other tiles at the edge of the battlefield will be randomly selected as blue highlighted tiles. Supports should scout for these and call out their positions for future tile flips.

After resolving the x137 HP Huge Echidna Mechanic, you will be teleported to the basement, which leads to the following changes:

  • Max Ally Skill Segments are increased by 1. (5⇾6)
  • The battlefield gets surrounded by walls. If Echidna's abilities hit and force players to collide with the walls, the Charm Meter gets a progress boost.
Big Snakes
Small Snakes

Telegraph

  1. This pattern occurs once the Charm Meter fills up to 50%.
  2. The boss opens her arms and looks towards the sky, while being surrounded by a pink aura.
  3. Multiple red telegraphs expand from the walls, followed by huge snakes after a short delay.

Description

  1. Common Method: Raid lead uses Ally Skill: Ephernia as soon as Echidna opens her arms to burn all walls and skip the rest of this mechanic.
  2. Uncommon Method
    1. Locate and group up at the closest wall, which displays a red outline upon hover.
    2. Supports use Flame Grenade on that wall to delay its red telegraph.
    3. Wait for the other wall's snakes to pass through. Afterward, move away from the burning wall's telegraph.

Telegraph

  1. This pattern occurs once the Charm Meter fills up to 100%.
  2. Boss disappears into the ground and summons multiple clones performing a cone-shaped attack.
  3. Echidna reappears in the center and gets stationary. She occasionally targets a random player marked by a crosshair with a cone attack.
  4. Small snakes spawn at the edge of the battle and move towards the boss.
  5. Towards the end of the pattern, clone's of Echidna spawn and attempt to stun players in front of them.

Description

  1. Dodge the clone's attack. And move to x3 and x3+1 positions.
  2. From the moment Echidna reappears in the center, you should avoid looking directly at her until this pattern is over. Otherwise, you will obtain charm stacks.
  3. If you get targeted by Echidna's cone attacks, try to move away from that area as soon as it locks and an expanding blue telegraph appears. This attack charms the player on hit.
  4. Prevent the snakes from reaching the boss to avoid a raid wipe.
    • Normal snakes die after they got hit a certain amount of time. Flame Grenade are effective against this type of snakes.
    • Shielded snakes die as soon as they get CCed by a skill or by Sleep Bomb. (Hard Mode only)
  5. Dodge the clone's attacks by moving away from their front.

Main Mechanics

Main mechanics occur at certain HP intervals.

x210 HP - Mirror Counter
x137 HP - Huge...Echidna
x120 HP - Basement Clash
x50 Mirror Stagger
x0 Final Struggle

Telegraph

  1. A cutscene happens.
  2. Eight waves of seven mirrors in a line slowly approach the players, while leaving a trail of pink puddles behind.
  3. Occasionally, the mirrors to the sides of the players shoot a laser indicated by a red telegraph, which stuns on hit.

Description

  • The goal is to survive the 8 waves by countering the mirror with echidna's portrait, which looks at a different direction than the other 6 mirrors, while dodging the red lasers. The red lasers appear only in Hard Mode.
  • Countering the wrong mirror imprisons the player. Don't prioritize imprisoned players. Instead, keep focusing on countering the correct mirrors.
  • The damaging pink puddle trails left behind by a line disappear as soon you counter the correct mirror.
  • After successfully resolving this mechanic, the boss gets staggered. Focus on dealing damage and use Ally Skill: Azena.

Telegraph

  1. After a short cutscene, players are teleported to a different area.
  2. A gigantic Echidna appears at the top side of the area.
  3. Three waves of mirrors appear on each side, which shoots lasers. The laser stuns the player on hit.
  4. Echidna shoots 3 times a laser to a side, with shorts intervals between each shot.
  5. The boss raises her right hand and requests a 3-man coop counter.
  6. After a while, Echidna blows a kiss, sends out flying hearts and initiates a clash opportunity.
  7. During the clash, she also blows air, which deals damage on hit.

Description

  1. To resolve this pattern, you need to deplete the hidden stagger bar of Echidna.
  2. In Normal Mode, the laser between the mirrors turns off for a few seconds, so that you can pass through.
    • In Hard Mode, you have to spacebar through the laser of the 2nd Mirror.
  3. Dodge the lasers shot by Echidna to avoid getting a charm stack.
  4. Succeed the 3-man coop counter (2 in Normal Mode), which gives those players a stagger buff. Upon success, Echidna will collapse and give a short window of opportunity to deal damage & stagger.
    • In Hard Mode, she might do a fake coop counter first.
  5. As soon as she blows a kiss, group up and move to 6 O'clock (back side of the battlefield). Avoid getting hit by the flying hearts, which pull you towards the boss on hit. Hearts appear only in Hard Mode.
  6. A player should take the clash, which appears a few steps towards the boss from 6 O'clock position. Getting perfect on clash fills up 2 Ally Skill Segments once it is over.
    • Efficient Method: Ideally, you should use Ally Skill: Thar 2-3 seconds after the golden flash on the clash player appears. If you use the Ally Skill too early, it will interrupt the clash and prevent you from getting the 2 Ally Skill Segments. Using it too late might lead to consumption of the Segments after they got filled by the clash.
    • Easier Method: If you are unsure about the timing, you can use Ally Skill: Thar after the 3-man coop counter. In that case, you have to avoid staggering the boss until you are done with the clash pattern.

Telegraph

  1. Occurs at x120, x100 and x80 HP.
  2. Echidna floats back, disappears and reappears close to the wall at 11 O'clock.
  3. A blue clash circle appears on her left side, followed by a white snake lunging towards that spot.
  4. After a brief delay, another blue clash circle appears right to the boss, followed by a black snake lunging towards that spot.

Description

  • The goal of this pattern is to prevent the stage destruction and killing both snakes before or at the end of the last basement clash at x80 HP. Killing both snakes gives a permanent 30% Damage Increase buff.
    • As preparation for this mechanic, you need to assign 3 players, who will take the clashes.
  • Common Method
    • The raid lead moves close to the first blue clash circle and uses Ally Skill: Thar. In that case, Thar performs the clash and will deal 61 bars of damage to the white snake at the end. The player's goal is to bring down the HP of the white snake to 61 bars, before switching target to the black snake. Use Atropine Potion.
    • Meanwhile, the first predesignated clash player, should keep an eye on the 2nd blue clash circle and take the clash as soon as it appears.
    • At x100, the 2nd clash occurs. Since Thar killed the white snake during the 1st clash, only the black snake will spawn and request a clash. The 2nd predesignated player should take the clash, while the rest deals as much damage as possible while making use of Atropine Potion.
    • At x80 HP, the 3rd predesignated player takes the clash, and the rest should be able to kill the snake, which gives the permanent 30% Damage Increase buff.
  • Uncommon Method (If you lack damage to kill snakes by using the common method)
    • The main difference between this and the common approach is, that you will take the white snake's HP only down to x79 during the first set of clashes.
    • On the 2nd set of clash, both clashes need to be taken by a player. While both clashes are ongoing, the raid lead needs to line up with both snakes and use Ally Skill: Azena. This should be enough to kill both snakes and obtain the permanent 30% Damage Increase buff.
    • The usage of the 2nd Ally Skill will most likely force the raid to use the uncommon method during the Basement -> Big Snakes pattern.

Telegraph

  • Echidna disappears and summons a big mirror in the center, surrounded by small mirrors at x3 and x3+1 positions.
  • Normal Mode (A stagger bar appears below the big mirror and will keep repeating the steps below.)
    1. The big mirror turns slowly, either clockwise or counterclockwise, and performs an attack which imprisons players looking at it on hit.
    2. Shortly after, the small mirrors at it's back will use the same attack and imprison player's looking at those.
  • Hard Mode
    1. A random small mirror glows red.
    2. The big mirror displays a moving portrait of echidna 5 times in quick succession.
    3. Pairs of small mirrors rotate at the same time.
    4. Stagger bar appears below the small mirrors.

Description

  1. Normal Mode
    • Simply follow the back of the big mirror while looking at it, and keep attacking it until you deplete the stagger bar.
  2. Hard Mode
    1. The goal here is to stagger the correct small mirror. To locate the correct one, memorize which one glows red at the start of this mechanic.
    2. Memorize the direction sequence of Echidna's portrait moment displayed in the big mirror. Since this tells you in which direction you need to move from the red glowing mirror's pov to identify the correct small mirror.
      • Portrait moved towards right ⇾ Clockwise (CW)
      • Portrait moved towards left ⇾ Counterclockwise (CCW)
    3. You can also use the "+1-1 method", since there are only 4 possible outcomes. By counting the sum of each variant (left or right) and identifying the one, which is higher. That tells you how many spots and in which direction it moved from its initial position (red glowing mirror).
      1. 3 right ⇾ 1 CW
      2. 3 left ⇾ 1 CCW
      3. 4 right ⇾ 3 CW
      4. 4 left ⇾ 3 CCW
    4. Once you have followed the sequence correctly, you also need to pay attention to mirrors, which rotate as pairs. If the correct mirror is part of a rotating pair, then those 2 swap positions.
    5. Stagger the correct small mirror.

Example Footage Sequence:
Start (Red Glow) at 3 O'clock | CW → CW → CCW → CW → CW | 7 & 11 O'clock swapped | Stagger 11 O'clock

Hard Mode only

  6. Shortly after, she will turn towards the first snake tail and request a real or fake counter. She repeats this 2 additional times.
  7. Echidna repeats the pattern sequence starting from the 3rd step once more.

Description

  1. Dodge the 2 initial patterns.
  2. At least 1 player needs to get grabbed to check the tail glow sequence. That player needs to type in the chat the glow order and the clock position.
  3. None grabbed players, should try to super armor through the explosion and use a Sleep Bomb on the charmed (previously grabbed) player.
  4. Go to the called out positions and prepare to counter in sequence. But be aware of the fake counters! There are only 2 possible counter sequences.
    • RealFakeReal
    • FakeRealReal
  5. After successfully completing the counter sequence, the team gets a Damage Buff. The raid leader should use Ally Skill: Azena on Echidna.
  6. Repeat the actions starting from the Step 2. But this time other players need to get grabbed. Getting grabbed more than once leads to death.

Telegraph

  1. Echidna uses a gust of wind to pull players towards her.
  2. A random player is marked with a golden crosshair.
    • Shortly after, a homing butterfly spawns and chases after that player. It explods on contact or after a cerain durartion and stuns everyone in a big radius.
  3. Hard Mode only: A different player gets connected to the boss with a tether and is surrounded by a puddle, which applies stacks to nearby players.

Description

  1. Stay away from the verticle center part of the battlefield to avoid the pull.
  2. Pay attention and avoid triggering the butterfly on spawn, like it is the case in the footage below.
  3. The targeted player should guide the butterfly away from the rest, towards the backside of the battlefield.
