Raid Mechanics

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

Disease Meter

The Disease Meter below the player fills up upon getting hit by Akkan's patterns or during specific mechanics. Every time it fills up to maximum, it fears the player and adds a permanent debuff. This debuff can stack up to 5 times. Each stack adds another harmful effect.

Stack effects:

  1. Permanent low Poison damage based on player's max HP.
  2. Increases the poison damage.
  3. A poison aura appears around the player, which fills up the Disease Meter of nearby players.
  4. A poison aura appears around the player, which fills up the Disease Meter of nearby players.
  5. Player gets charmed and attacks other players. After a short duration, the player explodes and kills nearby players.


  1. To liberate feared players, use cleanse skills or Sacred Charm/Sacred Bomb.
    A well-timed Awakening or dodge can negate the fear effect.
  2. If you get the third or fourth stack, don't stand too close to other players.
  3. In order to survive the exploding of the fifth stack, either utilize a Time Stop Potion or move away from the affected player.
Empty Meter

Main Mechanics

Main mechanics occur at certain HP intervals.

x200 X Stagger
x165 Line Delivery & Stagger
x140 Star or Hexagon
x139-31 Random Party Gimmicks
x30 Arena break / x0 Destruction

Players - Intercept orange lasers, stagger Akkan


  1. Occurs at or near x200 bars.
  2. Akkan teleports to the center and summons a poison aura around him.
  3. Four towers spawn that shoot an orange laser at Akkan forming an X shape.
  4. A stagger bar appears below the boss.


  1. Players should spread out in x3+1 positions.
  2. Stand in front of the laser to break the link between the tower and Akkan.
  3. If all four links are severed, Akkan can be inflicted with stagger damage.
  4. The stagger bar will not decrease if even one of the links is active.
  5. The player who is severing the link will gain a slowly stacking debuff that increases the damage they take from the laser.
  6. If the damage you receive becomes too large, swap with your teammate to remove your debuff stacks.
  7. Dangerous attacks marked with red telegraphs will periodically spawn and try to interrupt the process.
  8. Anyone hit by them will instantly die, so it is important to avoid them first and then proceed with the stagger.
  9. Hard Mode only: Additional large scythe paths are created, that spawn with a delay of a few seconds.

Hard Mode Extra Phase

x300 Extra Phase Begins
x235 / x135 Akkan Smash
x200 Water Park
Random Patterns


  1. After a short cutscene, players are teleported to a squared arena with a Giant Akkan at the end of it.

General extra phase information

  1. Players can be pushed off all ledges, they fall in the water if they do and have to perform a minigame just like in Akkan Gate 1. However, getting pushed off the front where Akkan is located will result in an instant death.
  2. Akkan has a hidden stagger bar, successfully staggering him results in a destruction check that provides a damage boost for all players. 50% for 1st and 2nd destruction and 100% damage increase for the 3rd.
  3. Safe spots for the majority of the fight are on the side where his hand is touching the ground, or the corner that he is holding with his arm when switching the sides of the arena.
  4. Just like in the first part of Gate 3, dead players will occasionally be resurrected and fight against you.
  5. Back attack is the backside of his hand, front attack is in the front of it.
