Brelshaza Gate 1 Legion Raid Guide


Introduction

Brelshaza Gate 1 focuses on your party's synergy. Especially, the proper distribution of classes with Weak Point and Stagger affix are very crucial. On top of that, make sure that each player in raid has a Skill slotted with the Counter Attack affix. This increases the chance of surviving the x45 HP Counter Attack Mechanic.

The recommended Combat Items include, but are not limited to:

Party 1

  • HP Potion of your choice
  • Panacea
  • Whirlwind Grenade
  • Destruction Bomb

Party 2

  • HP Potion of your choice
  • Panacea
  • Whirlwind Grenade for classes with low stagger damage, Frost Grenade or Flash Grenade
  • Sleep Bomb

Disclaimer: In this guide, we will only focus on the important core & general patterns of the boss. Basic attacks of Gate 3 which are easy to predict or deal low damage, won't be explained in detail.

This guide assumes that you are familiar with the recommended Raid Build for your class.
