Once you have read through the detailed description of the main patterns, use the “cheat sheet” during the raid, or check out our condensed Cheat Sheet Collection for all Legion Raids on one page.




  • Generally used as first sidereal for the extra stagger and damage he provides.


  • Ideally used if the boss is affected by Armor Stacks so they can be depleted quicker.


  • Used for the x100 HP mechanic if a crater was not targeted by x2 Red Spikes.
  • Used to activate Frenzy & Endorphin mode.

Raid Mechanics

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

Cleansed Organism
Frenzy & Endorphin
Armor Stacks


Blood Orb

Organ Stacks

  • Upon Staggering or Countering the boss, it will spit out Organs onto the ground.
  • These can be destroyed, spawning a Blood Orb in its place that can be collected, giving you an Organ Stack (max 10).
  • If the Organs aren't killed or the Blood Orbs aren't picked up, they will return to the boss slowly.
  • Letting this happen gives the boss 20% damage reduction for 10 seconds.
  • Support players should collect at least 1 Organ Stack, while DPS players as many as possible.

Cleansed Organism

Each stack provides:

  • +10% damage
  • +4% stagger
  • max 10 stacks

Additionally, you gain: +1 Weak Point and +10% damage versus staggered foes.

  • Organ stacks you've accumulated can be utilized during the fight and the Eye Safe Zone (x38 HP) mechanic.
  • If everyone has at least 1 Organ stack and is under the effect of Sidereal: Balthor, stacks get transformed into a 30-second damage buff (Cleansed Organism) and the boss enters Frenzy & Endorphin state.


Red Moon

  • When your HP drops too low (around 25%), Ghost creatures will appear and follow you (only visible to you).
  • You must kill them or escape their radius indicator and detach the link between them before the Red Moon above your head fills up.
  • If you fail to do so, your character will get mind controlled.
  • Mind controlled players cannot be cleansed.


Excessive Bleeding

  • Getting hit by most of the boss attacks will inflict an uncleansable Bleed debuff to you for 30 seconds (max 10 stacks).
  • When reaching 10 stacks, your character will become stunned for 10 seconds, Excessive Bleeding.
  • This will cause the boss to perform a special attack aimed at this player.
  • She will do a series of alternating AoE attacks, during which you can stagger the boss.
  • Be mindful that all attacks inflict Bleed during this, so it's easy to reach 10 stacks yourself.
  • You can choose to ignore the stagger, as she will perform a counter-attack right after it.
    • She will spin clockwise 180° for the counter-attack.
  • Successfully staggering or countering her will end this special attack.
    • If failed, she will do it again.


Eye Gauge

  • In the second phase of the fight, you will see Eyes spread out on the floor.
  • These move towards the nearest players.
  • You can walk over them, this will detonate the area beneath shortly after.
  • Your character will be brought to 1 HP if caught within this explosion.
  • If you remain next to an eye for too long, you will begin to build up Gauge below your feet.
  • At 100% Gauge, your character will get rooted, and the Eye will accelerate towards you.


The Boss Movement and Attack speed is increased by 250%.


Players receive Status, Push & Bleed Immunity and have increased Movement Speed.

  • If everyone has at least 1 Organ stack and is under the effect of Sidereal: Balthorr effect, then Frenzy & Endorphin is triggered.
  • The boss converts x15 HP into a shield, which must be broken within 25 seconds (Frenzy).
  • Utilize Dark Grenade and Atropine Potion as a DPS or Stimulant as a SUP to provide maximum buffs.
  • Players get an insanely large shield during this mechanic that can ignore all attacks.
  • Endorphin - While this buff is active, players hit by the boss receive debuff stacks.
  • If her shield is destroyed, the buffs/debuffs get removed and the mechanic ends.
  • If not destroyed in time, the debuffs stacks accumulated during Endorphin slowly decay and deal massive amounts of damage that is impossible to survive.
Armor Stacks
  • Whenever the boss gets naturally staggered, she gains 3 shield stacks.
  • You're able to remove them by inflicting Weak Point damage.
  • Sidereal: Thirain removes roughly 1.5 shields by himself.
  • Her natural stagger bar disappears while she has these active.


  • Successful counterattacks or completed natural staggers grants a stack of Weaken to the boss.
  • Stacks infinitely and with each stack her knockdown duration increases.

Main Mechanics

Main mechanics occur at certain HP intervals.

x145 Tentacle Destruction
x144-100 Three Craters
x100 or 2 Crater Stacks Destroy & Grab
x55 Tentacle Destruction 2
x38 Eye Safe Zone
x35 (Hard Mode) Eye Black Hole


  1. Occurs at or near x145 bars.
  2. The Boss teleports to the center of the arena and spawns blue telegraphed lines in all directions.
  3. A stagger bar appears below her feet.


Players spread out to these positions:
Party1: x3
Party2: x3+1

  1. Run to the outside of the map while avoiding the blue telegraphs.
  2. Getting hit by the attack will stun you.
  3. The Boss gains 36 stacks (tentacle connections)
  4. Throw Destruction Bombs or use long range skills on the tentacles to eliminate the connections.
  5. When the connection is severed, yellow telegraphs will spawn and pull anyone caught within them to the boss, making them unable to move, avoid them!
  6. The remaining stack amount decides the difficulty of the stagger required to break her.
  7. Run to the boss and stagger it quickly.
  8. When successful, she will bombard the arena with falling rocks for a few seconds, simply avoid them.
  9. Getting hit will stun your character.


  1. Occurs after Tentacle Destruction.
  2. Three crater locations are spawned on the arena.


  • Successfully countering or staggering the boss will mark one player with a Red Spike shape.
  • This player needs to stand in one of the three craters in the ground and bait the boss attack onto him.
  • The chosen crater gets 1 stack towards the mechanic and needs to be targeted a second time the same way whenever possible.
  • Doing so will initiate the Destroy & Grab Main Mechanic, even if the boss HP hasn't reached 100 lines.
  • If you fail to stack 2 explosions into the same crater or your group's damage is too high to have the opportunity to do so, you must use Sidereal: Balthor for the x100 HP mechanic to not wipe.


  1. Occurs at x100 bars or when 2 Crater Stacks have been reached.
  2. The Boss teleports to the center of the arena, exploding the 3 craters locations on the ground.


Hidden Balthorr Method

  • Utilize this method if you failed to stack the same crater twice, or you pushed the boss to x100 too quickly.
  • After the crater areas have exploded, a text pop-up of Wei appears, the raid leader should use Sideral: Balthorr here.
  • This will cause the mechanic to proceed normally, check the Regular Method for more info.
  • If your Sidereal gauge is not ready, this will result in a wipe, make sure not to push x100 before that.

Regular Method

  • Group up in pairs between party 1&2 and run to the outer edge of the arena at x3+1 positions.
    • Can also be treated as "free for all" 2 nearest players to the red orbs enter it.
  • Don't stand near the crater areas (especially the large one), as they will expand and explode when the mechanic begins.
  • Blue telegraphed attacks in a star shape will periodically appear, these will imprison you if hit by them.
  • Two tentacles marked with a red orb will appear, followed by another three after it (2 in Hard Mode).
  • Run next to them with your partner and throw a Destruction Bomb on them, this will break the red orb and spawn a yellow telegraph that pulls you up to the boss.
  • Maximum two people per red orb.
  • Both players must be caught within the yellow telegraph.
  • Everyone pulled up to the boss will survive her wipe attack and complete the mechanic.


  1. Occurs at or near x55 bars.
  2. The Boss teleports to the center of the arena and spawns blue telegraphed lines in all directions.
  3. A stagger bar appears below her feet.


Normal Mode

Players spread out to these positions:
Party1: x3
Party2: x3+1

  • Run to the outside of the map while avoiding the blue telegraphs.
  • Getting hit by the attack will stun you.
  • The Boss gains 36 stacks (tentacle connections)
  • Throw Destruction Bombs or use long range skills on the tentacles to eliminate the connections.
  • When the connection is severed, yellow telegraphs will spawn and pull anyone caught within them to the boss, making them unable to move, avoid them!
  • The remaining stack amount (connections) decides the difficulty of the stagger required to break her.
  • Run to the boss and stagger it quickly.
  • When successful, she will transition to the next phase.

Hard Mode Differences

Three different types of orbs are attached to some of the tentacles:

  • Black & Black+Spikes

Periodically creates blue telegraphed attacks that stun you for 5 seconds if hit.

  • Red (Raspberry)
  1. When destroyed, a debuff is applied to all players for 15 seconds:
  2. -95% damage and -100% stagger and destruction
  3. Players are killed if both red orbs are destroyed.
  4. It is highly recommended to not break these and warn your teammates with pings of their locations.


  1. Occurs at or near x38 bars.
  2. The hands on the boss transform into claws.
  3. All eyes on the floor stop moving and point towards a location.


Regular Method

  1. The boss starts performing multiple dashes.
  2. Look at the eyes and go to the spot they are pointing at.
  3. This general location will be the safe zone after the dashes.
  4. Before the 3rd dash, the eyes disappear, and a safe zone appears.
  5. Quickly go inside it and dodge the final dash of the boss with either space bar or a push immune skill.

Balthor Method

  1. Use Sidereal: Balthor to trigger the special Frenzy & Endorphin Raid mechanic, if everyone has collected Organ Stacks from killing blobs on the ground until this point.
  2. This will let you ignore the Eye Safe Zone and just tank the pattern.
  3. Deplete the shield of the boss within 25 seconds to complete this mechanic.
  4. Utilize Atropine Potion and Dark Grenade to make it in time.


  1. Occurs at or near x35 bars.
  2. The boss initiates a cutscene that displays a Large Eye in the center of the map.


  • Spread out around the arena in x3 & x3+1 formation.
  • The eye in the center of the map will pull you towards it.
  • Giant Hands will spawn on the outer edges of the map trying to attack you.
  • The boss will perform the Dash-Grab-Dash attack multiple times during this time.
  • Look at the mini-map to locate the boss and avoid the Giant Hand attacks at the same time.
  • When the Large Eye vanishes, you can move inwards and look for a counter opportunity on the boss to save all grabbed players.
  • If countered, the mechanic ends, but the Giant Hands remain till the end of the fight.
