Valtan Phase 2 Introduction
Valtan Phase 2 is a TIER 3 Legion Raid and you need to be at least 1415 (Normal) or 1445 (Hard) Item Level to enter this Raid. This dungeon drops Tier 3 Accessories, Ability Stones, Engraving Books, Cards and materials to craft the sets listed below.
For more set related information, check out the Gear Set Guide.
After clearing the dungeon, you can pay gold to get additional loot. The recommended Combat Items are HP Potion, Time Stop Potion, Flame Grenade, Corrosive Bomb or Destruction Bomb.
This is the first Legion Raid which allows the usage of Sidereal skills to deal additional damage or to provide protection. On top of that, you can claim the Phase 1 rewards after clearing and continue at a later time with Phase 2 and new party members. Since this is the first Legion Raid, you have to put in more effort and coordination to survive.
Disclaimer: In this guide, we will only focus on the important core & general patterns of the boss. Basic attacks of him, which are easy to predict or deal low damage, won't be explained in detail.
It is important to make sure that everyone in the raid group is aware of the boss and coop mechanics. Additionally, item level is not as significant as having good Engravings and Combat Stat distribution as these provide the most damage increase which shorten the duration of the battle. A shorter battle leads to less damage taken and less consumable used.
This guide assumes that you are familiar with the recommended Raid Build for your class.

In each Legion Raid, once the bar on the top left is full, the raid lead has can activate the Sidereal skills to summon powerful allies. The bar fills up over time or gets a boost after specific patterns and interactions, like a Counter Attack. Using the Sidereal skills at the proper time can be a game changer.
If the raid lead dies, you can pass the party lead to another member to grant that person the access to use the Sidereal skills.
