After clearing the dungeon, you can pay gold to get additional loot. The recommended Combat Items are Elemental HP Potion, Time Stop Potion, Whirlwind Grenade and Swiftness Robe.

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.

Cheat Sheet

Main Patterns

Split

Split

Once the boss reaches x55 HP, the raid separates. One of the parties has to face the Human and the other one the Demon form of the boss. Which party faces which form is totally random.

Once the Sidereal gauge is full, use the Sidereal: Nineveh on the boss with the highest HP. In most cases, the Demon form should have the highest HP, since it starts with more HP. If the raid lead is in the party fighting the boss with lower HP, the raid lead needs to be passed to someone in the other party.

General Patterns

Ring Shockwaves

Ring Shockwaves

The boss gets stationary and levitates further away from the ground. After a short duration, ring shaped telegraphs appear around the boss. On Human form, the safe spot is between the red telegraphs. On Demon form, the safe spot is on the purple telegraph.

While moving on the safe spot, you have to dodge 5 projectiles which the boss slowly drops towards each of the player. You can do this by spreading out and slowly rotating in the same direction.
