Vykas Gate 3 Introduction
Vykas Phase 3 is a TIER 3 Legion Raid and you need to be at least 1430 (Normal) or 1460 (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 Elemental HP Potion, Time Stop Potion, Whirlwind Grenade and Sleep Bomb.
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.

Sword & Clones
4 Orbs (Hard Mode only)
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.
Red or Black
Besides from the double dash counter you encountered in Phase 2, she gets an additional counterable move. For this, she flies briefly up and spirals above the players. At the end of the spiral, you can counter her for a brief moment.
If you miss the counter opportunity, she punishes the player by applying a Seduction Gauge increase area around a random player and crushing back to the ground while creating huge shockwaves.
