Having trouble with a boss or want more information on a particular ability? You can find a detailed guide to each boss including abilities and strategies below:

You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out

Objective:

Defeat Kronox on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Defeat the first boss, Kronox on expert difficulty.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

These Five Are Not Alive

Objective:

Disassemble five Keeper’s Gaze then kill Kronox on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

This involves killing 5 of the adds that spawn by using the reactive ability when you are behind them. Each time Kronox casts Keeper’s Gaze he spawns 4 adds.

If your party is particularly geared, make sure to inform them to hold back if you are waiting for the 5th add to spawn.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

It’s Always Been In The Dark

Objective:

Don’t get spotted by Keeper’s Gaze during the Kronox encounter on expert difficulty. (Personal Achievement).

Strategy:

Just make sure during the first boss encounter, Kronox, that you don’t get in front of any of the adds that spawn.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

No Disassemble!

Objective:

Disassemble no more than two Keeper’s Gaze during the Kronox encounter on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Keeper’s Gaze are the adds that spawn during the Kronox encounter. Disassembling them requires using the reactive ability when you are behind them. Simply don’t kill more than two of these during the encounter.

You will need to coordinate with your party members to make sure only one person is responsible for killing adds – if you choose to do so. The only issue with not killing adds besides having to heal through the Purge AoE after Kronox uses his laser ability is having to be careful to not run in front of the adds or get knocked back into them during Arc Blast (green AoE run-in mechanic).

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

The Doctor Is In

Objective:

Defeat Psychophage Primakov on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Defeat the 2nd boss, Psychophage Primakov in expert difficulty.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Trauma Team

Objective:

Defeat Psychophage Primakov without killing any captives on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

During the encounter, Captive adds will escape from their prisons surrounding the walls of the encounter. Psychophage Primakov will then use Hypno Snipe to turn them against the party.

Simply communicate with your party to not attack the Captive adds. Be extra careful during Add phase that you don’t accidentally AoE the Captives down.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Prismatic Haze

Objective:

Defeat Psychophage Primakov after surviving at least four waves of his Lethal Hallucinations on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

This will require informing the party prior to starting the encounter because it is unlikely you will have such low DPS that Psychophage Primakov would be able to cast 4 waves of Lethal Hallucination.

Lethal Hallucination is the add phase when Psychophage Primakov becomes inactive and a whole bunch of adds named “Lethal Hallucination” spawn. This happens each time Psychophage Primakov hits 100 Energy (max). Whenever Psychophage Primakov uses his AoE abilities it will increase his energy.

You will need to slow down or even halt DPS on Psychophage Primakov significantly. Just make sure his HP is low enough in case he enrages.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Off The Air

Objective:

Defeat Overseer Cowel on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Defeat the 3rd boss, Overseer Cowel on Expert Difficulty.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Cannonball Run

Objective:

Defeat Overseer Cowel without anyone being hit by a Wave of Distortion on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Tower of the Shattered Overseer Cowel 3

Wave of Distortion is the expanding electric/purple AoE that gets dropped on a random player by the Defense Turret.

You will need to co-ordinate with your party members to make sure they pay extra attention and completely avoid the max size of the AoE.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

A Minor Oversight

Objective:

Defeat Overseer Cowel while keeping at least 4 Legionary Sicari alive on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Legionary Sicari

The ‘Legionary Sicari’ are actually the ‘Stormwatch Sicari’. They are one type of melee add that spawns intermittently throughout the fight (they’re the ones in robes).

You will need to keep 4 alive. This requires prior communication with your party to not kill them – best not to use AoE abilities. The healer will need to be geared and so will the tank to stay alive.

You will need to properly keep track of this add and hold DPS if there aren’t 4 Stormwatch Sicari up.

Tip: If you are having trouble keeping the party alive, consider keeping the boss above 50% until you have all 4 Stormwatch Sicari up so you avoid Cacaphonic Crescendo.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Thunderscorned

Objective:

Defeat General Thunderscar on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Defeat the 4th boss, General Thunderscar on expert difficulty.

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Thunder From Down Under

Objective:

Defeat General Thunderscar without taking damage from Fury of the Thunder on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Fury of the Thunder is the pull-in and subsequent run-out mechanic. If you make it to the outer ring before his cast ends, you won’t take damage. Otherwise you are likely to die.

If you are having difficulty running out you can choose to use a soul that has a runspeed ability – like Rogue’s Ranger or Cleric’s Inquisitor’s Judicial Privilege. You can also choose to fight the boss in melee range so you have more time to run out (because you won’t waste time being pulled in).

Reward:

10 Achievement Points

Shockblocked

Objective:

Defeat General Thunderscar without any group member taking damage from the Greater or Lesser Shockwalls on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Tower of the Shattered General Thunderscar 3

The Lesser and Greater Shockwalls are the lasers that appear after the pull-in and run-out mechanic, Fury of the Thunder that General Thunderscar casts. Simply be in the blue areas indicated below (on the sides that aren’t the entrance or exit) to completely avoid them.

Tower of the Shattered General Thunderscar 1

You will need to coordinate with the players for this. Usually nobody will take damage from the laser walls but it is probably prudent to indicate you wish to complete this achievement prior to the encounter starting.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

No Clings Attached

Objective:

Defeat General Thunderscar without being hit by a Clinging Force on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Clinging Force are the small purple lightning balls that appear throughout the encounter and move about at random. This is a personal achievement – don’t get hit by the lightning balls.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Der Kommissar Is Down

Objective:

Defeat Commissar Varoniss on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

The tooltip is wrong for this achievement – you just need to kill Commissar Typhiria, the final boss of Tower of the Shattered Expert Difficulty (Level 60).

Reward:

5 Achievement Points.

Persuasion Evasion

Objective:

Defeat Commissar Typhiria without succumbing to mind control on expert difficulty. (Personal Achievement).

Strategy:

Each time you take damage from one of Commissar Typhiria’s abilities (other than Pain Lash) you will get a stack of Broken Will. At 10 stacks you will become mind-controlled for a short while.

Simply avoid her abilities. Most players should get this achieve automatically without trying.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Snuff The Magic Dragon

Objective:

Defeat Commissar Typhiria before she can use Dragon Form three times on expert difficulty.

Strategy:

Commissar Typhiria uses Dragon Form whenever she reaches 100 Energy (max). She gains energy from using some of her abilities. This is therefore a matter of DPS.

Almost every fight even with full brand-new expert-ready players should be able to complete this achieve. You will rarely see her turn into her Dragon form more than once in any group.

Reward:

10 Achievement Points.

Strategy:

Have everyone involved in killing adds during mini-events. Don’t fail the General Thunderscar mini-event. Other than that, high DPS will help you get this achieve.
