Quick Summary: Archive of Flesh

Tzul

Archive of Flezh Tzul Banner

  • Bone Shrapnel is a mechanic throughout the fight where the one wall will pulse red and shoot out this ability. The ability deals damage and reduces stacks of Tzul’s ‘Statis Hardened Husk’. Players who get hit by it will receive stacks that increase incoming damage on themselves.
  • Tank pulls and positions Tzul so that the tank and melee DPS are in the middle of the bridge and Tzul is positioned just before the middle of the bridge with his back to the currently active red ‘Bone Shrapnel’ wall.
  • Interrupt Heighten Panic.
  • When he uses Wall of Infinite Agony, run right out of the purple AoE, wait for him to finish his channel and then reverse positions.
  • Tzul does not cleave so it is okay to be in front of him.

Filth Gorger Vorka

  • Everyone take a corner and be responsible for clicking one of the Levers in the four corners of the room (other than the Tank).
  • DPS Frightened Experiment add whenever it spawns.
  • Avoid the AoE that drops from Frightened Experiment adds (if you’re melee DPS or Tank).

Emphalea

  • Stand near a Pedestal, but not close enough that Barnacle Encrusted Trident’s AoE will cover it (so you don’t get knocked back due to the AoE when trying to run to a Pedestal).
  • When Emphalea begins casting Flood the Halls, run on top of a Pedestal and stand in the middle area (not the ‘petals’ or the ‘ramp’ of the Pedestal) until her channel ends.
  • When Emphalea casts Depth Charge, watch the area below her for a red indicator and avoid the area that the red indicator is aimed at.
  • If you happen to be in the way of Depth Charge, run right through one of the orbs as fast as possible. The longer you wait, the larger the orb gets and the more ticks of damage you will take.
  • If she uses a 360 degree Depth Charge (usually under 15% hp) you should stand right below her to completely avoid the orbs.

Animator Cahail

  • Pay very close attention to the Frenzied Embrace AoE that appears in the North, East, West, South and Middle areas of the room – that’s the main mechanic of the fight. The lower Animator Cahail’s HP is, the more AoEs will appear at any one time.
  • Frenzied Embrace AoE’s damage is slightly larger than the graphic so make sure to be as far away as possible from it.
  • Interrupt is optional when Animator Cahail casts Monster Remodelling – but it is preferred to interrupt this to make life easier for the healer since a successful Monster Remodelling cast increases the damage the Horrific Construct Adds do.
  • Avoid the rectangular AoE that Cahail casts at his current target (the tank).

Ahzrius

  • Interrupt Morphic Wave whilst it is being cast. Interrupting after the boss has 3 stacks of the Morphic Wave buff will allow for your interrupt cool-down to reset prior to the next 3 stacks. Successfully interrupting Morphic Wave will remove all stacks of the Morphic Wave Buff. If Ahzrius reaches 4 stacks of the Morphic Wave Buff, he will teleport to a random location and cast Wave of Mutilation at a random player. Anyone who touches Wave of Mutilation takes damage.
  • Run into the purple AoE surrounding Ahzrius before he finishes casting Drastic Renovations. You should make sure you aren’t too far from Ahzrius at any point in time so you actually have time to run in for Drastic Renovations.
  • Genetic Alteration puts a large, green cone AoE aimed in front of a random player. After a few seconds the player will become stunned and start vomiting. Anyone caught in the AoE will take damage per tick. Any Child of Ahzrius Add caught in the AoE will instantly die and drop a yellow Primordial Miasma AoE that does damage to anyone inside. Aim Genetic Alteration away from the raid and adds so you don’t have to deal with Primordial Miasma AoE.
  • Unnatural Selection – When Unnatural Selection begins, the two random players who get ported should click on Levers or dodge AoE depending on which room they get teleported to. Those players who haven’t been ported should DPS Ahzrius.
