Twisted Lord Greenscale

  • Twisted Lord Greenscale (“Twisted Greenscale”) usually follows a fixed pattern as you would see in general cooking: Tenderize -> Seasoned -> Roast -> Feast. All other times he auto-attacks the tank, which does significant damage.
  • The main part of this fight is positioning and avoiding Spicy Cloud AoE. Tank also needs to avoid Feast and Roast, but all other mechanics you can avoid by proper positioning.
  • You want to be behind Greenscale, but not directly behind him. In other words, stay at his sides.
  • The Tank needs to run to the Safe Area on Greenscale’s sides when Feast is being cast and then return to their original position.
  • Cleanse Seasoning DoT that gets placed on those who touch the Spicy Cloud AoE.

Grandmaster Atrophinius

  • Position yourself close to a Keg with a Satyr on top, but still within the ‘middle’ area of the encounter in-between all three Kegs. When you are targeted with “Last Call” (indicated by a red ‘target’ icon on your character) you should run behind a Keg.
  • When On The House is cast and red drinks (with blue AoEs) start appearing in the encounter, run over maximum of 4 of them to gain DPS and Healing buff. Make sure not to have more than 4 stacks or else you will be stunned and lose all stacks.
  • Interrupt Atrophinius’ “Binge Drinking” cast asap. Longer it takes to interrupt, the more he’ll heal and gain out-going DPS buff stacks.
  • Avoid the purple AoE that gets thrown by the adds (Flask of Dreamshine). If someone gets hit by it, the healer needs to cleanse it off asap since the damage can really add up.

Frozen Terror

  • Stay inside the orange AoE of a Bonfire to avoid taking damage from Blizzard Winds. You will also need to have Frozen Terror inside the orange AoE to lower his incoming damage-reduction buff, otherwise he takes hardly any damage.
  • When Frozen Terror casts Cold Snap, make sure to interrupt it or else you will be knocked back and take considerable damage.
  • Flash Freeze is cast on a random player who gets imprisoned in a Frozen Prison and is unable to move or use any abilities. DPS them down to break them out.
  • Hoary Blast is a frontal cone-like ‘breath’ attack that Frozen Terror aims at a random player’s last location. Get away from it.
  • When Frozen Rain is cast, avoid red AoEs.
  • When Thermal Dissipation is cast, run out of the large blue AoE.

Twisted Lord Twyl

In General Throughout The Fight

  • Spread out to reduce number of players getting hit by Nightmare Cloud or Fel Faerie Fire at any one time. Whoever has been randomly chosen to be the target of Nightmare Cloud should simply stay put so other players can run away. Let healer take care of keeping you up.
  • Run out of the purple/black AoE, Pool of Horrors that is cast on a random player and pay attention to where it is (since it can be quite hard to see due to the color scheme of the encounter).

Phase 1 (100% to 50% HP)

  • During Phase 1 Twisted Lord Twyl has a buff that reduces incoming damage by 90%. In order to deal normal damage to him you need to pull him to a Pentagram where he will be stunned, then use an ‘Enter Nightmare’ reactive ability that you get that will allow you to deal normal damage until his stun ends.
  • Tank pulls Twisted Lord Twyl on top of Pentagrams during Phase 1. Twyl gets stunned for 15secs and takes normal damage if you have the ‘Enter Nightmare’ buff.
  • When Twisted Lord Twyl is on top of a Pentagram, you will gain a reactive called ‘Enter Nightmare’. Use it to gain a buff that allows you to deal normal damage to Twyl whilst he is stunned. However, whilst you have the buff up, an add will spawn every 10sec. You will also get an ‘Awaken’ reactive ability. Click it to remove the buff (do this after Twyl breaks out of stun).
  • A random player will be forced into ‘Nightmare Mode’ (different from ‘Enter Nightmare’) where they will be able to see additional mobs that cannot be attacked or tanked. Only players who are in ‘Nightmare Mode’ can see and take damage from these adds. Either wait for the 20sec buff to end or go on top of a white Wisp’s AoE to recieve a ‘Go into the Light’ reactive ability to go back to normal mode. Get back to normal/awakened mode as soon as possible since the tank can’t tank the Nightmare adds and you will have to rely heavily on the healer to stay alive.

Phase 2 (50% HP and under)

  • During Phase 2 Twisted Lord Twyl no longer has the incoming damage reduction buff so you deal normal damage to him without having to stun him at a Pentagram. There’s no need to run to a Pentagram and it’s actually better not to do so.
  • For this phase, he will channel Conjure Nightmare, making 3 of the 4 quadrants of the room red. Go into the area that isn’t red (usually the area behind him). After he is channeled Conjure Nightmare for a while, 3 Nightmare Drake adds will spawn. Don’t be in front of them or you take considerable damage per second.
  • During this Phase – besides Conjure Nightmare – he also uses Auto Attack, Pool of Horrors, Fel Faerie Fire and Nightmare Cloud.

Note: If your party wipes to Twisted Lord Twyl when you’ve already pushed him to 50% hp or under; when you respawn, make sure to check his buffs. If he has the “Eclipse of Terror” buff up it means that he will start the encounter with Phase 2 mechanics.
