Background and Initial Positioning
  • This Nightborne Astromancer has been using the power of the Nightwell to scout the worlds outside our sight. He’s not happy you plan to disrupt that power.
  • This fight has a lot of tank mechanics, but it has limited adds until the final phase. It consists of 4 phases that are triggered by remaining HP percentages.
  • Initial positioning isn’t terribly important. Simply pull the boss where he stands on the platform.

Abilities and Mechanics
Phase 1
  • Coronal Ejection
    • Etraeus will summon spheres near a player. The spheres will explode after a short time, applying a DoT to 4 targeted players. It is unavoidable.
  • Starburst
    • This is the tank-focused ability for this phase. It’s a simple magic-based attack that targets the enemy with the highest threat.

Phase 2 - Activated at 90% HP
  • Gravitational Pull
    • This ability affects a tank, telegraphing a Comet Impact. When this happens, the off-tank should taunt, and the tank should run to a clear location.
    • The impact will affect all players within a 5 yard radius.
    • Afterwards, the tank will be inflicted with Absolute Zero, a heavy DoT which can be removed by having 3 allies stand in the demarcated circle.
    • Players that help remove the debuff will be afflicted with Chilled. The debuff limits them from removing the DoT again for 12 seconds, under fear of being stunned for an extended duration.
    • For this phase, split your raid group into 2 or more groups and have your tanks alternate groups that they run to to remove the buff. Tanks should be careful to not get too close before the Comet Impact.
  • Icy Ejection
    • A variant of the original Coronal Ejection, this version spawns a sphere which inflicts nearby players with a debuff, causing them to Shatter after a time. This will cause them to dealing AoE damage.
    • Affected players must move from the raid so that Shatter doesn’t affect allies.
    • This sphere will always affect one of the Absolute Zero soak groups.
  • Iceburst
    • The unique tank ability for this phase, it’s a simple splash attack. Don’t stack with your off-tank or other players.

Phase 3 - Activated at 60% HP
  • Fel Impact
    • This is the phase-specific variant of Comet Impact. It’s very similar to the previous incarnation, except for applying another Gravitational Pull debuff and some interactions with the next mechanic.
  • Fel Ejection
    • This ability is similar in application to Icy Ejection, and players should run out of the raid when it is applied to them. Additionally, they will leave behind fel flame pools as they take damage.
    • Try and drop these pools in small, manageable stacks. Tanks can clear them by standing near them when Fel Impact hits.
  • Felburst
    • This phase-specific tank-focusing ability causes a stacking DoT.
    • Save CDs for higher stacks of this DoT, as your off-tank will be having to deal with other mechanics before switching.

Phase 4 - Activated at 30% HP
  • Void Impact
    • This is the phase-specific version of Comet Impact. This version does damage in a 5 yard AoE when landing, as well as spawning a Thing That Should Not Be.
    • The add will prevent most damage if tanked too close to the boss, so the tank should run far away before the impact lands.
    • This add is the highest priority target, as it deals raid-wide damage and fears those looking at it at the end of the Witness the Void cast.
  • Void Ejection
    • Similar to other ejections, Void Ejection will spawn on a player and deal AoE damage.
    • Unique to this phase, the sphere will summon Voidlings.
    • AoE disrupt and damage these ASAP, as they place a damaging debuff, Voidburst, on the target of their attacks.
  • Voidburst
    • The tank ability for this phase is a debuff gained from the boss as well as Voidling mobs.
    • This is a DoT that propagates when it expires, jumping to new targets. Therefore tanks should keep stacks as low as possible while managing adds and Void Impact.
    • This phase is particularly taxing on healers, as Voidburst causes substantial raid-wide damage that only increases as the fight continues. Try and be efficient in earlier phases to save CDs and mana for this one.
