This thread i opened to show Rogue tactics in fights with bosses 8+ rank of Brawler's Guild. (why 8+? Because from 1 to 8 levels the fights was very easy, all bosses dead from 1st try in zerg mode).
Discuss here any strategy and tactics for any bosses, give your oppinion, advices and tips for Rogues.
Special & Rare Bosses (Additional achievement "Now You're Just Showing Off"):
First three bosses isnt difficult at all. All killed from a few attempts, except Disruptron.
Just stay in the center of arena (as showed on video) to avoid all lasers.
Get a Shuriken Toss from talents and hit all crystals that you cant stack on yourself. (you can do it with focus to save some time).
- Millhouse Manastorm
Strafe from side to side all the time and put more attention to laser (the hardest part in this fight).
- Epicus Maximus
Hardest boss on this rank. Only 5% Rogues can kill it. Tips: Use first pre-potion before boss appeares, save your bursts for last-phase (35%). On the last phase the boss will activate 4/5 machines - its your time ti burst. Put smokeboms under yourself, kidney boss, use 2nd prepot and deal as much dmg as u can. Good luck 2 everyone.
- Disruptron Mk. 3R-Alpha
Challenge Card Bosses (Additional achievement "Deck Your Collection"):
One of the easiest boss. No special tips, just strafing and damaging like in fight with Tyson Sanders.
- Grandpa Grumplefloot
One of the easiest boss. No special tips, just strafing and damaging avoiding all bombs and dynamits.
- Master Boom Boom
No problems for ranges, but melee need a little to run to the opposite side when he casts Stasis Beam. Easy boss at all.
The easiest way to avoid all kicks is to move to the same side from what Tythar is going to kick.
The only one problem that can appears is when the boss is in corner / near the wall, the cast is not always interrupts even by FoK so you need 2 b rdy to use spring and run out.
- Dippy & Doopy
No problems for ranges, melee need to avoid face to face situation, but i killed it with full kite for fun.
Just kite Splat around big circle and spawning adds will not damage you.
Nothing difficult for ranges, but melee should a little run and jump. Ignore bear, stun lady. Shadowstep OP.
- The Bear and the Lady Fair
You need to create a chain of electricity through the small robots and then Blingtron will become available for damaging (+900%) but if you have good DPS you can try to kill him without chain. If you use minimum quality graphics - switch on middlle if you dont see rocket areas.
- Blingtron 3000
First round of paper stone scissors is a random, but even if you lose it, you can control Scissors like me on video and kill the boss easily, avoiding stones. The second round its impossible to lose.
Tactic is default: run & damage. Run around boss from fast shots, stay behind boss while he casting cone ability and avoid all round aoe (radious is pretty big). Sprints are welcomed.
- Blind Hero
The hardest boss of all other card bosses. Boss is DPS, speed and cooldown distribution check, where itemlevel is recommended 525+. Delete Vendetta glyph, Leeching poison is recommended. Use Combat Readiness + 2 Evasions, Blind and Smoke Bomb. Use 2 prepots. Burst first monument with ShadowBlades, the second with Vendetta. Then put Rupture on the 3rd and switch to the fourth. Delete stacks by Cloack on the 50% of second statue. Sprint/Shadowstep is obligatory .To understand the rotation of cooldowns you need to check my video kill and make some tries. Good luck Rogues!
- Mingus Diggs
Rank 8 Bosses
First and hardest boss on this rank. Get a "Cheat Death" talent - it gives you the second chance. Here is no tips, just practics and be attentice.
Second boss of this rank. Zerg-tactic: just run over the whole arena and damage boss, avoiding the explosion chickens that deals pretty much damage.
- Tyson Sanders
Third boss of Rank 8. Robot has a 2 phase - melee and range. Make 10 stacks in melee then run out from boss and he drop all stacks. Repeat it 2-3 times and got it.
- T440 Dual-Mode Robot
The last boss on this rank. A little more harder than previous two, but not so much. Tip than i didnt do on my video: kill one water lemental BEFORE using 1st stun - it gives you time in future. To stun the boss you must stay backwards to him. When you damaging boss while he isnt in stun - he reflects alot of damage, this is not advisable. With good dmg you can kill him in 2 stuns.
Rank 9 Bosses
Use 1 FoK => 1 cp Rupture on each bomb. Feint is OP. Keep feint permanently when bombs are die. Leeching poison is better than Cheat Death.
- Big Badda Boom
Switch from run to walk by button "/" and kite snake backwards from outside to inside to the center. Dont stop and dont use any sprints, if Nibbleh stops for 1 second he gains 1 stack of buff that is deadly and impossible to survive.
The same mechanic as Blind Hero from challenge card. Walk around boss and run out from aoe damage (pretty big radius).
- Doctor FIST
Last boss of Rank 9. You must damage 3 angels until 50% than they dash into boss (not into you coz dmg is lethal). On second phase you need only burst boss interrupting time to time the healing cast and run out from the circle of spheres (use Shadowstep - you tp to the back of boss and avoid all spheres). Save Cloak of Shadows on the berserk if you dont have enough dps and cant kill in time. GL everyone.
P.S: I will update this thread as often as i can to show you the general mechanics of Rank 9 and new Rare bosses ofc.
Good luck and wish you to kill them all easily ;3
