Alexander - The Arm of the Son.png
Although you succeeded in destroying the core of Gordias, it seems that was only a temporary measure. The walking fortress has stirred once more, and its left arm now rests on the banks of the Thaliak. The entrance lies open and unguarded, suggesting the goblins inside are as surprised as you. Take advantage of your enemy's unreadiness and face the Illuminati threat once more─hopefully for the last time.

  • Clear the Upper Arm: 0/1
  • Arrive in Illuminus: 0/1
  • Arrive in the electrocution gallery: 0/1
  • Defeat Quickthinx Allthoughts: 0/1

Quickthinx Allthoughts
  • Trash
    • The Upper Arm is split into 2 paths, each with 4 tubes that can only accept a single player. Split into balanced parties of 4 and have each party use the tubes on their side to reach the trash pulls.
  • Boss
    • Sizzlespark - Unavoidable arena-wide AoE.
    • Sizzlebeam - A purple diamond marker appears above a player's head. The marked player should run to the side of the boss to avoid hitting other players with the beam.
    • Uplander Doom - Repeated stacks of Physical Vulnerability Up on the main tank. Tanks should swap midway through this attack to split the stacks from it.
    • Flashthoom - An orange circle marker appears over a player's head. The marked player should stand away from any other players, as Quickthinx will pull anyone nearby into a jail:
      • Padlock (DPS) - The jailed player must not move or use any actions. Wait for the other players to destroy the lock to free them.
      • Alarum (DPS) - Kill the alarum before it goes off.
      • Lumbertype Magitek Vangob G-III (Tank) - Kill the add, avoid getting knocked back into the walls.
      • Concentrated Poison (Healer) - Stand on the gas vent and heal through it.
    • Sturm Doll - Stun Kugelblitz.
    • Corporal Punishment - Large orange AoE that inflicts a 60s bleed. Can drop multiple times from the same player, so keep moving.
    • Weight of the World - 1-2 large metal balls roll around the room in straight lines, bouncing off walls. Keep an eye on their direction and stay out of the way.
    • Bombs - Bombs drop and chain to random players. The chained players should drag the bombs away to different corners.
    • Shanoa - The cat follows Quickthinx around, periodically meowing to spawn a True Heart. Pull Quickthinx away from the cat, and from the hearts if they get close.
      • True Heart - A heart appears and flies toward Quickthinx and must be destroyed before it reaches him. Use Stun/Heavy skills and stand in front of it to slow it down.
