A Relic Reborn- The Hydra.png
Left to starve in their abandoned training grounds, the fighting beasts of Halatali have survived on the flesh of the unprepared these past five years. Some have prospered more than others in the abattoir gloom; the hydra reposes fat and malignant, an apt pupil for your yet unfinished relic. Seek out this foul orphan of the Calamity, and let the bards sing of it.

※You cannot change weapons once bound by duty. Please ensure that you have equipped your unfinished relic weapon if you are undertaking this trial in order to complete the quest "A Relic Reborn."


Requirements: For eight players (2 tanks, 2 healers, 4 dps)
※The above composition requirement is not imposed upon preformed parties.

Restrictions: 60 minutes

Attack Name Description
Ball of Fire Targets a random player and leaves a long lasting fire puddle on the ground. Deals moderate tick damage. Avoid standing in the center.
Ball of Ice Targets a random player and leaves a long lasting ice puddle on the ground. Deals light tick damage and applies a Slow debuff while standing inside it. Avoid standing in the center.
Fear Itself The boss will move to the center of the room and begin casting this. Any players not standing beneath him (in his hitbox) will be Feared, causing them to run around and likely into any puddles or other AoEs going out.
Radiant Breath A donut AoE around the boss, with the safe spot in his hitbox or at max range. Being hit applies a Supparation debuff and deals moderate damage.
Mean Thrash Large conal tail swipe AoE. Knocks back players caught in it.
Wyvern An add that occasionally spawns during the fight. Not too difficult on its own, and can be tanked by either the off-tank or a DPS, but if not dealt with quickly will cast Bravery, increasing the damage the Hydra deals and reducing the damage it takes.
Dissever Attack that deals light damage to the MT.
Triumverate Frontal cone AoE that deals heavy damage.
White Breath Frontal cone AoE. Deals moderate damage and inflicts Infirmity, lowering the amount of healing received.

Advice and Tips

  • Tank the boss along one of the edges of the arena and avoid standing in the center to keep Ball of Fire and Ball of Ice out of the safe spot for Fear Itself.
  • Often a Wyvern will spawn after Fear Itself.
