Alexander - The Fist 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.

Hummelfaust
Divider3.png
Attack Name Description
Faust Two Fausts appear on the north edge of the arena. Each tank should pick one up and face them slightly away from each other as they do frontal cleaves. If they are not killed in time, the raid will wipe.
Panzer Vor Used after the Fausts die. Drops a proximity marker on a random player.
Hummelfaust Spawns where Panzer Vor landed. Should be picked up by the MT and faced away from the group. Applies a stacking Physical Vulnerability Up debuff. Tanks should swap after ~4 stacks.
Panzerschrek Roomwide AoE damage. Used multiple times in a row.

Advice and Tips

  • Kill the Fausts at the North and have the group stay clustered near that side so the Panzer Vor doesn't end up in an awkward position.
Ratfinx Twinkledinks
Divider3.png
Attack Name Description
Red Syringe On the East side of the arena. Standing in the Energized Pole causes the needle to drip and leaves a purple puddle on the ground below it for a few seconds. Standing in the AoE turns the player into a Gorilla, which is used for Bomb's Away.
Purple Syringe On the West side of the arena. Standing in the Energized Pole causes the needle to drip and leaves a red puddle on the ground below it for a few seconds. Standing in the AoE turns the player into a bird, which is used for Boost.
Energized Pole Activates the Red & Purple Syringes for a few seconds. Damages and debuffs the player standing in the AoE. Shock Therapy is used after a player has stood in the AoE.
Bomb's Away Used when Ratfinx is normal-sized. Scatters Smartbombs around the arena. A player should use the Red Syringe to knock the bombs away with their skill, Browbeat, preferably into the far corner from the group. After a short time, the bombs will explode in a massive, heavy hitting AoE and apply a Vulnerability stack.
Boost Used when Ratfinx is giant-sized. Ratfinx pounds the ground four times, inflicting Vulnerability Up each time. Everyone should use the Purple Syringe to transform into a bird, which is necessary to avoid the ground pounds. Players should use Wing Cutter to deal damage to the boss while transformed and use Apothecary after the 4th pound to undo the transformation.
Shock Therapy A room-wide unavoidable AoE used after someone activates Energized Pole.
Glupgloop Used when Ratfinx is normal-sized. The player with the red marker over their head should run to another corner (preferably not in front of either syringe) to drop the poison puddle away from the group.
Concussion Used when Ratfinx is giant-sized. Hits the MT four times, inflicting headache for each hit. At four stacks of headache, the tank becomes concussed, stunning the MT and causing them to take increased damage. The boss will then wind up a long line AoE tankbuster. The OT should provoke when the MT reaches four stacks and take the tankbuster.
Adds Spawns random adds around the arena. Should be picked up by the OT.
  • Gobbledygroper: should be tanked facing away from the group as it does frontal damage.
  • Glassy-eyed Cobra: also does frontal damage.

Advice and Tips

  • The group should stick to the North side of the arena in either corner to make dealing with Bomb's Away easier.
  • If the OT pulls and takes three Concussion stacks, the MT can pick it up to take the fourth stack, leaving them with a single stack of Headache. Doing so will allow them to tank for the rest of the fight, as after being hit three times with Headache and becoming concussed, the fourth stack of Headache will hit, erasing the concussed status and leaving the MT with one stack of Headache again.
