    Beat him on Viper Mirage! Took several tries (around 7, used the standard raid build because I was too lazy to mess around with stuff).

    I really hope ANet makes more boss fights like these! They were truly epic and challenging. It's sad how many "sponge" bosses there are in the game--these were a great rebreather. Ossa doesn't have any screen clutter skills which is a pleasant surprise.

    Oh, I also liked Suriel's return :)

  • I found Staff DD with D/P(Headshot for breakbar) the easiest. Vault+bound easiest way to cheese the fight imo. Beat him on 2nd try.

    did on minstrel chrono lmao. ether signet, well precog, illus def, moa sig for cc (in CS), sw/sw */sh, blocks for days, chaos for stab on shatter. dps was a bit tight but worked out

  • gert.7698gert.7698 Member ✭✭✭

    I did it on my berserker, with GS and mace/shield. Use the shield to block attacks, en GS to dodge attacks. The mace is also usefull to CC him after breakbar.

    Skills:
    Signet of stamina for faster endurance regeneration
    Endure Pain
    Defiant Stance
    Dolyak Signet for extra stab
    Elite: Head Butt for the CC

  • Voltekka.2375Voltekka.2375 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I used a spellbreaker, wvw roaming build gs- axe/shield. Utilities endure pain, Bull charge (for the cc), balanced stance, elite signet. Just try to dodge/full counter/endure pain/Block attacks until he jumps to the middle of the arena. BLOCK THE INCOMING PROJECTILE AT ALL COSTS. Cc, keep hitting, then go to the regular dodge/block/endure pain pattern until he jumps to the center again. Repeat. Should be easy enough, got it on my 3rd try

    Just run condi Mirage, spam the kitten out of portal, blink, Jaunt and Dodges, For the first cc use a single clone f3, For the seccond one use signet of domination.
    It is a cheap fight, one of the worst designs to ever come to gw2, Not fun, boss cheats by knowing where you are gonna walk to by input reading or some simillar method.
    Hope anet doesn't make this a trend, It just shows how bad quality can be once laziness takes place instead of creativity.
    It is just sad that you gotta use such a cheap strat since it is such a cheap fight.

  • mortrialus.3062mortrialus.3062 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Did it with a Staff / Axe+Torch condi mirage. Once you break his bar twice he melts super quick. It's just a matter of kiting him until you get the opportunity.

    I thought it was pretty good. Since you can't effectively damage the boss and he's an absolute wrecking ball in the first phase, you have to bring enough defenses to outlast him. However, once you dodge his sword throw and break his bar, the priority switches to taking him down quickly. I've seen it done by most classes while waiting for my turn.

    I used memestrel chrono and beat him on my second try. Tried to do it with soulbeast first, but I just didn't manage.

    no sucess with necro, but im using viper... i will try it with my wvw engineer that uses marauder gear and lots of defensives stuff.

  • Rayti.6531Rayti.6531 Member ✭✭✭

    Did it on my 2nd try on condi Weaver (Sword/Focus, swapped several traits and all utilities to defensive ones).

    It was a lucky run though -> I missed some dodges and was very low on HP several times throughout the fight. I was genuinely surprised when the achievement popped.

    Now back to 8 orb Liadri - somehow I was better at this the first time around :'( -> Thanks for letting me go through this all over again ANet! <3

  • Killed him as a Soulbeast on my 4th try. The trick is to evade/block/stunbreak until he goes back to the middle of the arena again. If you manage to dodge his "throw" attack when he is back in the middle his breakbar will come up. After that it is just to break the bar and start to dps while avoiding his attacks as much as possible until his second buff goes out.

    My gear was full Berserker with superior runes of durability for extra boon duration and toughness. During the figth I camped greatsword which has good dmg and a block on skill 4.
    For my traits I used:
    Nature magic: top-mid-mid
    Beastmastery: bot-mid-mid
    Soulbeast: top-mid-top

    For my utility skills I used:
    We heal as one, Moa stance, Protect me, quickening zephyr, strength of the pack

    The pet I used was the Rock Gazelle which gives more than enough CC for his breakbar together with greatsword skill 5.

    When you start the fight wait until he gets attackable. Directly after that use Moa stance followed by protect me, strength of the pack and quickening zephyr. After that use we heal as one and then merge with f5. With this start you get plenty of stability, swiftness, protection, quickness, regenertion and fury. When your stability, evades and greatsword skill 4 is not available anymore you will be saved by the soulbeast grandmaster trait. If you manage your dodges and utility skílls well you will be able to withstand his first assults until he gets back to the middle of the arena and initiats phase 2 (breakbar phase). Then break his bar and start killing him.

    Sorry if this write up is not completely clear. But I hope this will be of some help for you soulbeasts out there.

    Just run in a circle, use dashes/leaps to get as far awayf rom him as possible. Dodge his throw attack after he jumps into the middle, then break his bar. Repeat twice, then he becomes exposed and takes a ton of damage. Easiest fight of my life

    Bite me.

    Wiki says its around 20 seconds until breakbar appears. I checked with a timer and he never did teleport earlier than after 45 seconds into the fight for me. Seems kinda broken? How to defeat him when his initial "ill 1shot you lil bich" phase is more than twice as long as it should be?

    Oh did I hurt your precious feelings? My deepest apologies.

    Looking back at a video I recorded of this fight, the transition happens at exactly 30 seconds from engagement. Whoever wrote the wiki article probably just got it wrong. As for how you beat him? That's up to you. Due to the unusual mechanics of the fight, it might make sense to use tankier gear and load up on mobility, blocks, invulns, and evades. After all, the boss doesn't have a ton of health and if you can survive the first 30 seconds, you should be able to finish the fight.

    I've done this fight with full Viper and full Trailblazer (Mirage) and it was definitely easier with Trailblazer. The lost DPS doesn't matter, but being able to shrug off the damage he's dealing if you make a mistake is helpful.

    edited July 28, 2018

    Well 30 seconds would be no problem, but its just that he does not finish his roflstomp round after 30 seconds for me. Did a couple tries again just now and the longest I could survive until ultimately being downed was 48 seconds - still, he didnt go into the middle to throw his shield at all, just kept auto attacking me until i died.

    Thats not really nice of him.
    edit: and I already switched from Viper to Minstrel on my FB, I just can't seem to catch a break from his first phase.

    Oh did I hurt your precious feelings? My deepest apologies.

  • Felipe.1807Felipe.1807 Member ✭✭✭

    I did again yesterday on the first try...Firebrand is king for this i guess, mace/shield and x/focus...lots of blocks to the point that you can do it with closed eyes, just kite him around and after you break his first breakbar you can dps him, i was using mantra healing, quickness mantra for dps, hammer of wisdom and bane signet(guess its the name oft he power signet) to breakbar and "perma" stunlock him after first breakbar, and renewed focus in case you screw up and need to reset virtues to get blocks on demand with F3 and heals on F2, full griving armor and cele trinkets, Honor(for mace trait, plus heal on block and heal on dodge), Virtues(or radiance...cant really remenber lol) and FB.

    You didn't dodge his throw attack. He stomps in the middle, then charges it and throws a projectile. If he hits you with it it flies back to him and superbuffs him with 25 stacks of might and quickness etc

    Bite me.

    I have come to the conclusion these fights are extremely niche.
    Difficulty is entirely based on which (elite)specialisation or class you roll.
    Warriors can waltz through tier 1 and 2, and up to luriel in tier 3 because they can spam stuns and CC
    But once luriel warriors are fit for the grave only and you gotta run niche builds/classes for niche fights

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.

    I got through to Liadri on my Dragonhunter just fine (actually, more than fine - all the fights were over in no time). It was with Liadri that I had to switch profession, and after her I did try several different professions for the follow-up fights in tier 4. I am stuck at Turai now, but I am certain it is only a matter of patience, calm and focus, which today I don't have.

    It's not about "niche" builds at all. It's about using the traits/skills available to your class. You can win with a standard one-size-fits-all DPS build, but it might be a lot easier if instead you use traits/utilities that help you handle the specific mechanics of these fights. For instance, warriors have access to plenty of blocks and invulns. Why not use those against Turai Ossa? Surviving the first 30 seconds of the fight are the big challenge here. If you just go with a standard max-DPS build, you give up all of those tools you could be using to win!

    For Liadri, it's 100% about pass/fail mechanics. Allowing a Vision of Mortality to touch you or standing in the massive glowing orange area effect zones are automatic fails. But Liadri herself is nothing special. In fact, for the first phase of the fight she does literally nothing but light ranged damage that you can simply ignore! Build matters very little here. Just learn the mechanics and you win!

    Yeah well no kitten Sherlock, the only thing here is that he does not (!) teleport to the middle to throw his shield, he just chases me indefinitely until i die.

    Did it with necro... kind of a joke to be honest, if you manage to get past the first CC, even if he downs you, you can finish him by spamming 1 and 2 for next CC xD

  • Did it on dh, blocks for days. Working on core ele and think I can get it.

  • Hevoskuuri.3891Hevoskuuri.3891 Member ✭✭✭

    After about 50 tries I've decided to give up on this one. It's not worth getting my blood pressure off the charts.

    I've tried with multiple classes, followed every youtube guide perfectly, but I just can't beat this dude. I've managed to get him down to about 40% HP but that's it. Dodging and breaking both his bars has gotten rather easy (especially on Daredevil) but I can't seem to nuke him down fast enough; after breaking his bars I eventually run out of evades and he always one-shots me down at some point.

    Anyways, nice challenge from Anet and I really envy you godlike creatures who manage to kill him, especially with all gambits on. It's insane.

  • Alek Seven.2374Alek Seven.2374 Member ✭✭✭

    I did it couple times on my Zerk Herald, I just outrun him with F2, Facet of Elements and Impossible Odds (Shiro) and used staff to block, evade and CC with Staff 5.

    You can use fragments of faith... that literally blocks 4 of his attacks, if you find the little shields If you also take the trait that puts fragments of faith down you have 8. Not much further protection needed. i also took focus because scepter is so good.

    Defeated him without any food or utility buff.

  • To do it on DH - I've gone with Shelter and traps - Fragments of Faith, Test of Faith, Procession of Blades, Dragon's Maw. Weapons you want to use are - Mace / Shield + Greatsword. Traits - Honor 123, Zeal 223 , Dragonhunter 113. The idea is to run around and pick up aegis from your Fragments of Faith + Hunter's Determination. Then there's Mace 3 for additional block + Shelter. I've used Shield to add additional CC, but if you fail, try with Focus (F5 is 3 additional blocks). You should be able to CC with F1, GS5, Maw as well; other traps apply small CC as well due to DH11.

    I had the same problem initially with Daredevil, then realised I had to switch tactics after breaking both bars and just brawl it out.

    To do that I ended up taking Staff + S/P, Infilitrator's Signet, Roll for Initiative, Bandit's Defense and Impact Strike. After dodging and vaulting through the first phase using staff, I'd Steal to Turai and use Impact Strike to break his bar. Impact Strike wouldn't recharge in time for the second breakbar, so after Stealing I'd swap to S/P, use three Headshots and autoattack until he recovered. Then after that it was down to spamming Pistol Whip, along with Bandit's Defense and Impact Strike to cover me when I was low on initiative.

  • maddoctor.2738maddoctor.2738 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I killed him on my DH. Something that needs to be added because I see it all the time: you don't have to dodge his shield to get his break bar, you must not take any damage from his shield instead. This means that invulnerability works (if you run out of dodges) and so does teleporting fast away. I tried with Renewed Focus (it works) and also Wings of Resolve (it works too) Another option that I haven't tested: His shield is a projectile, projectile defense might work on it.

    For the last phase, after you remove his buffs, he can be CCed and conditions apply to him normally. You can cripple, immobilize and chill him, while killing him from a safe distance. You can also blind him, chain knockdown him, daze/stun him as well. You no longer need to dodge all his attacks and pay attention to defense, go full offence, keep him disabled and kill him quickly.

  • I tried it first with a Scourge (full Viper gear), using Sand Swell, Flesh Wurm and Spectral Walk, but he still managed to down me every time before the first breakbar. So I switched to Dragonhunter (full Berserker gear), finally made progress and managed to kill him. I used plenty of blocks to defend against his hyper attacks (F3, focus 5, "Retreat!", Shelter (healing skill) and the Renewed Focus elite skill for invulnerability (and a recharged F3 block)), coupled with dodging and keeping on running away from him. F2 is a good skill for escape as well, and it heals you too. After the 2nd breakbar he basically becomes a block of cheese and melts before your very eyes.

    Uff... I found the nerve today to give it another go, and it is so frustrating I want to cry. ;) The closest I got to a victory was getting him down to 7% health (7%!! Ahhhh!!!!!), but then I was downed and killed. This is the hardest challenge I have faced in GW2.

    P.S. I always get killed right after the center part (when I CC'd him and applied damage). Maybe I need to retreat sooner but find it hard to determine when.

  • Well I beat him on my third try or so, with my beserker holosmith just dodge and try to survive is attack phase, and cc him on his break bar stuff than burst him, repeat till he drop dead.

  • RoseofGilead.8907RoseofGilead.8907 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Tried on my Necro (in Reaper spec) about four times and failed miserably. Switched to one of my Guardians (dragonhunter), gave her my warrior's ascended armor and my necro's legendary scepter/ascended focus, and grabbed some food/sharpening stones. Put on all the aegis/invul that I could. Got it after about 12 tries, I think.

    Oh look. I have a signature now.

    Indeed - Necro downed state (if you have the spectral agony mastery) trivializes most gauntlet fights. I main an ele, and I was able to get most fights OK, but as soon as things got tough, I fell back to my (lesser geared and far less played) power reaper and cheesed the fight. Normally, I would have skipped it, but there are far too many AP involved in some of those fights.

    In Turai Ossa's case, I think I took him 80-0 from downed state, since he can't out-damage downed 1 heal when spectral agony is up. It also helps that his throw seems to always miss when you're downed.

    The heal on damage for spectral agony should either be reduced, removed, or given an ICD.

    Mirage, and you don't need to be good with it. Re-traited chrono to give mirage a go for the first time(after positive feedbacks from friends that did the fight) and beat Turai on my 2nd attempt while still on support chrono gears (commanders).

    I finally did it! Took a break, came back, let my DH at him again: Kingslayer, yay! =)

    Edit: Adding the build info (all armor and weapons, which are Sw/F and GS, are Berserker's):

    • Use Sw/F to avoid him (block, dodge, jump w/ F2, pick up Shards of Faith if available, or just evade while running), until the center fight
    • Use Sword skill 2 to teleport to him, if you have no dodge left against his ranged attack!
    • Tether him w/ F1, use Focus skill 4, quickly lay traps (elite skill first!) and switch to GS for burst damage and additional CC
    • Quickly get away from him as soon as he starts dealing damage again
    • Repeat
