Be sure the full event is completed before engaging the boss, if you are within his aggro range as the event completes you'll take the AoE damage from the event and start with about 50k less then maximum health. This fight has a soft enrage as Crumbling ruin decrease the players health until you will be one shot by his abilities.

The mechanics are simple, everyone should avoid the Alpha Beam zones which is randomly cast on any player as a void zone type of ground AoE. Move out of these whenever targetted. About every minute, Anraphet channels Omega Stance, dealing damage to everyone. This ability can not be avoided and must simply be healed through. Not being too spread out to ease the healers job might be advisable.

These two mechanics rotate throughout the encounter.


Alpha beams now deal significantly more damage and leave a persistent puddle behind on the floor for the rest of the encounter. Omega stance also does more damage, but there are no changes except for the increase in damage. Crumbling Ruin now decreases maximum health by 10% per stack. Can be a though encounter if poorly geared, Bloodlust can be very helpful should this be the case and of course using any of your available cooldowns.
