Skills and Abilities
As a boss type creature, the Engine Guardian is immune to all forms of crowd control effects. A tank is not really required for this fight, as the boss does not respond to taunts. Instead, it will move around the central pillar by itself. Every quarter round, the boss will randomly select a new "phase" to enter, and this is indicated by its color. It is possible to get two of the same phase in a row, but never three.
The boss glows red to indicate this.
Burst of Flame
The boss emits a short jet of flame around itself, doing very high flame damage over time to all players hit by it. Players should stay at range to avoid being hit.
The boss shoots fireballs at random players, doing high flame damage as indicated by red circles.
The boss glows blue to indicate this.
The boss does high shock damage to all players within its line of sight. Players can hide behind the central pillar to avoid this.
Summon Dwarven Sphere
At the same time, the boss summons three Dwarven Spheres to attack the party. These spheres do moderate damage and should be killed as soon as possible.
The boss glows green to indicate this.
The boss does high poison damage over time to all players in the room. Players can stop this by hitting the levers in the middle of the room. Alternatively, if heals are good enough, players can choose to heal through the damage instead. Doing so will net players an achievement.
