Boss Tips

General Boss Tactics
-The boss cannot be tanked, he will fixate players (prioritizing ranged) with Iron Gaze/On the Hook and walk towards them
-If the boss finishes casting the Iron Gaze/On the Hook he will cast Hangman’s Noose/Meat Hook
-Prevent the boss from finishing his cast by kiting him into bombs left by Heavy Ordnance which will deal damage and stun the boss for 6 seconds
-Prioritize Boss on this fight and cleave the adds down
-CC the second set of adds that spawn and then adds will no longer spawn afterwards
-Move out of Heavy Slash if the add is facing towards you while casting it

Monk Specific Tips
Tiger’s Lust the Iron Gaze/On the Hook target for them to more easily kite the boss into bombs
Provoke the boss to make him move faster to help get him into a bomb at the last second
The Adds are CC’able which includes Leg Sweep/Paralysis

General Boss Tactics
-Keep close to the boss to prevent her from using Gut Shot
-Keep her close by slowing or rooting her or else she will jump away because of the Elusive passive
-Move behind her when she casts Clear the Deck
-When she reaches full energy she will Withdraw, watch out for the order the cannons light up and dodge the void zones on the ground accordingly.
-Focus the cannoneer when the adds come down. He will drop his Unstable Ordance on the ground when he dies. You can pick it up and use the extra action button to revert to phase 1

Monk Specific Tips
-Cast Disable on Lockwood to keep her slowed for the whole fight.
-Keep a transcendence spirit down as a safety net in case you end up in a bad spot in phase 2

General Boss Tactics
-Avoid Brine Pools as they deal high ticking damage
-Move out of Break Water casts as it deals huge damage, knocks up, and leaves a brine pool
-When he reaches full energy he will cast Tidal Surge, dodge the wave by standing near the statue so that the wave misses you

Monk Specific Tips
-Use your high mobility to easily dodge Tidal Surge
-Use Touch of Karma and your other defensive to mitigate the huge initial damage that Break Water does

General Boss Tactics
-Kill the tank tentacle first and then the tentacles to free the engineer
-A maximum of 5 tentacles per platform will spawn
-If they remain untanked they will cast Hull Cracker which will wipe your group quickly
-If you fall behind on tentacles consider briefly tanking one with Touch of Karma to help your group catch up
-When the engineer is freed he will fix the cannon and allow you to shoot the boss dealing 33% of its Maximum Health
-Repeat for 3 platforms and defeat the boss
-Spread away from other people if you are affected by Putrid Waters
-Move out of Call of the Deep circles on the ground

Monk Specific Tips
– **IMPORTANT** Diffuse Magic will remove the Putrid Waters debuff which makes the fight much easier on your healer
