Alexander - Soul of the Creator (Savage) - A12S
By David Bacalus of Death and Taxes <DnT> on Gilgamesh


General


"As the crystalline heart of the primal swells ever greater, its thirst for power unquenchable, your only hope lies in calling upon the knowledge of the Enigma Codex to cut off the flow of aether to the colossus's core. So it is that you and your companions must make a final, brave foray into the belly of the great steel beast. Yet your path will not be an easy one, for the Illuminati mastermind Quickthinx has promised that your next journey to the core will be your last. Who will be judged worthy of inheriting the future, and who will be cast aside as a forgotten afterthought to history? Your final confrontation with the Illuminati is at hand!"

Minimum required average item level is 255.

Enemy Ability List

Note: Damage amounts listed DO include Protect mitigation but nothing else. Due to the difficulty with calculating damage reduction due to physical defense and magical defense, the "Dmg Target" column will tell what type of player the "Dmg Estimate" is for. Example: If "Dmg Estimate" says "20k" and "Dmg Target" says "DPS" that means a DPS with Protect but no other mitigation would take about 20k damage from the attack; a tank would take less damage from the same attack.

These damage estimates are for players with an average item level of 250.

Pre-Pull Preparation

Before pulling, there are a few things you need to do:

  • Put down waymarks. Recommend putting them along one side of the arena, directly right or left of the three buttons on the ground.
  • Decide where to position the boss on pull, and which direction to face him.
  • Determine where healers and ranged dps will stand for passing Brighteyes (in both phases 3 and 4).
  • Decide who will LB the adds at the end.

Positioning the Boss

During the fight there are two times where you're going to want to hold the boss in a very specific spot. The first of these times is right at pull in phase 1. We prefer to pull the boss not far from where he starts. Position him just to the right of the northern trap (crystal), and face him north.
