Gelidra – Hardmode Strategy/Guide

Health: Gelidra – 34 Million HP    Amrien – 31.7 Million HP

  • Enrage Timer: 6 Minutes 30 Seconds
  • Essential Abilities/Traits: Interrupt, Cleanse (preferably  Sterilize from purifier)
  • DPS Requirement: 195K

Suggested Raid Setup:

    •  Tanks: 2 tanks, any kind will work
    •  Healers: 4 tank healers and 1 raid healer (For example: 2 lbv chloro, 1 defiler, 1 purifier, 1 warden)
    •   Support: 1 bard, 1 archon
    •  DPS: 11 dps, ranged strongly preferred.

    HARDMODE SUMMARY

    The hardmode will be initiated by breaking the shield on Amrien (in an ice block behind Gelidra, you can kinda see him in the image above)

    New mechanics:

    • Everything hits harder
    • Amrien – new boss that must be DPSd down with Gelidra. HP needs to be kept within 10% or they will both enrage and kill the raid. He has slightly less health than Gelidra and is attackable in her air phase so make sure you balance your DPS out between the two properly. They should be tanked in the center of the room to minimize the effects of the hardmode mechanics.

    Artifex Zaviel – Hardmode Strategy/Guide

    Health: Artifex Zaviel – 49.4 Million HP:

    • Enrage Timer: 5 Minutes 30 Seconds
    • Essential Abilities/Traits: None
    • DPS Requirement: 170K

    Suggested Raid Setup:

      •  Tanks: 2 tanks, any kind will work
      •  Healers: 4 raid healers (For example: 2 lgv chloro, 2 wardens)
      •   Support: 1 bard, 1 archon
      •  DPS: 12 dps, ranged or melee will work

       HARDMODE SUMMARY

      The hardmode will be initiated by killing the idol that will spawn on the left side of the room. Do not waste any DPS on the boss because she will full heal after the idol is defeated and hardmode is activated.

      New mechanics:

      • Everything hits harder
      • Spheres of Repair can no longer be interrupted. These should be burned down ASAP ST after the idol is defeated to keep her from healing much.
      • Lasers! – Very similar to last phase of Crucia lasers, but spawn 5 at a time. Give a warning pulse for about 4 seconds before they are placed. The red circle itself isn’t harmful, but the laser beams inside will kill you. By the time a new set spawn the old set will fade away.

      Artifex Zaviel – Hard Mode Strategy

      This is outdated: Find the full guide by clicking here!

      For anyone who may be working on hard modes, I’m providing a preliminary strategy to the hard modes that I have information on. These may change as more information comes out, but most of the important mechanics are mentioned below – it’s too early to define “the best” strategy on hard modes at this time.

      The fight is similar to non hard-mode, so ensure you’re familiar with Artifex Zaviel on normal. I hope you are, because going right into hard mode probably isn’t the best idea 😛

      Artifex Zaviel – 49,4 Million HP

      Destroying the idol will activate hard mode with Zaviel.

      Raid Makeup

      The raid makeup doesn’t really change a whole lot.

      • 2 Tanks
      • 5-6 Healers (1 Tank Chloro, 1 Puri, 1-2 LGV Chloro, 1-2 Warden – If you have issues add another healer in the area you’re having problems with – there’s a tight enrage timer here, though.)
      • 2 Support
      • 11 DPS – As a side note, Tacts would be great for this fight – similar to how they are on Matriarch.

      Gelidra – Hard Mode Strategy

      This is out of date. Click here to view the more current/detailed version.

      For anyone who may be working on hard modes, I’m providing a preliminary strategy to the hard modes that I have information on. These may change as more information comes out, but most of the important mechanics are mentioned below – it’s too early to define “the best” strategy on hard modes at this time.

      A lot of the mechanics are similar to Gelidra non HM – so take a peak at that guide if you want to brush up.

      Gelidra HP: 34.0 Million HP

      Amrian (mini boss) HP: 31.7M HP

      Raid Makeup

      The raid makeup doesn’t really change a whole lot.

      Gelidra – Strategy

      General Introduction:

      Gelidra is the 1st boss in Frozen Tempest which is a 2 phase fight that alternates between the two phases. For the first 40 seconds, Phase 1, you fight her until she switches to Phase 2. In order to return to Phase 1 you need to kill the Shrouding Vortex.  After the first switch from Phase 1 to Phase 2 she will do it every minute throughout the fight.

      Raid Make Up:

      Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli – Strategy

      General Information:

      Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli are the third Boss encounter you will engage within Frozen Tempest and you will attribute some of their peculiarity to King Molnar and Prince Dollin.

      Suggested Raid Composition (if using 2 tanks on each twin and splitting sides):

      • 4 Tanks
      • 1 Defiler, 2 Chloros, 1-2 Wardens
      • 2 Support (Archon and Bard)
      • 9-10 DPS

      Kolmsasveli and Toinenveli – 35.6 Million HP

      Main Abilities:
      • Devestating Shock – hits 10 players after a 1.5 second cast which deals 6k initial damage and ticks for 4k each second over 6 seconds. This is being cast randomly by both giants and is invisible at the moment so in order to dispell it you must watch to see where they land.
      • Kolmsasveli’s Ire – Tank swap mechanic, if not swapped in 6s, the tank will be near 1 shot. Note: This CAN be blocked/dodged/parried and it will have no effect.
      • Toinenveli’s Ire – Tank swap mechanic, if not swapped in 6s, the tank will be near 1 shot. Note: This CAN be blocked/dodged/parried and it will have no effect.
