Intro (Skip) – Putrid Shaclaw – LR-5 – Bonus Boss (Skip) – Sav-Rak – Tech Masters/Medics – Dr. Lorrick
I love this guy
This is a great boss fight, I think it’s the perfect balance of being fun and difficult
Compared to LR-5, this guy is a walk in the park (which is nice after the nightmare that is LR-5
Sav-Rak’s only has 1 real ability, and 2 fight mechanics:
Smash, and pipe jumping.
Every so often, Sav-Rak will use an ability called Smash.
(You’ll also get a nice message on screen ‘Project Sav-Rak prepares to ‘Sav Rak’ smash!’)
When he casts this, everyone has to pile on top of him.
After its 4.5 second cast, he will smash the ground, and emit a massive AOE knock-back.
If you are literally inside of Sav-Rak’s model, you will fly up in the air, then back down, and clamber up again*
If you are outside of his model, even by a meter – you will (probably) be knocked off of the platform and die.
*(I’ve noticed I can use unbreakable will in mid-air, and instantly resume attacking – rather than wait to fall to the ground and get back up)
n.b. Unbreakable will is my ‘freeing’ ability / frees me from incapacitating and movement-impairing effects.
The other ability to look out for, is when Sav-Rak jumps onto the pipes.
When he does this, the tank and DPS need to each hit a switch, located on the top left, and bottom left/right of the mini map:
During this phase, the healer needs to stand in the middle and heal people up (Sav-Rak spits poison that does a bit of damage)
