      • Neutron
        • A Neutron gets spawned for each player in the arena

        • Once wyrmhole turns white, stand on it to be able to damage Astellarn
        • Getting hit by the Nebula hurts the team by around 5,000 damage
      • This cycle rotates until dead

        • Can be healed by initial hit using resonance
        • spire.png
      • Air support
        • A red circle with arrow will appear on the ground aiming at a player, after a few seconds a black dragon flies by causing a line of ice/shock/poison to appear for a few seconds
        • Target circle will move if the player moves as its preparing
        • bombing.png
      • Eggs
        • There are three piles of eggs in the room, shock, ice, and poison
        • Players will get a yellow arrow telling them where to run, as well as a visual appearance of the style of attack
        • The attack style is also noted in a dialogue pop up
        • Once you get the charge you will get a timer bar, run to an egg that is of a different style than the charge you got (i.e. poison charge going to ice or shock)
        • Failure to do so will result in a 4-5k hit

  • Black Stone Dragon
    • Stats
      • Combat Level: 25000
      • Life Points: 650,000
      • Primary attack is magic, can use all three
    • Specials
      • Rock spikes
        • Screen shakes and a row of spikes will move towards the players location when cast
        • Hits a 5x5 area of spikes once it reach location, dealing upwards 5,000 damage
        • avoid by moving at least three squares away (more to be safe)
      • Black Hands
        • Around 550,000 the BSD will move to the center of the arena and four black hands will spawn on each corner
        • 80,000 LP and high defense
        • Very short attack range, and attacks with magic
        • Once magic hit lands a row of shadow hands crawls towards the player where they took the hit from
        • handlocationsforums.png
      • Spiral Fire
        • Row of white fire starts making a circle around BSD, spiraling inwards
        • Stay close to BSD until the first circle is almost done, then run away as the beginning clears away
      • Shadow Bombs
        • BSD sends a projectile that looks like its default magic attack to a part of the arena
        • These bombs hit hard and in a massive area, but do not travel far
        • Surge/Run/Dive out of the bomb area if you get caught in it
      • Flying/Tracking fire
        • At around 250,000 BSD will start flying and landing around the arena, much like phase two vindicta
        • Each time BSD lands a ball of white fire is placed down
        • This fire tracks and slowly crawls towards every player in the arena
        • Focus on avoiding fire/creating dead zones between all of the flames as they last awhile
        • Fight resumes as normal after this goes on for a little while

 

 

*All of these bosses are pretty nice with announcing their attacks and most are pretty easy to avoid. The issue is their high defense turn a normal fight into an endurance challenge as even someone with max gear will splash hits occasionally.
