I – Introduction

The Uber Elder is located in The Shaper’s Realm. This is the final boss fight of the game. In order to have The Elder spawn within The Shaper’s Realm, you will have to have retrieved all of the Memory Fragments, must have defeated The Shaper and have defeated all the Elder Guardians.

II – Boss Fight

This boss fight contains both Shaper and Elder. During the fight you will be able to damage one of the bosses while the other will be immune to all damage. The immune boss will have a spherical shield around them. Once one has taken enough damage the immunity shield will switch and the other boss will be vulnerable. After a certain amount of damage has been done to both bosses, both will become immune and a minion phase will start. After a certain amount of time the minion phase will end and the process repeats. There are 3 minion phases and after the 3rd minion phase both Shaper and Elder will be vulnerable and can be killed. Elder can only be killed last as he will remain at 0 hp unless the Shaper is dead.

Miscellaneous:

  • Stibnite Flask – Creates a smoke cloud, inflicting blind during flask effect. This makes it easier to avoid damage since monsters can not target the player directly if blinded.

General Rule of Thumb:

  • The Shaper’s Vortex accelerates during this fight
  • Kill the squid Minions quickly to prevent them from dropping Physical Damage Over Time Degeneration ground effects.
  • Run into Zana’s Proximity Shield at the end of the fight
  • Open the vortex balls near the edges of the arena or in the same place
  • Having a good way to get out of the Siphon is really important. Juggernaut, Kaom’s Roots, an adrenaline flask, or lightning warp are best to deal with Siphon.
