Boss Fight

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.
