Deathlius Loss'end is an optional boss in the Vryllon Citadel epic raid. Defeating him makes the final battle against the Shardlord easier and restricts a mechanic, though it is not required but extremely recommended on difficulties such as Rising mode. In Adventurer mode, it is the only boss in the Shattered Memories wing.

During the fight, the raid enters Deathlius' mind, hoping to obliterate the madness within. After being impaled by Vlaadtu in the Osiris Eye and unleashing his inner evil, Deathlius was regarded as one of the most dangerous beings in the world, such as so that Kaijin No Sai said if he ever lost himself, it would bring about a considerable end for some. As a result, the adventurers confront Deathlius himself who still maintains his fearsome aura and subjects the raid to a test of true combat. He is considered to be one of the hardest bosses in the whole Citadel, if not harder than the Shardlord himself.

Background

Dungeon Guide

After being impaled by Vlaadtu in the Osiris Eye, Deathlius was subject to horrific nightmares and a sense of evil only his will could keep quelled. But after the loss of his wife Rose, in the Battle of the Rain, Deathlius gave in to evil and unleashed his inner demon. Now, he asks the adventurers to either let him restore his mind, or battle the evil within to put it to rest just for enough time to fight Shardlord without having to worry about it.

Encounter Design

You've seen what he has been through the whole expansion, and you've heard him admit the only ones he think he couldn't beat is the courage of the adventurers. But then there was this - it might be his final days, and the adventurers never got to test his strength. Well now they can, and it won't be easy, since Deathlius never holds back. We had to scale down several parts of his fight because he was one-shotting all of us even in Rising gear on Standard difficulty. I would suggest you be prepared, like, more prepared than you ever have been.

Overview

Deathlius is a three phase encounter with two built in bar mechanics that correspond to the raid, and to him as well. He has many combos and attacks which truly test the raid's skill, cooperation, and ability to react in the smallest of moments, such as his insta-kill attacks. It is a damage for survival and a DPS race. The longer you take to fight Deathlius and save him, the more stronger and evil he gets, as well as making the raid mechanic tougher to utilize.

  • Deathlius has a bar on the screen that fills up with red and black as the raid progresses, called Wrath of Loss'end. As the bar fills, Deathlius gets stronger and unlocks additional abilities and mechanics, as well as making it harder to utilize the raid mechanic, and develops a more fearsome appearance.
    • On Rising difficulty, this bar cannot be reduced in any way.
  • The raid has an ability called Testament. It is a bar of yellow and green, and all players start at 50, in the middle. The more the raid slides to the left, the more "afraid" they are of Deathlius and will do less damage and healing, as well as receiving more damage and can be insta-killed by him. The more it slides to the right, the more "brave" the raid is towards Deathlius and will do more damage and healing, and be able to resist his instant-kill attacks. At 0 and 100, the players gain a buff called either Alone or Resolute that lasts for 15 seconds. If a player is Alone, they cannot damage Deathlius at all or use abilities and run in Fear from time to time. Only by entering a Beacon of Hope can they save themselves, restoring 50 Testament. If a player is Resolute, they can land critical hits on Deathlius easily, and cannot be insta-killed but be reduced to 1% of their current HP. All stats are increased upon being Resolute, and Deathlius can also cause players to lose it.
    • On Rising difficulty, the Beacon of Hope spawns only once. After Deathlius' Wrath of Loss'end fills up, he destroys the beacons and prevents them from being summoned again during the fight.
