Players must jump in to the portal and get ported to a platform behind the portal.

If you do this with 2 tanks, you must be able to balance the debuff on tank when that player enters the portal, and nuke the big add before tank on main platform dies of to many stacks from boss.


 

Positioning

Tanks
Tank boss on the outer edge of the platform.
After each collapsing world, run to the opposite side of the platform and tank her there, on the outer edge.
Never tank the boss close to the portal that is active (players may die when they come back, if the collapsing world is there).

Raid
Always stay at max range when collapsing world.
Always stay closer to boss when adds spawn in order to kill them more efficient.


 

Abilities and tactics

Main platform – Main boss

If no players are in the main platform, boss will kill all players (Catastrophic Implosion).


 

Reality Tear (tanks)

This is the tank swap debuff.
Boss puts a stacking debuff that does moderate physical damage every 2 sec for 30 sec.
When the debuff expires, it explodes and does dmg to all players. The more stacks the more damage.

Tactic: Reality Tear (tanks)

Tank swap at 2 stacks.


 

Collapsing world

Boss creates a big dark swirl on the ground that explodes after some sec.
This does high dmg to all players, but the further you are, the less dmg you take.
If you are inside the black swirl, you will be knocked off the platform.

Tactic: Collapsing world

Tanks
Tank boss on the edge of the platform so that the black swirl will be on a side of the platform.

Raid
Run away from the swirl, and run away even further so you take less dmg.


 

Felstorm Barrage

Boss creates a big fire line on the platform.
After some seconds, it explodes and does deadly dmg and a knockback.

Run away from it and if you are rooted by an add on that line, make sure that someone, or you, can help you away from the root (immunity, blink, freedom etc).
