Chromanium Guardian Raid Guide

Chromanium Introduction

Chromanium is the first Guardian of Raid Level 2 and you need to be at least 460 Item Level to enter this Guardian Raid. This Guardian drops Tier 1 Accessories, Upgrade Materials and Ability Stones as well as rare drops including Runes, Engraving Books and Cards. It takes 10% more damage from Fire Element skills and the recommended Combat Items are: HP Potion, Corrosive Bomb or Destruction Bomb, Pheromone Bomb and Flare.

This Guardian is the first one with a mandatory Part Destruction mechanic. This means that a part of the Guardian must be destroyed to progress through the phases. In this case Chromanium's hard shell reduces all damage taken until it's destroyed. To destroy the shell use skills and Battle Items with a Weak Point attribute. You can speed up this process by using the Corrosive Bomb and Destruction Bomb but make sure to not waste your awakening skills until the shell is broken.

Aside from this new Part Destruction mechanic, Chromanium is a slow guardian with mostly frontal attacks. This gives you enough time to focus on back attack damage and dodging during the 3 phase fight. Phase 1 lasts until you break the shell. Once the shell is broken, Phase 2 starts and additional skills are added to the attack pool. Chormanium enters Phase 3 around 20-30% HP. During this phase, a few skills are modified and amplified, but nothing too exciting happens.

This Guardian guide assumes you know the basics of a Guardian Raid. Check out the General Raid Guide to learn more.


Special Interactions & Patterns

Counterable Frontal Slam

Shell Break

Counterable Frontal Slam

Counter attack is possible during the Charge attack pattern. At the start of this attack animation, the Guardian glows blue. The player has a short window to cast a skill with a Counter Attack affix while standing in front of the Guardian. If you manage to pull this off fast enough, the Guardian's attack will be interrupted and staggered for a few seconds. This gives you and your team a short window to use buffs and deal additional damage.

The Guardian lifts its front feet and slams them to the ground, sending out a forward shock wave. The shock wave deals low damage and knocks up the player.
