Valtan Phase 1 Legion Raid Guide

Valtan Phase 1 Introduction

Valtan Phase 1 is a TIER 3 Legion Raid and you need to be at least 1415(Normal) or 1445(Hard) Item Level to enter this Raid. This dungeon drops Tier 3 Accessories, Ability Stones, Engraving Books, Cards and materials to craft the sets listed below.

  • Demon Beast Strength One-Handed Sword
  • Betrayal Instinct One-Handed Sword
  • Charming Instinct One-Handed Sword
  • Destructive Grasp One-Handed Sword
  • Dominion Fang One-Handed Sword
  • Earth's Entropy One-Handed Sword
  • Covetous Whisper One-Handed Sword
  • Nightmare Flower One-Handed Sword
  • Poem of Salvation One-Handed Sword
  • Shrieking Hallucination One-Handed Sword
  • Swamp of Yearning One-Handed Sword

After clearing the dungeon, you can pay gold to get additional loot. The recommended Combat Items are HP Potion, Panacea, Sacred Charm and Dark Grenade or Whirlwind Grenade.

This is the first Legion Raid which allows the usage of Sidereal skills to deal additional damage or to provide protection. On top of that, you can claim the Phase 1 rewards after clearing and continue at a later time with Phase 2 and new party members. Since this is the first Legion Raid, you have to put in more effort and coordination to survive.

Disclaimer: In this guide, we will only focus on the important core & general patterns of the boss. Basic attacks of him, which are easy to predict or deal low damage, won't be explained in detail.

It is important to make sure that everyone in the raid group is aware of the boss and coop mechanics. Additionally, item level is not as significant as having good Engravings and Combat Stat distribution as these provide the most damage increase which shorten the duration of the battle. A shorter battle leads to less damage taken and less consumable used.

This guide assumes that you are familiar with the recommended Raid Build for your class.

If you have cleared Phase 1, follow the Valtan Phase 2 Guide, to clear the next Phase.
