Vykas Phase 2 Introduction
Vykas Phase 2 is a TIER 3 Legion Raid and you need to be at least 1430 (Normal) or 1460 (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.
After clearing the dungeon, you can pay gold to get additional loot. The recommended Combat Items are Elemental HP Potion, Time Stop Potion and Swiftness Robe.
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.

Once you have read through the detailed description of the main patterns, use the “cheat sheet” during the raid.
In each Legion Raid, once the bar on the top left is full, the raid lead has can activate the Sidereal skills to summon powerful allies. The bar fills up over time or gets a boost after specific patterns and interactions, like a Counter Attack. Using the Sidereal skills at the proper time can be a game changer.
If the raid lead dies, you can pass the party lead to another member to grant that person the access to use the Sidereal skills.
There are 2 patterns, which are counterable. Since a successful counter gives you time to deal uninterrupted damage, you should try to counter her as much as possible.
Counter 1: The boss targets a player and shoots multiple purple discs towards that player. You can counter her right after she shoots the last disc.
Counter 2: A quick dash attack, which can be countered if you react fast enough. Even if you miss the first counter, there is a high chance that Vykas performs the same attack once more. So be ready to counter the second dash.
