Vykas Phase 3 Legion Raid Guide

Vykas Phase 3 Introduction

Vykas Phase 3 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.

  • Demon Beast Strength One-Handed Sword
  • Betrayal Instinct One-Handed Sword
  • Charming Instinct 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 Elemental HP Potion, Time Stop Potion, Whirlwind Grenade and Sleep Bomb.

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.
