The Tarragrue

We advise you to use the following talents against The Tarragrue.

We advise you to use the following Legendary against The Tarragrue: Slick Ice Icon Slick Ice.

There are three subsets of Anima powers for this fight. DPS picks, utility picks, and "we are literally planning the raid around you" picks.

DPS picks, in rough order of DPS:

  1. Elethium Weights Icon Elethium Weights
  2. Huddled Carvings Icon Huddled Carvings, if you can maintain the buff.
  3. Potent Acid Gland Icon Potent Acid Gland
  4. Tremorbeast Heart Icon Tremorbeast Heart
  5. Either Erratic Howler Icon Erratic Howler or Heart-Seeking Fang Icon Heart-Seeking Fang if you can stand in melee range.
  6. Obleron Venom Icon Obleron Venom
  7. Any non-Mastery Obleron powers.

Utility picks will mostly be Ever-Beating Heart Icon Ever-Beating Heart if no one has taken it, and you have that job. Disembodied Mystic Hands Icon Disembodied Mystic Hands if you have no Enrage dispels. Oddly Intangible Key Icon Oddly Intangible Key can be fun for ignoring Hungering Mist Icon Hungering Mist mechanic entirely.

The last set are mechanics that are either incredibly dangerous, or require raid-wide cooperation. Lumbering Form Icon Lumbering Form is likely the highest DPS gain out of the bunch, but you knock people around during Hungering Mist Icon Hungering Mist and it will kill them. Consider pairing it with Oddly Intangible Key Icon Oddly Intangible Key, and never stacking on anyone. Ten of Towers Icon Ten of Towers is also potentially interesting, except if you die. Given it stuns the boss as well, the only danger is missing a soak or dying during Hungering Mist. The last is Twisted Samophlange Icon Twisted Samophlange. This is incredibly powerful to other people, but not to the person who picked it. If you can layer a lot of them in the group, this is the best pick, but it requires luck to get it on everyone, and staying mostly stacked to make sure everyone gets the buff.

Outside of Anima powers, there is not much to this boss. Ice Block Icon Ice Block can be used to soak just about every mechanic if needed.

For more information, please refer to our The Tarragrue guide.
