Halkias, the Sin-Stained Goliath

  • Spawn the boss by killing the 3 Shards of Halkias around the starting area.
  • Do not stand on the tank (Crumbling Slam Icon Crumbling Slam).
  • Quickly dodge the red swirly (Heave Debris Icon Heave Debris).
  • Immediately dispel the fear that goes on a random DPS (Sinlight Visions Icon Sinlight Visions).
  • Dodge the rotating cross-pattern laser (Refracted Sinlight Icon Refracted Sinlight). Keep in mind that it can change direction randomly.
  • On Mythic, stay inside the boss's red circle in order to be immune to the fear (Light of Atonement Icon Light of Atonement).

  • Spawn the boss by attempting to open the door at the top of the stairs.
  • Quickly dodge the red swirly on the ground (Blood Torrent Icon Blood Torrent).
  • Gather the adds and kill them near each other (Stone Call Icon Stone Call).
  • The player that gets the Curse of Stone Icon Curse of Stone will also get a brown circle around them, and they should quickly move to the dead adds so that the boss will destroy them and prevent them from reviving (Stone Shattering Leap Icon Stone Shattering Leap).
  • On Mythic, all players get the curse, but still only one player gets the brown circle. Also, the adds now have a cast that should be interrupted (Villainous Bolt Icon Villainous Bolt).

High Adjudicator Aleez

  • Prioritize interrupting Volley of Power Icon Volley of Power over Bolt of Power Icon Bolt of Power.
  • If fixated by the add spawn, bring it to one of the red vessels in the area to have it despawn (Vessel of Atonement Icon Vessel of Atonement).
  • If not fixated, stay away from the add (Pulse from Beyond Icon Pulse from Beyond).
  • Dodge the big orange swirlies (Anima Fountain Icon Anima Fountain).

Lord Chamberlain

  • Dodge the statue thrown around by the boss, indicated by a red arrow on the ground (Telekinetic Toss Icon Telekinetic Toss).
  • Dodge the frontal cone that is cast in a random direction (Unleashed Suffering Icon Unleashed Suffering).
  • Keep the tank alive through the 18 second ramping DoT (Stigma of Pride Icon Stigma of Pride).
  • Dodge all four statues after the boss teleports to the middle of the room.
  • The tank should stand between the red glowing statue and the boss when he is casting Ritual of Woe Icon Ritual of Woe.
  • On Mythic, the boss casts Ritual of Woe Icon Ritual of Woe on all of the statues at once, so four players need to intercept the beams.
