Objectives and Boss Fights
Free Sylvari prisoners trapped in flowers
There are flowers throughout the entire dungeon with trapped Sylvari inside. If you open a flower you may say one of them but there is also a chance you will have have to fight a member of the Nightmare Court. If you kill them you will get a 2 minute boon that will heal you right before you die. Just make sure you don’t open too many at once and definitely don’t open them in the middle of a boss fight.
Defeat Boss Sariel
There is one thing you need to watch out for in this fight and that’s the knockdown. Once you get knocked down you cant escape so make sure you dodge and revive when necessary. You can also use a skill to defend against knockdowns if you have them.
Defeat Brangoire and his Living Nightmare adds
Brangoire bye himself does not do much damage but the Living Nightmare (green spiders) that he summons make up for that. If they explode either by themself or when you kill them they will release a poisonous cloud. Brangoire also does a fear which can make this fight even more difficult. This is a great time to use skills that will cure conditions allowing you to dodge the poison. You can also use control abilities on the spiders and kite them around the room while everyone keeps focusing down Brangoire as fast as you can.
Defeat risen Nightmare Hounds
There will be some Nightmare Hounds that you need to watch out for because there damage is very high. They have no ranged ability so kite them and DO NOT let them get within melee range.
Caderyn is not a difficult fight and he has one ability which seems to be for show and a laugh. You may get turned into a little cute kitten throughout the fight and the hounds will begin to chase you. Just kite them around the middle and kill a Nightmare Puppy to be turned back into your usual self.
Find essence to weaken Boss
During this part you will have to open up flowers which will drop essence. If you pick it up make sure you use it to weaken the bosses defense. Don’t just throw it which is very common among new comers. You could also clear and adds in the room to make the fight as easy as possible.
Defeat the Final Boss Faolain
This is a very tough fight and your group needs to work strategically to get through this. Faolain summons five illusions that you may recognize: Zojja, Logan, Rhytlock, Eir and a Golem. You need to destroy an illusion before you attempt to kill Faolain. She will try to rez the downed illusion and at this point you have to kite the other illusions and bring her health down 25% so the illusion will stay dead. Once her health is at 75% she will teleport back to the middle and you can down another illusion repeating the process until Faolain is Defeated. This boss is very difficult if everyone is not on the same page so make sure your group understands the mechanics to this fight.
