Taedal's Tower Floor 17 - Unbreakable Shield of Cooperation

Abilities & Mechanics

When you enter the floor you will immediately notice there is an NPC called the Adventurer standing on the edge of the arena. When you spawn in you need to run to the NPC and get inside of the shielded area. Make sure you stay within the shield until the boss has landed. When the boss lands if you’re not in the shield you will take a significant amount of damage before the fight begins.

Once the boss has entered the arena you can safely leave the shielded area and begin dealing damage to the Chaos Archwizard. During the fight try to stay close to the NPC. At times you will need to position yourself between the NPC and the boss in order to keep the NPC alive. If he dies, you will not be able to make it to his shield during the Carousal of Death and will die.

The boss stays in the center of the arena for the duration of the fight, but casts some strong AoE abilities that you need to be aware of.

Abilities

  • Energy Blast – The boss will shoot a beam of blue energy in a straight line in your direction. He will rotate in a circular motion following you with the beam. The beam stretches from him to the edge of the arena. You can not block this ability. However, it is fairly easy to sidestep and get out of. When this ability happens don’t stand in it.
  • Teleport – The boss will cast a purple circle on the ground. If you are hit by it you will be teleported to the edge of the arena and will be stunned.
  • Ground Explosion – The Chaos Archwizard will create a shockwave of energy that covers the entire arena. The only way to avoid damage is by blocking. Make sure you pay attention to the purple block circle in order to negate the damage.
  • Target NPC – Right after the ground explosion ability the boss will target the NPC with a ranged attack. The NPC can not block or move out of the way of the ability. If he gets hit by it he will take significant damage. It only takes 2 to 3 hits of this ability to kill the NPC. You do not want the NPC to die because you need his shield for the Carousal of Death ability. In order to prevent the NPC from taking damage you need to position yourself between the boss and the NPC. Then, you will need to perform a block just as you would for a purple circle perfect block.

  • Carousal of Death – The Chaos Archwizard will fill up the center of the arena with a deadly purple AoE. From that AoE there will be 4 branches that rotate around the edge of the arena. When this happens you will need to immediately run around the room, jumping over the branches as they move, and get to the NPC. You must make it to the NPC quickly to be shielded before the ability is over or you will die.
