Boss Attacks Tips
  • Teleport: Teleports to a random location on the stage.
  • It is recommended to gather in the lower left corner, as the Dream Eater will more frequently teleport there.
  • The Dream Eater can be attacked while teleporting.
  • Slash: Swings his arms once or twice. Each hit will inflict  Leg InjuryLeg Injury and launch players quite far away.
  • This is the boss' most frequent attack. Because of this, using skills or items that provide  Super ArmorSuper Armor are recommended to avoid being launched away.
  • Spinning Slash: Leaps forward, spinning and inflicting moderate damage to any players hit.
  • Slice: Casts a large shockwave that hits either the top half or the bottom half of the map, dealing heavy damage to any players hit.
  • When the attack indicator appears, there is about 2 seconds before the attack goes off.
  • The bottom half shockwave has a hitbox that is slightly larger than what its visuals may imply. If possible, it is recommended to remain in the air above the upper platform.
  • Black Storm: Teleports to the middle of the arena, then casts three storms of demonic energy that instantly kill any players hit. Two storms will spawn on the edges of the map, and one large storm will spawn in the middle of the map.
  • The storms on the edges will always activate first, and the middle storm will activate shortly afterwards. To avoid being hit, players must initially wait inside the middle storm. Once the storms on the edges begin to dissipate (indicated by the storms turning black), players must run to the edge of the map before the middle storm activates.
  • After spawning the storms, the Dream Eater will continue to move and attack as usual. Be especially cautious to avoid being hit by Slash and launched in an undesirable direction.
  • Link Up: Marks two random players with connected circle sigils, and the remaining two players with connected square sigils. After a certain amount of time, if certain conditions are not fulfilled, the sigils will explode, instantly killing marked players and any players nearby.
  • The players marked with the circle sigils must stay close to each other. If they are too far apart, the sigil and tether will turn red.
  • The players marked with the square sigils must stay away from each other. If they are too close, the sigil and tether will turn red.
  • It is recommended for players to gather in the bottom left corner of the stage, if not there already. One player marked with the square sigil (usually the weaker DPS or support character) should move to the far right of the stage while the rest of the party continue attacking Dream Eater.
    • Take care to avoid being hit by Slash and launched in an undesirable direction, as it can result in a total party kill during this mechanic.
  • Shadow Clones: Teleports to the central platform and spawns four shadow clones randomly on the map. Each shadow clone will tether to a random player, and after roughly 4 seconds, will dash in the direction of the tether, dealing heavy damage on contact.
  • Player must position themselves such that the Dream Eater boss is in between them and their tethered shadow clone. This will cause the shadow to dash into Dream Eater.
  • If all 4 clones hit Dream Eater, he will enter a groggy state for about 3 seconds, and all  ErosionErosion debuffs will be removed.
  • Players should take caution to not stand too close to Dream Eater, as they may get hit by the shadow clone contact explosion.
  • Space Division: Prepares himself to launch a series of fatal slashes. These slashes deal heavy damage and players who are hit will have their screens darkened for a few seconds.
  • The slashes will occur roughly 3 seconds after the initial warning lines appear.
  • If Dream Eater's HP is below 150 bars, he will cast this attack twice in a row.
  • In most of the slash patterns, the bottom right corner will be safe.
  • Vasili: Incarcer, Torta... What are you.
  • Ciel: Is it already consumed by the demonic energy of abyss...
  • Vasili: What's this? Prey is talking? Who are you, telling me wh
  • Add: ... He lost all sense of decorum along with his head.
