Lore

Atziri was the last queen of the Vaal civilization. She was extremely vain and held court in a room lined with mirrors. Atziri wished for eternal youth, inspired by the serial killer Zerphi living 168 years with a young body, and her thaumaturgist Doryani sacrificed countless victims trying to achieve this. Destroyed by the Cataclysm, she still lingers in a nightmare realm that is leaking corruption back into the land of Wraeclast.[1]

Strategy

Atziri is one of the most challenging bosses in the game. Strong well rounded defenses are an absolute must. Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "ruby flask"., Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "topaz flask". and quick movement skills are recommended.

Phase 1

Initially, Atziri is alone. She cannot be frozen, stunned or knocked back and resists elemental damage. Moreover, she reflects curses, meaning the player gets cursed as well. To counter this it can help to get flasks with the suffix "of Warding" because it removes all curses from the player and grants temporary curse immunity. Her attacks are:

  • An arc of spears that apply bleed. As a melee or close range attacker you'll probably have to tank this one. The damage from the puncture is not too high. This attack is much faster in the the Alluring Abyss version.
  • A single Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "flameblast". with short channeling. This is not deadly with Ruby Flask but can take a large chunk of your health and finish you with a follow up skill if you don't recover quickly. This spell has 20% increased radius in the Alluring Abyss version.
  • Multiple randomly placed empowered Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "flameblast". with a massive AoE radius. This spell penetrates 8% percent Fire Resistance (10% in the the Alluring Abyss version). This spell can be withstood with a large effective HP Pool and Ruby Flask + any other forms of increasing maximum fire resist. This quantity of flameblasts increases for every additional player in the instance. This skill can easily kill most characters in a single hit and should be avoided with a movement skill at all costs.
  • A Chain of randomly placed Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "storm call".s dealing lightning damage. Each storm call is marked with an orange spell circle and explodes after 3 seconds of being placed, in quick succession. The duration of storm calls placed exceeds 3 seconds, so this means that new storm calls are casted amidst the starting chain of explosions.
  • A Chain of randomly placed empowered Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "storm call".s dealing lightning damage. Each storm call is marked with a thick yellow circle and a wider thin yellow line. The thin yellow exterior line is the true radius of the spell. This spell behaves the same as the orange storm call but deals 50% more damage. This spell should be absolutely avoided and Topaz Flask may be required as a safe measure.

Phase 2

Atziri shields herself, preventing her from taking damage. She summons minions that walk towards her and heal her when they reach her. The minions will not attack the player. Atziri's energy shield will recharge while shielding. The best way keep the minions from healing her is to stand as close to Atziri as possible and use an Area of Effect skill to clear the minions as fast as possible. This is by far the safest phase and a good time for refilling flasks, regenerating life, recharging energy shield or to curse Atziri (don't forget to remove the reflect).

Atziri can still draw aggression of minions such as Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "summon raging spirit". and alternative methods may need to be used to kill all her summons before they reach her.

Phase 3

Atziri summons four copies of herself. This phase happens at fixed intervals: only when she loses a quarter of her life (so at 75%, 50% and 25%). If the minions heal her back to one of those life levels, she will not do this phase again. Atziri is not targetable in this form. One of the four copies needs to be defeated first:

  • One holds a spear in her hand that fires a single projectile at the player; dealing bleeding damage over time.
  • One has fire on her hand and casts a single Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "flameblast". on top of the player's current location (Similar to first form's single flameblast).
  • One has lightning on her hand and casts a chain of randomly placed Module Error: Item link: No results found for search parameter "storm call"..
  • One has a mirror and reflects a high amount of damage. Attacking this with direct damage is fatal and is only an option for characters that deal indirect damage.

The spear has very poor aim and a moderate amount of damage. As long as the bleed is under control, the skill is largely ignored. Because the flameblast is always cast on top of the player (with the same cast time and delay), it is essential for players to get used to the rhythm of each cast. Melee players, in particular, can draw out her flameblast in a random location and attack one of Atziri copies during the cast time and delay.
