Ready for your next face-to-face meeting with Vykas? Vyka’s Legion Raid Phase 2 has no shortage of player positions and boss mechanics to remember. To save you from studying, scroll down for the detailed walkthrough for the simplified Vykas Legion raid cheat sheet to keep by your side during battle.
If you need help with Vykas Phase 1 instead, we have a walkthrough and cheat sheet for that too.
Around the health bar 144, Vykas will use it rotary laser Attack. She initiates this attack again around the 90 HP bar and possibly at other random times. During this attack, Vykas directs a purple laser at each player. It will explode but not kill you. However, if you stand near another player and take a double hit, the raid may be over for you. Players can move to the edge of the map while running at normal speed to keep a certain distance between explosions.
At HP take bar 120 pattern one positions (shown in the diagram above). The boss randomly spawns three shadow clones at 3 a.m., 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. One has folded wings, another has opened wings, and the third has only one folded wing. The five players in the middle must each use up an orb, marking them with either a red or purple mark. Which marker – either red or purple – appears on most players determines the order in which they must visit the shadow clones in order to avoid the incoming shockwaves. Here is the correct order for each color:
- Three purple icons (purple majority): no wings raised → one wing raised → both wings raised
- Three red icons (red majority): both wings raised → one wing raised → no wings raised
When the boss is down to HP Bar 65, he will summon the three shadow clones again. Take off the positions pattern two (see diagram above). Each clone shadow unleashes five shockwaves, and your task is to remember which ones are black and which ones are red. The shadow clones will then continue shooting balls at the boss and you have to intercept the blacks. If your position has two black balls, each of the two group members must intercept one of them. If there are three, one of the “reserve” players must pick up the third. It’s best to decide on a quick method of communication before starting the Legion raid (e.g. shouting “7-4”, which means the fourth orb of the seven o’clock clone has to be intercepted).
Start of battle: assign positions (see diagram).
- Pattern one (HP bar X120): Five players in the center (cross formation), three on the outer edge at 3, 7, and 11 o’clock.
- Pattern two (X65): Two players at 3, 7 and 11 o’clock, plus two spares.
X144: rotating laser. Walk clockwise, edge of map.
X120: Shadow clones at 3am, 7am and 11am. Absorb five bullets in the center.
- Purple Majority: 0 wing → 1 wing → 2 wing.
- Red Majority: 2 wings → 1 wing → 0 wings.
X90: Like X144, rotating laser.
X65: Shadow Clones (3, 7 and 11 o’clock) Orb Interception. Note the shock wave colors (red or black).
- Intercept black balls.
- Substitutes help out.
