Lihuvim, Principal Architect
With great care, Lihuvim weaves ephemera into being in accordance with the hallowed will of the First Ones. Now this process is threatened as mawsworn forces seek to claim this power.
Boss cycles through phases every ~1:40
There has been an announced change to this. This will be updated once there is data.
P1: Spawns Unstable Motes on players which you want to put in areas you dont intend to use again or you can blow them up.
P2: Pick an add on the side of the room and kill it as a group. If your raid DPS is very high (once more gear has been obtained) you can opt to split the raid and defeat two.
Unstable Mote - Place away from raid, dont stand in as you walk away.
Protoform Cascade - Either stand in or out, not on it.
Cosmic Shift - Dont get pushed into stars/puddles.
[Heroic/Mythic] Resonance - Tank Combo. Taunt every time your co-tank gets a circle around them. The taunts need to be quick!
When Lihuvim reaches 100 energy the boss will move to the middle and start to cast Synthesize.
During each of these intermissions you will need to kill stand in the highlighted area around the Automa you intend to kill as this will reduce your damage taken by 50% on Normal and 20% on Heroic.
Defating an Automa before it activates will remove all Protoform Radiance stacks from you allowing you to not get 1 shot by pretty much any mechanic.
- Fixates a player and deals increasing damage the longer its alive
- When it dies it will cast Detonation
- Detonation knocks all players within 40 yards away
- Spawns a Sentry every 20 seconds
- The sentries will deal damage to random raid members
- When this add is in range of a player it will cast Degenerate
- Degenerate cannot be interrupted but the a stun can stop the cast
- These adds can be gripped and knocked to group them together for AoE
[Heroic] Defense Matrix
- Applies a buff which reduces damage taken by the boss and all adds by 50%
- Focus this add down first to remove the damage reduction
The main theme of destroying Automa is that you ALWAYS want to defeat an Acquisitons Automa as the ability from it is the most annoying.

Vengeance Demon Hunter
Sigil of Chains can be used to group Degeneration Automa together for more efficient AoE.
[Heroic] Ardent Defender is available for one of the tank combos in each Phase. For the other combo you can rotate between Guardian of Ancient Kings, using a trinket or taking the Kinetic part of the combo.
Kinetic Resonance can be blocked.
Stampeding Roar is useful to get players either to the add in the intermissions or back to boss after you've killed the add.
