Skolex, the Insatiable Ravener
With the Sepulcher of the First Ones vunerable, devourers flood in to feed their hunger. Among these beasts is the ravenous Skolex. As the great worm consumes vast amounts of ephemra, the sepulcher is thrown out of balance and threatens to collapse onto itself.
This is a single plase encounter where you are aiming to not be overwhelmed by Empemera Dust stacks and avoiding all of the mechanics. In order to reset your Empemera Dust stacks the ENTIRE RAID must stack together which will force the boss to cast Ravening Burrow and move to your location, if you are INSIDE this knockback your stacks will be removed.
The basic flow of the fight is:
Tank Combo> Retch > Tank Combo >Retch >Raid Stacks to Move Boss > Soak the boss hit (Repeat)
Dust Blast - The furthest 3 players (and all players within 10 yards of them) are hit with this on each hit of the Tank Combo.
Devouring Blood - Skolex will fire bolts on melee player locations. Failure to move will apply a DoT and reduce your Haste by 33%!
Retch - Targets a random ranged player and make them the centre of this cone. Move out of it when it spawns to pre-designated locations.
Ravening Burrow - When all players (including Melee DPS & Tanks) are stacked together Skolex will burrow underground and reemerge at this location. Getting hit by the boss reemerging removes all Empemera Dust stacks.
Wormhole Jaws - Stack on your co-tank unless there's a Tank Combo happening. If there is no other player within 10 yards the tank will be hit twice.
If you Dodge/Parry the attack, Wormhole Jaws will not be triggered.
Rend - Big stacking Bleed.
