Vertus Guide

Vertus is the fourth and last Guardian Boss in Raid Level 1. This fight is split into three phases and cannot be considered easy, especially for people who just hit item level 420. During encounters the boss uses a combination of deadly attacks and hard crowd controls. For less tanky players being grabbed by Vertus can result in quick but spectacular death. As mentioned before, the boss has three phases. Fight starts at phase one and the only difference between phase one and phase two is that boss enrages. Vertus can transition into phase two when he gets staggered, after his first escape or randomly during the fight. Phase three starts at 25% boss HP and adds extra abilities. Additionally during the third phase the boss gets stronger dealing more damage with faster attacks. There is a possibility to transition from phase one to phase three by cutting off his tail but it’s NOT recommended due to the fact it increases encounter difficulty.
