A couple of seconds after the fight commences 3 portals will appear as


shown on the map. About 5 seconds after that, beams will go from the
portals to Netherspite. These beams buff Netherspite when they hit him:
• Red: decreases damage taken by Netherspite
• Blue increases damage dealt by Netherspite
• Green heals Netherspite

It is important to interrupt these beams to prevent Netherspite from being


buffed. This can be achieved by standing between Netherspite and the
portals.

While stood in the beam, players receive a buff which stacks once per
second.
• Red: you have aggro, decreased damage taken, increased defense and
HP regen but (after an initial boost to HP) max HP decreases.
• Blue: you have increased spell damage dealt and healing received but
an increase in spell damage taken.
• Green: you have increased healing and mana regen, decreased spell
cost but decreased maximum mana pool.

The negative effects of the stacking buffs mean that you need to switch
the person blocking the beam once in a while (more of which later).

One of Netherpsite’s abilities is that he drops voids on the ground which


cause you damage if you stand in them (similar to the voidwalker boss in
Arcatraz).

If you are in the green or blue beam you should take evasive action by
moving towards either Netherspite or your portal. DO NOT SIDESTEP as
this will take you out of the beam and allow Netherspite to be buffed.

If you are in the red beam do not move if a void appears beneath you.
Firstly, the buff you have will prevent the void from doing any significant
damage;

Secondly, it is important that the tank does not move Netherspite from the
middle, as the beams will follow him, meaning that the other blockers are
no longer in the way
Phase 1:
Switching blockers

Blue and red blockers will need to switch midway through Phase 1 to
prevent the stacking debuff from becoming problematic. The switch
should occur before a blocker has received 25 stacks. Seeing as these
stack at the same rate, the tank (red) can call for the switch and blue can
switch at the same time (in theory reducing the amount of babble in TS…)

To switch, the player picking up the beam needs to stand between the
blocker and the portal. The old blocker is now free to move.

The switch of the red beam blockers needs to be fairly tight, to avoid
pulling Netherspite from the centre. It may be worth the new blocker
standing on the old blocker’s spot, who then moves.

The green beam blocker can last the entire phase without switching.
Some sources suggest that you use a non-caster to block the green
beam, thus making the decreased mana pool debuff irrelevant, however
Netherspite has a large base and a mêlée DPS green blocker may
inadvertently allow the beam to hit Netherspite. Besides, the phat heals
you deliver are too good to ignore.

Once a blocker has left the beam it cannot block a beam of that colour for
another 90 seconds, though they can block beams of another colour.

The non-blocking players should fulfil their usual role (healing or DPS).
The healers should be positioned so that they can cover the whole party
between them.

The players who are not due to block during this phase should stand in
attack range and range of healers, making sure they don’t accidentally
break the beam. It may be wise for caster DPS to stand near to the blue
beam in case they need to stand in for a designated blocker.

Moreover, non-blocking players are probably best off on the opposite side
to the red beam as if they accidentally break the red beam they will pull
aggro.

After around 1 minute of phase 1, the portals and beams will disappear,
Netherspite will turn a darker blue colour and look like he has been
banished. At this point everyone should run to the windows to get away
from his AOE attacks. At this point people should bandage and heal. The
healer who has been in the green beam will need an innervate, if there’s
one going.

Phase 2 lasts for 30 seconds. 5 seconds before the end of Phase 2 the
next designated red blocker needs to grab aggro on Netherspite.

At the end of phase 2 Netherspite goes back into Phase 1. The portals will
reappear in the same spots but the colour may have switched, so
blockers need to be on their toes. The phases cycle until Netherspite or
the party is dead.
Other pointers:
• Arguably the most important beam to block is the green one, so if at the start of the phase the designated
blocker is being slow at getting into place and you are nearby, you should block til they get there.
• Blue blockers should try to remain fairly close to Netherspite to remain within healing range. This means that
following a blue beam switch, the new blocker should move in.
