Information

  • You will get a frenzy brand debuff that stacks every time you get hit by Calventus’ magic attacks. It reduces armor by 10% with each stack.
  • The boss has two phases and one enrage phase. When the boss teleports away, he starts his second phase. The next phase includes all attacks from the previous phase. The enrage phase both together.
  • Stagger the boss when enraged to make him go back to phase 2.
  • It is recommended to take battle items within the fight that can remove the frenzy brand debuff like Panacea or Sacred Charm.
  • It is recommended to use some form of shield penetration engraving to clear his orb phase faster, since they have a large shield.

Sky Drop

Flies up into the air before landing back down on a target.

Backstep (Upgraded)

Shadow Ball (Enraged)

Arches up and uses a huge shadow ball attack.

Orbs

The boss periodically summons orbs in phase 2, which must be destroyed in time before they reach the boss. If they reach the boss, they will be absorbed and his attack speed and strength will be increased. He also gets new attack patterns.

Enrage

If the boss absorbs 4-5 orbs he becomes enraged. He will cast a large AoE around him which signals the start of the enrage phase. Avoid it.

Stationary Orbs

When enraged the boss will still call down orbs, but these orbs are grayish in color and don’t move to the boss. Moving close to these orbs will make the orbs move toward you and explode while they also give you the frenzy brand debuff.
