The Colossus, Melothat
A Slow Walk on a Long Bridge
Return to Dungeon Page
Previous Boss – Dimensional Arachnid
This fight is an interesting timer-event, taking place along a bridge. While it has elements of a DPS race, in that if you fail to complete the encounter by the end of Melthat’s walk, it’s actually more about keeping a measured DPS pace than an out and out race.
The First Gate
The Second Gate
About the same distance across the bridge as during the prior stage is a new gate. This gate is guarded by a single Orochi elite. You can do one of two things here:
1. Burn down the Orochi and the gate and then return to Malothet
2. Burn down the gate and have a tank carry the Orochi elite through the remaining encounter.
As Malothet approaches the second gate, his adds begin joining the fray. They do not have many hitpoints, but they can dish out a lot of damage to low defense players and can eventually overwhelm a tank. Have DPS switch and drop them each time they approach.
Second Warning – If you DPS too quickly, Melothat will glow red and then charge forwards towards the gate. So, keep a slow, but steady pace.
The Final Walk
Break for adds, though, they can easily cause an accidental wipe!
