Strategy

Reflective Aura.jpg

The mob will most likely require more than one visit to conquer. The initial visits will be used for farming. Should you fail at killing the mob you will have to farm once again.

Required tasks (explained later)
1) Prevent AoEs
2) CURE poison (Dedicated Noxious Remedy or better) - everyone should bring a lot (100 per) or stay home.
3) Complete your objective in 15 minutes or die from AoE.
4) If attempting kill, then no deaths!!

Trash mobs
The trash mobs drop fish suits. They should be given to the parties that can do HUGE spike AoE damage for farming runs. The key here is repetitive spike damage. The suits are used to farm and later kill Leviathan. Make sure to kill the last trash mob by the entrance or feel the wrath of the tentacles.

Trash mobs repop every 2 days therefore you can return to continue your adventure.

Farming
When setting up to farm your main objective is to acquire as many Volatile fluids as possible. Please don't buy off the market as their are two different fluids and those from Halls of Fate DO NOT WORK here.

To acquire fluids members must be "eaten" by Leviathan. The fish suits off of the trash must be worn by a party member to enter and kill mobs within his belly. The fluids are looted from the mobs. It is recommended the bare bones minimum fluid count to attempt a kill is 50. Yes - we know you uber folks don't need that many but then why are you reading this strategy?

Once you have been in the encounter for 15 minutes OR once your suits are gone you die from AoE.

Preventing AoEs
If you do not continue to suit and send people into the stomach the mob will begin to AoE and you will wipe therefore you must keep someone "suited up" in the water waiting to be eaten at all times. Once the suits are gone take the wipe and come back to fight another day. NOTE!! AoEs are extra bad because an AoE can ruin armor at a rate of 10-20% per AoE. (hope you have repair bots!!)

Killing the Leviathan
Once again suits and fluids are required. Suits for this attempt are given to anyone that has huge spell crit as this boosts the damage done to the mob. Kill the trash and gather the suits; once again last trash should be killed by the entrance or the rear corridor to prevent tentacle damage. You can get to the rear by staying out of the water and running around the right hand side. Please note the globe North of the mob.

Suit your team up and send them in like before but instead of killing mobs they focus on throwing the fluids (as quickly as possible). If they are attacked have them kill the attackers to prevent death and healing Leviathan.

Apply "The Greenmist Orb" to the globe at 20% (please read excerpt below on the orb).The orb will disappear from inventory onced used.

Continue with suits and fluids until mob is dead.

Success!!!


Additional info on "The Greenmist Orb"
There has been a lot of questions about how the orb is used within the zone.

This zone requires "The Greenmist Orb" (the purple one) not to be confused by the "Green Mist Orb" (the green one) for the epic weapon update.

The person with the orb must be at the globe located on the North side BEFORE the mob hits 20%. The globe will become activated and is clickable at the same time as the green message appears on the screen. Click and activate the globe quickly or the opportunity is lost.

If you clicked on it successfully you will get another green message at later time indicating that the orb has been absorbed. If you failed the raid party will quickly know because the mob will AoE at 1% and kill all.

The orb does not need to be "dropped" into the globe nor does the item get clicked within the inventory or on the hotbar.
