Two tanks are required for this fight. The tanks are whoever pick up the runes in front of the arena and gains (SAK) as their Special Action Key. The effect is applied to both tanks. These players also have a purple border around their icons in the squad view and the current fixation has a large purple icon above their head.

Using makes the tank the current fixation and start gaining stacks of (Stacks). This increases their damage taken by 10% per stack, beginning at 6 seconds into the fight and stacking one every 12 seconds. Swap tanks once the fixated player reaches 3-4 stacks (about 30-40 seconds into the fight) by having the other tank use . When fixate is swapped to the other tank, the stacks disappear after 30 seconds, at which point the player should take fixate from the other tank. Continue swapping fixate throughout the fight, as too many stacks can result in a fixated player going repeatedly.

After the initial wall, walls spawn approximately every 18 seconds from 100% to 66%, 16 seconds from 66% to 33%, and 13 seconds thereafter. Every other [gw2:48500:skill] (Big Pizza) will make all active disappear.

(Scythe) - A moving, circular AoE that damages and corrupts all boons. Appears 20 seconds into the fight and spawns every 30 seconds. There can be up to 4 scythes at a time. They move in a straight line and cannot be killed.

This attack can be blocked.

Either cleave down the (Wurms) while DPSing , or let a with [gw2:10606:skill] take care of it. They hurl towards players and deal a moderate to high amount of damage.

Common Mistakes and Tips
