    Default Akylios: First Look (Teaser Video)

    Lots of people have been wanting to see Akylios, so here ya go. :P

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4IeKpxpkKI

    This is the 3rd phase. The 1st and 2nd phases aren't pushovers, but even once you've mastered them they're very time consuming, which makes it difficult to learn and progress on the 3rd phase.

    The 3 people dead half-way thru the video all died to a dumb port bug as well, hopefully they'll fix that soon. Pretty ridiculous (but awesome) fight.

    (And we're still recruiting. Mostly only looking for 400 hit/focus geared players that can prove to us they were the top player of their previous guild.)

    Thumbs up

    Wow, 400 hit and focus required for akylios, that's insane, why the large jump from 300 to 400? I'm looking forward to getting into HK for myself and progressing in there. Good luck with akylios and I will check the video out when I get home, hope it's a fun fight.

    Think giant octopus vs boat in any of those b-list sci-fi movies. That rock is our boat.

    Oh yeah, and he shoots laser beams out of his eyes.

    He's mostly taking the Hit Points away from the players in the raid. And also doing a bunch of things to prevent said people from preventing this from happening ;)

    Maximation is also recruiting btw. This is a demanding encounter instance, even the best guilds have people drop. So yeah, get in and join the fun. Good luck, Voodoo.

    Bricks are being shat.

    What do those suffocating orbs do, the ones that Jornaru throw at people? I'm guessing some kind of debuff.

    Glad you made this video though, I don't think I'm going to be HK ready anytime soon.

    3rd phase at 85% health?

    that is a pretty good estimate on the duration of this encounter, it takes about 8-10 min to hit p3 depending on ur raid dps/composition.

    What do you think about the near future. Several of guilds are at grug / king maybe a week to a month from being on akylios.
