    Default Arisen Arak: Bugs

    So we've been trying to progress on Arisen Arak because we have nothing else left to do. Wouldn't be too bad if the fight worked properly.

    Over the last several weeks we've encountered various bugs, mainly the mini bosses not spawning properly. As far as we're aware the mini bosses are to spawn in the order that we kill them in. Our first week of progression we got the boss to 85% and the mini's did not spawn at all. The boss did no mechanics and the only adds spawning were the Dream and Terror. This happened every single pull and you can see the bug in action here.

    The following week it was fine with just minor bugs and we got him down past the first two mini bosses. Then comes this week where he spawned Lady Justice at 85% and no other bosses went straight to the Shadow God's Wrath cast. Lady Justice however was the last boss we killed. We should have had Enigma, Envy, Genesis then Lady Justice. Instead we got Justice first.

    How are guilds suppose to progress when bosses are still this buggy.

    Slightly different issue here Waseem . In fixing the 'you can soft reset the instance and kill it again' bug, they've accidentally 'broken' Hard Mode.

    Right now as of this moment, you cannot activate Arisen Arak Hard Mode. The orb is missing too and that's why Lady Justice is appearing first for you. I have let Ocho know, who has said the team is investigating.

    There are differences between Normal / Hard Mode.

    Hard Mode (whether intended or not) is actually easier than normal mode. The only difference being the mini boss appearances are static, with Lady Justice spawning last. With part of the platform missing, apparently it's harder than normal mode seeing as you can't collect as many orbs.

    The whole 'order of the mini bosses is the order of the bosses you kill' has never worked FYI. To get the achievements you just have to get lucky with the mini boss spawns.

    With Normal Mode (again, is what the fight is stuck on this week), you can get either Lady Justice or Enigma as first mini boss. With Envy following Dark Genesis last.

    Keep it up with the progression, once you have Enigma killed the rest of the fight is a breeze. If you need any tips feel free to send me a PM / hop onto the EU cluster and /w me.

    Would be great for more guilds to kill this prior to 4.0!

    The problem was that no other bosses were spawning. We don't really care what order they spawn in as long as they spawn. We could easily kill it as it is but we're trying to do it legit and for that we need the mini's to actually spawn.

    Also would be nice if we could go straight to AA rather than waste time on earlier bosses as we don't need any gear from them anymore. This would also help other guilds that actually want to kill him before 4.0.

    Like after killing Pagura and Arak Jr we would just have to do the 10min event to unlock him and go straight to him. This would allow us to spend more time on him rather than trash bosses.

    Simply because the bosses are set and you know what is coming next (although we had a nasty surprise this week with the bug!). Having to do Lady Justice with part of a platform missing isn't difficult at all.

    This would be awesome. Like back in original HK when you could go up to Akylios without killing the upstairs bosses.

    I don't see why this shouldn't be possible, especially as the miniboss order isn't actually working.

    Excuse the double post

    * Arisen Arak Fixed an issue where Arisen Arak would not initialize hard mode even though all criteria was met.
