Venat: Elpis (X:8.1, Y:14.7)
Nearest Aetheryte: Poieten Oikos
Venat has a new course of investigation in mind.
Survey the area from the vantage point.
Speak with Venat.
Speak with Venat to start a Duty.
Speak with Venat.
This Duty will begin with Venat casting Circumzenithal Arc. A ground attack that will take up approximately 90% of the floor. Stand in the safe space behind Venat to avoid this attack.
Next she will cast Mousa’s Mantle followed by Epea Pteroenta. Epea Pteeroenta will be three one thirds of a circle ground attack which will resolve once all three segments appear. Stand in the area the first one was to avoid.
Next she will cast Parhelion. Which is a spinning fan blade attack. Which will rotate counter clockwise. There will also be an expanding radius circle which you must dodge over while avoiding the rotating fan blades. You must move in time with the orange markers on the ground to avoid getting hit.
She will then cast Magos’s Mantle which is a buff. She will then start casting True Aero IV. This will do a lot of damage and will also spawn a number of green aether points in the arena which the player must avoid otherwise they will be hit when they explode.
She will then cast Afflatus Azem. This places a forward marker over the player. The path the player then runs to will be followed by ground AOEs. Do not stand still otherwise they will stack on top of the player.
Next she will cast True Holy. Which is a knockback - potentially into the circular AoEs from the Aether Currents. Be sure to stand somewhere where you will be knocked back to a safe area or use Arms Length.
Next she will cast True Stone IV. This will be a large circular AoE in the centre of the arena followed by a number of smaller AoEs. The large circle in the middle will explode first so run to the outside. After this explodes there will be a small gap in the middle which will be safe. The orange circles on the outside will resolve in the order they appeared in the ground in quick succession.
After taking her down to about 20% health the fight will enter a new phase. The goal of this phase is to nuke down as many of the Thelema bubbles that spawn and will slowly move towards her. If enough of these hit her it will fill her Aether which can be catastrophic.
After killing the first wave of Thelma bubbles. She will start spawning Thelema Agapes which are red versions which move quicker. Focus these down first. After surviving a few rounds of these spawning while dodging her other mechanics you will be successful in completing the duty.
Speak with Venat again.
Speak with Venat after the Duty to Complete the quest.
