- raid-wide AoE
- spawns X marks on where players are standing/facing upon cast
- bait X marks behind boss. MT can stay north side. This way, line of fire will be straight to the north and south

Alea Iacta Est + Terminus Est

Alea Iacta Est
- 4x 180° frontal, and then 1x 180° behind

Terminus Est
- straight-line AoEs from where X Marks are facing

How to handle:
- stack south to bait boss and his Alea Iacta Est
- when he starts casting Alea, go to north (behind him) to dodge his frontal attack
- after his 4x attacks, run to the SE or SW to avoid both his upcoming rear attack AND the X Marks


- tankbuster. Should be shared by both tanks with cooldowns

Ignis Est (Orange X)
- targets random healer or DPS with straight-line AoE marker
- bait marker directly to south
- after cast, split into 2 parties and go outside the arena's inner circle
- MT team stack on outer west
- ST team stack on outer east
- AoE around boss (inner circle) + straight-line AoE on south (where it was baited)

Festina Lente
- shareable AoE on both healers
- stay where you are since you're already in position to share damage

Electrified Gunshield Set
- upcoming knockback from boss when bar charges to 100
- ready to run to mid or prepare anti-knockback skills

Altius (X Marks)

Ignis Est (Inner Circle AoE- bait to south)
- after explosion inside inner circle, run to mid or use anti-knockback skills to avoid getting pushed to the edge

Citius - tankbuster shared by both tanks

Ignist Est (Orange) - AoE line marker (bait to south), AoE inside inner circle (get out)
Ventus Est (Green) - AoE line marker (bait to south), AoE outside inner circle (get in)

Festina Lente - shareable AoEs on healers (E/W or N/S of safe lane if with north X marks)

Electrified Gunshield - knockback on 100
Reinforced Gunshield - N/S or E/W shields on 100
Loaded Gunshield - AoE on everyone on 100, spread to clock phases

Fortius - AoE cone + puddle on everyone- spread to clock position edge then sidestep
