  • In P1, Sarkareth applies a debuff on the raid. Players need to get hit by his breath or beam to clear it before he recasts Glittering Surge.

  • At the start of P2, Sarkareth sends everyone in the Emptiness Between Stars, a different phase. Everyone needs to soak the circles to come back within 20s or he wipes the raid.

  • In P2 and P3, getting hit by most abilities grants stacks of Oblivion. If you reach 10, you're sent back in the Emptiness Between Stars.

  • In P2 and P3, players need to soak bombs and get sent to the Emptiness to explode there and not kill the raid.

  • In P2, dodge the boss' big breaths and kill the adds.

  • In P3, dodge the boss' massive crash on the platform, the asteroids and the ghosts. Hide behind an asteroid to survive the boss' Supernova.
