The Dread Masters possess incredible, unprecedented power over the dark side of the Force; a power developed through rituals created by one of their own, the incomparable Sith alchemist known as Styrak. Even before Styrak became one of the Dread Masters, his superior intellect and sadistic experiments on subjects both living and dead were infamous. Hundreds, perhaps even thousands of slaves and beasts have been claimed by Styrak’s heartless pursuit of mastery over the Force. Styrak is also the most individualistic of the Dread Masters: whether out of pride or supreme confidence, he is the one most likely to strike out alone in pursuit of the group’s goals. Rumors have long suggested that the Dread Masters only possess their full power when acting together, but so far, no one has dared to test the rumor by challenging Styrak during any of his “excursions”.
believes that almost all SWTOR players have played S&V HM and more
specifically Styrak. Most of you may have your own tactics and mechanics of the
fight, here let us summarize those tactics together (Basically, the tactics
have not changed up to now.)
The Trash Pull
Nothing too special here. The fight is
exactly as it was. Pull the lines 1 by 1, interrupting the channel of the gold
NPC (many SWTOR players choose to buy SWTOR Gold) when it starts healing
and force it to move to melee range for AoE. Repeat this for each wave. Not
recommended to pull more than 1 or 2 waves together, unless you are looking for
The only real difference compared to SM is
the bigger damage. While the Dragon spins, the spines hurt a lot more.
Mmogah.Com suggests that every guy stacks behind the tank and does not stop
doing damage during the period of the spinning. Although the boss is shielded, still
takes damage and sometimes it may prove useful. Killing the ads as soon as you
see them to avoid the green goo. When running with 1 tank, the 2nd highest on
the “threat table” will take Kel Dragon while tank is “channeled” by the ads.
With standard 2 tank team, the 2nd tank picks up the boss. Moving in one
direction to make the MDPS easier and put the green goo “behind” the group. There
is no “pushing” NPC in HM.
Styrak and his Ghosts
You will need to push maximum DPS overall.
Depending on the team’s gear and class balance, even healers may need DPS
during the Manifestation burns. You can use Raid Buffs at the beginning of Kel
Styrak drops right after you kill Kep
Dragon. After a while he disappears and a big giant ghost apparition spawns in
the middle accompanied by 4 ads connected to each other with lightning beam. The
4 keel moving closer to the middle and you need to kill the Manifestation
before they reach it, resulting in instant wipe.
After the Manfestation, Styrak appears
again, just briefly. Don’t waste that time, do as much damage on him as you
can. Shortly after that, he will disappear once again, spawning 4 spirits at
12, 3, 6, 9 o’clock (12 being the throne). Their positions are always
stationary in HM, unlike in NiM. One player needs to quickly move in melee
range to them. Best practice is to assign these 4 players before starting the
boss fight. The spirits damage the closest person and if they are not in melee range,
the incoming damage is very nasty.
Next, Styrak returns again.
Styrak - Big Manifestation - Styrak - Four
During Styrak and his Ghosts, this cycle
repeats 4 times. If you do not get to next phase before the 5th Manifestation
appears, you will face enrage.
Not to forget, the nightmares, and they
happen to 1 random player every time. Styrak is on the floor before the big
Manifestation spawns. Inside the nightmare, you have to kill your own
Kel Dragon Returns
Around 12% Styrak will call for help and
reanimate the Dragon again. As soon as this happens, the team needs to dish out
big burst of DPS and take the monster as quick as possible. During this, Styrak
is channeling (the tank) while regenerating health slowly. Use defensive
cooldowns and raid buffs.
The Final Burn
After the beast is dead, Styrak is easy to
kill. Keep him in the middle or bring him next to the vridge, but not under it
and DPS him down as quick as possible. The AoE damage is unavoidable and the
sooner he drops, the better.
Above all, I summarize those tactics from
a strategy written by an elite player. I just want all of you to know about the
