Hey guys, this article is especially to help for those players who do not have merged sylphs and struggle to beat one boss in the new Wartune Patch 6.5 feature Time Portal.
The First Failed Run
2 days ago I published my first run at Time Portal E-Boss where I failed to kill it leaving one full life (= very far away from winning).
Here I had used my COSMOS Knight’s main Dark sylph, 2nd best Zeus and a 3rd weaker Water sylph with a plan to use Rain Dance to heal (that did not work).
Preparing for Victory
Today I posted a video of my 2nd revenge run where I basically achieved victory after making a lot of adjustments to my sylphs. So what exactly did I do?
I checked my sylph equipmentto make sure it was fully enchanted. I found actually 1 item missing 4 points on my main sylph and could do some extra work on weaker sylphs. This was not a huge impact but I always say every little bit adds up.
I checked my sylph equipment refines and found 1 item with 4 refines instead of 5 which I fixed and apart from this I re-did a lot of refinement (probably spent 5k+ Holy Water) to get as much Attack as possible. This is a different strategy for non-Time Portal things but for this (TP) purpose trying to survive I thought would not work so I tried to go for max attack.
Deciding on 3 Sylphs
In my first run, as mentioned/shown I had picked my main Dark, 2nd best Zeus and a weaker Water. I decided to re-look into this and decided to drop the Water and pick either Fire (Cerberus) or Light (Venus) that I had.
I was heavily in favor of Fire because of his more aggressive damage skills, but it would have costed me more resources and bound balens to fix it up, so I went with my Light which had a bit higher BR.
Fixing Sylph Skills
Relatively speaking, this was the most expensive part of my preparation work. I spent something like 5-6k bound balens fixing up skills. 1 change was made on my main Dark sylph giving it a 40% heal and the rest was spent on the Light sylph giving it 1 strong damage attack, a 60% heal and 3 good passives increasing and reducing damage.
Final Result – Victory 🙂
As a consequence of all these optimizations there was a great positive improvement in the performance and I was able to achieve victory! (in the video the boss was left with a tiny bit life but few attempts fixes that :P).
I do not suggest you to literally copy me, but you can copy my mindset and apply it on your specific team:
Don’t give up.
Think and check everything that you can improve.
Find a solution with what you got (no point in complaining about stuff you don’t have).
For TP specifically focus your thinking on a single target maximum damage output and a big heal.

Lastly, I leave with you a “Boss Helper” image I have prepared. This shows the bosses per Portal and their special skills, which can help players prepare better.
