Hey guys, in this short guide I talk about Knights being able to survive the attacks from the World Boss in Wartune!
Short Beginner Info
The whole server may participate in killing the World Boss, and the damage is added together to kill it. As servers merge together, becoming larger, World Boss tends to die fairly quickly. After roughly 5 of attacks the World Boss does on a player, it does a large “ultimate” attack which is intended to completely kill, ending the round.
Knights & Agoran Shield
The Knight Class has a way of avoiding this deathly blow by the use of the Agoran Shield method. A player may activate Agoran Shield just before their sylph points are fully ready to be awakened. This allows enough time to put the shield up and then awaken into sylph form before the boss does its ultimate attack. When the boss does its ultimate attack, most of the player’s HP will diminish but the player will still be alive. After the ultimate attack, the boss will repeat its pattern of attacks all over again, allowing the player to get a full sylph round in before the next ultimate attack goes off again. If the World Boss is still alive at this point, the player may cancel their sylph before all their awakening points have been used and put their Agoran Shield up again before the ultimate attack goes off. With this strategy, theoretically, a strong player can fight “forever”.
The Agoran Shield method works more efficiently the higher your stats are. The lower your stats the higher chance of this this method not working.
In this video here, I have shown how a Knight is able to utilize the Agoran Shield method to attack the World Boss with 2 player rounds and to awake into Sylph twice.
What about Mages and Archers?
Mage/Archer class can actually also survive. These 2 classes can also survive the ultimate attack as well if they use the Ice Shield skill of a water sylph. However, the water sylph does not do much damage to the boss as it is more of a supportive sylph.
Was World Boss survival always possible?
No. Wartune evolves via patch updates and various fixes and over the years players found various strategies to survive the World Boss ultimate attack and then the game code was changed making these strategies useless, but players always try to find more ways. So depending on the Wartune version that is currently installed for you this strategy might work or might not.
