Deeken Yells: DIE QUICKLY — I HAVE LUNCH PLANS!
Every Brawl is a dance, some are easier than others. Some you learn to stand there and take the damage, others you need to learn when to move.
I learned to dance Deeken style. He is the last Gladiator of Rank 4 and I had some issues trying to stand still long enough to do damage, while jumping around enough to avoid the static that does random patterns on the floor. So I was going along with trying to increase the time where I didn’t have to avoid the field. So I kept him locked up on spawn as much as possible
Prepot Potion of Brawlers Cunning the Intell + 4k for 25 sec pot ( get it from Quackenbush – The Brawlers Guild Quartermaster)
Run to centre where he spawns. Fear him on spawn,
SWP MB – Psychic Horror before he can do a push back.
MF MF ….
Then it becomes a massive mess of static electricity and a stupid robot pushing you back into that static electricity at the worst of times. Some attempts went really bad. He would push back and interrupt my spells at the worst time.
You can jump over the fields, but I found that It worked better if I danced around them, moved between their ups and downs, and sideways.
The Static hits you for around 90k damage each wave. Some waves overlap each other and can smash you down quickly and thus ended a couple of attempts. I even tried taking a wave or two to get more dps out. Running around, avoiding the static electricity with only SWP and SWD on insta cast hoping to get lucky mindspike procs won’t get him down in enough time.
I found he got immune to my fears eventually, or he resisted them, when I did try to CC it was more to reduce his push backs then reduce the damage he would do in melee, which wasnt much, you spend more time worrying about the waves then him.
Towards the end of the timer there is a pause where it seems that all the Static resets and the floor clears, when I finally killed him I did that then, free space to breath and smash him as hard as you can. By that time, if you haven’t already used a Brawlers Healing Potion, you should be able to use another Cunning pot.
