Behavior

Walks towards players while spawning Crystal Seeds around it, which leave slowing trails before eventually “flowering” and exploding into rings of crystal shards. Periodically, it will choose one of two attacks to execute:

  • Fires a single ring of Purple Lightning Bolts that inflict Confused in the cardinal and intermediate directions while also quickly lunging at players and detonating beige AoEs in itself, which inflict Armor Broken and Sick. It will also throw Blinding red bombs at players that are too far away.
  • Stops in place and summons a line of crystals in their direction, which promptly explodes into crystal shards.

During attacks, it has short periods of Invulnerability

Tips and Strategies

Warning: The Crystal Whip (line of crystals the Monstrosity summons that explode) are stacked shots and will kill your character even if you should be able to tank an explosion. Avoid walking over them!

This Crystal Guardian is not too dangerous by itself, but with the help of the Crystal Entity, it can easily bring a player down. Avoid the Purple Lightning Bolts at all costs. Not only do they inflict Confused, but they also inflict it for a whole 8 seconds. A sudden switch from and to Confused can send you flying into serious danger. Circling the outside of the arena allows you to avoid most of the Crystal Entity’s attacks (except the fractal) while allowing you to focus on taking the miniboss down.

If you see it preparing its whip, you can quickly dash behind it to easily avoid the shots from the crystals. Beware that you don’t try this too late, as crystals’ high damage can seriously damage even the tankiest characters.
