Behavior

Awakening Phase
Upon being awakened, Polaris circles around the boss room. They do not fire any bullets, and they periodically heal Frimar and Glacius for 100 HP . After a certain amount of damage, they fire rings of weakening bullets and shoot ice arrows and jester bolts at the nearest player. If more damage is dealt to them, they will fully awaken and move on to the next phase. They cannot be stasised until they are fully woken.

Battle Phase
Polaris stops firing the rings of weakening bullets and begins firing rings of multicolored boomerangs that inflict a variety of status effects. As they takes damage, they will begin firing their ice arrows and aqua bolts (later in pairs), and bursts of blue paralyze shots. They still continue to heal Frimar and Glacius periodically for 100 HP.

Occasionally Polaris will flash and start hugging one of the other tomb bosses, or one of the other tomb bosses will flash and start hugging Polaris.

At a certain amount of damage, Polaris starts spawning Ice Artifacts. When their health is low enough, they move into their rage phase.

Rage Phase
In her rage phase, Polaris will turn red, become temporarily invulnerable, and quickly chase nearby players. Their attacks become much more frequent and they spam all of them simultaneously, along with a barrage of blue paralyze bullets that sweeps the area clockwise. If there is nobody in their detection range then they will remain stationary.

Tips and Strategies

At the beginning of its rage phase, it will always shoot her non-directed blue paralyzing bullets towards the east (right, if angled at 0°), so that side is best avoided when it is nearly about to rage.

If you get paralyzed while it is in rage mode, you are done for unless you manage to kill it, stun it, use Holy Water or Purification tome, or just spam your health potions.
