Tips

  • When the Black Star uses Astral Avalanche, hide behind pillars on the blue section of the arena. (Pillars on the red section will break.) Ensure you are angled correctly away from the meteors. The meteors will always fall in the direction from the Black Star towards the center.
  • When the Black Star uses her Beam, hide behind pillars on the red section of the arena. (Pillars on the blue section will break.) The Black Star will strafe slightly while using this attack.
  • Be wary that being in the red section gives you a debuff that makes you more susceptible to fire damage, and being in the blue section makes you more susceptible to cold damage.
  • An alternate strategy is to gain stacks of the Annihilating Light debuff (red section) before Astral Avalanche and stacks of the Crushing Darkness debuff (blue section) before the Beam. Both of these debuffs will grant you less damage taken of the opposite element, allowing you to easily tank the damage if timed correctly.
