will drop by the boss in the 28th T14+ Map which is influenced by the Eater of Worlds. This can be repeated every subsequent 28 maps.

The arena is called Absence of Symmetry and Harmony.

Skills

  • Basic attack - tentacles are spawned under the player.
  • Sphere Slam - "Hunger!" - glides to the player's location and channels a large sphere around itself for ~2 seconds, before delivering a slam around itself. The boss often repeats the spell one more time. Very high damage.
  • Tentacles Slam - "Writhing mass!" - after a delay, summons a set of tentacles that slam in a direction. Medium damage.
  • Lightning Beam - "Perish!" - channels for ~1 second, then fires a Shocking beam. Somewhat easily sidestepped. High damage.
  • Doom Phase - "Inescapable doom!" - the boss teleports to the center of the arena and begins to channel, while tracking the player with Doom Laser with a steadily growing AoE from above. Doom Laser applies a debuff that increases damage taken (Inescapable Doom). Purple spheres are spawned around the arena by Maven. The player has to stand in the circle around each sphere for a few moments to activate them (the sphere begins to glow distinctly).
    • Ultimate Slam - If the player fails to activate all spheres in ~20 seconds, extreme damage is dealt to everything in the arena.

Strategy

  • The moving orbs in the arena inflict a debuff called "Drowning," with a 3-second timer when touched. Failing to move away from the orb to remove the debuff causes death after 3 seconds. The orbs move towards the player while the character is facing away, and move away if facing towards the orbs.
  • Avoid rolling the Buffered - 13% increased Quantity of Items found in this Area, 8% increased Rarity of Items found in this Area, Monsters gain (40-49)% of Maximum Life as Extra Maximum Energy Shield (Prefix) invitation mod, as the boss will recharge to full Energy Shield if the player fails to consecutively hit the boss or during immunity phases such as the Doom Phase. This mod will significantly increase the effective health of the boss and is not recommended for builds with low damage.
