The encounter has no phases, however, one of the bosses will be invulnerable, and this will alternate between the two bosses every time the player damages the vulnerable boss for 25% of his health. Zana Caeserius does not assist the player during this fight, unlike both the Elder and the Shaper encounters where she is present and provides various defensive abilities.

Recommendations

The Uber Elder is considered to be one of the most difficult boss encounters in Path of Exile, as players are pitted against both The Elder and The Shaper simultaneously. Players must be very careful to place the Shaper's Vortex portals around the edges of the arena failing which the entire arena will littered with permanent vortices that cause heavy damage over time. Players have to also avoid the Elder's Ring of Death and the Shaper Beam and Projectiles, all of which can be deadly if not dealt with properly.

The following is recommended:

  • Mastery of the mechanics of The Elder and The Shaper
  • At least 1 million damage per second
  • Capped elemental resistances (fire, cold and lightning resistance at 75%); additional Maximum Cold Resistance is also useful for Shaper balls and Elder icicles.
  • At least 5,000 combined Life and Energy Shield and a reliable source of recovery
  • Moderate mitigation or avoidance, including Physical damage reduction, Armour, Block, Spell Suppression
  • Movement skill to avoid Shaper's beam and both bosses' slams

Skills

The Elder is assisted by the Shaper in this battle. The battle essentially pits the player against both bosses, with some differences:

  • One of the bosses will be invulnerable, alternating between the Elder then the Shaper for every 25% health lost. After the 25% health intermission phase, both bosses will be vulnerable; the Shaper can be killed, but the Elder cannot be killed or culled and instead plays a death cutscene upon reaching 0% health.
  • Volatile Anomalies and Madness Propagators will continuously spawn during the fight, alternating every 20 seconds. These will create vortex ground or eldritch decay pools on the floor which deal damage over time and last for the duration of the fight. Madness Propagators must be defeated to prevent them from creating their degens; Volatile Anomalies cannot be hit but can be walked through to detonate them in a safe location.
  • There are no special intermission phases from either boss.
  • At each 1/4 health lost from both bosses, the Elder or Shaper will spawn additional monsters.
    • The Elder will summon multiple Null Portals at 25 and 75% health. The Elder will not attack during this intermission phase.
    • The Shaper channels a monster portal like in his regular fight at 50% health. The Shaper will not attack during this intermission phase.
  • The Elder does not use his Super Siphon attack or the debuff Crystalised Fear status icon.pngCrystalised Fear
  • The Shaper does not use his Shadow Clone or Bullet Hell attack.

Lore

The Uber Elder was the final boss encounter in the War for the Atlas expansion, which occupied the Shaper's Realm. However, that end-game storyline was retired and replaced by the Conquerors of the Atlas (itself was replaced by the end game of Siege of the Atlas). According to the Conquerors of the Atlas game lore, the Elder was slain by the Elderslayers led by Sirus, Awakener of Worlds, and was removed from the Atlas. Players can still fight Uber Elder using the Maddening ObjectMaddening ObjectCan be used in a personal Map Device. map fragments, but do not need to chase the Elder and Shaper across the Atlas anymore. These map fragments can be obtained by defeating the Shaper and the Elder. This encounter is formally known as "The Elder in the Shaper's Realm".
