Can someone explain why 78 GT randomly 1 shots you? Like what's the point of that buff?

When 78 doesn't 1 shot me, he randomly kills my pet, great. Just great.


Just remove those mechanics from GT. They suit no purpose.

It's not random.

You attack level 78, you trigger his timer, you get the red buff on your char, counting down.
You run to level 77, you kill level 77 fast, but the red buff isn't gone off your char.
You run back to level 78 with the red buff, while you wait for dbl skills, the red buff disappears from your char, marking you dead the next time boss hits you.
You attack the boss, he sees you had red buff that ran out and he instantly kills you.

The way to avoid this is to stay on level 77 a good 10-20 seconds after the red buff runs out and even then do a couple of scene changes 77-78 before attacking 78.


About the pet kills. That happens when you dont take his HP down fast enough. Then he does that AoE damage, you get that purple buff on your char and your pet which instantly kills it. I'm not exactly sure what triggers the blue buff and what triggers the purple buff. From my experience, if I can take the boss down to around 215Ten Thousand HP in 30 seconds, I get the blue buff. If it takes longer, I get the purple buff, my pet dies and I die if I don't run away back to level 77.

The purpose of them is to make the boss fight more challenging and interesting.

What do you mean by red buff? After killing 77 I've always waited until the timer of 77 runs out. I guess that's what you mean by red buff? Or is it another buff?

Blue buff on 78 triggers if you get 78 to 50%(230k) hp inside 30sec

78 hava bug , randomly hapennig looks like.
Have nothing to do with bluo or red buf.
All goes good, get blue buf, go back to 77th, kill 77.
Go for 78th again and he just one shoot you, 250-300k dmg...

This have to be repaired.

Yes. It happened to me twice without any apparent reason.

I killed 77, I waited until the timer and actived skills ran out.
I entered 78 level with only pet buff, shortbreads and DR buff showing.
I went to back to 77 lvl and entered again 78 x2.
I got 1shot when I attacked 78.

I did alx_serbian tactic. I used urus to check 78 boss. It had a 17 minute buff of 5.000 damage bonus and 15.000(?) attack. I am sure about the DB stat but not sure about the attack stat. Anyways it's impossible to not die to that.

Only possible reason was because I attacked 78 only 20 seconds after the timer of 77 ran out. Maybe I have to wait more.


Anyways the whole point of this post was to show the current tactics people say work, really don't work 100% of the time.
