Rethiarius Commander

Story of the Rethiarius Commander

The link of intelligence is supervised by the “Rethiarius” Legatus. He is also the commander of the temporary base of Mechanoids. It is known that the ratarians are able not only to manage, but also to create more simple Mechanoids without much difficulty. And if you do not destroy the “Legatus”, after a while he will assemble a new link, or maybe an army.

Boss Abilities

Battlefield of the Rethiarius Commander

To an immortal, lightning is almost as bad as water. Contrary to the game “Hot & Cold”, Cold is good and Hot is bad.

The Rethiarius breaks into a large number of small components that are scattered around the map, three of which contain God spark particles which can be picked up once the respective component is destroyed.

The boss remains broken apart in this form until until one of the following conditions are met:

  1. either a certain period of time has passed,
  2. upon a player in the party has picked up all three God spark particles.

Once one of these conditions are met, the Rethiarius reforms back into his complete cube structure.

The Rethiarius surrounds itself with a shield and starts summoning Oculats. The shield can be removed by sending a certain sequence of signals from the surrounding consoles. Each consoles signal travels at a different speed. For the shield to be destroyed, the Rethiarius should receive a certain number of signals at nearly the same time. If the characters fail to do this task in time, fatal damage is inflicted to all players.

The Rethiarius surrounds itself with an impenetrable shield, and balls of energy fly around it. Some of the balls move towards the boss to restore health the remaining chase players.

Upon impact, it will inflict fatal damage to them. If they hit the boss, it will activate the shield removal phase. To remove the shield completely, all balls of energy that are chasing players, must hit the boss within a short period of time. If the players fail to do that in time, fatal damage is inflicted to all players in the party.

The Rethiarius surrounds itself with a shield and marks two random players, who need to take positions at a certain distance from the Rethiarius, as well as each other to remove the shield.

The lower the boss’s health, the more pairs are marked and must remove the shield.

While the shield is active, Secutor Interceptors are summoned that chase the marked players. The shield must be destroyed within a limited time which changes depending on the stage of the battle. If the players fail to do that in time, fatal damage is inflicted to all players in the party.

The Rethiarius attacks all players, in a wide cone, in front of it, with lightning, leaving a small safe area behind it.

Furthermore, the boss chooses one random player and defends itself against them using a small shield.

How do I get the God spark?

During the Break phase, the player who picks up the 3 God spark particles,  gains their Divine form for 2 minutes.
