What’s the best way to deal with the Chaos serpent in the Chimera fight? Unlike buy chaos orbs, maybe you couldn’t really stack any chaos res on your build so far, other than Atziri’s promise but that runs out. Should you avoid doing Chimera unless you got above 0 chaos res?
In fact, if you have enough damage you can kill the main one right as it comes out. Just make sure you are on the right door at the start of each wave. You can also swap out one of your rings for a Ming’s Heart if you can make up the resists elsewhere.
The add bosses always come out of the same door (lower right). Best plan is to be ready for it when it comes down and DPS it to death before it can do too much damage. set up totem, and any other ancillary skills ready and waiting for it (orb of storms, golem w/e) If you do not have enough damage to do that, you are probably stuck in a place of not enough DPS and not tanky enough.
Bear in mind these three tips:
- Move really fast around it, so it can never hit you twice in a row
- Atziri’s promise + 5% ming’s heart
- If you can, kill it before it does anything.
Freeze, Stun, Chaos Res item or two (one suggestion itt was ming’s heart – pretty solid swap choice) for swap, constantly move/attack, or be able to react to the mini boss’ telegraph of when he’s going to shoot chaos balls (look at his head), or get enough dps to kill him as he’s being ‘released’. Or more life/es. Or go ci.
For the monsters in the phase, killing them before they get to attack you. If not, tank a hit and kill it. If you can’t kill them fast, it’s your builds fault.
You can also move around it in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction to handle the snake boss. Hit it, move a bit, hit it, move, rinse and repeat. The snake won’t move much even in melee, just gotta be careful not to run into its triple shot if it does move and you chase after it. Also be careful of the poison clouds it can leave behind, those are super deadly.
