Lostmauth Guide written by two members of our awesome QA Team: StrumSlinger and Maglebeast
One of the three red dragon lords of Tuern that claimed the underground temple as his lair, which was built by seafaring barbarians of Tuern in service to him. As a red dragon, his greed and vanity manifest in his throne room with glorious mounds of gold coins and molten gold snaking through – a courageous yet foolish thief’s dream. But what does Severin want with Lostmauth? Do you dare to find out?
Class Specific Strategies:
Guardian Fighter – Expect to have the wind knocked out of you left and right as you desperately try to block the entire kitchen sink Lostmauth throws at you. Being the slowest class, you’ll get the chance to make a lot of new friends in the form of fireballs. When Lostmauth starts to use his draconic gaze ability, your job is to get in the way and either block or act as a meat shield, so keep your eyes peeled. Even though Lostmauth doesn’t move it won’t be easy to keep him targeting you, but that is your goal throughout the fight.
Great Weapon Fighter – Unstoppable is your best friend.
Pummel Lostmauth with single target attacks while Sprinting around each AoE attack. Pretty straightforward.
Devoted Cleric – Good luck, brave acolyte! With everyone running around like headless chickens, as a support class, you will have your hands full. Avoid any power that has you standing in the same spot for more than a second (like Bastion of Health). Astral Shield might not be a good choice for this fight, but if you are great at placement, then by all means feel free to use it.
Trickster Rogue – Much like the GWF, you’re pure DPS. Use as many single-target heavy hitting attacks. Unlike the GWF, you’re pretty squishy and don’t have Unstoppable so don’t go running in blindly. Not like you would anyways; you’re a Rogue! There’s quite a few ways to avoid AoEs in your arsenal of powers, but they’re not all worth the risk or payoff.
Control Wizard – Control Wizards can deal ridiculous amounts of damage either by utilizing Smolder and Rimefire or lightning passives. Chill is virtually useless as Lostmauth neither freezes or moves, but it might be worth it for Rimefire. A CW can just blindly shoot off their single-target spells and avoid the AoEs. You’d be surprised at how much periodic damage is dealt.
Hunter Ranger – With nowhere far to run and long startup times for powers, a HR might have some trouble with Lostmauth. You might find a safe spot to fire off a power, but get knocked by a fireball from behind and get interrupted; all those precious seconds wasted! I’d avoid Aimed Shot, Marauder’s Escape, and Hawk Shot. Grasping Roots also don’t work on Lostmauth, but it’s not like he moves anyways.
Scourge Warlock – Still a somewhat new class, there are numerous ways to go about fighting Lostmauth with a SW. Obviously, don’t use anything that requires the death of an enemy like Dark Spiral Aura or Dark One’s Blessing. Focusing on Soul Puppets might not benefit you as well as a Soul Puppet will most likely die very fast due to the fact that it can’t dodge willingly. Keep your Curse on him at all times and suck his life away with single target spells.
