Araxxor: Magic

Note: a Table of Contents can be found in the pinned messages for this channel.


This is an advanced guide which assumes a strong underlying knowledge of all mechanics and information presented in #araxxor-basic. Each path subsection contains the relevant strategies for p1-3. P4 is the same for all paths.

Presets and Relics

Preset Suggestions

Preset Notes

⬥ It is recommended to have the NopeNopeNope perk from Player Owned Farms active.

⬥ Upkeep the kalgscroll buff from your familiar.

⬥ Araxxor takes a few seconds to clear vulns on phase 1-3, making vuln bombs vulnbomb usable on all phases.

Top Path

Phase 1

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This phase is timegated so it can be used to set yourself up for p2 while you deal damage

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Stall tsunamiincite when the web burn reaches ~80%

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Release with gconc then build and nat at close to 100% web burn

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• gconc then build adren till web burns completely

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• You may wait for Araxxor to do a special attack after web finishes burning before going into phase 2 (not needed but provides safer skips)

Phase 2

This phase is skipped

Turn towards web, and when it burns, drink the accel and surgebdsurgesurgebd straight to phase 3, then immediately drop a dummy

Phase 3

While waiting for Araxxor to come up the path do the following (use filler abilities as needed)

kalgscroll + gsunshinefsoaHydrixBakri gricocaroming → s omnipowerigneous

When Araxxor is within range of your gsunshine, swap your autocast spell to icebarrage and do the following

r omnipowerigneous (disassemble your dummy) → smoketendrilswm → if Araxxor heals or if this fails to phase him, then improvise

Middle Path

Phase 1

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Walk Araxxor so he is right against the web (see below how to walk p1)

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• At 99% web burn you can bladed dive bd + surge surge into phase 2

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ You'll know if you did it correctly if Araxxor starts absorbing the acid at 1:06 rather than the standard 1:12. This can be delayed if rax does a spec right before the web finishes burning.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Below is a diagram to help with positioning Araxxor on P1 (Camera facing east)

‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ The yellow line is the line to stand on after walking Araxxor, if you move 1 more square east Araxxor will run into the web and start going west again which could ruin the setup. If you have trouble finding this spot just keep in mind you must stand 1 east of the line where the skulls are (circled in red).

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Here is a video example on walking Araxxor in P1:

Phase 2

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Run across the acid pool and 3 tiles onto the ramp. This puts Araxxor as far up the path as he can be while still absorbing acid.

‎‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Deal damage

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• When rax has absorbed 53% acid, you can bd + surge up the ramp, then walk 1 tile west so you have room to dodge cleave specials at the top of the ramp.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ You'll know you did this correctly if rax goes up to 55% then starts dropping, and you'll get the popup message that the bridge is burning when there is 49% acid left. This is the perfect amount needed.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Set up for phase 3

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎⬩ Natural instinct nat timing is calculated based on how much acid rax has poured onto the bridge. The timing is roughly when the bridge has absorbed 25-30% acid. Under normal circumstances, this means the popup would appear at 49%, so you would nat when the bar says 24-19%.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• tsunamiincite and fsoa spec then build to 100%

Phase 3

(tc) Araxxi + vulnbomb + kalgscroll + metagconcdbreathomnipowerigneoussmoketendrilswm

Bottom Path

Phase 1

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• No special setup. Just DPS Araxxor down to <5k hp.

Phase 2

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• No special setup. Follow the light and wait for the charge. Stay at 100% adrenaline.

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• When you dodge the charge and Araxxor damages the wall, you can click the minimap to start running into phase 3, and then right click Araxxor when he is going up into the ceiling so you can right click 'attack' instantly in phase 3. This is nice in case minions spawn during p2 to avoid Target Cycle targeting them instead of Araxxor.

Phase 3
