Telos: Magic (fSoA) soa

Introduction

This guide assumes very strong understanding of everything found in #telos-basic and #Stuns & Mechanics Overview. The rotations listed below are ideally used at 1000%+ enrage. However, they will generally work at lower enrage as well, and it is encouraged to learn these rotations as early as possible to build good habits and muscle memory.

An average kill at 2449% enrage is worth coins 9,964,225 in uniques. This assumes an estimated orb price of coins 68,183,547. Advanced players can get up to 17.1 kph, earning coins 170,388,246/hr.

Notable Enrage Checkpoints and Changes (999+)

1000% P4 one rock will fall, P5 multiple rocks will fall, immortality no longer works P5, and Telos will freedom stuns and binds with a 16 tick cooldown

2000% "So you think you can guard?" Achievement, aka Silver Warden

2700% Tendrils damage required caps at 30,000

3300% The first prayer drain on P3 will smite you from full unless Telos touches the beam.

4000% Hard enrage cap; "True Warden" achievement, aka Gold Warden

Presets and Relics

Preset Suggestions

Prefight

Pre-building is recommended as it allows you to preserve your adrenrenewal for P3. However, it is not strictly necessary. If skipping pre-build, you must still devo and surge properly to ensure proper target cycle timing. For more details, read "Target Cycling" in #Stuns & Mechanics Overview.

(AC incitefear) dummy nat + click dummy → vokeantiprepchain + dummy diss → dbreath + devo → (wait 2 ticks) → surge

Note 1: requires dual wield equipped and Invigorating 4 invig4 - alternatively, use one extra ability.

Note 2: if ability queueing is enabled, replace dbreath with eofspec

Phase 1

Notes on Execution
Demo w/ ability tracker: link All P1 rotations have a variation of combsmokecloud freedomicebarrage ability, done as follows: ⬥ (Tick 0) - comb with staff + walk forward, in that order, same tick ⬥ (Tick 1-2) - equip DW ⬥ (Tick 3) - smokecloud + freedom in that order, on next GCD (offhand freedom auto) ⬥ (Tick 4-5) - equip staff ⬥ (Tick 6) - icebarrage + ability, in that order, same tick on next GCD (not a 4TAA)

You must be north of Telos for omni to hit on-tick. Do this either by walking to NE corner of your sunshine some time after comb, or by clicking Telos just after walking comb

Note: to increase consistency of reaching phase HP, use enchanted inquisitorstaff for every 2H abil post-hammer, and enter the fight with wrackandruin available.

Phase 2

bloodblitz → (wait 1t) → fsoa specgconc → (AC exsanguinate) gstaff eofspec → (limitless) wm + walk back to corner → icebarrage gconcsmoketendrils

⬥ Depending on HP/desired consistency

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● gconcdbreath + surge + dive

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● asphyx (2 hit) → wrack + surge + dive → scomb

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● asphyx (3 hit) → wrack + surge + dive

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● asphyx (3 hit) → impact / deep → improvise

Note 1: if adrenaline following gstaff eofspec is too low to wm then substitute with dbreath

Note 2: recommended to AC incitefear for a hit of smoketendrils to trigger Frost Surge, before reverting to exsanguinate

Phase 3

bloodblitz corruptblastmeta adrenrenewalbloodblitz gconcwrackandruincomb + surge + walk to beam → icebarrage wm

⬥ Depending on HP

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● asphyx (2 hit) → gconcdbreathdive to ledge

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎● omnigconcdbreathdive to ledge

Note: using enchanted inquisitorstaff for each 2H ability, and stalling comb in P2 will increase consistency of wm asphyx rotation.
