*The Breakdown

Elial The Mercenary uses the class [[Berserker]] which is a melee DPS class with powerful abilities and buffs like [[Improved Berserk Rage]]. His sword, [[Riftrender]], makes his damage Ethereal meaning his damage will ignore whatever armor value you have. This is problem obviously because without a severe amount of Ethereal Armor stacking, Elial will combined with his massive Strength stat will kill you in one or two hits. His most dangerous attacks are [[Critical Strike]], [[Multistrike]], and [[Cleave]], as well as, [[Improved Berserk Rage]].
  
Another tactic other than retreating (due to the fact Elial can wander off and get himself lost in the few seconds you leave him alone) is what is known simply as the "[[Dragon Fear]] Tactic". As its name suggests, the pursuers of this tactic must have the ability Dragon Fear. The group will do a 'primal check' as to find the two dragons whom have the highest Primal skill (to ensure accuracy with the ability). These two dragons will approach Elial when he spawns and cast Dragon Fear upon him at the same time. '''It is extremely important not to hit him when he is fear'ed.''' This will undo the effects of the mez. Once Elial starts moving once more, the rest of the group will approach him and also fear him. The instant he moves again, the group may fight.
 
  
Another way to fight him is to take advantage of his Improved Beserk Rage ability. Along with ignore pain, he will use this upon spawning. 1 minute later, ignore pain will have faded, and the debuff on beserk rage will impact elial reducing his health and damage. It is best to pull at this time (as opposed to wating 30 seconds for only ignore pain - since 30 seconds in he is still gaining health and extra attack damage from beserk rage) since his attacks will do reduced damage for a decent portion of the fight, and he will not recover the health lost from the debuff from beserk rage while in combat meaning you get an easy 1/5th of his neutral health away.

  • The Breakdown

Elial The Mercenary uses the class Berserker which is a melee DPS class with powerful abilities and buffs like Improved Berserk Rage. His sword, Riftrender, makes his damage Ethereal meaning his damage will ignore whatever armor value you have. This is problem obviously because without a severe amount of Ethereal Armor stacking, Elial will combined with his massive Strength stat will kill you in one or two hits. His most dangerous attacks are Critical Strike, Multistrike, and Cleave, as well as, Improved Berserk Rage.


  • Tactic 1: Dragon Mob

A straightforward tactic with minimal investment. Have a group of at least 5 dragons some with high HP to take him down and resurrect with Primal Rebirth and Primal Restoration when necessary. It is recommended to bring Geleon's Master Scroll and a dragon or two with the tech kit Drulkar's Retribution applied to reduce his strength.

  • Tactic 2: Ethereal Dragon Tank(s)

This tactic has a good amount of investment built into but will vastly increase your survivability. Using a dragon with an ethereal armor set using Ethereal Essence Salve while teching the back, hindleg, and wing scales with slash resistance. You should have a total of 1425 ethereal armor without buffs and items applied. The set should look like this

    • Head - Priceless Scale: Salve + Crystal (Health +150)
    • Chest* – Priceless Scale: Salve + Saris Stone of Friendship
    • Forelegs – Priceless Scale: Salve + Reliquary of the Saris
    • Back – Priceless Scale: Salve + Slash Resistance V
    • Hindlegs – Priceless: Salve + Slash Resistance V
    • Tail** – Priceless Scale: Salve + Slash Resistance V
  • *Can be replaced by the Ceremonial Chest Scale for +208 Ethereal Armor. The Drulkar's Retribution tech kit can also be used instead of the salve for 5% chance to reduce his strength by 80%.
  • **Can be replaced by Reklar Tail Scale of Power for 25% less melee damage.

For more ethereal armor, consider using Stone of Seeking’s effect, Void Crystal of Form, Violet Armor Crystal of Ether, and Armor of the Watcher. Geleon's Master Scroll is also a valuable item to use as it reduces his damage by 75% for a minute and Gift of Health and Enhance Health scrolls to help increase your HP pool.

As the tank, try to keep damage on yourself with Menacing Presence, while slowing him down with Staggering Howl and Gold Rage/Breath of Ice. Don’t use Protection as you don’t get base Ethereal Armor no matter what the tooltip tells you.
