[Be warned this is an advance guide on how to tank Coil of Bahamaut 1st boss, and will not cover the basic mechanics of the boss itself]

Introduction:

Hi this is Rexcale again brining you guys another guide on how to tank like a Baus. First of all, thanks guys and sexy ladies for the positive comments on my guide and glad I can help other new tanks to improve and get better on their end-game content. Well after getting the feel outta way, Lets get started on how to tank Coil Boss 1 Like a Baus.

Since I play the role as an Off-Tank for my CoB team, this guide will be covering how to handle your shit together in an off-tank perspective. To be honest main tanking this boss is fairly easy lol *joking* but off-tank must be abit more cautious of what to do since we have several phases which I will be covering right down below:

[Phase 1] – Stand On Your Ground

Before the fight begins here is where you want to stand:

*Black dot represent the off tank where you want to stand*

*From your perspective*


The reason why you want to stand here is so that you can reach to any tiles whenever it glows to spawn the dirty ass slug. If you look back at the mini map on the top, you can see the pattern. There are three different patterns on how the tiles will lit up. If you were to stand on the blue tiles then reaching the darker blue tiles will be a pain since you have to run up. However if you were to stand on the darker blue tiles as shown on the map, all you have to do is just fall down and right straight to the tiles that are glowing, with ease since the darker blue tiles are higher than the rest of the tiles IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU RUN BACK UP TO YOUR ORIGINAL POSITION AFTER FEEDING THE SLUGS TO THE SNAKE

[Phase 2] - Taking Your Slug For A Walk In The Park

This phase is fairly simple what you want to do is step on to the glowing tile on time

As you can see the slug will spawn after the tiles stop glowing, you have about 15-20 seconds to get to one of the glowing tiles before the time runs out. After that a slug will spawn, as tank what you want to do is to use PROVOKE and SHIELD LOB to get threat, then start kitting the slug to the boss. Do remember not to feed the slug to the boss if the slug has more than 30% health, since the snake will restore its health based on the slug health, so the lower the slug health it is the lower the snake will recover from the snake. DO REMEMBER TO NOT LET YOUR DPS TO KILL THE FUKING SLUG OR ELSE GET READY TO TAKE SOME HEAVY AOE DAMAGE WIPING YOUR WHOLE FUKING PARTY 



This is how far the distance you want to be between you and the slug. If you go any further the slug will explode!! So pay attention to how far you are kitting the slug. Since you are a tank it will not hurt you much to take some hits from the slug as it will only deal roughly around 400-600 damage per attack.  So if I were you I will take the hit like a MAN *PS: Pop Rampart to reduce more damage if you want*

[Phase 3] - How To Feed Your Pet Snake

To feed the snake, what you want to do is to run in the middle of the boss so that you will not get hit from the snake from the front side and at the back side, since both side will deal AOE damage therefore feeding from the side will let you avoid these AOE damage as much as possible as shown below:

*PS Run through the middle of the boss so the slug will follow you, dont just stand at the side. If the boss is a circle shape as shown from the picture above, you want to go through the circle and come out from the other side. But take note not to run too far apart from the slug or else it will explode*

[Phase 4] - Getting Ready To Taunt The 2nd Snake

After repeating phase 2-3 for two to three times, the snake will start to split apart. So as an off-tank what you want to do is stand behind the boss before he start splitting so you will be ready to taunt the 2nd boss once it appears as shown below


What you want to do to is to grab as much hate as possible by spamming your SHIELD LOB and PROVOKE until you are in the right position. This is where you want to take the snake to:

The black Dot represent the Off-tank position and the Red Dot represent the Main tank position during the phase 4 period

The reason why you want to stand between the orange and red color tiles is so that you will not step on to any one of em whenever they start glowing, because in phase 5 all you want to do is tank and spank and let your DPS to focus on the boss. No slugs are needed to be spawn anymore THANK GAWD[/size]

[Phase 5] - Tank And Spank And Pray You Will Not Die

Now we are at the last phase, all you want to do is to dodge the glowing tiles and to stay in the same position as long as possible so the snake AOE will not hit the healers and DPS. Also you want to start popping your defense skills when the stack on the snake is at 2. Use your weakest defense skills and gradually use the stronger ones once the stack gets higher, for example stack 2 - rampart stack 4- Sentinel, stack 5- Hallow Ground

**PS** Tell your DPS to focus the main boss until Its Hp reaches to this:


Then switch over to the snake you are tanking and let your DPS to Kill it, Remember to use Limit breaker level 2 Once it is available do not keep it, TELL YOUR DRAGOON OR MONK TO USE IT FOR OVER 9000 DMG

THE END MUTHERFUKER, HOPE YOU ENJOY THIS GUIDE AND BE ABLE TO DOWN THE BOSS SOON AND TO THOSE TANKS THAT GOT THE CHEST FROM THE LOOT BEFORE ME 

FUK U   .!.


PEACE - Rexcale Chewy
