Garanth has 3 skills and one debuff that players need to keep in mind, as he casts them often during combat.
- A stacking debuff that can be applied by Festering Winds and Poisonous Spit. It can stack up to 7 times.
- Every few seconds, while affected by Fester, the player will take a portion of its maximum HP. The more stacks a player has, the higher this percentage is.
- Fester will gradually fade away, one stack at a time.
- Garanth pulls all party members within the vicinity towards him and peppers the area with 3x3 poison cloud AoEs that explode within a small delay.
- Getting caught in the small explosions builds up 1 Fester stack on the player.
- Garanth marks a target and deploy a 7x7 AoE around it that explodes within a small delay.
- Getting caught in the explosion builds up 2 Fester stacks.
- Garanth pushes all players back from him, becoming immune to damage before taking a flight. During the flight, Garanth marks a player and shoots meteors in his direction.
- Garanth can change targets periodically within this sequence and returns to its original position after using this skill.
- Fester can stack up to 7 times, with each stack increasing the damage exponentially. This means it deals low damage at a lower amount of stacks, but becomes deadlier the more stacks you have.
- Try to avoid Garanth's poison clouds until the effect fades away to not stack it further.
- As damage is based on a percentage of the player's maximum HP, Tanks might find themselves on a tricky situation if they let Fester build up, even with high resistance or high HP amounts to spare.
and can remove a single Fester stack when used.
- Knowing this, a or an can come in handy when fighting Garanth.
