These forums are broken RIPHas anyone able to confirm how many players are needed to grab his legs in a party of 8?you need 4 players for a 7-8 man party, 3 for 5-6, 2 for 3-4, and 1 for 2 or less for the leg mechanic. You can only grab the legs if they glow red after you reach to the top, where you must spam E to bring Abom down and stun him for a period of time.
I made it up by myself and spammed E like no tomorrow, failed and dropped death by it.
As for the bell mechanic, half swings are a must when you grab the bell, otherwise you will pull a SH3 protagonist and fall to your death.
The platforms trigger one after the other, so if you see the platform rise up, wait a bit until you see the 2nd platform activate, and then swing it from there.
the first platform will make you take a fixed 250 damage if you get crushed, but you can aim yourself back on to the platform. Though, if it rises as you swing, then you will get an instant death.
the second one activates similarly to minecraft pistons, where they will push the player off the platform, which will unfortunately have you pull a yosemite sam as you plummet to your death, and boy is that fun... not.
the third one is the ultimate test. when it activates, the player will slip off the platform, and will receive a falling damage of a whopping 12,000... ouch.
Assuming that evie has mana shields, she can survive this, but with other players *hears MY LEG from spongebob in the background*, UNLESS of course life flare triggers.
Note that Abom will NOT aggro you when you are the platforms, even with the bat projectile phase.
Patience is key to breaking Abom's barrier, so break a leg when doing a raid. I know I done that about 24 times over. Though, you know what's better than 24? 25! :^)
