Gyges the Great is the final boss of Copperbell Mines.

Strategy Edit

Gyges will start by auto-attacking with the occasional Grand Slam damage spike. At 80% HP, he will run to the back-right of the room and start beating down a boulder in the wall. It takes him less than 10 seconds to take down the boulder, leaving a hole in the wall. He will then return his attention to party and add Colossal Slam to his attacks, a massive and highly damaging cone-shaped AoE.

Once he's made the hole in the wall, Stone Servants will start coming out. The first Servants will ignore the party and instead move to destroy a second boulder near the entrance of the room. It takes the Servants about a minute to take down the second boulder, leaving yet another hole out of which Stone Servants will pour out. At this point the Servants will finally turn their attention to the party.

Each hole spawns a Servant every 30 seconds, in 15 second intervals alternating between the two of them, up to a maximum of 8 servants at any given time. With how quickly they spawn, the servants can quickly overwhelm the party if the second hole is allowed to open. There are two ways to avoid this - first by having one or both of the DPS focus on killing the Servants trying to open the second hole. However, this diverts damage from Gyges, which can make for a very long and draining fight as Gyges has quite a bit more HP than other bosses seen thus far (Ichorous Ire excluded). The popular alternative is instead for the party to completely ignore the Stone Servants in favor of burning down Gyges. This gives the party a little over a minute after the first Servant spawns to take down the boss before they start getting overwhelmed.

Etymology Edit

Gyges is one of the Hekatonkheires. The Hecatoncheires were children of Gaia and Uranus who were thrown into Tartarus as soon as they were born. They were released by Zeus, and aided him in overthrowing Cronos. They were giants depicted with one hundred arms (and sometimes even fifty heads). The name (Εκατόγχειρες - Hecatonchires) is of Greek origin: Hecaton (εκατόν-) means one hundred and chires (-χείρες) means hands.
