Hello guys, as I noticed in the overflow and on Blacktide. Most people don't know how to kill Tequila
Here is a small guide with the tactics I picked up from killing him multiple times on Desolation.
So he has like different fases. The fases can be different from time to time. (The more your DPS zerg's deal damage, the less fases you can have.)
You need 5 commanders. 1 leads everything and gives the commands the rest gets divided into groups.
These are the groups.
Left DPS (mostly Warriors, Guardians, Elementalist)
right DPS(Same as above)
East Turrets(Combo of classes) rangers are good for kiting mobs.
West Turrets (same as above)
North Turrets (same as above)
of de fish -> for twapper
after dealing 25% of his health there will be a face where you need to defend the batteries and the megalaser.
The DPS groups go to the megalaser
You have a north, east & west battery that the defense groups of the north, east & west groups defend each have their assigned position.
This fase takes like a bit more then 1 min.
When the timer hits 20 seconds the commander need to go to their assigned position at the dragon (he gets hit by the laser and is very vulnarable.)
15 seconds all the people need to go to their assigned commander (left of right foot)
mesmers will do time warp need to be up all the time.
the groups need to dps the shit out of him.
Then they need to do what is explained again. defending turrets , dpsing the feet.
then the battery fase comes again. And normally after the 2nd battery there will be another battery defend fase.
He should be killed now if your group has enough dps.
Important things to know.
1: If you are at the front dps zerg you need to jump or dodge the waves he casts. (commanders will call them)
2: Turrets need to get his stack of scales down, when he hits 20 stacks a bone wall will appear and he becomes unvulnarable.Achievement Guide.THESE DOESNT REQUIRE A KILL
Stay Dry, Stay Alive – HIDDEN ACHIEVEMENT
This is a hidden achievement, you cannot see it under your achievement window. You must fail the Battery & Megalaser event to cause a massive Tidal Wave to wash over the entire shore. You must avoid this tidal wave by using the jump pads that are used to get to the batteries etc.(Screenshot courtesy of Ella).
I Found it! – 5 pts
When you get Tequatl down to 75%, he will start summoning vortexes. If you get sucked into one of them, swim down and pretty soon in the dark water you will spot a Sunken Treasure. Make sure you have a heal or someone to revive you as you will take constant damage while under water.
Above the Waves – 10 pts
Jump over Tequatl’s shock wave 10 times. Shockwaves are created whenever Tequatl stomps his feet on the ground. You will need to time your jump and jump before the shockwave hits you. Sometimes you can get 2 jumps out of a wave. Failure to jump or dodge over a shockwave can down you if your HP is too low.
very easy achievement.
Have a Seat and Pull the Trigger – 1 pt
All you need to do is to get on a turret, you don’t even need to use it. This also works even if Tequatl event is not active.
Burning Light – 5 pts
Fire the Megalaser at full strength
Once Tequatl is down to 75% and you get to the event where you need to defend the Megalaser and the West, North, and East batteries, you must ensure that no batteries are dead to get this achievement.
Tail Flail – 5 pts
Dodge Tequatl’s tail sweep – stand at Tequatl’s tail and just try to dodge his swipe. May take you a couple of tries (pic provided by Choppos)
Tail sweep seems to occur same time as when Tequatl stomps to create his shockwaves – try time your dodge as the shockwave or shortly afterwards. Can also try swim in the water behind the tail and you may get it.
Another animation you can watch for is when Tequatl’s butt goes forward a bit and then he shakes his butt. You can try dodge right away after that.
Flawless Defense – 10 pts
Defeat Tequatl without allowing any of the hylek turrets to be destroyed (this achievement may trigger even if Tequatl is not killed as long as you make it past the timer with all six turrets intact from the beginning).
There are six turrets overall, make sure all six are alive. You can pick up repair hammers from boxes nearby and repair them before they are destroyed.THESE REQUIRE A KILL
Slaughter in the Swamp – 15 pts
Watch Your Step! – 5 pts
Don’t get caught in any bloated creeper explosions
Quick on Your Feet – 5 pts
Watch the ground carefully past 75% and if you see a water whirlpool forming on your feet, run or dodge out of it. Alternatively, you can probably stay away froim Tequatl (i.e. doing turrets) and be safe from it.
Power Play – 5 pts
Make sure all 3 batteries stay alive during the defend the Megalaser & batteries event and kill Tequatl in the same attempt. Apparently you need to personally visit one battery at the 75% phase, another different battery at 50% and the third battery at the 25% phase. Once Tequatl is killed you will get the achievement.
Thanks for reading.
I am working on the commander title and hoping to get it and lead a succesfull kill!!
