Aetherblade Foreman Spur is a powerful, high-ranking charr member of the Aetherblades who oversees the Aetherblade Shipyard in Scarlet's factory beneath Twilight Arbor. He's the second boss encountered in Aetherpath of Twilight Arbor (explorable) and is initially surrounded by several large groups of Aetherblades who must be dealt with beforehand.

In combat, he dual-wields axes and rapidly deals high Point Blank AoE damage while possessing multiple methods of inflicting bleeding, crippled, and vulnerability. His unique skills include creating small, high-damage AoE fields; creating a wide, impassable PBAoE ring; and performing a PBAoE whirling attack that pulls and launches.

  • Foreman spur raises his arms briefly and then performs a point-blank area of effect Radius.png Pull, immediately followed by a channeled whirling attack similar to Whirling Axe that lasts for 3 seconds.

As he travels, he'll also deal point-blank area of effect damage while inflicting Crippled.png cripple, Vulnerability.png Vulnerability, and Bleeding.png Bleeding multiple times per second. When the whirlwind is finished, it causes a point-blank area of effect Launch.png Launch at his location.
  • Foreman spur creates a wide radius, point-blank area of effect ring of sound that enemies cannot cross, similar to Ring of Warding. The ring Knockdown.png knocks down on contact, but it deals no damage and the foreman will be unable to perform his channeled whirling attack while it's active.
  • Foreman spur continuously gains 5 seconds of Fury.png Fury and/or Swiftness.png Swiftness every 1-3 seconds throughout the encounter, each boon stacks up to a 30 second duration.
