The first phase of the event involves getting up to the energy extractor and overloading it by carrying and entering the extracting chamber repeatedly. While this is being done, the Krewe Leader will periodically fire a blast laser at the general area of the crystals. The laser fires in a shotgun patter at first before firing a large spread attack, as indicated by the area-of-effect spots. Anyone caught by the laser is blasted back for a few seconds. The Krewe Leader can be reached, but is invulnerable to attacks during this phase. After the extractor is overloaded, the light bridge will solidify, allowing travel to the stage the boss stands on.

During the second phase of the fight, the players must take down the Krewe Leader, who uses many Mesmer tango icon 20px.png Mesmer attacks, inflicting Confusion.png Confusion with long durations. He also comes equipped with an unblockable knockback skill, but the panels lined around the rock will save most falling players. Those that do will find a crystal with air aspect powers to jump back up. His normal attacks are very slow, but are capable of ripping boons from players.
