Boss Fight in The Center Arena

You and creatures will be teleported to a village where you must proceed further to locate the Broodmother Lysrix and the Megapithecus.

Most of the time if you approach from the center of the arena, you will encounter the Broodmother Lysrix first with the Megapithecus several seconds away.

This will give you time to position yourself and your tamed creatures for a better chance at fighting them, which is best away from the cliff.

The Broodmother and Megapithecus will both summon creatures to aid them during the fight, so be sure to have enough tames which are strong and can clear them.

Similar to facing each of the bosses on their own, they will be brought down one at a time, with the arena being complete once both have died.

Tips

  • The first boss you should go after is the Broodmother, since it will be the first one that you usually encounter, giving you a few seconds to deal more damage.
  • Targeting the Broodmother, is suggested to prevent it from spawning more Araneo, which can slow your tames.
  • Avoid staying near the cliff to avoid being pushed off and avoid staying in between narrow areas as you won’t be able to reposition.
