Boss Strategies: How To Beat The Builder

The Big Finish - Builder boss fight banner.png

  • Most of The Builder's attacks are unblockable. Prepare to dodge throughout the fight.
  • The Builder's stomp and specific hammer attacks will inflict shockwaves on the ground, causing players to get knocked back or down. Anticipate these throughout the fight.
  • The Builder will occassionaly send quick shockwaves towards players if they stay out-of-range for too long.
  • The Builder can send an Energy Burst underneath players' feet. Getting hit by this energy burst will send players up in the air, suffering Fall Damage once they hit the ground.
  • The Breakfall skill does NOT negate the Fall Damage.
  • The Builder's stun bar can only be depeleted by attacking the top of his head with arrows.
  • A white orb will spawn everytime The Builder performs an overhead hammer slam. Absorbing this white orb will cause the player's next attack to stagger The Builder. Players can shoot the top of his head when staggered.
  • Players can also use The Builder's Energy Burst attack to shoot arrows towards the top of his head in mid-air. Use this sparingly as players will still suffer fall damage once they hit the ground.
  • The Builder will start to charge up at around 50% HP. His damage is increased for the remainder of the fight and will perform more charged attacks with his hammer.
  • The Builder will start performing Energy Bursts in quick succession in his charged state.
  • During The Builder's charged state, He will have the ability to confine players in a small area. Dodge out of the telegraph before he finishes conjuring the confined space.
