|Lots of Missiles (Defense Sequence Two)||Raidwide AoE damage that is unavoidable. Spread out to lessen the damage|
|Air Strike||Easily avoidable red circles on the ground. Spawns Titan Probe adds after.|
|Launch (Defense Sequence Three)||Titan flies up in the air and the leaves behind a rocket blast at end of channel that will hit anyone not hiding behind rocks for 21k damage. Spawns Titan Probe adds when he lands.|
|Missile Burst & Flame Burst (<20%)||Soft Enrage mechanic. Missile Burst is an unavoidable raidwide damage while Flame Burst is an proximity based AoE damage all around the boss. Burn the boss before your healers run out of heals|
|Titan Probes||Adds with 20k HPs. 2-3 spawn after every Airstrike while 6 spawn after every Launch. They do a Targeted Laser attack that deals minimal damage.|
Titan 6 is a huge robot that specializes in Regional Annihilation at Reasonable Rates. This fight has a lot of raidwide AoE damage, something the healers should be aware. The fight is divided into two phases. Phase 1, which is from 100% to 20%. Phase 2, starts from 20% and is a soft enrage phase with constant AoE damage. Phase 1 is further broken up into bits in which the entire raid must hide behind rocks to avoid the massive explosion from Titan 6’s rockets.
Phase 1 basically repeats this attack sequence over and over.
Lots of Missiles –> Air Stike –> Lots of Missiles –> Launch
Lots of Missiles
This is an unavoidable raidwide AoE damage for 6 seconds. It ticks for 1.5k every second for about 9-10k damage in total. While Titan 6 channels this ability, everyone will get hit by missiles. This is an AoE attack so the raid should spread out while this attack is being channeled to reduce the overall raid damage. Group can stack up for heals after the channel has ended. You can also lessen the damage you take by running around during this phase.
When starting this attack, Titan 6 will announce – Initiate defense sequence two! both as an audio cue and also in your chat window.
This attack comes in between Lots of Missiles. It it a 2 second cast that spawns red circles on the ground that can be easily avoided. After the red circles disappear, two Titan Probes will also spawn from under the boss that will need to be killed.
Launch comes immediately after the second Lots of Missiles attack. Titan 6 will announce this attack as Initiate defense sequence three! Launch is a 8 second ability. At the end of the cast, Titan 6 will fly up in the air and the ground will be engulfed in flames. You must take shelter behind the rocks (running to the orange spot behind them will automatically put you in cover) unless you can take 21k damage or have abilities that make you immune to damage like Sorcerer/Sage’s Force Barrier.Note that you can use your abilities while under cover but you won’t be able to move.
When Titan 6 lands on the ground, six Titan Probes will spawn and must be dealt. Each of them have around 20k HP.
Phase 2 is a soft enrage mechanic. Once Titan 6 hits below 20%, he will drop down on the ground via an attack called Explosive Charge (deals around 7k damage). From here on, he will bombard the raid with Missile Burst which hits for about 2.7k damage every 3 seconds and sprays those around him with Flame Burst, a proximity based AoE attack that deals 3.6k damage every couple of seconds. There are gaps in the fire circle where melee DPS can stand and not take damage from Flame Burst.
You do not want to stack together for this phase as Missile Burst is an AoE attack like Lots of Missiles and will cause stacked players to take much more damage. All the ranged DPS and healers should be spread out and standing away from the fire circle.
From this point on, this is mostly a race to kill Titan 6 before the raidwide AoE damage overwhelms your healers.

|Huge Grenade||Occurs after Airstrike and before the second Lots of Missiles. This attack is aimed at the tank w/ threat and requires tank swap. Make sure tank being targeted is topped off and run away from the raid.|
|One person per rock during Launch||Only one person allowed to hide behind each rock. Make sure to head for the rocks during second Lots of Missiles|
|Probe adds||It helps to group the adds on the boss when they spawn so DPS can use AoE attacks to both damage the boss and kill the adds at the same time.|
|Grapple (soft enrage)||Titan 6 will periodically grapple ranged players into the fire circle during the soft enrage. This will cause players being grappled to take Flame Burst damage in addition to Missile Burst.|
As can be expected, Titan 6 deals a lot more damage on hardmode. This means that you should always spread out for Lots of Missiles. It deals about 2.6k damage every second for 6 seconds (~16k damage in total). Running around during this phase to lessen the damage isn’t ideal as you risk running into other players and compounding the damage.
In addition to the increased damage, there are a few new mechanics for hardmode.
Basically a tank swap mechanic. After the Airstrike attack, Titan 6 will lob a huge grenade to the tank with threat. This tank will receive a giant red circle undernearth them and will need to run away from the raid while the other tank taunts Titan 6. Tanks will need to be topped off or use a defensive cooldown to survive this. Anyone else caught in the red circle will mostly likely die without a defensive cooldown as the attack deals ~32k damage to non tanks.
Rocket Launch & Rocks
Only one person can hide behind each rock during Rocket Launch and the launch sequence is a lot faster. Therefore, everyone should be moving toward a rock during the second Lots of Missile attack to ensure that they can find an unoccupied
Dealing with Probe droid adds
To ensure maximum DPS on Titan 6, everyone should be running to the boss when he lands from Launch and spawns the probe droid adds. This will group all the adds on top of the boss and allow DPS to use AoE attacks to damage both the boss and the adds at the same time.
Phase 2 (20%)
Remember that there are gaps in the flame circle that melee DPS can stand to not take damage from Flame Burst (~5k). Everyone will be taking AoE damage from Missile Burst and should be spread out to minimize damage. Titan 6 will grapple ranged players into the fire circle periodically and cause them to take Flame Burst damage. Make sure to run out quickly when this happens to lessen the damage.
This is a strictly a burn phase so any adrenals or DPS cooldowns should be saved for this phase.
