EX ABYSS Argent Knight Ignite GUIDE

SEA, 11919640

 

 INTRO 
Welcome captains to another EX Abyss guide! In this guide - how to beat Argent Knight Artemis - Ignite Weather!

Argent Knight is one of the two bosses in ignite weather. She has high vulnerability to Fire DMG when her ignite trauma is maxed. Fire valks such as Dea Anchora are preferred for this boss.

If you don't have Fire valks, you can still try to bruteforce it with Herrscher of Sentience, for example. Just bring an ignite to take advantage of the weather.

 

 WEATHER REPORT 

  • Weather: Fuel
  • Effect: Enemies take 40% more damage when ignited, and within 4s after ignite ends.
  • Boss: Lance Rider (BIO) and Argent Knight: Artemis (PSY)
  • Best Valkyries: Dea Anchora, Vermillion Knight
  • Next Best Valkyries: Valkyrie Gloria, Flame Sakitama, Herrscher of Sentience

 

 IMPORTANT BOSS INFO 
Argent Knight's resistance and weakness:

1) Glacial Armor

  • Gives 75% Ice,  35% Physical and 25% Lightning Resistance.
  • Gains 30% Total DMG Reduction while attacking.
  • This armor is disabled during Time Fracture.

2) Weakness - Ignition🔥

  • AKA has 30 units of Ignite Trauma. At max trauma, AKA will take 75% more Fire DMG, get ignited and lose anti interrupt. 
  • She also has an innate 25% more Fire DMG taken multiplier (based on Arena)

3) Ice Cell
AKA's attacks apply Hypothermia that increasingly slows down and traps valk. But, her attacks are pretty easy to evade, so don't worry about it.

 

Nothing special about the first mob Lance Rider.


 RECOMMENDED TEAM 
 

DEA ANCHORA

Dea Anchora (DA) is the winner of this weather. Keep in mind DA's only ignite source is Charged Attack. Azure Empyrea, Shakespeare Adrift stigma, or Salvation of Sakura cross solves this issue.

 

Lineup examples:

 

OTHER FIRE VALKS

 

Valkyrie Gloria, Vermilion Knight and Flame Sakitama are all great options vs Rimestar, since AKA has high Fire vulnerability. Make sure to fill her trauma first before bursting.

OTHER OPTIONS

Non-fire valks such as Herrscher of Sentience and Herrscher of Reason might even work (depends on the disturbance and gears, supports, etc). Bring an ignite to take advantage of the weather, such as Ranger's Cross and Fireworks stigma

 

 GAMEPLAY EXAMPLES 
All gameplay shown below have around 355 Disturbance
