First of all, I would just like to say that this is not my guide. I did not create this and I don't claim owning this. In addition the strategy you'll see below is still a theory at the moment and it needs further testing. So, the original owner/poster of this guide encourage us to test this and prove that this is really working. By the way, the original owner of this guide is a redditor named JAS-M.
So, here's what JAS-M can say on how to deal massive damage to Golgoroth. He/she called it, THE GOLGOROTH SUPER CRIT THEORY!
WHERE IT STARTED
It has been confirmed that a high impact critical hit on golgoroth's back while standing on the pool of reclaimed light does massive damage. However, that would mean that you would also be taking golgoroth's gaze because you are shooting his back.
You get 10x damage with a critical hit to his back, and 10x damage for standing in the pool of reclaimed light. The damage with one sniper shot was around 600K without any modifiers (more on this later).
The goal is to have all but the current gaze holder (5 people) in the pool of reclaimed light and shoot him at the EXACT same time (firing squad style; with your highest impact weapon; Sleeper Simulants and snipers would be best. Rockets don't work.). Immediately after his back closes and begins to turn around, one of the 5 people standing in the pool will randomly get his gaze and needs to jump out and deal with the seeker axion bolts. The rest of the DPS team will get ready to SUPER CRIT again.
Titan Subreaker - Melting Point - On your way to the next pool of reclaimed light, you'll have the opportunity to punch him and activate this modifier to increase the damage of the SUPER CRIT.
Titan Defender - Weapons of Light - If you are part of the DPS team, place it between the first two pools that you will use so that everyone can have the modifier while setting up of the SUPER CRIT shot.
Hunter Nightstalker - Shadowshot - If titan's melting point is NOT active, then activate this right before the SUPER CRIT shot to increase the damage.
Potentially, with melting point and weapons of light, 5 guardians taking just one sniper or simulant shot at the exact same time could deal anywhere from 4 to 6 MILLION damage.
To employ this method with uttermost smoothness, my best suggestion would be to prepare to do golgoroth as normal with a 1-orb strategy with the gazer holder getting the initial gaze across the room from the DPS team. However, gaze holder would stay across the room to keep golgoroth's back exposed to the DPS team, and re-take his gaze as soon as possible after each SUPER CRIT shot.
- After the initial gaze is taken, your role will be to take down the first orb and prepare for the SUPER CRIT shot inside the pool of reclaimed light.
- After you SUPER CRIT his back, only the temporary gaze holder should jump out and deal with the seeker axion bolts (stay on the DPS Team's side).
- The 4 in the pit can take care of cursed thralls and drop the orb closest to them on that side.
- As soon as golgoroth's back opens back up, original gaze holder grabs the gaze once again across the room.
- Original DPS team of 5 get in 2nd light puddle, SUPER CRIT his back, and repeat the cycle until you have done this 3 times, then bail and reset.
ORIGINAL Gaze Holder
Get the initial gaze across the room from the DPS team. However, once you have gaze, stay across the room to keep golgoroth's back exposed to the DPS team. Deal with the seeker axion bolts until the DPS team SUPER CRITs golgoroth and takes the gaze away from you. Then, as soon as he exposes his back again, take his gaze back. Repeat this back and forth three times. On the last SUPER CRIT, you can even go help with adds if the taken are out by then.
TEMPORARY Gaze Holder
Everyone needs to check immediately after the SUPER CRIT to see who became the next gaze holder and jump out. You can tell you are the gaze holder if you acquire the countdown timer. Stay on the same side as your DPS team and deal with the seeker axion bolts until the original gaze holder takes the gaze back, then join the DPS down in the pit for the next SUPER CRIT shot.
To employ this method with uttermost smoothness, my best suggestion would be to do golgoroth as normal with a 6-orb strategy with gazers across from each other. We're just having the DPS team heading to the next pool of reclaimed light sooner and the INACTIVE gaze holder jumping down to also SUPER CRIT his back.
Your role will be to go from pool to pool, SUPER CRIT his back (newly ACTIVE gaze holder jumps out¤¤), wait for golgoroth to face you, and DPS his belly as normal until the INACTIVE gaze holder calls out to converge on his position. On your way to the next orb, help with cursed thralls and setup gamage modifiers for the SUPER CRIT (see modifiers below). This goes without saying that you still need to always have either one designated cursed thrall guardian, or have the entire DPS working to kill them to avoid deaths.
ACTIVE Gaze Holder¤
Immediately after the SUPER CRIT, his back will close and one of the 5 people standing in the pool will randomly¤¤ become the ACTIVE gaze holder. You need to jump out and deal with the seeker axion bolts. When 10 seconds remain, tell the DPS team to converge to the next pool of reclaimed light. Finally, begin to countdown at 5 seconds.
Meanwhile, the previous active gaze holder will become the INACTIVE gaze holder and needs to begin bursting the next orb across the room.
INACTIVE Gaze Holder
The off-duty gaze person bursts the next bubble quickly, jumps down to the pool, helps with cursed thralls while waiting for everyone to gather, and then gives the SHOOT command at anytime during the 5 second countdown (preferably, wait until everyone is ready). Besides the timed shot, continue DPSing until his back closes, of course (1 second window).
- Everyone needs to know how to do both ACTIVE and INACTIVE gaze duty.
- Everyone needs to check immediately after the SUPER CRIT to see who became the next gaze holder and jump out. You can tell you are the gaze holder if you acquire the countdown timer.
However, who gets his gaze could be less random (too early to tell). For example, if it happens to be that the first shot that crits his back always gets his gaze, then the gaze holder will be the one that always says SHOOT, obviously taking his shot as he is saying it, thus guaranteeing he will get the gaze.
