RS3 Yakamaru Guide For Newbies
Yakamaru can be considered the 2nd boss in The Liberation of Mazcab raid, with up to 10 players participating in the same battle. Although the fight itself have many mechanics and sections that require collaboration of players. However, with a little knowledge and practice and communication between your teammates, it can become a quite enjoyable and easy boss encounter.
This guide is intended to teach the basic mechanics of Yakamaru. It will also discuss strategies, tips and tricks to help you make your first kills , and even more. Since this is a mechanically intensive group battle with a lengthy guide, it’s broken into a few sections (all connected in The Table of Contents) for easier navigation:
To know what the roles are and what each one does, go to the roles at Yakamaru.
To know more about Yakamaru’s attacks and pool mechanics, check out Auto Attacks, Special Attacks and Pool Mechanics.
Go to the Fight Overview for a quick overview of the fight. Fight Phases for more details.
In the battle with Yakamaru It’s unlikely to see him move about much, and he’ll just be jumping between the pools as his health begins to decline. The room will be made up of pools that indicate the phase in which Yakamaru begins to employ the different attacking techniques and styles. There will be five phases in which you need to endure, and do nearly 5,600,000 of damage.
Yamakaru will only be playing with players within the 20×20 radius of the area, and Yamakaru won’t attack with any type of Melee attacks, as it only employs Magic moves when within a Melee area. Once you’ve covered a distance of a few tiles, you’ll start to be attacked by Ranged instead which is a form of tentacles rising from the ground. You can counter it by using Devotion and Debilitate in the fight to take in lesser damage.
If you’re focused on being an DPS player, ensure that you’re standing at an appropriate distance from it. Also, since the accuracy for the boss can be exceptionally high, you should be prepared beforehand with the help of top defensive gear. Sure, there are a number of attacks that may not be successful however it doesn’t mean that the following attack will so be missed. Always remain focused. If you’re describing your player as a tank, then put on the most effective defensive gear you have and take it on from a melee range to ensure positive results.
Refusing the Battle
If you’re feeling like you’ve had enough and that there’s a danger to your life, you can quit the fight. A message will appear on your chat box stating how Yakamaru believes you’re an insufferable coward. The messages will differ based upon the particular situation you’re in. The message that is displayed is ‘Yakamaru is not happy with your self-defence, and will shoot dangerous projectiles in your direction and will shoot you with deadly projectiles!’. It could result in 2,000 inflicted damage on your persona. The only way that you could actually exit the battle is to either leave the group you’re part of as well as asking your boss to do this.
Roles of the Team
You can choose to adopt various roles when fighting Yakamaru. For example the base Tank serves as the primary attack for the boss and is the one who deals the most damages to team members. You can also choose to become the Poison Tank and deal Yakamaru’s poison at the end of every pool and reflect it back. You need not worry because the person playing as a Support role assists the Poison Tank when the boss has been poisoned by the Poison Tank. There’s also the North Tank who inflicts damage to the boss, and that’s the Shark Tank that shows its real potential during the mirage stage.
If you’re ready to go with DPS and Yakamara, then go at it with all you have Do not worry about the damage you inflict, as it’s all about performing your rotations correctly. In the pool with sharks, move to the northern side of the tendril to get away from the most damage from the sharks or plank it up. For the sand-filled pool, concentrate on freeing players who are trapped in the hands to avoid serious injuries. For the beautiful pool, you can use stun to block effects that could affect melee and magic specs.
If you’re willing to go to Poison Tank, your role is to grab poison from the top of each pool and reflecting it back to Yakamara. In contrast, if you choose to go to the Support position, then you have to aid with the Poison Tank once he/she has successfully reflected the poison back at the boss.
If you’re deciding to go to Sand Tank, you must work in a similar manner that you would Base Tank in the moment the mirage phase starts. But, if you do not intend to be a tank in this phase it is possible to become a full DPS and perform the pool duties. It’s a great option to help the DPS players when they’re done with the tendrils and sharks.
If you’re going to take on Shark Tank, you must keep the focus of mirages toward you and away from the DPS. There’s no reason to tank, so you’re free to inflict as much damage in the way you want to. Meanwhile, the Stun DPS will be focusing on the stunning pool when it is revealed.
