Lost Ark – How to Defeat Dark Legoros Guardian Raid Guide

A guide on how to defeat Dark Legoros in Lost Ark.

Lost Ark Dark Legoros Raid

Dark Legoros is a boss that players can challenge in the Guardian Raid in Lost Ark. It is a variant of the Icy Legoros from the level 1 raid, but it uses the shadows to its advantage and inflicts a debuff that impairs anyone’s vision.

Dark Legoros is not much of a tough fight even when you have just started working on your Tier 2 gear, but its blind mechanic can be pretty annoying and time consuming if not countered.

In this guide, we will look into Dark Legoros’ attack patterns, and share some tips and strategies on how to quickly and easily clear this raid.

How to Unlock Dark Legoros Raid

How to Unlock Dark Legoros Raid in Lost Ark

To Unlock Dark Legoros Raid, you will first have to unlock the Guardian Raids by just progressing through the main story, then finish the main story in the Yorn Continent to get the appropriate gear. Then, you will have to defeat all of the level 1 and level 2 raid bosses.

Finally, reach iLvl 802 to be able to enter the Dark Legoros raid; finishing Yorn’s main quest will unlock the Yorn Chaos Dungeon where you can get Tier 2 gear that will help you reach the required iLvl.

Dark Legoros Mechanic

Dark Legoros can inflict a darkness debuff in some of its attacks. When hit, a player’s vision will be limited as the area around starts to go dark. This debuff can stack 5 times and can limit the player’s vision to only the near melee range on max stack.

Players can use a Panacea to remove the debuff, though it’s recommended to only use one when enough stacks have been applied. Alternatively, a party member can use a skill with a party-wide cleanse to remove the debuff.

Dark Legoros Attacks

Claw Slash

Dark Legoros will turn its body towards one side as it drags out its claw from the other side to do a wide front slash.

Dodge away as soon as it makes the turn animation and pay attention if there’s another incoming claw slash before re-engaging.


Dark Legoros will crouch down and charge straight to the direction it is facing.

Simple sidestep away from the path of the charge to avoid getting hit. In this attack, Dark Legoros can sometimes glow blue, signaling that it can be countered with a counter skill while it’s crouching.

Blinding Breath

Dark Legoros will move its right arm to change its stance and blow out a dark breath in a cone in front of it. When hit, a player will get a darkness debuff. A variation of this attack is when it steps back and then blows the dark breath.

For the first variation, dodge towards its side to avoid the cone. On the second one, you can either dodge away, or follow it as it steps back.

Blinding Rain

Dark Legoros will charge its energy and stand up on its two hind legs. Blinding rain will then start to pour down in a large ring pattern which gradually grows smaller and closer to Dark Legoros. Getting hit by this rain will inflict a stack of darkness debuff. Dark Legoros will then do an AoE blast from its body once the rain stops.

Once it charges for the attack, stay close to its hind legs as no rain will fall on that spot. Immediately dodge away once the rain stops to avoid the succeeding blast.

Blinding Geyser

Dark Legoros will jab its tail on the ground. Circle markers will then appear around it that explode after a few seconds. Getting hit by the explosion will inflict a stack of darkness debuff.

Once the tail is on the ground, go to the spot behind the tail as there will be no geyser that will spawn on that spot.

Dark Legoros Raid Tips

  • Bring the essentials like HP potions, Panacea, and Flares.
  • To make things super easy, include someone who has a party-wide cleanse skill that can be used often. You won’t have to worry about the darkness debuff, plus you can save on using Panaceas.
  • In playing solo without any cleansing skills, then use a Panacea only when you reach max stack for the debuff as it only gets bad when you reach around 4 to 5 stacks.
