When does Moake spawn?

Moake spawns on certain intervals within the week, along with the other field bosses. During these intervals, he will spawn every hour. You can use the Procyon’s Compass to see which times Moake will be spawning on which days. You may also set an alarm on specific days within your in-game Calendar to alert you once Moake is about to spawn.

Moake Attack Patterns and Tactics

Moake will cycle through his Green, Blue, and Red phases, dealing different elemental attacks based on his color.

Green Phase

  • Flash – Moake’s eyes will start glowing. They will then flash bright, sending cone-shaped blasts of light on both sides of his head. Anyone hit will also get stunned for a few seconds. Dodge towards directly in front of the head or near the tail to avoid the cones.
  • Caustic Fumes – Moake will spit out fumes in a cone shape both from his mouth and his tail. Move towards its side to avoid getting hit. This attack can happen in succession with the flash, so try to be aware of Moake’s safe quadrants.
  • Ground Slam – Moake will jump in the air, do a roll, and then crash to the ground. He can do this thrice, and can also do a crash having an additional mid-ranged caustic attack with narrow cones pointed towards Moake’s cardinal directions. Stay far away from him once he leaps up to avoid getting hit by the shockwave.
  • Body Roll – He will roll straight towards a direction for some distance. A rectangular marker will appear on the ground to telegraphs the direction where he is rolling. Avoid him as soon as the marker appears.
  • Tail Whip – He will turn his whole body to whip out his tail at a wide area. A semi-circle marker will appear on the ground to indicate the unsafe area. Avoid this area once it appears.
  • Breath and Beam – He will curve his tail to face forwards and will shoot out his breath and beam from his mouth and his tail, respectively; his head sweeping from left to right, while his tail from right to left. Dodge away from his front side and go near his body to be safe and to be able to land some hits.
  • Caustic Blast – He will charge for a bit and send out a shockwave. A red marker will appear on the ground shaped as a ring. Avoid the ring outwards, ot head to the safe spot in the center to avoid the shockwave and land some hits.
  • Sun Blast – Moake will raise his tail to summon beams of light on random spots nearby. After a few seconds, each spot will have a single line run through it, which will then explode a few moments after. Avoid the light pillars and reposition at safe spots once the light lines appear on the ground.

Blue Phase

Most of the attacks in this phase area the same with the ones from his Green phase, except for ranged attacks that now inflict Freeze.

  • Freeze Flowers – Moake will summon four flowers around him that have a freezing aura. Staying inside these auras will inflict stacks of Freeze, and with enough stacks, the player will be Frozen for a few seconds. These flowers can be destroyed to dispel the aura.
  • Freeze Beams – Similar to the Breath and Beam attack, but it can inflict Freeze.
  • Frozen Blast – Moake will raise his tail high as it sucks freezing air towards it to charge for the attack. He will then let out a huge blast around him, sending nearby players flying outwards. Either everyone tries to stagger him to prevent the blast, or just run away from the explosion range.

Red Phase

Most of the attacks in this phase area the same with the ones from his Green phase, except for ranged attacks that now inflict Burn.

  • Flame Flowers – Similar to the Freeze Flowers, but the flowers not spit fireballs that leave lingering flames on the ground.
  • Ball and Beam – Similar to the Breath and Beam attack, but he will spit out red orbs from his mouth and both attacks can inflict Burn.

How to Defeat Moake in Lost Ark

Make sure there are other players are present to assist you in defeating Moake, as it is an end-game boss built for group combat.

There are various different types of area-of-effect strikes that you should be aware of when fighting Moake. Tips on how to overcome most of Moake’s attacks, which you are likely to experience during the raid, are listed below:

  • When blue triangles appear all around Moake, it means an attack is about to happen. The light beams that arrive after a short delay cause damage to everyone in the vicinity and cast a temporary debuff. In these zones, you’ll be safest if you avoid them.
  • The boss will be surrounded by a number of red triangles. After a little wait, green light beams will appear and inflict harm on everyone nearby. Two triangles appear in front and behind Moake in a similar attack, and then green and purple light flashes.
  • Any player in front of Moake will be hit by the boss’s charge.
  • The flower on the tail of Moake will emit a beam that will injure anyone who comes into contact with it.
  • Moake will be surrounded by a half-circle. Upon a brief wait, Moake will swing its tail about, doing damage and causing interruptions to all players in its path
  • There will be a huge circle encircling Moake. Any player caught in its path will take damage and be disrupted for a short time after it has finished charging.
  • Lightning assaults will be indicated by the appearance of blue and red rings around the boss.

Moake Tips and Strategies

  • Party up with other people in the area to maximize your buffs and shields that can be shared within the party.
  • Since Moake is a field boss, anyone can die without any limit. You can use your Phoenix Plumes or just respawn on the Triport in the Aira Pond as it is just nearby. Just make sure to activate the Tripod beforehand.
  • Do not stray away from the fighting area or else it will reset Moake and his HP will be back at full health. If he is aggro on you, move towards the center of the area, otherwise tell the other players through the Area Chat to lure him back to the middle. The fighting area’s border is shown as a flame-like ring on the ground. You can also check near the bottom right corner of Moake’s HP to see if the “Reset Imminent” alert is flashing.
