The Pool of Tribute (Extreme) Text Overview
By Kiri Kotone/Yume - Stellarium «Star» of Gilgamesh

This guide is very late, but serves to help new players tackle EX Primals.

Mechanics:

After Phase 3, the arena is divided into two sides, the east and west. Standing in the middle will give the player the Sinking debuff. If the debuff resolves, the player instantly dies.

Assail
A non-casted physical tank cleave that does heavy damage. Mitigate as necessary.

Churning Deep
Inflicts a debuff on 4 random players. Players will take heavy damage and be inflicted with a Lightning Resistance Down debuff if they are moving or taking an action when the debuff resolves. "Rise, rise to the occasion" is the audio cue for Churn.

Yata no Kagami
Marks a random non-MT player. After a few seconds, he knocks them back. This is often accompanied with other mechanics that force players to have precise positioning. "The seas part for we alone" is the audio cue for Yata no Kagami.

Seasplitter
Creates a large AoE to the sides of the Yata no Kagami marked player. Standing in the AoE when it resolves will knock a player up, deal heavy damage, and inflict a Lightning Resistance Down debuff. The very middle and outsides are safe.

Brightstorm
Places a stack marker on the Yata no Kagami marked player. Stack to share damage.

Rasen Kaikyo
Places AoEs under random players. Inflicts Lightning Resistance Down and deals heavy damage if hit.

Yasakani no Magatama
Susano creates a lightning cloud at a random position at the outside of the arena.

The Parting Clouds
The lightning cloud casts a line AoE towards either a Yata no Kagami marked player or the second player marked with Levinbolt.
  • If Yasakani no Magatama is cast (the storm cloud appears) before Yata no Kagami is cast, the marked player should move such that the line AoE is not parallel to Seasplitter.
  • If Yasakani no Magatama is cast (the storm cloud appears) before Levinbolt is cast, the second marked player should move such that the line AoE does not block off the middle of the arena. "Hark you to the tumultuous heavens!" is the audio cue for this.
Active Time Maneuver
Interact with the Blade's Shadow to keep Susano's sword from killing the party. If the player dies, the party wipes. Inflicts a Slashing Vulnerability Down debuff so the same player cannot take the Shadow twice in a row.
  • Usually the tanks perform this mechanic, with the current MT going first and current OT going second. However, healers can perform this mechanic as well.
  • Repeatedly press any button to prevent the blade from killing the party.
Ame no Murakumo (add)
Susano's blade, which becomes an add to kill. Killing this add will remove all Shock orbs.

Sheer Force
Light magic AoE damage while the Active Time Maneuver is going on. Repeats every five seconds.

Shock
Four orbs spawn along the outside of the arena that slowly move towards the player performing the Active Time Maneuver. A tank should collide with each orb sequentially starting from the Northeast, taking heavy magic damage. Mitigate as necessary.
  • With good DPS, it is not necessary to take every single orb. If the Blade add dies, all orbs disappear immediately.
Ame no Murakumo
Susano's ultimate. Deals heavy damage to all players, and instantly kills any player standing in the middle line of the arena.

Stormsplitter
A heavy physical tank buster on the MT that cleaves and inflicts a Slashing Vulnerability Down debuff.
  • Tank swap during the cast. The OT must be careful not to stand in the cleave.
Levinbolt
Marks four players sequentially. After a few seconds, the marked player will take lightning damage, and all players the side of the arena they are on (including them) will take heavy magical damage (Electrocution).
  • The marked player should go to the opposite side of the arena to avoid damaging everyone with Electrocution.
  • Certain Levinbolts will also stun the marked player. The party must then move to the opposite side of the arena. Marked players should be careful not to get stunned in the middle of the arena. "Now cometh our part! Make way!" is the audio cue for this.
  • Tanks should position the boss such that half his hitbox is in the middle, allowing melee to keep uptime even if they are marked.
Ukehi
A high damage magical raid-wide AoE. Cast multiple times in a row, with the first cast being two AoEs and all sequential casts being three.

The Hidden Gate
Marks a player and gives them the Fetters debuff, preventing any action. Susano summons four Ama-no-Iwato rock adds that are moved around, one containing the marked player. The rock add containing the player must be killed to free them. "Earth and stone at our beck and call" is the audio cue for this.
  • The last lettered rock will always be the one to contain the player. Most of the time this is the last one on the enmity list, but if the letters reach around (rocks are lettered YZAB), it would be the second rock on the enmity list.
