Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning is one of the bosses that were introduced in the 1.5 updates. Abyss Lectors are part of the Abyss Order. They can manipulate abyssal energy. They chant malefic poetry of the Abyss to access their power. This boss looks cool, and at the same time is a bit hard to defeat. In this guide, we will be taking a look at how to defeat Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning.
General Info On Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning
Abyss Lector is on the Spiral Abyss on the 12th floor and the 3rd chamber. Lector does slightly resemble a Herald, as they have the almost same height, but he doesn’t use blades in battle.
Also do note that Lector will be an enemy that you approach in the Spiral Abyss. So, you will get a new challenge that the Abyss gives. So make sure to prep for that challenge too.
Tips On Defeating Abyss Lector
Avoid Getting Hit
Make sure not to get hit, as there are major drawbacks if you think you can tank through the attacks. Each hit from the attacks of Lector decreases your Energy for Elemental Burst. Shields are a good option when fighting against him.
Use Cryo & Geo Attacks on Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning
He is very able to create shields when you fight him for the second time. The shield pops out when his HP gets below a certain point, meaning that when his HP is low, he will bunker. So, to break the shield, attack it. But, if you can use Geo or Cryo attack, they will do the jobs much better. In such a scenario, Ganyu or Zhongli will be able to help you a bunch.
Attack Patterns Of Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning
As his title might suggest, he is an electro user, so brace for electro-based attacks.
In this attack, Lector charges up and makes a shockwave. This shockwave is similar to how Childe enters phase 2. So, to dodge this attack of his, keep distance, and try attacking from afar.
Orbs Of Lightning
In this attack, he spawns in three electro balls and targets you. Granted, he will attack you with each ball one at a time. So, you will have to be daredevils. Dodging at the last second will be preferable.
Wheel Of Lightning Orbs
In this attack, as the name might suggest, Lector spawns in a wheel of lightning orbs that surround him. These orbs then spread out and deal damage to your character. The only way to dodge this attack will be to run away from him for your dear life if you are low on health.
Line Of Thunder Strikes
In this attack, again, as the name might suggest, Lector summons continuous thunder strikes in a straight line aimed at you. To know when this attack is approaching, take note of his book. If the book closes, this attack will be coming.
Abyss Lector: Violet Lightning is a good boss. Granted, he does look a lot like a Herald, but his skill set is way different. For me, Lector is somewhat of a difficult enemy, but all is possible, so try-hard. Happy Gaming!
