The Archon Hunts in Warframe are finally here thanks to Veilbreaker. Bringing with them very challenging boss encounters with the Archons from the New War. Here is a very simple guide on how to kill Amar easily if you are having trouble with him.
Quick and Easy Kill for Amar
Amar is a bit more mobile than Boreal. So always keep him marked by placing a waypoint on him so you don’t lose sight of him. This is especially crucial for his special ability. Where he creates a crowd of himself to trick the player. If you have him marked, or pay attention to your mini-map, you can find the real Amar easily and continue the fight.
There is a similar “summon enemies to take down to keep fighting him” phase. But these sentients are not difficult to take down in the slightest compared to the ones Boreal summoned. So just be quick about taking them down and keep on fighting Amar.
After he reaches half health, he will retreat and you have to take down two Deacons and use their Veils to open the way. Remember that you need to take down the enemies surrounding the Deacon to damage it. This will lead to a final encounter with Amar and the mechanics will not change.
Here is my setup if you need to do this quickly:
- Harrow, built for a balance of duration and efficiency.
- Laetum with the up to 1200% damage evolution in the final tree. Built for corrosive and radiation from the incarnon form.
- Phenmor with the 2000% damage evolution. Built for radiation and heat.
- Use Xata’s whisper from the helminth system.
Watch out for a guide for Nira as she comes into the game in the following week. If you need a guide for Boreal in Warframe, you can find one here. Be forewarned that you cannot revive or use items as much as you can in normal missions. So play it safe during the hunt!
