Attacks

Name Description
Cursed Flames Applies the Curse effect which continuously reduces your current hp and maximum hp as long as the status is active.
Dimensional Door Teleports to your last known location.
Nectrotic Sphere Shoots a powerful necrotic ball with high damage and blast radius.
Nectrotic Vortex Absorbs both Summons to restore its health and you if in the vicinity.

Strategy

Melee
Try to aggro MindFlayer (MF for short) while near to a pillar. Once it teleports to you, start to wrap around the pillar through horizontal movement (side-stepping). While wrapping around the pillar your should hit into it and towards MF to damage it. This will require practice on pacing and positioning. Once MF summons his husks use your melee AoE (spin or leap) to deal with them. It's alright to disengage from MF but try to use your ability into the pillar for future practice.
Ranged
Aggro MindFlayer (MF for short) from afar. Depending on your distance it'll either shoot 3 Nectrotic Spheres then use Dimensional Door or use Dimensional Door immediately. Once MF starts casting the Dimensional Door animation begin to roll-jump and turn mid-air to shoot at MF who just teleported to your former location. Continue this method even after husks are summoned. Be conscious of the amount of energy you have left as you may need to roll multiple times to escape an encircling crowd of husks.
