New Anniversary Additions:

World Boss: The Patchwork Horror


A new golem world boss has been added to Kaidan! The Patchwork Horror is the first of its kind: An evolved creature with all three AEGIS shield types (psychic/cybernetic/demonic). The one thing to watch out for is his cast of Ad Nauseum Overload. This will stun you for a number of seconds based on the number of stacks you have of The Tube Also Stares Into You. To avoid stacks of this debuff you can turn around and not face the boss. Upon killing The Patchwork Horror, a mission will be awarded with a new reward bag!
