Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch  Raid Guide


The ultimate goal is to kill Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch. Inside the room you’ll see 2x Mastruq Beast Warden and 6x Bearer’s of X. Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch and the Bearers are all perma-rooted. Mastruq Beast Warden’s are not perma-rooted but can be killed one at a time.

Each Bearer gives Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch a specific power up. Due to this you’ll need to kill the Bearers before engaging Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch. There’s a pool of 12 different types of Bearers that can spawn, but only 6 will be up at a time. The Bearers will respawn after a period of time in open world (5 minutes?). You’ll want to keep them dead as you burn down Ancient Cragbeast Matriarch. Some of the Bearers buffs may pose a bigger problem than others.

In an Agent of Change instance the Bearers do not appear to respawn at all, making the event quite trivial in an instance. Mastruq Beast Warden’s do not respawn.
