The Maid boss fight info

  • Health – 35,000
  • Squad limit – Four

The first and foremost danger here is Sisterly Love. She’ll swipe at your melee unit if this is active. The Maid boss’ initiative also skyrockets thanks to Vow of Chastity. The more you attack her, the more often she’ll go to the front of the timeline system.

Collection, meanwhile, fires at an eight-pointed pattern:

Phase transitions

At 80% health, the Maid boss enters phase two:

  • Vow of Poverty (reaction) – heals the boss for 100 HP whenever you move
  • Forbidden Love (reaction) – interrupts ranged attack and does 1,200+ damage
  • Deception (charged) – AoE damage with knockback

For phase two, try to avoid moving around too much unless necessary. Likewise, take note of Forbidden Love which could kill Soulsingers easily. As for Deception, it hits multiple tiles (seen below), but there are some safe spots near her.

At 50% health, the Maid enters phase three:

  • Vow of Obedience (reaction) – gain a bit of initiative anytime a Daughter does something
  • Lost Love (reaction) – interrupt any boost/buff and deal 1,200+ damage

The good news is that your squad of four will have a reinforcement once you bring the Maid below 10,000 health. That’s when the Mother spawns the Scythedancer Daughter.

She’s level 10 and at full health. She can continuously rupture the Maid’s armor and deal a ton of damage.


Tips

The Maid boss fight in Othercide relies heavily on careful planning due to her reaction skills that interrupt your attacks. Thankfully, The Maid’s interrupts can also get interrupted (so get your Soulsingers’ Intercepting Rounds to safeguard teammates).

Much later, though, the Maid will start buffing or healing herself based on the actions you take, and this is combined with careful placement so you’re not accidentally standing on a spot that leaves you open to damage. Once the Scythedancer joins the fight, though, you can make mincemeat of her.
