Though their beloved god was slain at the hands of the Warrior of Light, the Sahagin have wasted little time in mourning his passing. Drawing on the occult knowledge of the Ascians, the scaly beastmen have performed a foul ritual fueled by blood and sacrifice to bring forth the mightiest incarnation of Leviathan the realm has yet seen. Before the ocean deity can summon a tidal wave of catastrophic proportions, the Whorleater must once again set sail for open waters─and for victory.
— In-game description
Lord of the Whorl: Leviathan
Always keep an eye on Leviathan, no matter what else you're doing. If he vanishes, check for the geyser and run to the opposite end of the arena.
Kill the adds quickly. The Wavetooth Sahagin do nasty things if they live too long. The Gyre Spumes reduce the Elemental Conversion, which is required to survive Tsunamis.
Body Slam - The start point is signaled by a geyser animation. Leviathan will then emerge from the water and body slam the platform, pulling everyone towards that side. If you're too close, you can take damage or fall off entirely (when the railings are gone). When you see the geyser, run to the opposite end of the arena.
Spinning Dive - Also signaled by an identical geyser animation, plus water spheres falling from the sky. Take note of where the geyser is, Leviathan will leap from that point in a straight line across the arena. If you are in his path you will take damage and be pushed (if the rails are down, you'll go off the edge)
The railings are up in this phase, providing a safety net if you miss the Body Slam or Spinning Dive. Leviathan dives into into the water after taking 10% damage, does a Body Slam, and then splits into the head and tail. Veil of the Whorl means the head reflects physical ranged damage, and the tail reflects magic damage. Melee is fine for either.
Rotation: Wavespine – Spinning Dive/Slam – Wavetooth – Spinning Dive/Slam – Gyre Spume – 1 DIVE (On Converter) – Tsunami – Slap ->
<- Tsunami – Railings Break – Slap – Wavespine – Spinning Dive/Slam – Gyre Spume (MDPS LB) – Wave Spume – 1 DIVE (On Converter) – Tsunami – Slap ->
If you make it to the second Tsumani in this phase, you will wipe. Focus on killing Leviathan.
<- Tsunami – Wavetooth – Spinning Dive/Slam – Wavespine (Ignore) – TSUNAMI!!
