Cusith one of the Bosses in Death's GambitIt is an optional Boss located within the Burrows, and one of the holders of the three sigils of Caer Siorai. If you stand in-front of Cusith until it lowers its head, the prompt to pet it appears, allowing you to obtain Cusith's Crest and the Grace of the Gaian's aura.

Aeons ago, the children of Gaia entered an eternal slumber to commune with their long lost mother. Those who roam Siradon yearn to return to Gaian's Cradle where she sleeps, despite her heart being taken by the people of Garde Tum long ago.

There is an unseen realm created by the Gaian's dreamstate. Primordial and ever present, it's as real as the air around us. What would we see, if we were to tap into their dream?

Cusith

 

Attacks

  • Headbutt. Cusith puts its head against the ground, before rearing it up and headbutting Sorun, flinging him back on dealing damage. After reaching second phase, it fires a single energy orb from the Energy Barrage attack. 
  • Energy Barrage. Cusith shoots an orb of energy out of its mouth, temporarily electrifying the ground, three times in rapid succesion. The electrified ground can be blocked. Upon reaching second phase, the energy orbs create additional projectiles on impact.
  • Slam. Cusith rears back, then slams its hooves down, creating two waves of energy that travel across the floor of the arena.
  • Charge. Cusith charges forward and slams its front hooves down two times.
  • Dryad Spikes. Cusith creates wooden spikes that rise up throughout the arena. They can be destroyed by crashing down on a glowing sigil that appears.

 

Heroic Attacks

  • Heroic Energy Barrage. Cusith shoots an orb of energy out of its mouth, temporarily electrifying the ground, four times in rapid succesion. It additionally creates projectiles on impact. The electrified ground can be blocked. In their wake, they leave behind three orbs with gauges above them. When the gauges deplete, they erupt into highly damaging explosions. When these orbs are struck, they leave behind small bombs that quickly detonate. 
  • Heroic Headbutt. Cusith puts its head against the ground, before rearing it up and headbutting Sorun, flinging him back on dealing damage. After reaching second phase, it fires a single energy orb from the Heroic Energy Barrage attack. 

Strategy

  • Strangely, the electrified ground attack can be Perfect Blocked, allowing you to retaliate on Cusith herself.

      In the heroic mode apparently the projectiles spawned by the blasts travel through the wall to the right and hit Alistair, doing enough damage to cause his dialogue to play and occasionally the camera pans to him. (PC)

        Anyone know what is up with that underground bit of the arena? You can see it when you kill him and it zooms out. Looks like at some point that was supposed to be a place you could take cover but the devs decided against it and left it in for no reason. Couple that with the fact that they patched out getting on top of it for an entire different moveset and this is the lamest boss in the game from a development standpoint.

          You can interrupt his breath attack by targeting his fave with massive ranged attacks, he will blink and the attack will cancel.

            Have tested multiple time: Heroic version drops the +6 weapon of whatever weapon in your weapon slot 1. You can use him as another type of weapon upgrade farming simply by equipping your strong weapon in the 2nd slot and the desired weapon in the first slot. After killing him in Heroic, you will get your first weapon slot upgraded to +6.
