H2-0 spawns, a friendly mech:

Hey there! I'm a Hydrolizer model two, dash zero or, H2-0 for short.
I've been sent here to help you keep Anthracite under control.
I come stocked with a complimentary charge of water, you'll have to find more if you wish to take advantage of my Hydrolizing feature multiple times.

At the start of the encounter, Anthracite is On Fire, reflecting 100% of damage dealt to it and ticking significant damage as well with Smoldering Heat. Quickly turn facing away from Anthracite, then use the extra action button to Spray a jet of water at him, keeping him Cooled, which stuns him and causes him to take 50% more damage for twenty seconds. To use the extra action button again, kill one of the Ionized Waters moving about the arena and move through the cloud of mist they leave behind.

Anthracite can not be allowed to stay in the On Fire state for very long, so switch off of the elemental at least five seconds before the cooled debuff expires and start working on another Ionized Water, which has just over a million health.

Anthracite will require at minimum 100,000 DPS to beat the enrage timer, plus another million health more for each Ionized Water killed.


Defeating Anthracite awards the Brawler's Guild achievement Having a Brawl, signifying the victor's accession to Rank 9 in the guild.
