How to Beat Baal

At the beginning of the quest, players will have to fight Baal, the Electro Archon.

Baal focuses on melee attacks and large AOE Electro attacks.

Using a Polearm, her reach is incredible.


Unfortunately, there is no way to win the battle.

The goal here is to survive as long as possible.

At some point in the battle, Baal will disable all a player's character Visions, with only the Traveler able to use their abilities if they are in the party.

The battle will last a bit longer before Baal finally goes to place a final blow to the Traveler.
