Troy's health is entirely comprised of flesh, and so a strong incendiary weapon should be used. He will go through several different phases, between each of them, he will fly back to Tyreen to power up; during this time, he is immune to all damage.

His primary attack involves him slamming down his sword, creating rings of phaselock orbs as he does. These will radiate outward from the point of impact and can be jumped over or dodged between. As the fight progresses, he will summon tinks and rakks to assist him in the fight. Due to their weak attacks and small health pools, they are best used as a way to gain a Second Wind.

During his final phase, Troy will surround his sword with a large pillar of rock before slamming it down. During the charge-up for this attack, he stays still, so his head is exposed. Additionally, his attack will not track, so it can be dodged if one moves fast enough.


"Very good. When you return to Sanctuary, please go to my lab first, I suspect that analyzer might be a missing piece in the puzzle I have been trying to solve."
"Back to ship, everyone. We have to find Nekrotafeyo."

Turn In: Tannis


  • Mission item: Eridian Analyzer
  • While the mission is active, the Phaselocked moon can be seen in the skies of Pandora, and it will remain permanently dark on the planet. This does not affect items like the Night Hawkin, whose effects change based on the time of day.
    • Moze's wristwatch will show the rapid advance in time. It takes about 6 seconds for one in-game hour to pass. This can be used to determine when the Night Hawkin will switch its element.
