- This particular boss can be a frustrating annoyance. With its combination of Flurry and Distracting Blow it can repeatedly interrupt any spell caster, as well as any of the more skill-oriented Warriors.
- Spellcasters should bring neutralizing spells such as Blinding Flash or spells that cause slowness. Mesmers can bring Empathy, Wastrel's Worry and Spirit of Failure.
- This boss is identical to Flash Darkspine.
