      • Citadel Siege can be avoided if the target is at sufficient distance from Arch-Ultima (start running at 50%, then drop him to 49%, etc.; maintain some proximity to avoid being drawn in). Citadel Siege will be skipped if Arch-Ultima is in the process of readying Citadel Buster.
    • <50% HP Citadel Buster: 30' AoE severe light elemental damage
      • Citadel Buster is preceded by a warning countdown starting at 30 seconds ("30...") and continuing to warn players at various intervals. Current hate target will continue to be drawn in during this time, but other actions will cease.
