    Larboard/Starboard reminds me of Brightblade/Darkblade of Tsukuyomi. When you first see the attack being cast, you're like, "Oh f***, what do I do? Where should I be?" And then you die... But after running it several times, you get use to it and have no problem reacting because you memorize the phases so you know when there's an important cast coming up that you need to pay attention to. Basically, it seems like the game these days tend to lean towards mechanics that have no indicators and relies on you memorizing what comes next.

    Something I want to point out about O12N:

    Tanks being at the opposite of each other works to reduce the tanks' damage taken from meteors, however the rest will take more damage if they stand close to middle rather than at the edge furthest from both tanks (in simple terms, triangle formation.

    Personal recommendation - place Omega M + F at the left and right side close to Omega Eye. The Eye signals where the laser goes through, meteors always land on tanks and Sagittarius Arrow always points in the direction of the Omega F tank.

    By having both tanks sit close to the eye left and right of the rectangle AOE, the other six players can run all the way to the other side of the plattform for minimal damage taken while the tanks' damage is easier to mitigate and recover. Arrow lines up with eye laser in a T-shape, vastly reducing the effective AOE area compared to arrow going through middle.

    TL;DR: Triangle formation similar to exdeath flare is recommended to handle damage easier; shield tanks and make them use fitting mitigation (if necessary tank stance - even high-end raiders consider tank stance for spot-on mitigation when needed).

Im 75% sure he's calling the direction of the attack, but i always doubt myself until the first attack goes out each time i randomly wind up there. Not that this applies to me with Omega. That one im positive he's calling out the attack.
    I'm a bit late - but you replied to me so I'll answer.

    It calls out where it will attack. Example;

    "Fore and Aft": fore obviously meaning forward, which means he will cleave front and back, so you stand to his sides to avoid it.
    "Port and Star": same as Alpha's "Starboard" laser - it essentially means "Left & Right" (nautical terms, god knows why), so you have to stand in-front or behind him.

    The similarity is how I low-key solved what I was doing wrong on my first blind visit to Omega3. Starboard (right): Yes? Move to its left. No? Move to its right. Repeat after spin-turn.

    I am one who uses the foundation of the key word Larboard = Omega's Left.

    Like i said, i know the attack and im always 75% sure i remember it right. Next time i randomly get TotF itll have been over 2 months since the last time i ran it. Ill still have that "oh shit" moment i always do. It just happens. When this was the current tier my experts dropped me into kugane or ala mhigo 90% of the time. Its why i have the yugiri mini and the reaper mount but not the coerlpaw mini.

    90% of the time I run 70-Dungeon-Roulette, it has pretty much always been TotF. Despite this, when fighting said boss and even when there aren't mechanics like Tapas to force movement and lower player awareness, most people I get in a group still fail miserably at dodging it, all because of the nautical terms being used rather than modern English. Neither TotF-2 or Om3 would be causing people issues if it simply said "LEFT" or "RIGHT". Not that I'm complaining or that it's an issue (unless they eat constant mechanics and end up over-stacking the +DamTaken debuff) --- point was simply that if people found TotF Fore/Aft/Port/Star shenanigans awkward, they surely won't enjoy StarboardLarboard given how unforgiving it is to anyone not rocking at least 365 gear as a non-tank.
