If you get a Chest Bomb on you, move away from other players to stand under one end of the overhead log until it detonates. Avoid the bombs on the ground. Healer needs to keep an eye on players who get smashed by the Oaf.
Objective of Edit
Phase 1 Edit
Helix is riding atop of his . The Oaf will melee and will, once in a while, grab a random player and crash him into the wall. Helix will throw Sticky Bombs which will explode after a while. The Lumbering Oaf may occasionally throw Helix on a random player.
Phase 2 Edit
Begins after the Lumbering Oaf is killed. Helix will jump on the face of a random party member, riding him instead of the oaf. He will rapidly throw Sticky Bombs, so the ridden player must move so that the group can continue DPSing Helix without being hit by bombs.
Heroic strategy Edit
Helix will periodically jump on players during the fight. At this time DPS should focus on him until he goes back to the Lumbering Oaf. Before he goes back, he places a bomb on someone's chest. That person should stand under the log in the center of the room (the bomb knocks you up; the fall hurts more then the blast by quite a bit). No other visible difference other then increased damage.

- An interesting boss, he rides the back of a hobgoblin, and when he is killed, Helix then rides the back of a random player.
- The similarity of Helix's aggro quote is presumably in homage to one of the original Deadmines bosses, Rhahk'Zor. The battle itself, however, is reminiscent of the Mast Room's original boss: Sneed, who was fought on his shredder, and then fought by himself.
