This guide assumes you kill MAMA in under 50 seconds (p1 break). The CC-distribution greatly changes depending on the speed the party is going.

If there is any doubt about the kill time, go with the PuG version. The following guide assumes you are following the proposed CC-Distribution.

Skill usage

There is an invisible hitbox in the center of the arena allowing you to gain enough adrenaline for one Decapitate with only two critical hits!

Prestacking
  • Precast as in the video.
  • Get in combat as fast as possible to fill up adrenaline: Use Cyclone Axe against the invisible hitbox and weapon swap to mace.
  • Shortly before Mama becomes vulnerable, use Berserk and Bull's Charge for Peak Performance.
1st Phase
  • Tremor to CC.
  • Use Head Butt and Outrage to CC quickly.
  • Swap weapons.
  • Decapitate, Blood Reckoning, Decapitate.
1st Add

  • Head Butt, Outrage. In case your party goes too fast Head Butt won't be off cooldown. In that case you need a Superior Sigil of Frenzy on your mainhand axe.

3rd Phase
  • Stay on Mace to trigger Superior Sigil of Severance again.
  • Bull's Charge, Tremor.
