Strategy Writeup

The boss acts very similar to the elite that can be found inside the Corsus dungeons. You will hear a sound, and he will start shifting towards you to perform an attack. After some time he will fade and start running across the room while illusion attack you. Illusions can be killed with a single hit but will conjure a projectile that will deal damage. You can also dodge roll into the illusions (The ones that walk towards you) and avoid both damage and the projectile. His weakness is his head so try to stay near him and make as much damage as you can. When he fades, his head will remain visible and you can attack him.

Try to stay near him the whole fight and don't lose his track. Avoid his illusions if possible and don't attack them to prevent the ranged attack. When he jumps into the sky attack one illusion at a time and try to find the original. Attack him until he falls and repeat.


Attacks & Counters

Attack Counter
Phase 1 (Melee)
Shifting Attack: You will hear a sound, and he will quickly come next to you and perform a charged attack that deals high damage. Wait until he is next to you and doge to the side. Use the opportunity to strike back.
Three Hit Combo: He will perform a quick three hit combo while moving forward. Run in circles around him and wait for the attack to finish.
Summon Illusion: He will summon an illusion that will attack you using his three hit combo. Run away from the illusion to prevent the damage.
Phase 2 (Faded)
Multiple Illusions: While he is faded, many illusions will appear chasing the player. Try to ignore the illusions and chase the boss.
Phase 3 (Floating)
Float Attack: He will float upwards and then disappear. After a short time, many illusions will appear. After a relative long time, the boss will land creating an explosion that deals very high damage. When you shoot the illusions you will get a glimpse of where the real boss is. Once you find the real one, keep attacking him to cancel his attack.

        If you use Very Good Boy, the dog will only chase the real Dream Eater, and it can even hit the boss from the ground when they float in the air to charge up the insta-kill move.

          Hit him with the devastator alt or any other Damage over time alt fire.
          That way you´ll be able to easily keep tabs on him once he goes airborne

            I noticed that when he flies into the air, when you pop his illusions the real one flashes for a second. And you can see the flash through walls, which helps.

            Also, Spitfire is a godsend on this fight. Not only does fire mark him when he flies into the air, but his illusions have no HP so a tiny burst with it will drop them. Instead of needing to run and dodge his illusions, you can farm them for ammo while chasing him.

              If you struggle to tell which ones him when he flies into the air, pop hunters mark at the centre of the room, he's the only one not outlined

                If you're struggling to track him or dps here a piece of advice : Use the bandit's set combined with the devastator and the spitfire. His weak point is big enough to focus it with the crossbow and up your mods with the nice damage input. Then use the bleed and the fire to deal an impressive amount of damage. It also makes it easier to track as said in comments. But you can not inflict bleed or fire status while he's invisible (it never work for me at least). To speak about the two different types of illusions, the blue ones are inoffensive until they reach you in close range. Try to kill it with a single bullet from the spitfire and just walk perpendicular to the blue projectile it launches. It's enough to dodge it. The violet illusions manage to combo in close range and they are doing more hits according to the boss health (the more low it is, the more combo hits they will do). Two dodges and a sprint in the opposite direction are enough to avoid taking damage. While the boss is in the aire, if you got a bleed spike and your flamethrower max stack, you won't need help to bring him down alone even in a three party member.
