When is DN “toppled” in p1 of Sith raid?

So a couple guild mates and I notice that Nihilus’ cooldowns seem to jump around quite a bit in p1.

According to the information summary, DN gains one bonus action whenever he isn’t toppled. However, I personally can’t tell when he IS toppled, as there isn’t a “weakening” animation like there is in other phases and other raids. I kind of assumed he is toppled when Assassin and Marauder are defeated, is this the case?

Also, has anybody else noticed how his cooldowns seem to jump/decrease quicker than they should? I feel like I’ve seen a counter of 3 on Annihilate and seem to trigger in one sequence of events without any of my toons taking any actions. I KNOW I’ve seen it trigger many times in one sequence when the counter is at 2, and same for his Drain Force ability.

Has anybody out there experienced this, and can anybody clarify when DN is toppled? Thanks a bunch in advance for everybody’s help

  • Nihilus does not get toppled in p1, his basic removes buffs, which speeds up the cooldown on annihilate as well as force drain, that's likely where the cooldown jumps are coming from that you noticed.

    His other special will reduce the cooldown on Annihilate by one per living minion, too. So if you're ignoring them, that'll cost you.

    Ok I think I got it, thanks folks

    A little confusing that they’d put in a description of his behavior when not toppled when he never topples. Oh well, live & learn
  • There is no way to topple the AAT in phase 3 either. The main gun fires regardless of what you do. DN phase 1 is a mess if you muck around.

    Moved to Sith raid sub forum.
  • Thats just the generic fearsome foe description. There are many situations where you cant topple that raid boss. P1 and 4 of pit. P1 and 3 of haat. All of them apart from p3 of sith raid.
