    Sorry for my bad English first. If I do any wrong please tell me, thanks.

    I've tried to challenge Ephenia like five times, but in final stage, when the boss HP is under half, I always get the same issue.
    If boss uses teleport, it will be glitched, then no matter what I do, my game will crash soon. That really annoys me a lot.
    I always challenge boss only myself, I don't know what happen if I try with team or friend.

    Here is my record, suggest start from 11 mins, you can see the situation.

    11:12 boss glitched
    11:30 game crashed with no error

    All I've tried is reinstall game but no luck, please help and thanks.

    Matt explained before that it was due to a (might be off but) a huge server load caused by the boss after a certain timer was reached. IIRC it was 11+ mins after the boss fight had begun. They had seemingly fixed the issue in a previous patch (the one after elin came out) but it wasn’t fixed as to my knowledge (on my accounts too when i fought >11mins).

    Your best hope for now is just to party up with another person, bishop or SE, to make your life much easier and complete the boss under 11mins. I highly doubt it will be fixed soon as it has been like that ever since ephenia came out.

    If I remember correctly, it was explained that in order to get the teleport mechanic to work, what happens is a copy of Ephinea is spawned in the new location, but the old Ephinea still "exists", but is rendered invisible. So after many teleports, there are many "copies" lying around, eating up resources. From my understanding, this issue will not be "fixed" so long as the implementation remains this way.

    Perhaps the time limit should be reduced to avoid these crashes.
