The Shrike will briefly charge an orb of blue energy, which it will then throw at a Slayer. This can easily be evaded by dodging to the side. The Shrike has an obvious telegraph for this attack making it easy to dodge.

When the Shrike is enraged, the blue projectile will turn red, and will have a follow up attack. You may have to dodge twice in order to avoid both the projectiles coming at you.

Tornado Attack

The Shrike will jump back and summon a tornado that slowly moves forward, damaging Slayers in its path. If you are far away, you can easily move out of the way to avoid this attack. If you are close, you may need to dodge.

Booping the Shrike is a lot more important in Heroic as it receives a buff called Momentum every time it glides. This adds a stacking damage buff, which can only be reduced when the Behemoth is interrupted.
