NPC Name: Praetor Garont
NPC Location: Find path (CTRL-F)
 
Keyword to Enter:ready


Flag & Key Requirements

Zone Flag: None
Event Key: None
Group Mission: None
Event Flags: Achievement: Di`Zok Royal Seal (12/12)
 
* Minimum to be Piggy/85'/pushed into raid: N/A.


Brief Event Overview & Strategy

Queen is up on the hill.

Two named Di`Zok Captains, each surrounded by a squad of Di`Zok adds.  Di`Zok adds are a mixture of different types.

Captains absorbed at HP%'s, 80, 60, 40, 20.

Sycophants spawn at timed intervals from the tunnel area.  Queen is invulnerable when Sycophants are up.

Puppets spawn at timed intervals and charm players.

From 40% onward, Queen casts Reflective Scale on herself every 30s.  Cast Eradicate Magic on Queen to remove her self buff please.

At around 10% the queen begins to summon her sokokar mount.  If the mount is not killed she flies away on it and the event resets.  There are 4 sokokar flying up above the raid.  If we kill one, she will summon another.  The summoned mount shows up on tracking.

Strategy:

We position Queen in a corner area.

Players, unless you are the current MT, please dodge the Flamesong of Ro AE DoT (use our trigger overlay, so you know when to avoid it).

Assist MA, kill priority: Warcasters, Menders, Soldiers, Blademasters.

Groups #2 + #3 and Necromancers, are sustained DPS on Queen.  But these two groups also help raid kill Sycophants when they are up (because we can't damage Queen otherwise), and help main raid against Warcasters, due to their AEs, we need them down fast to limit player deaths.  We also need you helping on adds at the initial event start.

We place a campfire in the location where tanks are dragging adds.  AE's are permitted and encouraged.  The goal in this area is to kill adds fast, keep pace.

Doomlight Emote: When emoted, run INTO TUNNEL.


Add Tanks:

You're assigned to adds by type, with overlap.  From there, you work out the /tar 0#'s.  There are two Captains, each has a squad of adds of a specific type.  When a Captain is absorbed, another spawns, and you pickup the appropriate adds.

* Important - Warcaster adds.  These are brutal because of the two AEs they do (DoT + DD, includes Stun + Mana Drain).

For Warcasters, we need you to initially engage them where they SPAWN, then wait for Smoke AE to fire, then bring to raid campfire.  This way the AE fires out of range of the main raid.


MT Lineup Note: Unless you are actively tanking Queen, you should be avoiding Flamesong of Ro.  Otherwise you're just distracting healers in group keeping you up with the DoT on.


Healers:

In addition to your regular healing and so forth, please maintain GHoTs as applicable, and be splashing regularly.  Especially important for splashes is during Warcaster adds.  Due to the AEs, we suffer the greatest number of deaths during these adds.

I noticed last night, that when we killed the first Captains last night, the Captains that spawned afterwards were different captains, with different adds.  It's my theory that there's 4 Captains total, each with their own sets of adds.  As we kill one, another will spawn.  Once we kill all 4 different Captains, then we'll be able to finally start damaging Queen.

So my suggestion would be to kill all of the initial adds, then kill ONE captain.  Kill the adds that spawn with the next captain, then kill another captain.  The kill the next spawned adds, then we should be left with 2 Captains up.  At that point we could kill both and begin damaging Queen.

Just a thought :)

Thanks for the feedback Kianara!

What you're suggesting may be possible.  Although based on our attempts last night, having got the Captains down and having them repop, our next logical step was to off-tank them, and just kill the adds and focus on damaging the Queen.

The various adds types suggests to me we should consider another approach which takes advantage of certain types being CC'able.  In other words, test whether or not more than x number of adds can be up at any given time.  For example, Blademasters are mezzable.  So we MEZ and HOLD those adds.  Given that the event changes add types each reset/add kill, it seems to suggest that maybe that's to force the raid to have to kill a certain set of adds to get a type to respawn that is CC'able in some fashion (also gives something for CC to do, and we know EQ devlopers like to give everyone a role on raids /grin).  This is something we can easily test.  If it's true, we'll end up dealing with less repops.  Obviously, some adds we can't CC and we'll have to set aside DPS to deal with, or just divert MA and kill them then resume on Queen.

Now, we clearly had issues damaging the Queen, but for all we know, we could have been attempting to damage the Queen while Sycophant adds were up, and we know the emote from our first run makes it clear that the Queen is invulnerable when those adds are up.  The problem I had last night was that being in the MTO group, I wasn't able to really see whether adds were up when we damaged the Queen, because I have to stare at HP bars.  I need to put myself in a non-key role, so I can better see what's going on.  But having said that, I'm sure others can chime in, yourself including perhaps and comment.

Considering we had around 40 in the raid, we managed to lock everything down and hold it together for a quite a long time.  This is a good thing, as it gives us time to explore different tactics.  I think our main focus should be ensuring that we can damage the Queen.  There's clearly a mechanic there, and it seems obviously related to the sycophant emote.  For our next run, here's what we'd like to try:

Off-tank both Captains.

Depending which add types are up, MEZ Blademasters, kill warcasters/menders/soldiers (unless we missed testing a CC method on these, we should retest root/snare for example in case, or someone confirm from a prior run).  If the resulting repop of those adds is more Blademasters, those we can mez, lock down and potentially deal with less repops.

After we're settled in, and OT'ing Captains, we take out any Sycophants that spawn, and then immediately put all our DPS on Queen to see if we can damage her in the window provided.

If this doesn't work enabling us to damage the Queen, we'll have to explore options with respect to the Captains.


Update - Saturday, February 18, 2017

Added Triggers to notify when sycophants spawn, and Queen is invulnerable.  Also added a trigger when Queen is vulnerable (sychophants dead).

There was a point when I saw Queen go to 99% for a little bit, and I am pretty sure it was before the first Captains were killed.  Although I may be misremembering exactly when it happened, she did definitely go to 99% at one point.

Ok, so my theory was a bust lol

But, here's the few notes I was able to get:

Each Captain spawns with a set add type, and set number of adds:

Ersar - 2 guards
Derest - 3 menders
Asendak - 3 blademasters
Seldar - 4 warcasters

At 80%, she eats one of the Captains and we get a Captain to respawn with their associated adds.  Going to guess this happens at 80%, 60%, 40%, and 20%

[Sat Feb 18 21:00:08 2017] Queen Velazul Di`Zok shouts, 'Useless! If you can't stop these invaders, I'll find someone who can! DIE, Di`Zok Captain Asendak!''

Maybe make a trigger to notify us of this, so we have a heads up of another one + adds spawning?

Aye, we'll have some updates before our next run, including various triggers.

I agree with your Captain to add types observations, we also noted the same.

We had a good run on that final attempt, getting Queen to 80% to see a Captain absorbed was helpful.  It may be she absorbs the one closest to her as well, and if so, that can be helpful as we can be strategic as to which Captain we move close to Queen in order to get rid of it in the hopes of spawning one that has more favourable adds to deal with.  For example, if we have Seldar up, we'd want to get rid of her and take our chances on the repop.  We'll explore it further next run.

There's some timing we can do on the AE DoT from queen, with respect to our healing, we'll add triggers for that next run.

Minisca tested snare on Menders, and confirmed they are snareable.  We'll possibly use that to our advantage as well.

Overall, given that we had around 44 in the raid, we made several strong attempts with progressive results.  We have a few more players close to finishing up their T2 flags, so hopefully by next week we'll have some extra bodies join us.

Thanks again for your feedback, Kianara!

See you in game next week,
-F

Trigger Updates - Friday, February 24, 2017

Two triggers added to the main package.  Updated Sycophant trigger, so it gives an early warning when they are about to spawn as well as when they spawn.

- Flamesong of Ro - AE DoT, overlay, to help avoid it before it initially fires by moving out of line-of-sight
- Captain Absorbed by Queen (nice to know when Captain absorbed, because another Captain + Adds spawns shortly after)
- Sycophant trigger updated for when they are about to spawn as well as when they spawn.

Update - Thursday, March 9, 2017

We've been making good progress on this event.  Our best run last week was 56% on Queen.

This event is one big DPS test.  Doomlight (emote), and Flamesong of Ro (Queen DoT cast), intervals appear to progressively get shorter over time.  So the longer we take the worse it gets.  This is why we seem to stall around the 56% mark, even prior to that you can see a noticeable slowdown on Queen. 

We need to increase our overall performance across the board.  Not just on the DPS front substantially, but in other areas as well.  Healers keeping our tanks and DPS alive and everyone reacting to their triggers.

Performance Reminders:
  • No one except the active MT should be getting the Queen's DoT (Flamesong of Ro).  It's avoidable with proper trigger reaction.  Each time you fail this, a healer has to divert their attention to keeping you alive, which is a drain on resources and a distraction.
     
  • Assigned constant DPS groups are on Queen, but they help on Sycophants and the initial event start adds.  Everyone else assists MA.
     
  • We kill adds at the campfire location.  This is to take advantage of AE Damage, and centralized healing (splashes, GHoTs, IoS's [ pulse healing ], etc.,)
     
  • React to the Doomlight emote.  Run to location is the TUNNEL.

Performance Goals:

A quick note in this area.  It's challenging events such as this that drive us to improve our game.  But it only works if everyone puts their back into it.  We want everyone to reflect on their performance each raid.  Take a few moments post raid, or in your downtime and parse out your personal performance and that of your fellow teammates.

In general, spell casts, whether you're a Healer, Caster, or even a Tank, you can parse out spell casts and glean the most useful information.

- Check the number of spell casts compared to your fellow teammates of the same class.
- Look at what spells they're casting versus what you are. 

Can you improve?  Can they?  Engage with them in a respectful manner and work on it.  If they're using one or more spells that you are not, and you don't know why, ask them!  Don't be shy.  Don't be offended if you think someone is trying to help you.  This isn't personal.  We're teammates trying to improve our overall game as a team.

Bug the Leads: (not to be confused with /rant like a clownface)

So really, if you're a healer and you cannot keep your tanks up in group, we need to hear about it.  let Dimbly know, or send me a tell if he's busy.  Perhaps the group you're in isn't sufficient (too tank heavy).  Or perhaps you're assigned to heal an Off-tank (OT), on a Captain (miniboss), for example and that tank keeps dying.  Let us know, so we can make adjustments.  When certain tanks always die, it can be lack of healing.  But when it's sporadic tanks, it can be errant adds (missed by other pickup tanks and/or those tanks died).  Either way, it helps to communicate information, then we can address it.

The same applies to healers in Caster groups and Shaman in melee groups.  We need to know when you're having troubles keeping your group up, and/or a particular member.  For melee, it could be something as simple as the player isn't reacting to an emote/trigger and taking unnecessary damage.

Player death has a huge impact on our overall performance.  When you communicate with leads, we can do our best to address the situations for the betterment of the team.

ADPS:

This is like a moon landing to get perfect.  The stars are not always going to align, but we can get it pretty close.  Things to look out for on the group level (non-MGB), are various AURAs, and stuff like Epics, Black Wolf etc.  When expecting certain ADPS and it's absent, there's nothing wrong with opening a friendly dialog with the culprit and figure out what's going on.  I say friendly, because there's no need to be a porch dick about it.  Remember, the person could have forgot to hit their AA/clicky, or was OOR due to an emote etc.  Lots of things can affect whether or not ADPS is cast.  We recommend working with people one-on-one, and see if you can get results/improvements, and if it seems like you're spinning your wheels, then let us know please. :)

Overall Tip, for everyone:

A B C = Always Be Casting. 

Always be using your abilities.  There's very few events where we need a burn at a specific critical time.  We need players using all of their abilities all the time.  This is probably one of the biggest mistakes (and I use that word in a nice way), that people make.  Saving discs is for the birds.  Use them, so they can be used again more often.


Trigger Additions

Some additional triggers added to the package:

- Doomlight, safe to return
- Doomlight, Players Targeted (overlay) - Targets four random players every 70s and timer progressively gets shorter, down to 15s intervals


Flamesong of Ro:

* Warning: Flamesong of Ro trigger is based on Queens SPELL CAST message.  If you have NPC Casts toggled off in Options -> Filters (ALT-O), the trigger WILL NOT FIRE, and you'll fail and get the DoT everytime.  If this trigger is not firing for you, check the filter setting.  Ask for assistance if you can't find it please.

Some ideas I got to thinking about after last night's raid.

Is doomlight connected to the Queen's dot? I noticed I didn't seem to get hit with doomlight except when I was getting hit alot by the dot. One of the achievements is for avoiding the doomlight, so there must be a way to prevent everyone from getting it?

Can you prevent the sycophants from ever arriving in the cave? I saw them running through the tunnels when I ran in there with doomlight on me, and they promptly agroed and tried to kill me. : P

Is there a way to prevent a captain from being absorbed? Is there a spell the Queen casts that can be interrupted?

Update - Thursday, March 23, 2017

A few additional strategy post updates and trigger additions.


Queen 40%:

The Queen starts casting Reflective Scales upon herself every 30 seconds starting at 40%.

Added trigger for when Queen casts Reflective Scale on herself.  Players can cast Eradicate Magic on Queen to remove her self buff.


Queen 10%:

At around 10% the queen begins to summon her sokokar mount.  If the mount is not killed she flies away on it and the event resets (as we saw on Friday).  There are 4 sokokar flying up above the raid.  If we kill one, she will summon another.  The summoned mount shows up on tracking.

[Fri Mar 17 19:01:57 2017] Queen Velazul Di`Zok begins to cast a spell. <Summon Emerald Sokokar>

Trigger made based on the above spell cast by Queen.


Queen - Tail end of event sometime:

It appears Queen casts Parallax Burn, at some point in the tail end of the encounter.  From my logs, the last four minutes roughly.  Spell details for reference:

Target: Caster PB
AE Range: 300'
Range Based Mod: 100% at 0' to 300% at 300'
Resist: Unresistable, No Sanctification
Reflectable: No
Focusable: No
Casting: 0s
1: Decrease Current HP by up to 110000 (275 HP per 1 Target Mana)
Text: Your power burns within you.


Immolating Breath:

I think we tend to lose our MT most often when they have both Immolating Breath 167k DoT (4 ticks), AND Flamesong of Ro 91k DoT (4 ticks), coupled with melee rounds.  Most of my attention is focusing on MT HP, and I see both on them at times.

It look like it's coming from Talendor (who is flying above us if I recall).  We can't see the cast message, but we know from who it's landing on:

We may not be able to avoid this on the MT, but maybe it's related to something, or we're missing an emote.

The definition of immolate means to kill or offer as a sacrifice, especially by burning.

From the above parse, it must have landed on the MT at least a dozen times (each tick is showing damage, but we can determine roughly how many times it was cast by the larger time stamp differences [ ranges from 55s to 147s ]).

Given that it's a dozen times, with the above data, I don't think it's related to the Captain "sacrifices".  Perhaps it's related to player deaths, but I'm skeptical.

From the logs, it doesn't seem to be hitting anyone else other than the MT.  So again, it could just be extra damage to increase MT risk of death, and there's nothing we can do about it.


Reciprocation of Breadth:

This spell is among the series of spell IDs for this event, according to the spell file.  In the logs, nothing is showing as casting.  Maybe it's nothing, or part of a mechanic.

Reciprocation of Breadth

Target: Self
Resist: Beneficial, Blockable: Yes
Focusable: No
Casting: 0s
Duration: 120h (72000 ticks), Extendable: No, Dispelable: No
1: Increase Spell Damage Taken by 25% to 30% (Before Crit)
2: Limit Target: Caster AE
3: Limit Target: Caster PB
4: Limit Target: Target AE
5: Limit Target: Directional AE
6: Limit Target: Target Ring AE
7: Limit Target: Type 48
8: Limit Target: Target AE No Players Pets

Reciprocation has a few meanings, but one of which is to respond, like to respond in kind.  Perhaps it's related to casting on Queen when her Reflective Scales buff is on.  I mean, for this to be on Queen, as a self buff, it kinda doesn't make sense, it would increase the spell damage taken.  Unless it appears when reflective scales is removed...  Anyway, totally musing here.  I'll try and remember to /inspectbuffs on Queen periodically to see.  I don't recall ever having the buff.





Some ideas I got to thinking about after last night's raid.

Is doomlight connected to the Queen's dot? I noticed I didn't seem to get hit with doomlight except when I was getting hit alot by the dot. One of the achievements is for avoiding the doomlight, so there must be a way to prevent everyone from getting it?

Can you prevent the sycophants from ever arriving in the cave? I saw them running through the tunnels when I ran in there with doomlight on me, and they promptly agroed and tried to kill me. : P

Is there a way to prevent a captain from being absorbed? Is there a spell the Queen casts that can be interrupted?

Re: Doomlight connected to Queens's dot.

I'm not sure, but Dimbly was thinking along the same lines as you on this.  I was interpreting the /ach as players not reacting to Doomlight would go on a list which would then fail us.  We've seen this before with similar emotes.  You guys could be right though.


Re: Sycophants

They spawn in the tunnel.  So I'm guessing you were emoted at around the same time a set spawned.


Re: Captain absorbing, prevention

I think it's scripted regardless.  But having said that, on Friday, I think we ended up having three Captains up at one point?  Maybe if a Captains HP is lowered to a certain point, it isn't absorbed.  Totally speculating btw.

In terms of adds.  I think we struggle the most with Warcasters.  Tanks could briefly hold them on pop where they spawn, count to 5 seconds before bringing them to the raid, and that would allow the Warcaster AE to fire and not hit the main raid.  That would help us avoid the initial inhibiting effects and damage.  We can also be splash healing a lot more during Warcasters, to cover the damage.  Further, I think it'll help if we have our assigned sustained DPS (G2 + G3 + Necs), peel off Queen and help us on Warcasters.
