Stratos - T1 - Fight Fire


Zone & Instance Info

Gather Zone: Stratos (off of PoTranq zone)
NPC Name: Warm Cloud Auger
NPC Location: Find path (CTRL-F)
 
Keyword to Enter:ready


Flag & Key Requirements

Zone Flag: None
Event Key: None
Group Mission: None
Event Flags: None
 
* Minimum to be Piggy/85'/pushed into raid: N/A.


Brief Event Overview & Strategy

Three groups of adds are up before event start.  Adds are South-East, West, North; not active but targetable.

When event is triggered a group activates.  We start with the South-East (SE) group of adds.

After all adds have been killed, two minibosses spawn: "Interminable Lightness of Being" (EAST) and "Sparing Heart`s Flame" (WEST).  Know your group number for this stage.

Once Interminable and Sparing die, "Wafting Heat Aftermath" miniboss spawns.

When Wafting Heat Aftermath dies, "Effortless Eruption of Spirit" miniboss spawns.  This miniboss spawns adds of random type.


Stage 1: Add waves

Reminders:
  • Except for the initial wave of adds; given we start with SE, the remaining West and North activate in random order
  • Adds are shuffled each event reset and not static.  Do not rely on /tar add_name0#
  • Inferno adds cast a big AE DoT + Blind on PLAYER corpses - Take rez quickly if you die please

The first two waves are timed.  The last wave we leave TWO adds alive for a brief breather to rez/rebuff any dead players and prepare for the miniboss stage.

Groups of adds located South East (SE), West and North.

CC: Enchanters MEZ - Inferno adds.

Assigned tanks for: Flame and Jopal adds.  Additional tank depending on setup assigned for Inferno adds to help CC and tank when time to kill.

Assigned point deflect/fort tank for each group of adds.


Tanks:

Do not use /tar add_name0# for your assignment.

Add assigns: Facing each cardinal location (SE, West, North), your assigned mob is from left to right as it relates to your assign order.

Example:

a_jopal_soldier - Soandso, Clown, PieFace, Rabidpanda

Soandso would set ETW accordingly; while facing SE, West, North, the first jopal on the LEFT.

Clown takes 2nd jopal from left.  PieFace takes 3rd, and Rabidpanda takes 4th jopal (not all areas have a 4th).

Deflect / Fort tanks:

We begin with SE location.  Deflect tank triggers by targeting a jopal and using the keyword: destroy.

There is a six second delay before the event begins from time of triggering.

Beyond the initial wave either WEST or NORTH will activate.  Each assigned deflect tank make sure you are in position before the next wave activates.

Healers:

Avoid Heal-to-Nuke spells, to prevent accidentally breaking MEZ on inferno adds that tanks/CC may have targeted.



Stage 2: Minibosses - "Interminable Lightness of Being" & "Sparing Heart`s Flame"

Two minibosses spawn: "Interminable Lightness of Being" (EAST) and "Sparing Heart`s Flame" (WEST).

Random type adds spawn in pairs; one per miniboss.  When only one miniboss alive only one add spawns.

BURN EAST miniboss: Interminable Lightness of Being

Applying sustained DPS to WEST miniboss (Sparing Heart`s Flame) by assigned groups -- Know your group number please.

Tanks: Tank your miniboss where it spawns.


Stage 3: Miniboss - Wafting Heat Aftermath

Casts a line of sight (LoS) AE Lingering Heat - 190k DD + MANA DRAIN (Caster PB, 750' AE range).

Casters & Healers - Hide behind the nearby trees. 

Casters come out into line of sight to DPS between the AE casts; trigger reminds you when AE is incoming.

Healers - Stay behind tree and position so that you're able to Splash to hit the raid just after the AE fires; trigger reminds you when AE is about to fire.


Stage 4 - Miniboss - Effortless Eruption of Spirit

Spawns adds of random type.

Casts two AEs:

Breaching Burst - 189k DD + DoT + AC debuff (Caster PB, 280' range)

Fiery Grasp - Target AE 222k + STUN (50' AE range)


Raid move EAST to campfire location beyond Breaching Burst AE range.

Tanks pull adds back to main raid.

Bards/Enchanters - Charm Flame adds and sick them on boss.

Enchanters - MEZ inferno adds as you normally do.

Reminder: Test/report whether jopals can be snared/rooted.  If so, we'll use that to our advantage.

MTO Tank boss WEST where it spawns.

Healers - MTO healers be in range of MTO at boss and time your heals to cover Breaching Burst.

Note: Fiery Grasp is a Target AE, short range.  Could be 1st person emote, unless there's a 3rd person emote we're currently missing due to range.  If you see an emote we don't already have covered, please report it and we can then investigate.  Thanks! :)


MA Kill order:

Adds (any stage): Jopals > Flames > Infernos

Stage 2 - Minibosses: Interminable & Sparing - DPS via MA1 and MA2 by group # assigns.  MA1 divert to adds when up.

Stage 3 - Miniboss: Wafting Heat Aftermath - DPS via MA - no adds.

Stage 4 - Miniboss: Effortless Eruption of Spirit:

- DPS via MA - divert to certain add types when up, except Mages/Necros stay on miniboss.
- CC charm Flame adds and sick on boss
- CC Mez infernos


That's it for now!

This is a preliminary write up, which will be amended accordingly based on our experiences and feedback provided by our raiders.

Random type adds spawn in pairs; one per miniboss.  When only one miniboss alive only one add spawns.

Both minibosses require damage to some degree otherwise their spells are cast more quickly.  Message on screen: Your opponent grows frustrated by lack of a real fight. Since it is note being harmed, it takes the time to cast its spells faster.

Furro - Prelim map of where stuff spawns. We had raid positioned in the center.

Second pic is the response from a jopal soldier once trigger word "destroy" is said. I have set up two countdown triggers based off that text. One for 1m 30 & the other for 3 minutes. I'm not sure how to post the triggers here, but I can always share them in game if necessary. I want to make sure the timers are exact however before sharing.

Tanks: Will create hotkeys based on add location. Example: ADDS Active MOVE NORTH; Soandso on Deflect

Raid will STOP DPS when we are down to 2 mobs giving raid time to position for the Minis.

Thanks for the diagram, Raiena.  I've included it in the strategy post.

Re: Start trigger

Yeah, I thought about making one as well.  If your trigger and timers work out, I'll base it off yours if you don't mind and then include in the tank trigger package.


Re: Stop DPS when down to 2 mobs

I don't mind stopping at two mobs.  One should suffice providing people are paying attention... /grin.  This duty can fall on MA to start warning early for DPS off.  As the raid becomes more acclimated to the event it'll be less of an issue killing the final one too soon.


See ya in game! :)

Re: Trigger

Yeah that's fine. If mine works out, I will share it with you and then you can include in package.

Re: Stop DPS when down to 2 mobs

I only put 2 mobs cause when we did it last week, the 1 mob was killed before fully set up. I figure 2 gives us room for those slacker clowns to pay attention  ;)
