Brief Event Overview

Friendly coldain citizens need protection from waves of giants.  If too many citizens die the event resets. 

Friendly NPCs are controllable to a degree by issuing commands to Zrelik the Brave.

Each stage has a giant boss with a special mechanic along with AEs and sometimes adds.

Bosses spawn at one of the random static locations throughout zone for each stage.


Strategy

Assist MA.

Assigned tracker call location of boss.  Assigned puller (a bard if we have one), to pull the boss to base camp (riverbed at campfire near start NPC).

Boss   Strategy
Koldan Wallbreaker   When emoted get inside BLUE RING AREA; close to boss
Player death outside the blue ring causes "a restless hero" penalty add spawn
Tanks:
- Four "a restless Kromrif" adds
- Dry tank wolves; mezzed, until time to kill
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
CC:
- Mez wolves (a restless dire wolf)
- Charm any restless hero's and send to attack boss
MA: Kromrif, wolves then boss

Darikan the Ancient   Boss active and de-active.
Kill adds to re-activate boss
Tanks:
- a restless Kromrif
- a restless crystal
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
CC: Mez wolves (a restless dire wolf)
MA: Adds then boss

Endaroky Stormcaller   Boss AEs Storm of Lightning.  Back off for AE (goes off 4 times in row)
Direct melee DPS for 55 second window when AE not happening
Tanks:
- a restless Kromrif
- a restless dire wolf
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
CC: Mez wolves (a restless dire wolf)
MA: Adds then boss

Mandrikai   AVOID AURAs and Rhinoceros adds that rush to aura locations
Tanks:
- a restless Kromrif
- a restless dire wolf
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
CC: Mez wolves (a restless dire wolf)
MA: Adds then boss

Warlord Feri   STAY CLOSE TO BOSS.  AE Damage is range modded (closer is better for this one)
Tanks: No adds
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
MA: Boss

Huntmaster Grondo   FULL BURN ON BOSS
Mezzing Adds
DO NOT USE AE DAMAGE
Tanks:
- Dry tank adds (mezzing), "a shivering dire wolf"
- Shivering wolves stunnable
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
CC:
- MEZ "a shivering dire wolf"
- May be hit by short range and duration Silence from boss (Curse of the Wild)
MA: Boss first then adds

Narandi the Restless   Assist MA.  Boss splits, need to kill real one.
Tanks:
- Offtank Narandi copies
- a restless Kromrif
- a restless dire wolf
Healers: Splash/Group Heals
MA: Adds then real boss

MA Prep - In case regular MA absent - Steps identify Real boss during splits:

When boss splits into FOUR (copies; emote occurs), pick one to DPS down.
At 80%~ HP it can emote: Narandi the Restless melts, a pool of water appearing at its feet.
Look for blueish aura at feet of the boss.  If it has BLUE aura then SWITCH to another boss.
Repeat process until we get to a boss that doesn't have the AURA appear.
Concept is to kill the one that does not have the blue aura.
If blue aura never appears then we just kill that boss.


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.

Thanks Raiena.

I've added the locs to the strategy post and also included a map file.

Changed markers to red color.  The map file is level 2, so people can filter out other levels that usually have NPC names and rares.


Trigger Package Updated

Added triggers for stage three.  Minor edit to existing spawn trigger.
