Empyr - T2 - Prince Ralaifin


Zone & Instance Info

Gather Zone: Empyr
NPC Name: Horizon Blighted Sage
NPC Location: Find path (CTRL-F)

Keyword to Enter:ready


Flag & Key Requirements

Zone Flag: None
Event Key: None
Group Mission: None
Event Flags: Battle Writ of the Jann (Raid) achievement
 
* Minimum to be Piggy/85'/pushed into raid: N/A


Brief Event Overview

Trash up in zone.  Some clearing for safety is ideal.

Proximity aggro on any boss starts event.

Four Ralaifin bosses and each has various AEs and emotes.

Ralaifin HP locks at 20% and goes invulnerable.

Ralaifin must remain in their respective AURA.  If leashed become invulnerable and massive HP regen.

Players emoted - Run away, target AE at player location.

Several spiderlings spawn shortly after rapture emote.

Volcanic Billow Shard mechanic to unlock HP on Ralaifin related to clicking shards that drop from each boss, one shard click per towers throughout zone.


Strategy

Main Raid:

Be careful not to aggro a boss when reacting to run away emotes.

Target AE Emotes - AE AROUND PLAYER EMOTED - Player run away from raid.

Engage and DPS Ecclesiastic to 30% and STOP.

Raid engages next boss in order and raid repeats actions above.

SWITCH targets immediately when MA calls to do so.  Light emote from a boss indicates one to DPS in order to stop AE.

Rangers, Enchanters and Wizards kill spider adds that spawn.

Let spider adds PATH TO THE RAID -- Do not pull them otherwise they can accidentally aggro a nearby boss.

Shards that drop from bosses are picked by assigned shard clickers.  Shard clicked at each tower.


Tanks:
- Keep your Ralaifin IN AURA
- Do NOT pretarget your Ralaifin.  A Cleric may accidentally use a ToT on you which is Heal-to-Damage that will early aggro a Ralaifin on your target
- Do not pull spider adds from afar, otherwise they can accidentally aggro a nearby boss.


Healers: Avoid Heal-to-Damage spells to prevent accidentally hitting a tank that has a boss targeted resulting in early aggro on that boss.


MA Kill Order: Ecclesiastic (burn on engage), Sacerdot, Oblate, Theologist -- MA immediately switch to boss that does Light emote, to stop AE.


Tower Adds & Shard Clicks:

Tower Add Killing Team - Moves to each tower starting NW and working clockwise around the zone killing both adds at each tower.

Assigned Shard Clicker.  Player picks up shards as they drop from boss and clicks one at each tower.

MAP file with markers available further in the post.



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.

* Friendly reminder: Freelance Raid Suggestion Policy regarding New Content - Don't kill the messenger -- pie management.



Details of NPCs/Mechanics


Volcanic Billow Shard - Mechanic Details

Ralaifin HP lock at 20%.  Shards drop from each boss and one shard must be clicked in each tower throughout the zone to unlock HP on all the bosses.

Throughout the zone are towers.  Upon engage of the event (or when shard drops), two adds spawn outside a tower.

Ralaifin bosses drop one or more Volcanic Billow Shard click item at 65%~ and 33%~ HP.

Click Notes:
  • Shard must be clicked at top of a tower
  • Click doesn't work unless tower adds dead
  • Shard cannot be used on the same tower twice

Shard drop emote: One of Ralaifin's remnants shudders and a Volcanic Billow Shard falls to the ground.

Click Success - At top of a tower: The Volcanic Billow Shard crumbles and a wave of energy thrums outward, collected by the tower, which hums in apparent contentment.'

Click Success - Upon final shard click in tower - HP on bosses unlocked: The prayers to Prince Ralaifin falter.

Click Failure - Adds up still: 'an entity attached to this tower interferes'

Click Failure - Not at up top of a tower: The Volcanic Billow shard feels grounded where you are.  Perhaps you need to gain some perspective'

Click failure - Tower already on: already empowered'



Towers & Adds

Seven towers located throughout the zone.

Towers have adds.

Adds do not see invis.

Adds hit for 7k - 18k~ and cast various spells.

Adds despawn when event resets.


Add types:
  • a jopal soldier
  • an inferno flare

Number & Time Adds Spawn: 14 adds spawn in pairs outside each tower when initial shard fallen emote fires at 65% HP of first Ralaifin boss engaged.



Ralaifin Bosses

All Ralaifin bosses have the ability to emote and cast Ralaifin's Light - Caster PB AE 225k DD + 8500 MANA DRAIN (1000' range).

Ralaifin's Light is preceded by a warning emote in shout: Ralaifin Soandso shouts, 'The light! The heat!'

A flash on screen in-game emote occurs as: Ralaifin Soandso fills with holy light. He will be wrathful until that light dims!

When the light emote fires DPS needs to be applied to that boss in order to turn off the AE.

The AE stops when boss emotes: Ralaifin Soandso shouts, 'The light leaves me!'

Start Event

Event is proximity aggro, not keyword.



Achievements:

- All in Its Place
-- Complete the raid without pulling an ecclesiastic from its aura.

- All at Once
-- Kill all four ecclesiastic within one minute.

- All on Their Own
-- Kill each ecclesiastic one at a time.  All remaining ecclesiastic must be more than 25% health.


Lore:

Event Reset: None.  Event doesn't cleanly reset.  Spiderlings remain up/keep spawning.  Corpses must be dragged to a safe location before rezzing.  Rez at corpse reset point is possible by risky if anyone moves slightly it'll risk aggro'ing spiderlings.

The following are the absolute minimum graphic settings to see auras.  Zoning is required for the changes to take effect.

To make the changes, in game go to Options (ALT-O), Display tab.  On that page there's a Particles area with three little tabs: Spells, Env and Player.

See everyone in game! :)

July 3, 2020 - Triggers Changes & Map File Updates for Run To Emote Location

Bubbulz mentioned the bot indicates east run to for players emoted and it may be confusing people.

Reviewing this, although we do have two east run-to's and a single NW; depending on the emote, it may indeed be confusing as mentioned.

I've changed the trigger and bot response to only a single direction to run; as WEST, for both emotes.

Map markers now include TWO WEST locations.  Players emoted can pick whichever location is closest to them.


Map File:

- Added WEST run-to
- Renamed old NW run-to label to WEST
- Removed East run-to labels


Trigger Package Update:

OK to MERGE PACKAGE WITH EXISTING "Empyr - Prince Ralaifin"

Updated triggers to indicate WEST run-to locations for both emotes.



See everyone in game! :)
