Aalishai - T3 - The Palace Gates


Zone & Instance Info

Gather Zone: Aalishai
NPC Name: Vermillion Refuge in Symmetry
NPC Location: Find path (CTRL-F)

Keyword to Enter:ready


Flag & Key Requirements

Zone Flag: None
Event Key: None
Group Mission: None
Event Flags: Greater Battle Writ of the Jann (Raid) achievement

* Minimum to be Piggy/85'/pushed into raid: N/A


Brief Event Overview

Trash up in zone.  Clearing for safety is ideal.

Proximity aggro on boss starts event.

Seneschal Radiant Propensity boss wild rampages.

At timed intervals Seneschal self buffs a short duration 50M HP Rune with a recourse Repercussions AE if enough damage occurs to drop the rune.  The Repercussion AE recourse kills phoenix and armor adds. 

There are two types of phoenix adds: Wildfire and Wind.  Each casts a different AE before being killed by the Repercussion AE.

A Wildfire phoenix casts Flames of Destruction - Caster PB 200k DD (30' range).  If this AE hits boss it will cause massive DAMAGE (145M~).  AE hits players for 200k.

A Wind phoenix casts Flames of Renewal - Caster PB Increase HP by 100k (30' range).  If this AE hits boss it will cause a massive HEAL (300M~).  AE heals players for 100k.

When Repercussion AE kills armor adds it strengthens the rank of the Repercussion AE.

Golems target random player locations and cast a visible ring on ground then AE damage that location and despawn.  Players avoid the ring to prevent AE damage.

Jopal, Vekerchiki, Triloun, Mephit adds cast a short range Fetid Blood DoT; massive mana/end drain.

Fire Giants are charmable.  Many of the adds mezzable.  Other event adds do not cast any spells.



Strategy

DO NOT USE AE DAMAGE OF ANY KIND

Boss positioned at door.

Entire raid position at boss location to minimize Wild Rampage damage.  Do not be near bridge or other area unless assigned to be.

Kiters assigned for wind phoenix and armor adds.  Kite counterclockwise, beyond the bridge.

Special kiter assigned for wildfire phoenix adds.  Kite in a tight loop to ensure the small range AE hits boss to cause damage.

Druid, Ranger or Enchanter assigned to PUNT/knockback the Slag Golem to keep it away.  Emoted players need to still react to trigger and run away.

ALL remaining adds not covered above to be MEZZED at raid.


DPS

- Pay attention to MA call when to DPS boss.



TANKS:

- ALL adds MEZZED at raid except for the following:
-- Phoenixes being kited
-- Armors being kited
-- Slag golem, punted (may need tank to snag to get off soft players, like Dark Elves, a weaker race...)

- Paladins, splash!


HEALERS:

- Disease Cure oriented spell lineup
-- Word of Greater Replenishment
-- GHoT with cure component
-- Etc.


ENCHANTERS:

- CHARM a fire giant lord and sick on boss.  Fire giant spawns south side.

- MEZ ALL adds at raid except for the following:
-- Phoenixes being kited
-- Armors being kited
-- Slag golem, punt away from raid


MA Kill Order: Boss on/off.


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.
