Brief Event Overview

2020-08-28: Based on our first attempt.

Event is triggered.  No trash to clear.

When triggered Servant of the Sleeper attacks.

Similar to most dragons Servant of the Sleeper has directional AEs.

Boss is self buffed with Living Ice Guard; a shield that partially protects against melee and spell damage.  The shield can be reduced and eliminated, but subsequently is repaired if a Custodian add reaches the dragon.


Reduction / Removal of Living Ice Guard:

This mechanic involves two parts coming together in a raid coordinated action.  One is creating a clicky item that provides the Main Tank with protection and the other part requires moving an unstable golem to boss and casting Fire damage on the unstable golem in order to cause it to explode to reduce/remove the boss's shield.

A Velium Suspension Gel click item is created via poison crafting by a Rogue or Shaman (Trivial: 260). 

Fractured Velium Shard pick up on ground in event area (appear as orange crystals).

Construct Binding Gel, dropped from the velium sentry adds (item will appear in advloot window).

Combine the above two components in a Mortar and Pestle or equivalent to create the gel.

Coordinate action of bringing unstable golem near/at boss with MT protected and raid use Fire on unstable golem.

Boss will emote shield updates accordingly.  Example: The Living Ice Guard cracks. It is less effective.


Strategy

Assist MA. 

Kill priority Custodian add before reaches boss or it will repair Living Ice Guard (shield buff on boss).

Kill Sentry adds.  They drop TS component required to make gel clicky.

Kite an unstable velium sentry temporarily.

Coordinate raid action to reduce/remove Living Ice Guard (shield buff on boss).  MT protected with clicky then unstable golem brought to boss and MA calls Fire damage on golem.


Tanks:

- MTO responsible for turning dragon to prevent directional AEs from hitting main raid.
- All other tanks assigned to adds.
- Unstable add is special, kite it and watch for coordinated action when to bring it to dragon.


Healers: MGB CR/IoS, Ancestrial Aid, Alliance by assigns in channel


MA Kill Order:

- a velium custodian
- a velium sentry
- Coordinated: an unstable velium sentry


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.

Start Event

Event is triggered by keyword, speaking with NPC Azzrihi.

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:32 2020] Azzrihi says, 'What are you doing? Hurry up! I can only hold back the [storm] for so long. Get yourself set up and [engage] the servant!'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:37 2020] You say, 'storm'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:37 2020] Azzrihi says, 'I don't know if it's coincidental or causal, but when you defeated the Ry`Gorr, a pulse of [energy] exploded from the Sleeper's Tomb. This emanation shocked the weather into a greater storm and [empowered] that dracoliche up there and coated it in a layer of that living ice. You know, you really should hurry. I'm going to flag soon.'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:42 2020] You say, 'energy'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:42 2020] Azzrihi says, 'You mean you didn't [hear] it? What are you, DEAF!? Bah. That's not important now. I was sent here to research the living ice, but now I'm busy chatting with you about things you have no chance to understand while I'm running out of the mana necessary to stop the storm.'
[Fri Aug 28 23:02:44 2020] You say, 'empowered'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:45 2020] Azzrihi says, 'Yes. Not only is the dracoliche stronger, but it is also maintaining this storm. Have you had enough small talk? I thought you types were all action. Go! Hurry. [Engage] the dracolich!'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:48 2020] You say, 'hear'

[Fri Aug 28 23:02:48 2020] Azzrihi says, 'It was so loud that I couldn't make it out over the ringing in my head, but it was something in elder draconic.'

Saturday, August 29, 2020 - Strategy Posted with Trigger Packages

Took our first look at this event last night.  Not a bad run, got Servant of the Sleeper to 44%.

We believe we have the mechanics fleshed out.  We'll test them out tonight!


Trigger Packages

There are three packages.  Make sure you download the "Everyone" package and then download the addons accordingly (Healers, Paladins and Main Tanks).


See everyone in-game! :)
