Flag & Key Requirements

Zone Flag: None
Event Key: None

* Minimum to be Piggy/85'/pushed into raid: No requirement


Brief Event Overview

Event is triggered.  No trash to clear.

Tantor casts a Frontal AE and spawns primal guardian adds at 7% HP intervals.

Tantor HP locks at 3%~ while any primal guardian adds are alive.

Tantor chases targeted players.  Penalty if caught is Caster PB AE Maddened Mammoth, 325k DD + Stun + Knockback and boss powerup.

Tantor has a rock throw emote directed at players.  Failure to duck results in Target AE 290k DD + Stun + Knockback (Trunk-Flung Rock).

Tantorlings:

Three tantorlings spawn when Tantor HP reaches 71, 56 and 40% (possibly 20 and 7% as well).

Tantorlings chase targeted players.  Players caught are afflicted by a large 305k+ DoT + Mana Drain (Tantor Tantrum).

Tantorlings Tantor Tantrum aura DoT effect is only active when they throw a tantrum.  At other times it is safe to be within the tantorling colored aura.

Tantorlings do not hit back, can be damaged and killed, but do not despawn unless the event completes or is reset.



Strategy

Avoid front of Tantor.

DPS Tantor to 71%.  Kill each bunny when it spawns.

At 71% - Kill the three Tantorlings that spawn.  OT bunnies and kill once Tantorlings dead.

DPS Tantor to 56%.  Kill each bunny when it spawns.

At 56% - Kill the three Tantorlings that spawn.  OT bunnies and kill once Tantorlings dead.

DPS Tantor to 30%.  Kill each bunny when it spawns.

At 30% - BURN BOSS then KILL Bunnies (Tantor HP locks at 3% while bunnies alive).

DPS - Use short timer discs on tantorlings.  Save big long timer discs for full burn at 30%.


Emotes:

Run when Tantor gives chase and avoid being caught.  Kite around event area without leashing.

Duck when Tantor throws rock at you.  Using a mount prevents ducking and causes emote failure.

RUN TO RAID when Tantorling emoted.


Tanks:

- Primal guardian adds are bunnies.  Avoid tanking directly in AE Rampage of Tantor

- MTO: Tantor does a memblur after player each chase stops
- MTO: Bring Tantor back to base camp once chase stops

- Do not tank tantorlings

- Splash at Tantor


Healers:

- Avoid AE Rampage
- Splash at Tantor



Casters:
- Avoid AE Rampage.  But do not stand far out or you'll miss ADPS and Splash/Group heals!


MA Kill Order: Tantorlings, Primal guardians then Tantor



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.

Thursday, January 21, 2021 - Trigger Package Updated

Last week we tweaked our strategy and directed tantorling emoted players to RUN TO RAID.  The old triggers for tantorling were removed last week from the package, however, as expected, some players were still using the old trigger package and reacted by running away when emoted.

At the time of the raid last week it was recommended we adjust triggers to coincide with our strategy directing emoted players to run to raid when tantorling emoted.  This is a good suggestion.  I've updated the trigger package by reintroducing the old tantorling triggers and altered them accordingly.
