Brief Event Overview

Two stage event.  First stage involves named golems.  Second stage The Amalgam Arbiter boss.

First stage of event consists of three named golems: Asterated, Dendritic, and Starseed.

Upon event start, a random golem activates.  When one dies, another activates.

Each golem has a unique mechanic with emote.

Each golem drops shards: Charged Golem Shard.

When ALL three golems are killed, they reform and come together as The Amalgam Arbiter.

The Amalgam Arbiter inherits all of the mechanics and abilities of the previous golems, with some enhancements of its own.

A Charged Golem Shard click item is used to remove the Crushing Energy Field DoT + debuff in order to prevent increased damage from Arbiter's Golem Stomp AE.


Asterated Golem:

Asterated casts Gathering Energy and Gathering Cold debuff on TWO players together.

Asterated then begins repeatedly casting Energetic Field and Crystal Coating debuff (increases damage from Energetic Explosion and Frost Explosion).

After 18 seconds, each emoted player's debuff fades and casts Energetic Explosion or Frost Explosion 180k AE DD + Mana Drain at their location.

Anyone hit by Energetic/Frost Explosion AE, with Energetic Field or Crystal Coating debuff, will be hit for increased damage by 250%~


Dendritic Golem:

Dendritic spawns adds that involve a Stone mechanic with emote.  A visible ring appears around emoted players.  Players run away to avoid hurting others.

Dendritic goes invulnerable while adds are active.


Starseed Golem:

Starseed warns everyone with an emote and 10s later casts Decapitating Shards AE many times.

Players duck for 10s avoids being hit by Decapitating Shards.



Strategy

No specific burn stage.  Utilize your discs/burns early; during three golem stage, then reuse them as they refresh.

Energetic/Frost Explosion AE has a big range, both emoted players need to run far from the raid.

Golem is invulnerable during adds.  Assist MA accordingly.

CC - Can temporarily charm lesser shards.


Charged Golem Shard - Click Team:

Charged Golem Shard click items drop from the three golem bosses: Asterated, Dendritic, and Starseed

Members of this team loot a Charged Golem Shard click item.  The item is LORE and has one charge.

The shard clicks are used during the final boss stage of the event, when The Amalgam Arbiter is active.

A shard is clicked when the following emote occurs: The massive golem begins to give off an immense amount of energy.

The shard click effect removes Crushing Energy Field DoT and mana drain.

Note:
- Small team of clickers assigned, one to three players
- Coordinator determines when to start clicks, can call out players in Discord or in-game who is up next; whatever works best/up to player organizing
- Due to potentially limited number of available shards, the coordinator may decide to skip the first few rounds of emotes



Tanks:
- Tank adds out of golem AE Rampage range; at designated campfire/spot
-- Alternatively, MTO move golem accordingly


Healers: Splash, splash, splash!


MA Kill Order: Dendridic shards, then lesser shards.



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.
