Brief Event Overview

Three dragons defend the tomb to Vulek'Aerr: Quoza, Uiliak and Nintal

Each dragon activates when a number of their kin; drake adds are killed.

When a dragon is idle (inactive), a chant AE DoT occurs with an emote: The idle dragons begin to chant.

When a dragon is active, a special ability for the particular dragon occurs with emotes.  The abilities are interrelated between dragons; whereby a player with a DoT effect from one will also take increased AE damage from certain other dragon AEs.

All three dragons have a Frontal AE; with warning emotes, that happens only when the particular dragon is active.

During the event drake adds related to each dragon fly down from the sky.



Strategy

Raid positioned SW.  Tight formation.

Pull and kill ALL adds.

AE Damage is allowed.

Mages & Necros - Sustained DPS on first active dragon.

Everyone else ASSIST MA to keep adds down to avoid being overwhelmed.

Necros primarily focus on active dragon, secondary DoTs on adds to optimize.

CC - Avoid charming protectors for the first 1-3 waves of adds.  Use charmed pets against other adds at main raid.


Tanks:

- Position each dragon at designed spot near main raid with dragon facing away from main raid due to Frontal AE


Healers: Splash, splash, splash!


MA Kill Order: Adds, active dragon



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.
