Brief Event Overview

Zelnithak main boss.

Various zelniak adds begin to spawn at 93% and onward.

Penalty 500k AE + Mana Drain upon death of zelniak add if left alive too long.

Zelnithak alternates two buffs; one mitigates MELEE damage (Quilled Coat) and the other increases SPELL reflects (Aura of Spiritual Power).

When Zelnithak mitigates MELEE, the adds will increase SPELL reflects.

When Zelnithak reflects SPELLS, the adds will mitigate MELEE.


Auras - Stones & Insects:

Two aura mechanics.  Only one is in play at any given time; either Stones or Insects.

Stones Aura - Warning emote and visual ring on the ground appears.  15 seconds later, a 400k AE fires at aura location.

Insects Aura - Targets player with warning, then aura spawns and chases player.  Anyone caught in aura suffers 300k DoT + Mana Drain.


Strategy

DO NOT HAIL Zelnithak -- Otherwise event will start.

Assist MAs.

Melee and Casters - React to triggers and /raidsay calls when asked to switch between Boss and Adds to be effective against the mitigation buffs.

Stones Aura - When warning emote fires, look for aura and adjust position to avoid.

Insects Aura - When emoted, kite aura away from raid; stay in event boundary area, don't let aura touch you.


Tanks:
- Position adds at designated campfire


Healers:
- If Shaman, splash and out heal Julen or Kilorf; make them cry, earn pie
- If Cleric, out heal any Halfling on the raid and earn an empty pie tin; make your own pie
- If Druid, debuff things, heal, adps, bufff, and own it up


MA Kill Order: Zelniak, Small, Young


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.

* Friendly reminder: Freelance Raid Suggestion Policy regarding New Content - Don't kill the messenger -- pie management.

Warning Emote: Stones begin to rumble and rise from the ground.
1st Person Effect: Shards of stone fire up from the ground beneath you.
Note:
- Aura should be visible when the "Stone begins..." emote occurs (15s warning, then rumbling ground casts Summoned Stone Shards)
