Brief Event Overview

Timed event: 25 minutes.  Exceeding timer results in one Pli Liako add every minute.

Aten Ha Ra is boss.

Pli Liako adds spawn on engage and near end stage of event if timer exceeded.

Player emoted with Silence of Shadows.  Target AE at player location shortly after: AE DD + Mana Drain + SILENCE.

Player emoted with Fluctuating Gravity.  Target AE at player location shortly after: AE DD + Knockback + Feign Death.

Players emoted with curable Greater Shadow Poison DoT + Mana Drain + Increase damage taken from Silence of Shadows Target AE.

Several dusky bulwark stone golems spawn and path from one side of the room to the other.  Players too close hit by Body Slam (DD + KB + Stun).

Smirking guardians activate and need to be dealt with.

When Aten Ha Ra reaches 21% HP, two Oozes spawn: Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra Dat and Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra Set

Killing a named ooze causes it to split into two smaller oozes.

If Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra (Dat + Set) touch each other an unstable shadow add spawns.

Aten Ha Ra HP locks at 10% while any adds are alive.

Aten Ha Ra HP unlocks at 4% regardless if any adds are alive.


Strategy

Assist MAs.

Timed event - Full burn on 3rd set of adds at start.  Discs will be back up again for final 21% stage of event.

Silence of Shadows emote - Move inside EAST Room.

Fluctuating Gravity emote - Move inside EAST Room.

Greater Shadow Poison emote - GET CURED - Self cure or ask in group if you're not able to cure.

Gargoyles - MEZ the smirking guardians to turn them to stone.


Stone Golems:

Several golems form a line and then path across the room.

There's a "gap" in the golem line that is used to move through without being hurt.

Main Tank MOVES BOSS on the steps in the SOUTH area and aligns with the oncoming gap from path of Stone Golems.

Raid FOLLOWS Main Tank and MOVES WITH BOSS to the new position.

As a raid we need to stay together.  Call out stragglers that don't move.

MA and coordinators call MOVES in raidsay and Discord.

Playing in 3rd person view is much easier to see when boss is moving and you can react immediately.


Aten Ha Ra 21% HP Onward:

Aten Ha Ra 21% HP - Two Oozes spawn.

Aten HP is LOCKED at 10% while any adds are alive.  HP unlocks at 4% regardless if any adds alive.

MA1 - Kill any Pli Liako penalty add, then get back on current Ooze being killed.  Rinse/repeat to keep Pli Liako adds down to avoid being overwhelmed.

MA2 - Casters kill oozes.  Focus on one until it dies and splits then focus on the splits.  Rinse/repeat.



Tanks:

- Pli Liako adds:
-- Upon engage spawns 3x at a time one minute apart for total of 9x (spawn: North, East, South)
-- Pli Liako spawn then activate a few seconds later; use that time to quickly acquire your assigned target
-- Pli Liako need to be pulled immediately to the main raid location (be mindful pathing on steps is a challenge)
-- Aten 21% HP penalty Pli Liako adds 1 per minute

Ooze Tanks:
- Must keep Kaas Thox oozes away from each other

- Ooze South spawn tank it SW: Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra Dat
-- Dat ooze splits into two: Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra Dat Zov

- Ooze North spawn tank it SE: Kaas Thox Xi Ha Ra Set
-- Set ooze most likely splits as well, placeholder here

- MTO:
-- Pathing is difficult when moving Aten up the steps; you have to adapt and figure out best way
-- Due to event timer, the quicker you can move Aten the better
-- Try not to move Aten to the East door, otherwise main raid will get Silenced from the nearby player emoted inside East room
-- When Stone Golems finish pathing to the other side and despawn, MOVE Aten back to base camp on South side to prepare for the next round of golems

- Paladins, splash when Cure Players trigger fires (to remove Greater Shadow Poison DoT)


Healers:
- Load cure Sanctified Blood
- Cure players emoted, self when emoted
- Cure will take two casts of Sanctified Blood
- Emoted players in your group need heals from afar when they're in east room because they're silenced and taking DoT damage


MA Kill Order: Pli Liako, Aten (from 21% downward, see above strategy notes)


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.
