Brief Event Overview

The Primal Vampire is boss.

Floating feast adds spawn throughout event based on boss HP, and drop Blood Sacs when killed.

Several tenacious tick adds spawn shortly into event and latch onto players.  Ticks stop spawning after boss reaches 45%~ HP.

Two amorphous vampires spawn at boss HP percent: 75, 50, 35, and 20.

If amorphous vampires are not killed quickly enough, The Primal Vampire will heal.

When boss reaches 40%, random players targeted with long duration charm. 

Killing floating feast adds breaks charm.

Killing a charmed player results in massive AE damage and other detrimental effects.

Yellow auras appear random locations from 35% boss HP onward.  Players caught in aura hit with large amount of damage.

Boss HP locks at 5%~ and 3%~ while players charmed.


Strategy

DO NOT HAIL The Primal Vampire -- Otherwise event will start.

Assist MA.

Watch calls for DPS OFF and re-assist.

Control DPS on boss to avoid spawning amorphous vampires at the same time tick adds already up.

Amorphous vampires must die fast, or boss HP heals.

Move out of Yellow Aura - Big damage - Move to where MT moves to stay together as a raid.


Blood Sacs:

For assigned players only.

Blood Sac drops from Floating Feast adds.

Currently, we are using Blood Sac's to combine and create Enlarged Sac of Blood for the Target AE click.

Combine Blood Sac + Blood Sac to create Enlarged Sac of Blood.

Combine Enlarged Sac of Blood + Blood Sac to make Big Sac of Blood (Target AE clicky)


Tanks:
- Tank amorphous vampire at NORTH campfire
- Tank ticks, floating feasts, and boss at SOUTH campfire


Healers:
- Splash
- Keep your groups HP topped off -- Massive AE/DoT damage in play
- Clerics, can use Turn Undead DoT on an amorphous vampire


MA Kill Order: Vampires, Ticks, Floating Feasts


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.
