At event start, waves of centi adds spawn and attack.  Shortly after, Dusk and Dawn activate.

Dusk HP raised by player mechanic.  Dusk can be damaged once HP 50%.

Dawn is susceptible to player damage until HP 50%.

When both Dusk and Dawn reach 50% HP, they each transform into Midnight bosses and massive constructs activate.

Looming Shadow aura advances across zone perodically driven by shadow bearer adds.

Waves of centi adds continue to spawn throughout event.

Player emote mechanics in play during event.


Kill adds via MA.

When Setting Sun emoted, run away to cancel effect.

When Rising Sun emoted, run to Dawn.

Kill massive constructs.

Kill Shadow Bearers via MA2.  These adds spawn and advance the aura towards raid.  Killing them stops aura from advancing.

MA Kill Order:
- MA1 - constructs, centi, bosses

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.

Start Event

Event is triggered by keyword, speaking with Sergeant Hujiid and saying 'ready'

[Thu Mar 09 22:11:34 2023] Sergeant Hujiid says, 'Hail, friend. Thank you so much for coming to help. The Akheva have just arrived. I'm sure what you see here is not the extent of what they will bring to bear. All we hope to do here is bloody thier noses. [Reduce] their forces and make them think twice before advancing.'

[Thu Mar 09 22:11:34 2023] Sergeant Hujiid says, 'It's that shadow that worries me the most. It has been growing a bit since I got here. If you can somehow destroy that thing then I would consider this a win and we can retreat. If we let that thing expand too much we might not be able to stop it. For now they seem to be waiting for more of their forces to arrive. It might be best if you attack them as soon as you are [ready]. If you need to [leave], I can assist you with that.'

[Thu Mar 09 22:11:34 2023] Sergeant Hujiid says, 'Best of luck to you, friend.'
