|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This raid expedition is triggered by giving the Icon of the Altar to the Sentinel of the Altar inside the temple where you zone into the instance.
NOTE: Your raid will require one rogue, one person with a research skill of 200+, and one priest with a high tailoring skill.
Upon entering Ikkinz, you will encounter a Stalwart Caretaker. Have a rogue pickpocket the Runic Inscription from the golem. Give the inscription to the golem to unlock the door.
The Wardens and Sentries
Kill the Altar Wardens in the first rooms encountered (one is inside the left [Twin Struggles] room and the other is inside the right [Diabolic Destroyer] room).
Between them, they drop "Runed Glyph: Noxit" and "Runed Glyph: Aexit". Have your designated researcher loot the runes from the Wardens. These runes are used to open the next two doors.
Open the doors by holding a rune and clicking the use button ("U" by default). Inside each door is an Altar Sentry (similar to the Altar Wardens).
The sentries each give off an emote indicating who needs to get the kill shot:
Cannot stand the power of healers (Priests)
Combined strength and ingenuity (Hybrids)
Strength of intelligent magic (Casters)
Strength and cunning (Melees)
Between them, they drop "Runed Glyph: Grexit" and "Runed Glyph: Trusit". Have the researcher loot these items.
The researcher needs to combine the four runes in a Spell Research Kit to produce "Engraved Rune" which will unlock the arena door.
Next up is a battle in the arena/pit room. The Altar Overseer is your target. Upon engaging, Altar Monuments become active. If you keep your raid close to the center with the Overseer, you may reduce the amount of adds you get. Be prepared to kite them. Altar Overseer uses the spells Bury (6000 single target DD + Feign Death), Throw (single target 3000 DD) and Rain of Stone (AE 1500). Once the Overseer is dead, the Monuments become inactive.
The Overseer drops an Overseer's Geostone, which opens the next door. It doesn't seem to matter who loots this key.
The Phantasmal Priest
Next, send your designated priest tailor to speak with the Phantasmal Priest. Follow the dialogue to get a couple items to combine in a sewing it (any sewing kit should do, including cultural kits). Give the resulting combine to the Phantasmal Priest, at which point he'll prompt you to say "north", "south", and "return".
"North" and "South" take you to closed rooms with a ground spawn. Take the ground spawn and say "return" to get out. You can go back to these rooms again, but you can't get back out with "return".
Give the groundspawns to the Phantasmal Priest Guardians and they attack. The Phantasmal Priest may also attack.
The Guardians frequently cast the spell "Earthen Shrapnel" (an AE for ~500). Kill them both and make your way down to the feasting den.
The two Curate Firetenders AE the spell "Flames of the Fiend" (AE for ~2,700) and enrage. Have someone with an open container slot loot the Glowing Chunks of Coal from their corpses. They'll have to loot a container further into the event.
Oracle of the Altar
You can range-kill the two Altar Sustainers behind the Oracle of the Altar. If you do this, be prepared for the Oracle to charge at you. It's leashed to the room, but may get a few hits in on people before it leashes.
Kill the Oracle of the Altar. It drops a container called "Stone Drum of Cohesion" which needs to be looted by the person who looted the Glowing Chunks of Coal. Combine the Coals inside this container to produce a Fused Trusik Signet. This key opens the next door.
The Altar Construct
Be prepared for many, many adds with the Altar Construct. You'll want a few kiters prepared to handle the adds while the rest of the raid kills the Construct.
Once the Altar Construct is dead, you can leash the adds.
Keeper of the Altar
The Keeper of the Altar AE rampages, spawns numerous adds (though not as many as the previous named), and casts a few spells:
Earthen Shrapnel: PB AE 100', Magic (-300)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 500
Throw: Single Target, Magic (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3000
The Keeper drops 3-4 items from its loot table:
Bauble of the Forlorn
Blazing Stone of Demise
Bloodied Ritual Trinket
Bloodstone of Force
Gem-Inlaid Ritual Cloak
Glyph-Lined Vrex Cloak
Incantor Mask of Death
Robe of Destruction
Sharp Irestone Fragment
Veil of Entrancement
