This is the first event in the "Solteris, the Throne of Ro" expedition.



This event is triggered through dialogue with one of the sisters, Althea, Brenda, or Christine. Say "help" to her.

You say, 'Hail, Althea'

Althea crosses her arms over her chest. She is wearing a permanent frown that twists her features into a devilish scowl. Althea manages to spit out, 'When will I see the Master next . . . I only came to this godforsaken place because it was a chance be closer to him, but he's gone to the battles above while I'm consigned to watch this sundial for days. Or has it been months? I don't know anymore! As long as it's been, the Master is still all I can think about. With Brenda and Christine out of the way he'd focus more attention on me, I know it! Can you . . . Can you [help] me, _____?'

You say, 'I can help you'

Althea nods and whispers, 'The simplest way to garner one's aaffection is to discover what they desire, and then become it. And I have seen what the Master desires. With sufficient demonstration of strength, the Master would wish me by his side at the frontlines. Bring me three artifacts from the prime guardians. That should be enough to destroy Brenda and Christine. Be quick about it . . .'



You say, 'Hail, Brenda'

Brenda is visibly fuming, her nostrils flaring with each exaggerated breath. 'The Master personally invited me to join him here, but now he's occupied elsewhere. I would give up anything to see his gorgeous face again. It's all Althea and Christine's fault! They doted on the Master until he left us behind. He was always happy with me. He flattered me endlessly. I MUST have that back. If the other two were gone, things would be different . . . Can you [help] me, _____?'

You say, 'I can help you'

Brenda nods and whispers, 'These nine disks encircling the sundial represent the suns that Solusek Ro draws power from. The disks are gateways to the suns and they are now protected by our forces, a different beast behind each one. Should you manipulate a disk, it will return the guardian here. Kill them and bring me three of the artifacts they carry. That should be enough to destroy Althea and Christine. Be quick about it . . .'



You say, 'Hail, Christine'

Christine clenches her small hands unconsciously until a trickle of blood seeps from her palm, 'I . . . overheard the Master's orders before they were relayed to me. He callously gave us the task of standing guard over this worthless sundial. As if being ignored by the Master wasn't enough, now I'm the subject of tedium in proximity to the two vipers I hate the most. Why? He used to care for me more than anything else in the world. Althea and Brenda ruined it! Those two ruined it! Please, can you [help] me, _____?'

You say, 'I can help you'

Christine nods and whispers, 'The Master has forced the dial to align with the sun of Ro, allowing his influence to spread there and ultimately dim the world of Norrath. The prime guardians stationed behind the gates are keeping this in check. By manipulating a disk, the guardian will return here. Kill them while they're disoriented and bring me three of their artifacts. That should be enough to destroy Althea and Brenda. Be quick about it . . .'



Upon triggering the event, a five minute timer starts. You must kill all nine guardians and give each sister three of their items within that timeframe, otherwise the event resets.

There are nine platforms surrounding the dial. Standing on a platform (or clicking on it?) triggers the spawn of a Guardian. You can spawn them one at a time or split your raid up and deal with them a few at a time. They have varying abilities and each drop an item to be given to a sister.



Guardian of the First Prime (drops Valen Ak-Daal)

Abilities: Flurries; enrages; AEs a Feign Death/DD spell.

35' AE: Blade of the Ak-Daal
1: Feign Death
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 12500


Guardian of the Second Prime (drops Stave of Stinging Soot)

Abilities: Flurries; enrages; AEs a DD spell.

30' AE: Stinging Soot
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 12500


Guardian of the Third Prime (drops Serpentine Ornate Backstabber)

Abilities: None except for enrage.


Guardian of the Fourth Prime (drops Phial of Swirling Toxins)

Abilities: Enrages; casts a viral spell on target.

Splash of Swirling Toxins
2: Increase Poison Counter by 36
3: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000 per tick

NOTE: If this is not cured within a few seconds, everyone will become afflicted with the same spell.


Guardian of the Fifth Prime (drops Buckler of Mistmoore)

Abilities: Enrages; immune to magic and poison spells; mitigates slashing.


Guardian of the Sixth Prime (drops Vermilion Batfur Shawl)

Abilities: Enrages; immune to all spells.


Guardian of the Seventh Prime (drops Finsternacht Cuirass)

Abilities: Enrages; mitigates slashing and piercing.


Guardian of the Eighth Prime (drops Lightning-Scored Greaves)

Abilities: Single-target rampages; AE rampages; enrages; casts a knockback/DoT/silence:

Lightning Greaves (single-target)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000 per tick
2: Silence
3: Amnesia (Silence vs Melee Effect)


Guardian of the Ninth Prime (drops Shroud of Purest Shade)

Abilities: Enrages; shadowsteps itself; casts a knockback/DoT/silence:

Lightning Greaves (single-target)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000 per tick
2: Silence
3: Amnesia (Silence vs Melee Effect)



Give each sister three of the dropped items. Once the ninth item is handed in, they will attack one another. Who attacks whom and who kills whom depends on the items given to them.

Lightning-Scored Greaves will always attack first.

Valen Ak-Daal will kill anything except for Buckler of Mistmoore.

Stave of Stinging Soot will kill anything except for the Vermilion Batfur Shawl and Shroud of Purest Shade.

There are numerous combinations you can do. Bear in mind, though, that the sisters take on the abilities of the Guardians from whom their items came. Some combinations will make the remaining sister unkillable or will leave you with two sisters to kill instead of just one.

_____ swings at _____ with the Ak-Daal blade!
_____ is cut down.

_____ swings at _____ with the Ak-Daal blade!
_____ deflects the attack with her shield.
_____ levels her wand at _____ and blasts her with a beam of steaming soot!
_____ is incinerated by the beam!

_____ screeches, 'The Master will know my worth and have me by his side soon. How soon, exactly? As soon as I cut down those of you standing in my way!'

The remaining sister begins attacking.



Upon failure:

Althea pouts, 'Another dismal failure! To be cursed as I have . . . to endure so many disappointments.'

Brenda screams, 'No curse compares to the torment of being trapped here with you pitiful strumpets!'

Christine whines, 'Save your pity. You'll be needing it when the Master realizes my worth and discards the two of you like the worthless trash you truly are.'

There is no reset timer -- it can be triggered again immediately.



Upon success, a chest spawns with loot on the dial. Loot consists of two Tiny Phosphene Clusters (effect yields 100 Phosphenes) and two items from this list:

Althea's Black Pearl Choker
Bloodstained Ak-Daal Blade
Brenda's Lavender Cinch
Christine's Engagement Ring
Cryptwood Truncheon
Diary of Jealous Loathing
Glowing Orb of Temporal Stasis
Haraibou of Screaming Souls
Polished Fang-Guard
Staff of Screaming Souls
Throatslitter

This event was trivial with a box group of 100-105's, I did not follow any strategy and simply burned down the 9 seals, then handed each Mistress 3 items that I did not bother to judge, I ended up with having to fight 2 of them at once and although their damage mitigation was annoying and took half an hour to kill it wasn't difficult.

This is no way bragging, just relaying that you do not really need to study the encounter to complete it, unlike Rear Guard later on.

mh... some hints perhaps:

riddled around how to spawn the mobs, it is simple if you know it:

- say "help" to one of the sisters (this is enough, you can asap spawn the mobs in the 9 mini platforms)
- run one platform 1-9 and click on the first step/platform part from outside and the mobs spawns at the middle and runs to you
- our Mage took the drops and gave it to the sisters while the others took on step by step every mob from 1 upto 6

We tried also different methods to get them to a longer timer:

Hail only Brenda:
Brenda 1,5,7
Hail only Althea:
Althea 2,6,9
Hail only Christine:
Christine 3,4,8

But it seems between one Hail and the deadline 5min is the max. After equipping one sister completely the deadline for this sister is gone after 5min. The new deadline seemed to allow killed old mobs to loot and use their stuff.

We had a group of lvl 90-100, we only managed to do it till mob 6, then the time was gone. Tried and optimized it but it seems you need much more firepower to single group that. However if the guy managed to single group that in 2008 then he must have a hell of DPS :(
Sad, normally for a lvl75 it is a nice twink gear and that zone would have a use, but it seems more efficient to level him to 80 and gear him with House of Thule stuff :(.

Group was:

100 Beastlord
100 Enchanter
100 Warrior
100 Druid
90 Cleric
90 Rogue
90 Magician

All are maximum group level geared to that date (Rain of Fear Tier2) but at silver status, no gold (weapons and most things were not prestige). I could not believe that gold status changes much. Any hints appreciated.

Gold changes a lot, most especially with the AA limits. Bring a 95+ berserker or two with you, and you'll get a few decaps in, considerably shortening the events. Decapitation does fire off of 2HS/2HP/2HB, but as best I can tell it counts as a spell, so the spell immune target may require additional attention.

If you are not sure what missions you need for SoL progression, you can go to researcher Elnot in Katta and say to him "Guidance" and he will tell you what missions you lack for progression. Good Luck

To start ,the guards spawn by standing on the dial(everyone has to be on dial),and you have hail one of the three sisters , said HELP to her.
map is marked 1 -9... stand on it pops a guardain of the number u stood on . kill guardian to do so you must stay on the sun dial which is fairly small no kiting room .. or be booted from zone loot a artifact. u need three of em .. they are no rent so dont DIE when you have one on you.
We killed one turned it in killed next turned it in.
If you have more then one item on on when u turn it in like if u have brenda and athneas weapons and turn into brenda she eats athenas so u have to start over.
Also this is timed you have to beat it in a given amount of time, we took too long a brake between mobs and it reset. mobs in zone dont seem to respawn and drop 1- 5 of the currancy so after clearin all the trash mobs ended up with about 100. I'll update more after i actully get the buggers dead.

OK edited . This took ALOt of deaths to figure out becuase u ***** it up it resets.
Once trash mobs were cleared we went to sun dial. idea is give each sister three items once all three geared they attack each other one lives attack u .
If you dont give them the right combos you end up with two to fight instead of just one so heres a good set up.
Start at :
Guardian of the First Prime, drops valen ak-daal give to brenda
Guardian of the Second Prime, drops salve of stinging shot give to athena
Guardian of the Third Prime, drops serpentine backstabber give to christine
Guardian of the Fourth Prime, drops phial of swirling toxins give to christine
Guardian of the Fifth Prime, drops mistmoore buckler give to brenda
Guardian of the Sixth Prime, drops vermillion batfur shawl give to athena
Guardian of the Seventh Prime, drops Finsternacht Cuirass to brenda
Guardian of the Eighth Prime, drops lightning scorned greaves give to christine
Guardian of the Ninth Prime, drops shroud of the purest shade give to athena

once all three are equipt. christ attacks athena, athena wins and gos after brenda she wins again she depops and a new version of her pops and starts whipping on raid. KIll her a chest pops! It also cause the DS sheild to drop so you can go to next stage of the raid.
Things to watch out for:
-People leaving the dial= fail
-Guardian of the First Prime
enrages,AEs a Feign Death/DD spell.
-Guardian of the Second Prime
enrages,AE DD spell. (like 12k)
-Guardian of the Third Prime
enrage
-Guardian of the Fourth Prime
enrages,Dot 5k
-Guardian of the Fifth Prime
enrages, immune to magic
-Guardian of the Sixth Prime
enrages, immune to spells.
-Guardian of the Seventh Prime
enrages
-Guardian of the Eighth Prime
rampages, casts a knockback that can knock u off the dial
-Guardian of the Ninth Prime (drops Shroud of Purest Shade)
enrages,casts a knockback that can knock you off dial

***Grats Wyrm Council.*** ***** off {guild name removed}your NOT the only guild doing solt. nor were you the first. Show some respect to your elders.

Second Stage...Soon

For starters, you don't lose No Rent items when you die. In fact, leaving no rent items on corpses is one way people keep from losing them when they log out for more than 30 minutes, which is the only way you lose no rent items.
