|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is an event in the Meldrath's Majestic Mansion raid expedition.
Krond the Longhorn can be found resting on a large bed in a room next to the maze. None of the mobs in the room are aggro until the event is triggered. You will want to clear out the entire maze before engaging Krond.
Krond the Longhorn snores loudly, 'ZZZzzz...'
Attack him. He's clearly in a very deep sleep, as he stays that way until 95% health at which point he wakes up...
Krond the Longhorn roars angrily, 'Who dares disturb my slumber!'
...And walks over to the front of his bed, attacking. He is perma-rooted (and remains that way any time he's attacking - he'll move throughout the event, but won't attack while doing so). He hits for a max ~13,000; does NOT rampage; does NOT flurry (unless you provoke him - see below); and enrages.
There are a few components to this event:
The Cruel Slavers
From the moment Krond wakes up, Cruel Slavers begin spawning one at a time. They'll cast an unresistable single-target charm (called "Enslave") upon random people.
If left alone, they will leave the room and continue into the maze (with the charmed player) until it reaches the final room, at which point the charm wears off. The Cruel Slaver(s) then make quick work of the player. The slavers are killable (and fight back if provoked, hitting for ~4,500) and the charm can be dispelled.
Randomly, Krond will stop attacking, move to one of the weapon racks in the room (there are four of them), and equip a set of weapons:
easternmost rack = Spears
middle east rack = Gears
middle west rack = Axes
westernmost rack = Swords
Whoever is in Krond's target must have a specific weapon setup, according to the weapons he's equipped:
Spears = 1hander + Shield
Gears = 1hs + 1hs
Axes = 2hs
Swords = 1hb + 1hs
In the event Krond's target does not comply with the above setups:
Krond the Longhorn howls with rage, '_____, your puny choice of weaponry provides no counter for my selection of weapons, prepare for the onslaughter of my wrath!'
...And Krond begins flurrying about every round. If you have the correct setup, you'll see...
Krond the Longhorn growls in frustration, 'For such a foolish creature, your choice of weapons is a wise one, _____'
Note that each time Krond moves, he drops aggro. Be careful of aggro when he reactivates.
These are the looks of Krond's weapons (click to enlarge):
Given the randomness of these weapon changes, it is possible (though unlikely) to go through the entire event without a single weapon run.
Four Henchotaurs can be found in the corner of Krond's room. Randomly (usually 1-3 times per encounter), Krond will activate these mobs. When you see this emote...
Krond the Longhorn roars angrily, 'Henchotaurs charge these pests, trample them beneath your hooves, gore them with your horns, revel in their slaughter!'
...The Henchotaurs will soon begin moving. People should bunch up in front of the Henchotaurs in an effort to stop them. If successful, each one will emote...
Henchotaur Neilam breathes heavily and stops his charge for a moment to catch his breath.
...And cast the spell "Gored" on those in front of it...
Gored: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000
2: Stun(5.00 sec)
Henchotaurs that are not stopped will reach Krond and AE a silence:
Hoof Stomp: PB AE 400', (-250)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 4000
Krond the Longhorn has been slain by _____!
