|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a special one week only raid which is available from June 30, 2008 to July 6, 2008. You must have at least six and no more than 54 people in your raid. Denlin Merodon may be found at -53, -57, -156, just south of the Soulbinder in the Plane of Knowledge.
You say, 'Hail, Denlin Merodon'
Denlin Merodon says 'Greetings, _____. Have you come to [answer the call] of the gods?'
You say, 'I have come to answer the call.'
Denlin Merodon says 'Perhaps all is not lost on Norrath. The gods themselves have created this infernal [manifestation], yet they have no motivation to act. Their apathy will someday be their undoing.'
You say, 'What manifestation?'
Denlin Merodon says 'When the people of Norrath started to lose faith in their gods, their powers began to fade, as a god without followers is no god at all. Unlike you however, they had no outlet for their emotions. Over time they grew, and festered, until it coalesced into the living embodiment of gloom. The Avatar of Despair now awaits all who [would challenge it].'
You say, 'I would challenge it.'
Denlin Merodon says 'The bravery of mortals never falters, even in the face of the most foul creatures in all of Norrath. I warn you, Half Elf, the creature you face is like nothing seen before. The true face of hopelessness. Prepare yourself, mortal! Let me know when you are [ready to go] and I will send you upon your way.'
You do not meet the player count requirement. You have 1 players. You must have at least 6 and no more than 54.
You say, 'I am ready to go'
Denlin Merodon says 'Then so it begins, _____. May you succeed where so many before you have failed.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Dominion of Despair.
You have entered an Arena (PvP) area.
This event takes place in The Arena. In the middle of the zone you will see a large bazu called "Avatar of Despair". Your goal is to kill it in the quickest time possible.
Along the way he will spawn adds in waves which despawn after a short period of time:
Visage of Despair
Hand of Despair
Eye of Despair
These adds AE a variety of spells, from snares to several-slot dispells. The Avatar itself gains strength and melee abilities as it decreases in health. It also has multiple AE gravity fluxes.
Rewards scale based on how other guilds/raids do on your server. The raid that kills it in the quickest time receives the best reward.
From SOE's official Living Legacy website:
The Call Of The Gods
In the outer Planes, a new menace stirs. In the Plane of Knowledge, a Herald of Zebuxoruk is gathering groups of Norrath's mightiest heroes to challenge a foe that the Gods themselves cannot defeat. Do you dare answer the call of the Gods and face the Avatar of Despair?
Rules: This raid tests the battle prowess of the raid force. Once the scenario is triggered, the Avatar of Despair will spawn. Players must work together to defeat this threat as quickly as possible. The more quickly the Avatar is defeated, the better the ranking for the participants.
Rewards: Individual rewards for this raid event will be calculated based on the best attempt for each player. Every participant in a raid group on each server will receive an item from the initiating NPC that is used to track their progress. Once the results for all raids have been tabulated across all servers, a scaling item reward* will be given to players based on their relative performance in the raid.
The first round of this raid scenario ends on 7/6, so get ready to have some fun! Check the leader boards table of guilds & players to track your progress and compete with your friends.
*One per character, non-tradeable. Sony Online Entertainment, in its sole and absolute discretion, will determine raid performances and corresponding rewards.
