|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This raid is initiated in Korafax by clicking on the door of Discord Tower. You must have at least a single group to do so.
The flag for this zone is a "Tower Key", which results from each of the three Korafax raid events. There are no other pre-requisites to participate in the raid.
See this Seeds of Destruction wiki article for progression information.
See this wiki article for a guide to using the armor essences found here.
There are seven events in this expedition (links point to event details and loot):
Event #1: Mindblight (involving an insanity mob called "The Mindblight")
Event #2: Trophy Room (involving several Discord "Trophy" mobs)
Event #3: Stasis (involving the Pixtt Curator of Discord)
Event #4: Scrying (involving four Ikaav scryers)
Event #5: Sacrifice (involving a ritual on the Riftseekers' King and Queen)
Event #5.5: A mini event, Elite Tower Guards (involving a pair of nekhons outside the door to Overlord Muram)
Event #6: Overlord Muram (involving several familiar faces - Zun`Muram Volkana, Arch Magus Vangl, and a few others)
Event #7: Edge of Destruction (involving Lord Brekt, the Rider of Discord)
The good news: Trash mobs are linked to events. They share lockouts.
The bad news: Trash mobs in this zone are considerably rougher than what you'd find in your typical raid zone. They hit for ~12,000 and almost all enrage. Other abilities depend on their race:
These have a rear AE that also breaks mez on any mobs it hits:
Backstabber's Regret: Directional 100', Chromatic (-650)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 10000
You'll only encounter two of these per clear. These proc a DoT on their target and have a natural mitigation to melee damage (melee will do around 25% less damage than normal).
Infected Scratches: Single Target, Disease (-650)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 5000
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 2000 to 4000 (random) per tick
3: Increase Disease Counter by 12
These cast an AE mana-to-life tap called "Feran's Balm" on all those around it.
These frequently AE rampage for full damage.
These cast a snare and single-target charm:
Chains of Destruction: Single Target, Magic (-650)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3000 per tick
2: Decrease Movement by 70%
3: Increase corruption counter by 4
Touch of the Mindshear: Single Target, Magic (-550)
1: Charm up to level 100
2: Increase Attack Speed by 70%
These cast a blind DD on their targets:
Blinding Shot: Single Target, Magic (-650)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 12000
These cast "Cranium Cleave" on their target:
Cranium Cleave: Single Target, Magic (-550)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 8000
2: Decrease Movement by 100%
3: Decrease Attack Speed by 60%
...As well as a spell called "Healer's Bane". Curing this results in a loss of 15,000 mana from the target.
These AE "Rebounding Spikes" (15k) upon its death; may 'rebound' off players and hit multiple times:
Rebounding Spikes: PB AE 50', Magic (-650)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 15000
These have an AE mana/hp drain and a mez:
Envenomed Mana: Area - PC Only 100', Poison (-600)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 3500 per tick
2: Decrease Mana by 2500 per tick
3: Increase Poison Counter by 12
Ikaav Entrancement: Single Target, Magic (-625)
These cast two damage spells:
Crushing Halberd: Directional 40', Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 10000
Ixt Halberd Impale: Single Target, Magic (-650)
1: Inhibit Melee Attacks by(75%)
2: Skill Damage Taken(30)
3: Decrease Movement by 90%
4: Decrease All Skills Damage Modifier by 50%
5: Decrease Hitpoints by 2500 per tick
6: Unknown #387 (100/17402/0)
7: Increase Curse Counter by 12
Curing "Ixt Halberd Impale" will result in a DT-equivalent DoT spell on yourself.
These cast the usual single-target DoT:
Grievous Wound: Single Target, Unresistable (-1000)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 5000 per tick
2: Decrease AC by 240
...As well as a directional AE DD + knockback + snare (right and left sides).
Finally, the lightning towerguards. These AE a DD+slow spell:
Lightning Overload: PB AE 40', Magic (-600)
1: Decrease HP when cast by 5500
2: Decrease Attack Speed by 50%
...And have an emote-based / line-of-sight-based AE for 50,000 (unshielded) which goes as follows:
[0:00] Static starts to gather around the lightning towerguard.
[0:05] The static charge around the lightning towerguard looks extraordinarily dangerous.
[0:10] The static charge releases in a huge burst of energy.
At the 10 second mark from its original emote, it AEs "Charge Imbalance":
Charge Imbalance: PB AE 300', Magic (-650)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 50000
2: Stun(2.00 sec)
This is avoidable by having people in the raid follow emotes similar to this:
You feel drawn to the south.
(Or, you can just duck out of sight every time you see the five-second warning.)
