|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is a mini-raid (up to 12 people) which begins with Telivar S`vik in Korafax. To spawn him, go to the room marked on this map and say "Telivar" (you must have completed the "Find Telivar" task in order to do this - see this page for progression information).
Additionally, you must have completed all previous Korafax tasks (both the solo tasks and the three group missions) in order to request this mini-raid. There are no pre-requisites for participating in the raid (other than the Korafax group progression flag).
You say, 'Hail, Telivar S`vik'
Telivar S`vik looks around suspiciously. 'So, you learned of me. Must have been that worthless human I saved. I should have known better. Should have left him to suffer. Now, I should just kill you. If [these creatures] torture you, you'll start screaming right away. I can't [trust] you, even if you claim to be here to help. If there were [more] of you, then I might have more faith. The beasts here come closer to finding me every day. With your help I probably won't be able to [evade] them very long.
You say, 'There are more of us'
Telivar S`vik says 'Well, if you have help, then I might have something you can do to help out. I keep my eyes and ears open, and I know where the danger lies. I can slip you past some of the trouble and send you on your way if you're [ready].'
You have been assigned the task 'Stardouser'.
Telivar has heard that one of the more powerful discordians is expected to visit the citadel soon. There is much concern among the locals because he is known for his hunger and his ability to satisfy it. They seem to think that he can devour energy, whole suns they say. They talk about his ability to use the gates to access several worlds at once and drain some of their magical power. Even dead worlds can yield some power to the Stardouser. Telivar thinks that this power is probably over-rated, but he also thinks that you and your allies should go out and kill the thing anyway, just in case. He suggests that you speak with the Riftseekers before engaging Stardouser, they may have information that will help you.
Kill Stardouser 0/1 (Korafax, Home of the Riders)
You say, 'Ready!'
Telivar S`vik says 'Good luck.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Korafax, Home of the Riders.
From the zone-in point, head south and out of the building, then west around the perimeter. Stardouser can be found near the Tower of Discord.
You'll have to go around to all of the portals and set them in a pattern so that they`re all off. There are eight of them. See this map for their locations. Either riftseeker posted in front of them can switch them off or on:
You say, 'Hail, a gelidran rift slave'
a gelidran rift slave says 'We cannot speak. We must concentrate on maintaining the portals or the master's feasting might be [interrupted].'
You say, 'Interrupted?'
a gelidran rift slave says 'If we break the connection others may open, others may close. It all depends on the master, Stardouser. He has set a [pattern] in the portals and linked them to each other in a way that we do not understand. I can switch this portal on or off if you truly wish me to. Others may turn on or off when I do so. Each open portal gives power to the master and he will be angry if too few are open, as that will weaken him. Perhaps you can deduce the pattern and turn enough of them off to allow you to defeat Stardouser, though even without the power of the portals his strength is terrifying. Be aware that disturbing his feeding will surely draw the attention of Stardouser's personal guard. If we stop or start the power drain someone will surely come to investigate. Do you wish me to [switch] this portal?'
You say, 'Pattern?'
a gelidran rift slave says 'I can tell you what little I know of the pattern. There are required numbers to these patterns, this I know from a long lifetime of opening such rifts. Each of these portals is either on or off, you should be able to tell by watching every particle near you. One of the portals will switch itself and three others. Two will switch themselves and two others. Four will switch themselves and only one other. And one will only switch itself. But I cannot tell you how they are linked. You could discover their connections by switching them and discovering the pattern, but that is risky, for someone will notice the changes and will come to investigate.'
You say, 'Switch it'
a gelidran rift slave says 'It is done.'
This must be done while sneaking, otherwise they will not respond. In addition, it is typically best for a class with invis or fade/FD abilities, as there are a number of wandering mobs. Any portals left "on" will spawn discord mobs which flock to Stardouser's aid.
You can tell a portal is in the ON position by the particle effects. If you see them, it`s on. If you don`t, it`s off (whoever is in charge of portal setting needs particle effects turned on).
The mob population here is much lighter than the static version of the zone. There are several safe points for the rest of your raid party to wait at while the portals are set.
Any mobs that spawn from the portals (you`ll know them as they are "a _____ hunter") must be killed before engaging Stardouser. These mobs build up, so get the portals set as quick as possible.
Stardouser shouts 'So, pests have come to plague me. No matter, more food for my growing hunger!'
Stardouser hits for a max ~10,000; AE rampages; and enrages. He does not flurry. He casts these spells quite frequently and has a relatively low amount of hitpoints:
Mindvoid: PB AE 700', Unresistable (0)
1: Stun(3.00 sec)
Swell of the Deep Void: Targeted AE 150', Magic (-550)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 2000 per tick
2: Decrease Movement by 50%
3: Decrease ATK by 300
4: Decrease Mana by 700 per tick
6: Stun(1.00 sec)
He is permanently rooted, so must be fought where he stands.
Stardouser has been slain by _____!
Stardouser's corpse crashes to the ground.
Your faction standing with Discordant Armies got worse.
Your faction standing with Dragorn Forces got better.
Your faction standing with Herald of Druzzil Ro got better.
Telivar was impressed with your efforts. He suggested that you find more of your powerful friends and head into the tower. Perhaps you can deliver a powerful blow to the Discordians and perhaps change their minds about destroying Norrath.
Your faction standing with Herald of Druzzil Ro got better.
You have successfully been granted your reward for: Stardouser
Timeshear Black Fragment Dena
Completion of this task (and its pre-requisites) allows you to request the Korafax raid expedition.
