This is the third event in the Convorteum raid expedition.

You'll want to set up camp down the stairs from the event room and clear the entire area of trash mobs (the Unstable Creation isn't active yet, so you can pull around it).



Summary

- Activate the event by standing within melee range of the Unstable Creation.
- Keep the ore carriers rooted, snared, and/or mezzed away from the resource pools.
- Fight off the resource guardians.
- After 10 minutes, the Unstable Creation goes live.
- Kill the Unstable Creation while killing off its numerous adds.



Triggering the Event

Several people need to stand on the Unstable Creation to start the event. You'll have to stand there for a minute or two before it starts.

You'll see this unfold (NOTE: mobs start spawning after the first emote here):

An overseer shouts, 'They've gotten through the guards! We need to activate the creature!'

An overseer shouts, 'It's not moving! What happened?'

a resource guardian says 'The Master's creations must be preserved!'

A technician shouts, 'It needs time to power up! It's low on resources!'

An overseer shouts, 'Carriers! Return your resources to the pools at once! Guardians! Protect the resources!'

An overseer shouts, 'Overload the vats if you have to, but get those resources back to the creature NOW!'

An overseer shouts, '...And double-check your destination! Anyone who cancels out a reaction answers to me!'

A technician shouts, 'If we overload a resource we're going to weaken the creature! It'll be locked in to using that power!'

An overseer shouts, 'If it activates faster it's worth the risk! We need it moving now!'



The First 10 Minutes

After the event starts, dwarves called "an ore carrier" begin spawning at both doorways leading out of the room. You'll have a lot of these mobs to contain. The achievement (for bonus loot) requires that you prevent any of the resource pools from exploding. The carriers are trying to overload these pools. If they're successful, the Unstable Creation will go active and you'll lose the achievement (along with the bonus chest).

The ore carriers are susceptible to root, stun, and snare (but not mez). They can also be killed.

NOTE: If you don't care about the achievement bonus, you can let the dwarves overload the pools or do it yourself by using the ground spawns in and around the pools. Overloading the pools also makes the Unstable Creation fight a little easier (it will have less AEs).

The ground spawns:

Amethyst Cache
Amethyst Store
Cache of Water
Crystallized Blood Cache
Crystallized Blood Store
Crystallized Growth Cache
Crystallized Growth Store
Crystallized Magma Cache
Crystallized Magma Store
Crystallized Spore Cache
Crystallized Store of Spores
Sapphire Cache
Sapphire Store
Stone Cache
Stone Store
Store of Water

Certain items will shrink certain pools; certain items will overload pools (which contributes to the explosions).

An AE goes off when a pool explodes. These are known AEs that can result here:

Amethyst Explosion: PB AE 300', Prismatic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 47344
2: Decrease Endurance by 5000

Gravel Concussion: PB AE 300', Magic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 52442
2: Stun (2.00 sec/99)

Sapphire Explosion: PB AE 300', Prismatic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 45866
2: Adjust Mana (-10000)

Spore Explosion: PB AE 300', Disease (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 19695 per tick
2: Increase Disease Counter by 60

The Unstable Creation will go live 10 minutes after you start the event, or after a few resource pools have exploded (whichever happens first).

Also during this opening phase every 45 seconds, apexus mobs called "a resource guardian" spawn and attack the raid. They hit for a max ~16,000 and are stunnable (immune to mez).

After 9 minutes, you'll see:

A technician shouts, 'One more minute and the creature will activate!'

After 10 minutes, the Unstable Creation goes live.



The Unstable Creation

A technician shouts, 'It made it! Rise! Kill!'

An overseer shouts, 'I give the orders here, and I say... Kill!'

The Unstable Creation hits for a max ~20,000; single-target rampages; and AE rampages. It's permanently rooted. Depending on how many resource pools exploded, it will have some AEs.

"Crashing Wave", "Amethyst Blast", "Gravel Blast", "Spore Blast", "Root Burst", "Sapphire Blast", "Blood Torrent", "Magma Blast":

Amethyst Blast: PB AE 50', Prismatic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 27785
2: Decrease Endurance by 2500

Blood Torrent: PB AE 60', Poison (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 9052 per tick
2: Increase Poison Counter by 30

Crashing Wave: Directional 75', Cold (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 32025

Gravel Blast: Directional 75', Magic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 27989
2: Stun (1.00 sec/99)

Magma Blast: Directional 75', Fire (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 32535

Root Burst: PB AE 100', Magic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 8405 per tick
2: Root

Sapphire Blast: PB AE 50', Prismatic (-800)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 28199
2: Adjust Mana (-5000)

Spore Blast: Directional 75', Disease (-800)
1: Increase Disease Counter by 30
2: Decrease Hitpoints by 7373 per tick
3: Improved Spell Effect (Germination)



The Adds

A lot of adds spawn in this event. You'll be dealing with them constantly.

Unstable Fragments spawn in sets of 2-4. They hit for a max ~8,500, are stunnable, and are mezzable. They proc "Crystal Caltrops":

Crystal Caltrops: Single Target, Prismatic (-800)
2: Decrease Movement by 41% (L1) to 55% (L15)
3: Decrease Hate by 50

Rarely, a large number of sporali called "a sporeling" will spawn. These have very few hitpoints, but should be killed quickly as there are around 20 of them per wave.
