This is the sixth event in the Convorteum raid expedition.

NOTE: This writeup outlines how to complete the event without obtaining the achievements (which are detailed in a section below). If you want to complete it with the achievements, you'll have to adjust your strategy.

You can set up your raid around the area as you see fit. No mobs are aggro until the event is triggered.



Summary

- Trigger the event by saying "barrier" to one of the sisters (ensure all sisters are aggro'd at once).
- DPS the sisters while alternating between them as needed.
- Kill all four sisters within one minute of each other.



Emotes

Emotes you'll see during the event (these are outlined in more detail in further sections below):

"_____ lashes out with debilitating energy" (the sister just AE'd her debuffs)

"You are surrounded by debilitating energy" (you've been hit by the debuff)

"_____ is gathering a large amount of energy from the barrier." (10 second warning for that sister's "Energy Wave")



Room and Raid Setup

This event takes place on the top floor of the pyramid. The four Bellikos sisters are found around the perimeter above the pit. They're equally spaced apart.

You'll want to split up your raid into four parts (one for each sister), with tanks, healers, and DPS assigned to each sister.



Triggering the Event

You can start the event by speaking with any of the four sisters.

You say, 'Hail, Therias'

Therias says 'I do not know how you managed to get this far, but you will not reach the Master while we maintain this [barrier].'

You say, 'We'll break your barrier!'

Therias says 'It is beyond your understanding, though you shall witness our power briefly as you are destroyed!'

NOTE: The AEs in this event are on a timer. In order to ensure they all happen at the same time, all four sisters must be aggro'd all at once. Tanks should have attack on before the event is triggered to make sure the sisters are each aggro'd at the same time.

NOTE: All sisters must be kept on aggro. If you leave one idle, she regenerates the others. You'll see this emote if you do that (for example):

Daphris diverts some of her energy to Feonyss.



Mob Abilities

The sisters each hit for a max ~18,000. They don't flurry or rampage. They are permanently rooted and each have a few AEs (in addition to the debilitating debuffs, which will be outlined in a section below):

Therias and Feonyss each cast "Virulent Pustules". This spell appears in your song window. It's a disease-based DOT that goes viral when it wears off. Druids can use their group auras and Clerics can use their wards to help keep this cured.

Virulent Pustules: Single Target, Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 4800 per tick (2 ticks)
2: Improved Spell Effect (Contagious Pustules) (goes viral after it wears off)

Selistras casts "Selistras' Curse of Ineptitude":

Selistras' Curse of Ineptitude: Targeted AE 30', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Spell Haste by 300%
2: Decrease Attack Speed by 80%
3: Limit: Spell Type (Detrimental only)
4: Limit: Effect (Hitpoints allowed)
5: Increase Curse Counter by 16

Daphris casts "Scorching Beam":

Scorching Beam: Unknown(44) 30', Unresistable (0)
1: Decrease Hitpoints by 18000



Debilitating Energy & AE Timing

Each sister has two AEs (in addition to those listed above). They are "Energy Wave" and "_____'s Debilitating Energy" (where the blank is the name of the sister).

They cast these spells every 45 seconds.

After the event starts, the first AE they'll cast is "Energy Wave". If you aggro'd each sister at the exact same time, they should each AE this spell at the same time (and all subsequent casts should all happen at the same time).

Exactly 16 seconds later, they cast their "Debilitating Energy" debuff on 6 random targets (can land on anyone within 200 range of the sister casting it).

Exactly 29 seconds after that, the sister AEs "Energy Wave" again.

This casting process repeats itself (with the exact mentioned timing) until the sister dies.



The Debuffs, Their Effects, and Curing

Each sister does an emote when she casts her "Debilitating Energy" AE (seen in red text only by those in her range):

_____ lashes out with debilitating energy

(where the blank is the name of the sister)

The debuff lasts 10 minutes. It can't be cured with standard spells. If you have this debuff on you and get hit by the sister's "Energy Wave" AE, you get death touched.

You can cure this debuff by letting yourself be hit by the "Energy Wave" AE from any of the other three sisters.



Coordinating the Cures

DPS groups should be ready to run to another sister every time the "lashes out" emote goes off. Doing so will ensure they're always cured of the debuffs and never outside range of their healers.

Tanks and their healers will have to coordinate their movement based on who gets hit with the debuff. Tanks need to be prepared to dump their aggro and run to another sister if they get the debuff. Likewise, tanks who don't get the debuff should be prepared to pick up the aggro on the sister who no longer has a tank.

On one side of the room are Therias and Feonyss. On the other side of the room are Daphris and Selistras.

People on Therias and Feonyss should alternate between those two sisters (use Feonyss to cure Therias' debuff; use Therias to cure Feonyss' debuff).

People on Daphris and Selistras should alternate between those two sisters (use Daphris to cure Selistras' debuff; use Selistras to cure Daphris' debuff).

(Alternatively, you can have the raid move around in a circle and have everyone use all four sisters.)



Completing the Event

All four sisters must die within 60 seconds of each other. If you kill a sister and allow one minute to pass before killing the others, the slain sister's essence will be absorbed into the barrier and the remaining sisters will regenerate significantly (more details about this are listed in the achievement section below).

Selistras has been slain by _____!
Selistras's corpse dies with a curse on her lips, her essence absorbed into the barrier.

Therias has been slain by _____!
Therias's corpse tries to attack one last time as she falls, her essence absorbed into the barrier.

Feonyss has been slain by _____!
Feonyss's corpse screams at you in fury as she dies, her essence absorbed into the barrier

Daphris has been slain by _____!

A chest called "Hoard of the Four" spawns upon the death of the last sister. It appears near the top of the stairway from the lower levels.

NOTE: The First Creation event spawns in the pit below, so don't go down there. If you trigger that event, it'll reset and everyone (along with any corpses in the zone) will warp to the large room to the south. (This room is generally used as a prep area for The First Creation.)



Loot

Loot includes 2 armor pieces (first list) + 2 other items (second list) + 2 Twinkling Hyperfiligreed Runes + 2 Brilliantly/Brightly Pulsating Crystallized Cosgrove Shards + 1 Amulet of Brell (backflag) + 0-1 Crystallized Ball of Cosgrove Clay (cultural aug) + 0-1 bonus weapon:

Rhodium Encrusted Carpal Clay
Rhodium Encrusted Cephalic Clay
Rhodium Encrusted Crural Clay
Rhodium Encrusted Phalangeal Clay
Rhodium Encrusted Tarsal Clay

Pearls of Recklessness
Runed Shroud of Debilitation

This chest also has a small chance to drop a weapon from another event.



Achievement & Bonus Loot

There are three achievements for this event:
- Make Them Watch (Defeat the Magus Sisters after allowing one essence to be absorbed from fallen sisters.)
- Half Sisters (Defeat the Magus Sisters after allowing two essences to be absorbed from fallen sisters.)
- Slumber Party (Defeat the Magus Sisters after allowing three essences to be absorbed from fallen sisters.)

The first time you complete the achievements for this event, you receive 5 AAs as a reward.

If you complete the event under the conditions of all its associated achievements, an additional chest (called what?) spawns.

Bonus chest loot includes 2 Brilliantly/Brightly Pulsating Crystallized Cosgrove Shards + 1 Twinkling Hyperfiligreed Rune + 1 weapon (listed below) + 0-1 Transforming Surprise of Magus Sisters + 0-1 Crystallized Ball of Cosgrove Clay (cultural aug):

The Transforming Surprise of Magus Sisters currently has no use (a quest or reward involving it has yet to be implemented).



Notes About Obtaining the Achievement

A sister's essence is absorbed into the barrier one minute after she dies. If you kill Therias (for example), you'll see:

Daphris absorbes Therias' essence from the barrier.
Feonyss absorbes Therias' essence from the barrier.
Selistras absorbes Therias' essence from the barrier.

There are consequences:

- Every other sister remaining regenerates 20% health.

- Every other sister begins casting her Debilitating debuff more frequently:
----- changes to every 40 seconds after the first sister's essence is absorbed
----- changes to every 35 seconds after the second sister's essence is absorbed
----- changes to every 30 seconds after the third sister's essence is absorbed

- Every other sister hits more targets with her Debilitating debuff:
----- changes to 8 per cast after the first sister's essence is absorbed
----- changes to 12 per cast after the second sister's essence is absorbed
----- changes to 16 per cast after the third sister's essence is absorbed

You also must keep in mind that in order to cure a Debilitating debuff, you need at least two sisters alive (so the inflicted targets can alternate between sisters). If only one sister is alive, anyone inflicted will have to stay out of range or take a death touch.

This is a difficult achievement, but can be done if you time your kills correctly and have enough DPS to kill the last sister before her death touches pile up.
